I've been eyeing that Ghibli. Also, I saw Ponyo the other night and I'm still stunned by how fantastic and surreal it was. Miyazaki never fails to push his seemingly limitless creativity further than I expect him to. The plot is a little thin, mostly a retread of the structure in My Neighbor Totoro, though intriguing differences are there.

Continuing my focus on dual-format releases, while they're still available.

I've seen none of these not counting The Tingler which I have a separate release of.  Not sure if I will get to any of these this week since I'm still watching mostly Asian horror films mixed in with comedy horrors (well some of these below fit in that mixed genre).

I still want that Castle Collection, let me know what you think. Manhunter is quite good, and House really scared the hell out of me when I was young.

 

Some purchases:

I really need to get on these MoC releases I don't have. Was lucky to notice Michael in print at Amazon UK. For Tinker Tailor and Smiley's People, I am reading and enjoying the George Smiley books at the moment. Amazon UK exchange rates seem more forgiving than in the past.

A lot of good films there.  The two I kept are two that I would like.  I will check Target to see if they have those (I have not seen them before.)  I  think Angel Face and Out of the Past are the only two I've seen out of those eight.
 

 

Unfortunately, every Target I go to has the same 5-6 TCM sets. The two you want I had to order on Amazon. I had seen and loved The Bad and the Beautiful recently, and I already liked Lust For Life and The Man with the Horn. For Mitchum, I wanted Home From the Hill after seeing it several times on TCM over the years. Angel Face and Sundowners I have not seen.

I'm buying a lot lately:

Sorry so many, I will try and tone it down. A lot of these are cheap at Target right now, and I'm behind on films from the last few years. I cannot recommend The Red House highly enough for EGR fans.
