DVDs To Buy*

*If you know, funds were unlimited and/or we were able to convince ourselves that it counted as "research."

- Slacker (1991, dir. Richard Linklater) Because as Wiley points out, who wants a special edition DVD without Rick's commentary on it? Thus, we're boycotting lesser product in favor of Rick endorsed discs like this one.

- Martin Scorsese Collection: After Hours, Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Goodfellas, Mean Streets, Who's That Knocking At My Door? Gotta love the Marty.

- The Leopard (1963, dir. Luchino Visconti) Maybe if we can put it on pause and get up to make ourselves a cup of coffee or something, CC will do better through the entire ball sequence.

- The Alfred Hitchcock Signature Collection: Strangers On A Train Two Disc Edition, North by Northwest, Dial M for Murder, Foreign Correspondent, Suspicion, the Wrong Man, Stage Fright, I Confess, Mr. and Mrs. Smith If only we could remove Mr. and Mrs. Smith from the box set, leave it aside like old cheese. Worst Romantic Comedy ever. Seriously.

- Clerks (1994, dir. Kevin Smith) A three disc, 10th anniversary edition might make us forgive for the indignity of watching Jersey Girl in the theaters. Maybe.

Grand total (without taxes and with the discount off the list price) = $201.80
