I Just Bought … (Non-SW Shopping Diary)

Hit the jackpot yesterday, when I bought these classic ‘Disney’ films on bluray for only £1 each in a local charity shop - in excellent condition, too.

Seeing more of these Disney films turning up in charity shops these days. I think it’s due to Disney+ now being a thing

I think you’re definitely right. If you’re a collector like me though it’s pretty good news though…I’m thinking of getting every Pixar film on Blu Ray. I’ll have to have a look around the charity shops before I buy any new copies. Could save a fortune.

That is exactly what my wife was saying the other day. She has found probably two dozen or more this year at yard sales with prices ranging from 50 cents to a dollar. She would even purchase the ones she already had so that she could pass them along to her nieces and nephews.

I’ve got them all bar the last two (Turning Red and Lightyear). As is the case for me far more often than not with Pixar movies, I’m waiting for the inevitable 2-for-1 promotion. I hate to pay £15 for Pixar films but they’re worth £7.50 for sure. Well, most of the time. Some of the time, anyway. Now and then, you know. :grinning:

Had an upgrade splurge on a bunch of Hammer and Norman J. Warren blurays from Indicator. HMV in the UK had them included in their 2 for £15 promo and I couldn’t resist.

I’m not going to list them all here in case the wife is spying on me. :female_detective:
But there was quite a lot :zipper_mouth_face:

Some new additions:

Sergio Sollima and Charles Bronson from 1970 and the first movie Sollima made after completing his trio of spaghetti westerns.

From 1977, this is hands down imho the best Domenico Paolella film I’ve seen and far more entertaining than either Hate for Hate or Execution.

This is a Lucio Fulci upgrade that I have been wanting to get for a while but wasn’t willing to pay the exorbitant price people wanted for it. Then, the other day, someone posted this brand-new copy on eBay with a starting bid of $22.50 plus shipping, so I bid the minimum and forgot about it thinking I would soon be outbid. Shockingly, after the bidding ended, I got notified that I won.

Taking advantage of Criterion’s sale, such as it is.
