A pretty good week finding solid films out there…The Blus are all upgrades, for $3.00 each was not going to say no. A Midnight Clear is a puzzler. I have been looking for this on DVD forever and this copy is sadly full screen. The thing is after some research, I found that studio decided to release it as such and it to the best of my knowledge, it hasn’t been reissued here in the States. Oh well, it’s a great small WW2 film that Band of Brothers definitely took some ideas from. I am also sticking my toes into the waters that is Marilyn Monroe films, I have been rethinking my position on her and her acting.

And now….a surprise unboxing!

Many of us in the film community collect and trade or just send films to each other. It’s usually something the other cannot get a hold of easily. Unboxings are usually done on video but since I have basically abandoned that part (for now), here is a virtual unboxing! My buddy Marko Suuronen from the great land of Finland told me he wanted to send me a film he knew I wanted. I said OK and I hope to return the favor. I received the envelope the other day…

ACK! The latest Gaspar Noe film, LOVE, on Finnish DVD. I don’t have a region free stand alone player as of yet but can watch this on my computer no problem. Well, I watch 95% of movies on the PC anyway. Marko, thank you so much for this, can’t wait to see it!
