"Riding in Cars with Boys" - Drew Barrimore

It was a lot better than I thought it was going to be; about a girl/woman 's relationships with her father, her husband, and her son. I liked "Thema & Louise" and "A League of Their Own", so your mileage may vary.

Either amazon.com or Columbia House DVD Club. Both are major suppliers of my addiction.

In addition to being a very cute movie, I live very close to where the "Angels" films were made and have been to a lot of the locations.

The Incredibles - tons of interesting special features

Two John Cleese short films:
Romance with a Double Bass - OK
The Strange Case of the End of Civilization as We Know It - Pretty awful.

End of Civilization was quite hilarious when originally broadcast. Perhaps it just hasn't stood the test of time well.

Or I was high.

One of those two, anyway.

As is Blind Lemon Pie.

The Lower Depths, double dvd, one by Jean Renior and one by Kurosawa. Heavy. It took me a couple of tries to get through them.

Also Diabolique Whoa. Very cool. Recommended.

I get in 4-5 movies a week, rentals, library, home collection, borrow from friends, etc. I'll have to make a greater effort to post here.

I guess I'll give them some more time, but I still haven't gotten a DVD yet. I've had enough Peerbux since Oct. 2 (I currently have 14) and there are 11 DVDs in my queue that are allegedly available but none has been sent. It also bothers me that three emails I've sent to their customer support have vanished into the ether.

AC/DC - Live at Donington

I expected better really. It's AC/DC so it isn't bad, but the film has a lot of artifacts in it, all the camera locations didn't impress me much and the songs are ok. Standout is Money Talks. The extras are decent but only for die-hard fans really.

Love that movie! When I first rented it, it was one of those random rents - I like John Cusack and thought what the hell - it was great!

I bought Cinderella last week.

Disney version - first time release on DVD. Lady and the Tramp comes out in February and I am excited about that. It's so sad that I know most of these disney movies word for word.
