Well, after a few years of searching, I finally found it. Veronica Mars: Season 1 on DVD. I'd have looked online, but F.Y.E. spoiled me with having seasons 2 and 3 really cheap, while iTunes had season 1 for around $40, with no extras. Surprisingly, there's only a 20+ minute deleted/extended scenes reel and an extended version of the pilot as extras, and the extended pilot replaces the aired pilot.
 

As a professional tanuki (I'm a Japanese mythological animal, and a good luck charm), I have an alarm clock built into me somewhere. I also look like a stuffed animal. And you thought your life was tough......

Ghost Story! 1981 horror film with what may be the most generic title for a film about a ghost story ever (it's obstensively about a group of characters who tell each other ghost stories, but they only do this once in the whole film for about a minute. Calling it Goodness Me The Borg Queen Was...Perky In Her Youth would be just as relevant a title).

Enjoyable enough film with some nice gore effects, lovely wintery scenery and top performances from the cast of old hams. Only mildly let down by the fact it feels as everyone involved thought they were making a much better and more serious film.

Bone Tomahawk - Flew under my radar, a Western/Horror starring Kurt Russell about a sheriff who hunts down a group of cannibals after they attack his town and kidnap some townspeople. It's said to be really good.

Not quite bought yet, but it's nice to see The Big Sleep finally get a blu ray release in the States, alongside a couple of Hitchcock's I don't own (I Confess and The Wrong Man).

Also, whilst I knew about a ridiculously expensive Japanese Columbo blu ray set, I was mildly surprised to see Germany have released just one episode in HD, the first Patrick McGoohan one. It's brilliant, but you'd think that if they were going to put out one as a film it would have been the one they could slap "Directed by Stephen Spielberg*" on the front of.










*But in German of course.

The Martian: Awesome film starring Matt Damon, about a botanist astronaut who is stranded on Mars and must survive until he is rescued.

Evangelion: 3.33 You Can (Not) Redo: The third installment in the retelling of Neon Genesis Evangelion. For some reason the English dub had been delayed for, I think, two years due to some accidental reveal in part 2. So, yes, I have been waiting a long time for this.

From the "Shows I never thought I'd get on DVD due to cost" department:

The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.: The Complete Series - when this show came out, and in reruns, I really enjoyed it. It's a lot of fun, and anything with Bruce Campbell in it is great. And I was thrilled when it hit DVD however many years ago now, except when I saw the price. I love watching Bruce Campbell in anything, but a hundred bucks is a bit much. So I figured I'd find it used eventually. And then kind of forgot about it. Fortunately, Wal-Mart seems to have gotten a bunch of different TV shows in, and Brisco County is one of them. 12 bucks, I can handle.

More cinema that DVD, but....

I was hugely disappointed by the Prince Charles screening of the '67 Casino Royale this Sunday just gone. In theory if nothing else it should be a great looking film and I was actually looking forward to seeing those psychedelic sets on the big screen... but the quality of the print was appalling. Scratches, dirt, rips, hisses and dropped sound. Considering MGM own all the Bond films and they've been supplying the restored (possibly even 4K?) versions of the Official ones I can only assume a slightly dickish attitude towards the two bastard films. I mean, the blu ray print looks fantastic, what was shown here was really below screening standards. It's lucky the Capaldi signing wound up being the same weekend or I'd have felt it was a wasted journey.

My wife got me the "complete" (how they can market it like this while making new movies, I don't know) Star Wars BluRay set for my birthday. I'm definitely going to watch through the Original Trilogy again soon, though I don't know if I'll ever watch the Prequels. Still, HD Vader = win in my books. Curious to see how the old effects stand up (assuming they haven't all been CGIed over...) Also curious to see if the 40 hours of extras includes the original cuts of the films before Lucas started meddling with them.

I also grabbed Beast Machines from Amazon last week, and managed to stumble upon something that we'd been looking for for ages in the "you might also like..." stuff they showed at checkout: the last volume of Gargoyles!

We've been watching the latter as time and baby permits, and damn this show is good! As we watch through it, though, what strikes me most is how little of it I must have seen when I was a kid. I don't remember any of if after the second-season premier (which I just now realize we must have watched years ago considering how long we've been looking for S2 volume 2). Also the voice acting is great, even if I'm frequently being startled by yet another familiar Star Trek voice showing up and I can't help but think of Mass Effect every time Goliath says anything.

I think these DC live action TV shows, along with Supergirl, are everything that some of the awful live action and animated movies aren't: fun, dark without making one suicidal, hopeful, optimistic, and actually are better than their comic books. The shows' creators get what makes these characters so cool in the first place. Plus there is some really good guest casting including: John Barrowman, Alex Kingston, Mark Hamill, Clancy Brown, Dean Cain, Brandon Routh, and Micheal Ironside.

Star Trek: 50th Anniversary Remastered Complete Original Series Box Set: finally. I'd gotten the first season when they released the Remastered ones on DVD, but seasons 2 and 3 never showed up around where I was living at the time. I went back to buy a new phone(Yay! Tax Refund!), and they had the whole series.

Run Lola Run on Blu-Ray.
