Being a fan of Steve McQueen, I rented the first season of Wanted: Dead or Alive, which recently became available on DVD. Fun to see Steve in something new. The series is cheesy, but decent. It's funny how all the criminals and their families tell the absolute truth when questioned!

LOTR: The Return of the King

I tried to get around to watching this last night.

Relatively early last night.

I was asleep before the opening scene with the ring ended.

I'll try again tonight.

I have watched it many times on my front projector on a 7' screen with a nice surround system and a big enough subwoofer to piss off the neighbors.
I have even watched all 3 LOTR EE movies in a marathon session and it is a marathon.

I rewatched War of the Worlds today just for the special effects. Movies are really movies on the big screen where it becomes as much of an experience as a viewing.

Indulged myself last night and purchased and watched Paint Your Wagon. Real nostalgic comfort viewing. Favorite songs: Born Under a Wand'rin' Star, They Call the Wind Maria...I enjoyed every minute, and there are a lot of them in this movie.

Recent purchases and screenings: Godzilla 2000, The Muppet Movie, Holiday Inn and Going My Way.

Recent rental screenings: Miss Congeniality 2, War of the Worlds, Mr and Mrs Smith, Fantasic Four, Madagascar... others insignificant enough to escape my memory.

Upcoming purchases: Sin City, Kung Fu Hustle, March of the Penguins. Purchased but ungiven: Revenge of the Sith.

I got a defective or scratched Sin City disc from PeerFlix... I guess I'll wait to see the director's cut about to come out.

Well, I did it again a couple of days ago and on a snowy winter's day I decided to do another marathon viewing of LOTR on the big screen and it didn't end until after 10:30 p.m. I still enjoyed it. At the moment I am watching the director's cut of Tombstone onthe big screen. I think it is one of the best westerns ever made.

You probably don't really hate LOTR.

I've read the books a number of times since college in the early '70s. If it was not for my big screen and the surround sound I would not have watched the trilogy so many times. It's just that when I'm looking for a movie that will be spectacular on the big screen I seem to grab LOTR alot. I am at this point, though, getting LOTRed out.

Well, it's not really a DVD, but I'm looking forward to this.



$0.95 Best of The Original Avengers - 3 VHS pack
ISBN:1402853335 Dec 27, 2005

It's part of my Barnes and Noble order.

Quote:
With intriguing comments and specially recorded introductions from Patrick Macnee, the original John Steed, these episodes feature the best of The Avengers leading ladies. Mrs. Emma Peel, Mrs. Cathy Gale and Ms. Tara King - independent, glamorous and resourceful - represents the very essence of the The Avengers adventurous appeal. Each of the six classic episodes included here are Patrick Macnee's favorite, collected together complete and uncut for the first
time.
The description mentions that the episodes are uncut, and I'm trying to figure out what was cut in the first place. Hopefully it has something to do with Diana Rigg and a wardrobe malfunction with the cat suit.

BTW, it's still available in the sale annex.

I got a Hello Kitty DVD from my future mother-in-law for Xmas. I haven't watched it yet, but I'm sure it kicks all kinds of ass.

A couple weeks after I wrote this I received Old School.

In last month I've received Harry Potter 3 (both discs), Kissing Jessica Stein, To Die For, and Taxi Driver.

So, while I still think the computers that are calculating their "short wait" and "available now" ratings are smoking something, I am much more charitably inclined toward the enterprise and I no longer feel I sent my own discs off into the void to get nothing in return.
