However last night I was more than happy to sit down and watch The Enigma of Kasper Hauser!

Speaking of which, I love Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion and Clueless as much as I love The Enigma of Kasper Hauser. They're funny, charming and a nice satirical streak running through them - just like another favourite of mine, Mean Girls. Although, the queen of them all has to be Heathers.

As for Grease 2, I'm siding with Michelle Pfeiffer and her kids on that one, I'm afraid.

Welcome to the expensive world of being multi-region! ;)

I get 90% of my US discs from Amazon UK market place sellers All Your Music and Movie Mars (they're usually the cheapest). I then use Blowitoutahere on eBay for Criterions as they have semi-regular sales (although AYM on Amazon have just had a Criterion sale too) and Diabolik for specialist items or stuff that could be problematic with customs as they mark down the price of the item to below the threshold. They also have excellent customer service and very short delivery lead times. I bought my Ferox Blu from them - although it's wise to order more than one item to save on shipping.

Thanks for that. Some good info there!

Yeah, I get the whole re-appraisal of films / self-confessed moron thing. My next review to be posted in the Noir thread is actually for Brighton Rock, which I first watched when I was about 13/14 and didn't think much of it - in fact I found it quite boring. Now having re-appraised it almost 10 years later I realise what a fantastic film it really is and I want to travel back in time and slap my 13/14 year old self... however that can be said about so many things and I'd probably be suffering severe brain damage at this point in time if my future self had been able to go back and slap my past self for various acts of stupidity.

I sometimes think back to when I was 15/16(sooo long ago) and wonder what I'd think of my taste in entertainment today, my horror vibe has remained kinda the same but I'm ashamed to say back then I wouldn't even entertain the thought of watching a 50s musical or an episode of Columbo even if you paid me:lol::lol: I tried to sit through The Maltese Falcon when I was a teen, turned it off and thought it slow and boring:lol: A more mature me can appreciate things so much more openly.

When i was younger i just couldn't watch b&w films. Now some of my favourite films are b&w.
