Always loved the Mummy films, first one in particular. Third one's poo though.
Unfortunately I have to say I was thoroughly disappointed with The Searchers, one of the most overrated films I've ever seen.

I agree with you on The Searchers. I was very disappointed, but I've always wanted to give it another shot to see if I missed something.

My local Blockbusters closes down today and reduced all its stock by 90%. Not that much left but picked up:

The Raven (BD)
Mad House (the Amicus one)
Human Centipede 2

It was quite sad to see the place so empty, especially for the staff, who have always been really friendly and helpful. What really irked me is that one customer was having a go at the staff because there were a few items that were 'only' reduced by 50%, which they were claiming was false advertising - she was so annoyed she stormed out of the shop! I just thought that was the most petty and insensitive thing I'd ever seen, moaning about a few quid to people who will be out of a job this time tomorrow :tsk:.

Recent pre-orders and orders:

Edit: Went on a day trip to Bruges a few days ago and didn't get chance to look in MediaMarkt or Saturn (FNAC was rubbish!) for the WARLOCK blu ray... So, I've just had a nose on and came away with these! Shouldn't really be spending so much near christmas but oh well. Came to just over 11 each including shipping.

Bargain titles.

I'm on a roll!

Went to the market Sunday morning and picked up all this for $20

The Session 9 DVD, Ok Computer CD and Reservoir Dogs Soundtrack were 3 for $10
The Godfather VHS set I picked up for $10, as soon as I saw it, thinking it was just the 3 movies, but it was actually the the chronological TV edit of the first two movies, which will be interesting to watch. And the woman noticed I recognized the Nostromo hat, and tried to give it to me for free, but I gave her a dollar as I can't take things for free like that without feeling guilty.

Also, needed to pick up a copy of On The Waterfront for school, so I managed to convince my parents to buy me a copy worth keeping, so from the B&N Criterion sale I got the blu ray of On The Waterfront, and also personally bought the Criterion Heavens Gate blu ray.

These will be my first two Criterion blu rays :D

I really liked Session 9. May I ask what The Godfather Epics is? Is it a soundtrack or something ?

I watched Session 9 back when I was first getting into horror, based solely on the knowledge it was in an abandoned asylum. And I loved it. Been waiting for ages for a blu ray, but can't argue for the price I got the DVD.

And the Godfather Epic is 3 VHS boxset of the Novel for Television edit, the first two films chronologically, but I think it's missing the extra 45 minutes of scenes, and it may be edited down. But glad to have it any way, huge fan of the first two :)

Congrats! Definitely two fantastic titles to start with. I just want to warn you, they are quite addictive. I went a little crazy in the recent B&N sale, just waiting for everything to show up before posting my haul.
