DVD collection update:

I did some damage this month and the only explanation I have for myself is that, hey, January was my first month of grad school, life changes are stressful, who doesn’t like a bit of DVD therapy? My shelves are aching a little bit more with the weight of this month’s acquisitions. But everything I got was bargain-priced. Here’s the list, in video form:

  1. Hey, that was a fun one! Loved the blooper reel, and cool that you picked up ‘White Heat’…one of my favorite Cagney films (and a good handful of bonus features on that DVD, too). And where is this magical supermarket that sells $1.99 movies? Are they new or used? Either way…what great deals!

    1. I like it too. It allows me to talk a little bit more about the DVDs without making the post look super-long. And I get to show off the pretty covers! haha

      Glad you enjoyed it, thanks for the feedback :)
