What are you watching on DVD?

Post by Wayne »

For those like me that barely ever watch actual tv....

I'm still working my way through the american gothic/horror soap from the 60's, that is Dark Shadows.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Shadows

I started it in May, and i'm up to Ep 654 of 1,225 episodes. I'm addicted! :lol:

I used to watch dark shadows on one of the old cable channels, bravo if im not mistaken. (or was it sci fi?)
Recent stuff ive been watching.... watched a download of white out this evening, wasnt too bad as hollywood goes, kept me watching without snoozing for an hour and a half anyway.
other DVDs recently: first men in the moon (60s version of course!), spookies, nightmare on elm street 1 and the louis theroux collection again, he cracks me up at any rate.

*edit:I just noticed that whiteout lost 30 mil at the box office and seems to be rated as one of the worst films of 2009! Wow, I really didnt think it was that bad, especially compared to some of the shite that gets critical acclaim! Oh well, I suppose ive got weird taste.

Some people really slag Tarantino off, but i have enjoyed nearly all of his movies. He has great taste in films as well. Not many people namecheck Cleopatra Wong!!!

Someone gave me a copy of Inglorious Bastards because i'm a bit of a WWII film buff. I watched about half of it, but it proved to be just as shit as every other film he's made that i've seen, so i gave it up as a bad job.
I'm still trying to find somebody who wants it. :P

Fair play matey! I cant really comment as I havent gotten round to watching that one yet. The real classic for me is Pulp fiction. I never really get bored of that film. Astonishingly I actualy like Bruce Willis's performance which is very odd for me as I cannot stand anything else he has been in!

Even if his films arent to everyone's taste he has been responsible for getting some really obscure cult gems reissued on DVD for people to enjoy, which is no bad thing in my books.

Fair enough. Each to his own, as they say.
I don't get the love for that film at all. Infact it was that one that put me off Tarantino. I gave him a second chance after disliking Resevoir Dogs, but everyone raved about Pulp Fiction so much that i realized that i didn't belong in the Tarantino universe.
