Things I got Black Friday 2012

This last Black Friday I got some pretty movies for ridiculously cheap. I also didn't have to face a horde of evil green people to get at them. I shopped on-line.

First up, the buys:

"Speed Racer"

I have never completed this, but I love the first few moments I saw. The film really recreates the look and feel of the show. It likens to the live action version of the anime classic Cutie Honey.

"Becoming Jane"

Anne Hathaway excells in her portrayal of original chick lit writer Jane Austen. Her personal story and struggle rivals that of her own books.

"Prometheus - 4 Disc"

Originally titled Aliens: The Engineers. The Alien Prequel/Stand Alone movie blu ray set claims to have 7 hours worth of bonus features. I am most looking forward to the 40 minutes worth of deleted footage.  This movie is quickly becoming one of my favorites. I put it up there with Fritz Lang's Metropolis. It's sitting comfortably right next to my Alien Anthology Blu Rays.

"Alien Anthology" 

I've always had a love for this film series. Maybe it's the design and look of the films combined with the awesome writing? Maybe it's the time and care that at least the first two had in it's production? I don't know. Either way, I got all 4 films, complete with special edition cuts and hella' bonus features.


The movie that freaked Disney Studios out because it was that good. The movie that opened up Fox Animation Studios. While producer Don Bluth's masterpiece will always be The Secret of NIHM, this film, like NIHM, will truly stand the test of time.

"Moulin Rouge"

And ahhhh what a classic in it's own right already. The story of love, fer realz. Set in early 1900's Paris and told through the music of our time.... kinda.

...And now the Warner Archives purchases. Warner Archives sells exclusive movies through their webpage that they produce on disc on demand. These classics were being sold for 10 DVDs for real cheap.

"The Phantom Tollbooth"

A long forgotten classical animated musical. I see this as male lead Wonderland story. 

"Heidi's Song"

A musical version of Heidi. This was the first instance of this story I experienced when I was really really young, and then I never heard of it again. Gladly, Warner Archives has it. :-)

"Flinstones: I Yabba Dabba Do"

Pebbles and Bam Bam finally get married. This animated telefilm is so grounded and real, and not to mention funny. Starring a pre-Will and Grace Megan Mullaly (Karen Walker) as the voice of Pebbles Flintsone.

"Flintstone: Hollyrock-A-Bye Baby"

Pebbles and Bam Bam finally get a pair of twin babies. If your husband is named Bam Bam, it's innevitable really.

"Rockin' with Judy Jetson"

The Jetsons appear in this pop musical that features around my personal favorite Jetson, Judy. The future apparently is so 80's and a must for those that hated Tiffani voicing Judy in the theatrical Jetsons movie.

Now, onto shopping for my loved ones ;-)
