Today, I've managed to snag all three of the (original) Star Wars Trilogy at the local Target for around $16.95 each.

I've added Dodgeball: Unrated, as well as Beavis & Butt-Head Do America: Special Edition.

I was going to get Team America: World Police (unrated), but I didn't since I'm kind of cash-strapped right now.

Seriously though, those are next on my "DVDs I must purchase list". They're just so damn expensive right now ;_;. Although paying $30 for Return of the Jedi is worth the price if it means not having to see Hayden Christensen's creepy learing face at the end -_-

At least we get the following:

0. No "A New Hope" subtitle
1. Han firing first
2. No Jabba scene
3. The original (and creepy-looking, compared to the 2004 edition) Emperor
4. The Ewok celebration song (and let's face it, Ewoks easily kicks the Gungan's asses)
5. No Hayden "Mannequin Skywalker" (coutresy of Clerks II) Christensen

Of course, the picture quality is crappy, but it's WAY better than the VHS (and probably, the laserdisc) version.

The Flash: I remember this from when it was first run back in 1991. And I remember seeing two of the three videos. But really, most of what I recall is this guy running around in a red suit with a lightning bolt on the chest. Oh, and the cool animation at the opening of each episode.

Harvey Birdman: Attorney At Law Volume 2, a.k.a my guilty pleasure. I have NO idea why I like this show, but I wish the third season wasn't on so late so I could watch it; although some of the previews have irked me a bit. I mean, couldn't they show it at an early time? It's certainly not as offensive as other crap on Adult Swim.

That channel has seriously gone to heck, though; when AS first started, it had the best block of shows, with back to back Home Movies even, then nothing.

Last DVD I bought was a $15 Dick Tracy/Dragnet set. It contains the first Dick Tracy serial, the four Dick Tracy movies (two of which have Ralph Byrd reprise his role as Tracy) and some Dragnet episodes.

My boyfriend recently bought me a copy of Fast and the Furious 3: Tokyo Drift as a late birthday present. It's not that great of a movie, but we only saw it in the theatre and got the DVD because Keiko Kitagawa is in it.

*slightly OT* LOL I went to see that movie just because of her XD . She's in it, for, what, maybe three minutes tops ?

Oh, and she says ONE SENTENCE IN IT! Whoohoo XD !

Ahem. Let's just hope if she gets in another movie that has something like an international release her role gets more... presence. :P

The Girl From Tomorrow: A fondly-remembered kids show from 1990. The story revolves around Alana, a 31st-century teenager who gets abducted by Silverthorn, a villain from the 26th century (and is played by a likeable guy who has the misfortune of being named John Howard). Sent back in time to 1990, she has to recruit the help of a Sydney family to retrieve her Time Capsule, or remain stuck in a world with a crappy atmosphere. Followed by a second series, Tomorrow's End, which concerned the effect that Silverthorn's time journey has on Alana's future.

Gunsmith Cats: Haven't properly viewed this one, but I did see an episode about 6 years ago, back when I first got into non-Sailor Moon anime (SBS had just completed two almost-simultaneous runs of Neon Genesis Evangelion). So I figured what the hey.

Twin Peaks: David Lynch puts weird shit on TV. I hadn't seen the series before, but the slow pace and general weirdness got me into it. In case you haven't heard of the show before, it's a slower-paced, weirder, ancestor of Desperate Housewives where a seemingly-idyllic town comes unglued following the murder of local prom queen Laura Palmer. TRIVIA: Sheryl Lee (aka Laura Palmer) later went on to play the original Mary Alice Young in Housewives

I got the 14-disc Ultimate Superman DVD Collection.

A note of warning, though, from Warner Home Video:

Bonus content was omitted from the "Superman III: Deluxe Edition" in the 14-disc "Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition." Furthermore, disc one of "Superman: The Movie - Four Disc Special Edition" did not include the Dolby Digital 2.0 mix. Neither disc is known to be physically defective in any way. Warner Home Video wants to extend apologies to all of our loyal Superman fans who've waited so patiently for these great collections and has taken immediate steps to correct these errors with the intention of standing behind our product 100%.

Replacement discs can be obtained by calling: 800-553-6937 between the hours of 7 AM and 7 PM Pacific Standard Time. The exchange program applies only to purchases of the "Superman III: Deluxe Edition" in the "Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition" and to disc one of "Superman: The Movie - Four Disc Special Edition," available as a single title, as well as in "The Christopher Reeve Superman Collection" and in the "Superman Ultimate Collector's Edition."


After I learned of this, I immediately called the 800 number, and I had to wait about 20-30 minutes. If you're planning on buying it for Christmas, I would wait until they release the version with the corrected discs.
