Didn't they just release a 4K Suspiria two years ago?

I think it was a Blu Ray from a 4K remaster.

I am incredibly tempted by that Godzilla box set as a fan from my youth, but I don't know if I can justify a $160 purchase solely based on the fear that it will go out of print.

Does anyone know if the Arrow C.H.U.D. Blu Ray has the incredible audio commentary track? I remember borrowing the DVD from the library like a decade ago solely to listen to it.

And finally maybe I will go back and listen to the the Night at the Museum commentary track from the film writers. The first few minutes was them going "why would anyone want to listen to us, they must have slipped on the DVD remote." Had to go something else at the time but I got far enough in to find out it was adapted from a kid's book, sorta.

I mean, Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant from Reno 911 wrote those movies, so itíll probably be a good time.

I've made an exception for series in my otherwise alphabetical organization solely because of the Sabata movies. It's a lot easier to put Sabata, Adios Sabata and Return of Sabata under S than to cycle around the rest of my collection.

To this day I do not understand why Big Trouble in Little China bombed so hard. It might be my favorite movie. It can come off as pretty stereotype-y but I heard James Hong and Peter Kwong talk about it at Gencon one year and they talked about Carpenter in really glowing terms in that regard.

Itís my favorite movie too, itís so vibrant and quotable and fun.

I was one of the lucky ones that Amazon sent the Arrow edition of Django last year to before Blue Underground wigged out. It's a great disc, and Django is probably my favorite western of all time.

I managed to grab it too and it looks really good. The Sartana box set is also incredible for a bunch of movies that have always been on multi-movie compilation DVDs.

A reminder that the only reason that the Post Office is underfunded is because Congress passed a law requiring them to find their pensions 75 years in advance. It is absolutely an effort to make a public service lovely and prop up private carriers.

That's what I'm doing since I really don't think $100 USD was worth it to me for the film and I'm guessing a US release is imminent given how hard they made it to import.

Yeah this was my rationale too. I love Dawn of the Dead but I genuinely don't know if I love ANY movie $100 worth, especially when I need to pay the rent.

Also, Django UHD w/ Texas, Adios pre-order is up on BestBuy.com. This is a blind buy, but my buddy says it's one of the best spaghetti westerns he had ever seen when it came around our neck of the woods a couple years back. I'm doubly pumped because I missed the original Blu-Ray, and I expect Arrow is gonna do some good work here.

It's definitely good. I wish I hadn't FOMO'ed hard on getting the initial Blu Ray when Blue Underground had their lawsuit, I would have loved a 4K.

So, I'm looking for an alternative means of storing my movie collection. I got rid of the tall Ikea Billy bookcases that I used for over a decade to store them, and I've also cut way back on my movie collection. For a while I would buy pretty much any movie I saw and liked, even if I never planned to watch it again.

I am in need of a new media console, so I thought it would be great if I could find one with drawers deep enough to store the blu-rays spine up. The width of a bluray case is just over 5 inches, but most media consoles with drawers, the drawers are 5 inches or less. Shockingly, I've only managed to find one with drawers deep enough, but it's kind of more than I would like to spend, especially once you take into account shipping and tax.

https://www.cb2.com/congo-media-credenza/s559147

Does anybody have any suggestions? Am I just not thinking outside the box enough? I did move into a new place with these built in-shelves in the wall that are nearly 2 feet deep, I suppose I could get some kind of basket or something to store them in that way. I know this is kind of the antithesis of this thread, given that so many of you have entire walls in their homes dedicates to their movie collection. But it's where I am right now. Anyone have any thoughts?

My new solution is these fabric bins put in the bottom of an IKEA entertainment center. They fit two rows of Blu Rays snugly.

Showdown In Little Tokyo is also a fantastic blind buy from the Warner sale. Just an absolute bonkers and intensely homoerotic 80s/90s action movie thatís like 78 minutes long.

Ended up getting After The Thin Man, Key Largo, Curse of Frankenstein and Dracula AD 1972.

My favorite thing about movies that end up as cult classics is that the people making them were so convinced that they were making The Coolest poo poo Imaginable. Sometimes that enthusiasm wins you over and sometimes your reaction is ďoh my god this person thought that the goofiest poo poo was cool.Ē Itís a thing that you canít fake or (like Fran said) the heart of the movie isnít there.

It was filmed here in Houston and I actually got to see it on a big screen last year pre-covid and it owns. Between that and Red Scorpion, Lundgren may be my favorite 80s/90s action hero not named Jackie Chan.

This was my white whale Saturday afternoon TV movie. Dolph Lundgren fighting an alien drug dealer who looked like Christopher Lambert in Mortal Kombat.

I'd say Deep Red is either the best giallo of all time, or at least the second best. Only Bava's Blood and Black Lace may be better, but it's a tough call. Suspiria and Inferno are my favorite Argento films but they aren't giallo.

Iím probably going to blind buy it since the horror goons have said that the full extended cut is the only way to watch it. My problem with the Argento Iíve watched is the lack of characterization and, from what everyoneís said, the cut scenes are essential character stuff.
