I wrote a little about The Skyhawk on here a little while ago.

I got this in the Marital Arts Movie Marathon collection which has a Mandarin and English dub. There is a little bit of blur with motion so I am wondering if this suffers from PAL-to-NTSC improper conversion issues. It comes with the trailer.

PAL-NTSC but not bad for price. Asscociation is one weird messed up flick!

Hung, a couple of those Joy Sales titles are OOP.

Where did you find them?

I'm wondering that too (eg Robotrix), I remember seeing that movie on a butchered (I imagine) VHS in the 90's.

Robotrix was from a private seller (I put a request on a Finnish forum and found someone who was willing to sell his copy for an acceptable price), the other two are not OOP (both from DDDhouse).

edit: well, could be OOP, but DDD has them.

I saw The Lego Movie in the theater (the one I got was a Target exclusive). All three of the Family Favorites I have on DVD so this is an upgrade. The rest I have not.

From Arrow, and for a very decent price, too... £34.99 minus £7.49 worth of reward points from my previous order.

The Japanese dvd set costs £150 :lol:

I've seen 12 Year a Slave in the theater (I bought the book as well; yes the link is my review). It is the only one of the bunch I've seen.

I like Jean Arthur and I like George Steven's as a director (Giant, Shane, A Place in the Sun, Gunga Din, really a great director) so The More The Merrier was something I wanted to see for awhile.

Joseph L. Mankiewicz directed Suddenly Last Summer. Another great director: The Barefoot Contessa, All About Eve, Guys and Dolls.

I have a decent collection of Woody Allen films. So glad to find Interiors used.

Every once in a while I watch a Almodovar film. Talk to Her is my favorite.

Death on the Nile I bought for the actors, but I do not know when I'll get to it.

Song of Sparrows is OOP.
Amour is the only AA nominated film of that year I had not seen.
Three Smart Girls is also a AA nominated film.
Easy Living is the only one I've seen of the bunch. I like Jean Arthur. She has one of the unique voices of her time.

It's interesting to look at the art that goes along with what films you ordered :)

Modern Problems is the only one I have seen, though it has been years.
I got The Hunter because it was recommended to me.
Go Fish was a completely blind buy (I think a dollar).
I got Terminator Salvation because I want to see it before the new one.
Always like watching The Peanut's shorts/movies.

I really wish that upgrade would get here in the States. Criterion's next Taiwanese film (which I will get) is Yang's A Brighter Summer Day.

Its been so long since I've seen ATOZ but it's very long-winded IIRC. Good film though.

Inner Sanctum is an OOP release. I was happy to find it used, though my copy does not have the greatest box (the discs are perfect luckily.)
My friend recommended God Bless America. No idea when I'll get to it.
Been working on a few silent movies lists which White Shadows in the South Sea is on a few.
I'm not sure why I got Devil's Island.
Ebert was a big fan of Brick Lane (plus it was a dollar.)
