Cheap DVD buys

movies are cool. here is a place to talk about how cool they are. or maybe how much they suck, sometimes. like that fucking piece of shit 'mac and me'. worst fucking movie ever, a two-hour ad for fucking coca-cola.

Cabin in the Woods at WM for $3.00.
I'd never seen it, but heard it was a decent horror/satire. I enjoyed it.

Big. Tom Hanks is a man child.

Cannonball Run. One of my early guilty pleasure movies from when I was a small lad. In hindsight, it looks like they had wayyyy more fun filming this movie than the actual finished product. You can tell absolutely no one is taking the movie seriously.

Target had several Blu-Ray copies of Passengers (with Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence) on the clearance shelf for $6.96.
They were marked "As Is" but they were all still shrink-wrapped with the cardboard sleeve. The only noticeable thing was is that they had a Target exclusive bonus disc inside, but I'm not sure that's a reason to clearance it out.
I know the flick didn't do well or get great reviews, but I like both actors, so I figured what the hell.

The trailer made it look as though they were going to get it on at one point, maybe the cut you got will have 13min of extended nude/scantily clad jlaw footage.

If Target has too many of an exclusive at one store, they'll do that. I could army build one of their exclusive Hunger Games blu-rays.

Big Lots had a lot stuff for $3 or less. Almost all Blu-Ray.

Bad Teacher - I forgot I already had it, but this one is a BR/DVD combo pack.

Bulletproof Monk - Only $1.88. With Chow Yun-Fat and Stiffler. You forgot this movie even existed, didn't you?

In the Valley of Elah - Good cast (Tommy Lee Jones, Charlize Theron, and Susan Sarandon). Kind of wanted to see it when it came out.

The Watch - The Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill bomb that had no idea what kind of comedy it wanted to be - goofy neighborhood watch movie, or alien invasion comedy?

Observe and Report - The mall cop movie that wasn't Paul Blart, rated R, and darkly funny.

Immortals - $2.88. The ancient Roman Gods movie with pre-Superman Henry Cavill.

Martha Marcy May Marlene - DVD for $1.88. The movie that got Elizabeth Olsen noticed in Hollywood, about a girl that escapes from a cult. I remember it being really good.

WM had a bunch of cheap DVDs for between $2 and $7 in giant bins. I guess they were from Black Friday or whatever.

I bought
Draft Day
Life. The recent space horror movie with Gylenhaal and Ryan Reynolds.
Point Break. The remake.
The Nice Guys.
Transformers 5. I forget what it’s called.

The Nice Guys was really good. Too bad it bombed.

I had already seen it, which is why I bought it. It’s a nice complement to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.
I’d also seen Draft Day and enjoyed it.
The other three I haven’t seen. But fuck it for $2 bucks.

Under the Skin (Blu-Ray) - $1.05

Was going to pay $5.99 for it at Best Buy, but when it was rung up, I had a $5 reward, so it was $.99 + tax.

Butt nekkid Scarlet Johansson for a buck.

I looked at bluray of Insomnia from the $5 bin - Chris Nolan movie with Pacino - but put it back as I hadn't heard anything (and the boss was with me, scrutinizing my purchasing). Yay or nay?
