• Saturday Night Live: The Best of Cheri Oteri
It's about friggin' time! I can't believe they have "Best of" DVDs for some of the suckier SNL
members, but it took them THIS LONG to release a Cheri Oteri
Best of. Good compilation, but a lot of favorites were missing. Better than nothing.
• Mission Hill: The Complete Series
Oh man, I was so excited when I came across this 80's slasher on DVD. I love "discovering" 80's slashers that I haven't
seen (it's getting harder and harder to find ones that I haven't seen!). The 80's was THE era of the slasher. The look/feel just can't be duplicated. This one was A LOT of fun. Gory, creative murders.
• Dr. Katz Professional Therapist: Season 1
• The Facts of Life: Season 1 & 2
• The Eyes of Laura Mars
• Grease 2
Wow. I know what your'e thinking "Grease 2 SUCKED!" Yeah, I have to admit it is seriously lacking in a lot of areas (Michelle Pfeiffer
is AWFUL), particularly the music and casting. However, it does have it's moments. Besides, Maxwell Caulfield
is so friggin' HOT and I have a special place in my heart for the 'Reproduction
' musical number.
• The Incredible Hulk: The Television Series Ultimate Collection
• The Ringer
• Dick Tracy
• Tristan + Isolde
There's something about James Franco
that I sometimes find attractive, then sometimes not. He is definitely beautiful in this movie. I think it's the hair. Rufus Sewell
also looks hot in this one as well. He's another one that has that on again/off again attractiveness (re: Carrington
). Ridley Scott
was the executive producer of this movie. I love his work.
• Thank God It's Friday
• Cheerleader Camp
• It's Alive
• Ghostbusters 1 & 2
• The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother
• From a Whisper to a Scream
I rented this movie on video back in the 80's, under the title The Offspring
. I had no idea it was on DVD, mainly because of the title change (apparently it's the original theatrical title). This is one of those movies that genuinely creeps/grosses me out. Check it out, if you dare.
• Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
I've been wanting this DVD for years, but refused to settle for the full-screen version. Finally found this one at the pawn shop for $4. Woo hoo! One of those movies that I love to watch on a lazy weekend afternoon.

• The Agatha Christie Miss Marple Movie Collection
• The Dark Crystal
• The Hills Have Eyes
• Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
I'll be blogging about the Harry Potter
movies later. I still can't believe I've been converted.
• Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
• Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
• Snoopy, Come Home
• Elvira's Horror Classics: The House on Haunted Hill/Night of the Living Dead
Longing for the memories that only her 80's TV show Movie Macabre
could bring to the table, I was hoping that this volume (1 of 3) of Elvira's Horror Classics
would be just what the doctor ordered. And though I don't regret buying this DVD, it just isn't the same. The transition between Elvira's
comments during the movie just aren't as seamless as the TV show. They border on disruptive. Oh well, they say you can't go home again.
• Big Trouble in Little China
• Hello Again
• A Lot Like Love
I detest Ashton Kutcher
, but this movie looks funny, so I bought it. Besides, I like Amanda Peet
• Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
• Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events
The only reason I bought this movie was for Jake Gyllenhaal
. Otherwise, I could care less.
• The Cave
• I Love Your Work
I've been interested in this movie ever since I read about it going into production. LOTS of people I love in it, primarily Giovanni Ribisi
and Vince Vaughn
Again, another one of those movies I already know I'm going to like, based on the trailer. The film has a great, rich, dark look to it.

I know I'll be renting this thing eventually, so why not buy it used for the same price I'd end up paying to rent it? I watched part of the featurette and now more than ever, I'm deeply disturbed by it. This one is going to be one of those movies that I save until I'm feeling brave.
• Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were Rabbit
• Raising Helen
One of my friends LOVES John Corbett
. I thought he had some cute moments in Sex and the City
, but he's REALLY cute in this movie. Favorite scene: "I'm a sexy man of God, and I know it.
" So cocky. So cute.
• The Critic: The Complete Series
This and the following boxsets were used at the pawn shop and in great condition. I don't really even watch Angel
(something about Tom Welling
bugs the crap outta me), but for $15 each, I couldn't resist. I figure if I don't like 'em I can always sell them on eBay
• Angel: Season 4
• Smallville: Season 1

I bought this DVD-R and The Boy Who Cried Werewolf
. Never seen Superstition
, but have ALWAYS wanted to. Another one of those 80's horror movies that I missed.
• The Boy Who Cried Werewolf
This movie has always creeped me OUT. Still does. ::shiver:: Werewolves creep me out.
