I bought a whole bunch of DVDs recently. Some Giallos, some Carpenters, Romero's.

The upside: they were super cheap.

The downside: they came from a video store that's closing down.

That's the way to do it. If you want to see, or maybe own, the film, get it cheap.

I recently got some DVDs at a pawn shop during a special sale. The regulars were $1 and blue-ray were $3. I got ($1) the four Alien film pack, the three Spiderman film pack (Sam Rami), Borat, Casino Royale (2006); blue-ray: The Thing (2003), Ender's Game. If I don't want to keep them, I'll sell them back to the pawn, probably for the same price, or donate to my town library. Of course, can't beat checking them out from the library too.

Maybe I'm being sentimental, but with the guy working there being a true cinephile, I would have preferred for the store to remain open for a few more years.

Anyway, no use crying over spilled milk. What's done is done.

I like buying DVDs from Walmart. They're super cheap now and a lot of them you can get for $5 to $10 dollars. Also you'd be amazed at how many great classics on DVD you can order from their website.

I like DVDs better than I do Blu-ray or downloads. I don't trust downloaded movies and older movies look like crap on Blu-ray (Sometimes I feel like they do that on purpose just so we'll be forced to watch all these crappy new movies that nobody really cares about). DVDs may tear up easily but at least they're more affordable and there's a much wider selection of movies and shows available on DVD than on Blu-ray or digital download.

Very nice! What's your top three King books and movies?

I've bum read a few of his books, many to get a taste of his writing style, as I never devoured an entire King book.

I think my top three King film's would be The Shawshank Redemption, Misery and Stand by Me.

Well, Salem's Lot (the book) will always hold a special place for me, because it's the first book of his I read. Second and third books are The Stand and It.

Movies, that's harder because people usually make crappy movies out of his books. I guess Cujo, Silver Bullet, and Storm of the Century.
