I Just Bought … (Non-SW Shopping Diary)


I haven’t seen this, but up where my sister lives their are quite a number of the “criterion” collection available at the local Barnes and noble.

Sadly I’m in Denmark so am far away from all the fun :frowning: Those two above are from the UK branch of Criterion by the way.

A couple of releases turned up today aswell:

Beat Girl

(Phil H) #2604

Picked up a couple of 70s western Blurays from Fopp yesterday. Only £6 each so well worth it I think.


I have not seen that Argento film, but I have quite a few of his films on my watch list.

How on Earth do you find the time to watch all the stuff you get? :smile:

(Søren) #2609

Well, the short answer is, I don’t :slight_smile: My movies-to-watch pile is growing at the moment it’s true but the purchases will slow down at some point and then I’ll catch up, or die trying. One or the other :slight_smile:

What is that… 34, 35 films in a week??

As they say in Full Metal Jacket: Hardcore, man. F*cking hardcore. :slight_smile:

Breakin’ and Breakin’ 2. Oh boy, those take me back. Back to when Hip-Hop hadn’t quite become a mainstream cultural touchstone yet, it was still a niche interest, our niche interest, and those films (along with Wild Style, Beat Street and Style Wars) were shaping who we were. Ah, we were such numbskulls back then. :grinning:

You know, every “part 2” sequel ever made sounds 150% better immediately, if you add the suffix “Electric Boogaloo”. That’s not just my opinion btw, that’s a scientific fact. Try it: Godfather pt.II: Electric Boogaloo, Omen II: Electric Boogaloo… see? It even works with sequels that don’t exist yet. Look: Sophie’s Choice 2: Electric Boogaloo. Cool! :grin:

(Søren) #2611

Well, there was a going-out-of business sale at an online store so got carried away :slight_smile:

Never saw either Breakin’-movie but I’m a sucker for 80s movies and tv-series. Am going through Miami Vice at the moment and boy that brings back some memories. A fantastic series then and now.

The Great Silence 2: Electric Boogaloo …Well blimey you’re right :slight_smile:
