What DVD's are we Watching?
I just bought "Man of the House", "Kung Fu Hustle", and "XXX-State of the Union" used at BlockBuster.

Trying to decide what to watch first.

Saw an Episode of Band of Brothers on the History channel last night.. inspired me to rewatch the whole series again.. yes I did pay $70 for the whole set.. worth every penny

I bought the 10th anniversary edition of Mallrats last week...the most underrated and underappreciated Kevin Smith movie.

Every once in a while I force myself to watch Billy Jack on some late show, to "remember the times". I was living in New Mexico when this film was made, and even by the standards of the 1969-1971 timeframe this was one cheesy movie. I met the writer-director-producer-promoter-activist-ego of the film on several occasions at Diamond Jim's in Albuquerque while he was trying to get it finished. I can truly say that I never met anybody so full of himself in my life, he wore that self-righteous Native American/environmentalist/crusader theme out so completely that your eyes would glaze over while listening. He really wanted everybody to believe that the title character in the move WAS him. It never did fly far in Hollywood, Steven Segal did the act so much better and so did Chuck Norris. Don't know what ever happened to that guy, he never got any appreciation from Hollywood so he probably came back to New Mexico and made Billy Jack II through IV.

I'd agree with that. (Though I haven't seen the 10th, or Clerks X either.)

Currently from Netflix, I have Apollo 7: Shakedown Cruise, The Nightmare Before Christmas (which I never saw before, but we went to see Corpse Bride with some friends and I really liked it), and Three Smart Girls.

Speaking of DVDs, has anybody else checked out peerflix? In a nutshell, it's an organized DVD bartering system, so that you can send a movie to one person and get a credit which you can use to receive a movie from someone else. It sounded like a great idea, but I've got to say I'm not impressed so far. Maybe they just need more time to get organized? But I sent out my first two movies on Saturday. First, they have not sent me any more mailing envelopes, even though they should. Second, nobody has mailed me anything yet. Some stuff is harder to get, of course, but with 4 items on my list that I have enough credit for, all listed as "available" I'd expect some bites in 5 days.

I'm on Peerflix. They're prety good about sending new envelopes, but actually getting films can be slow. Plus, when I got the Wire, I'm pretty sure it's a Chinese bootleg.

But it's a lot cheaper than buying new ones, a monthly Netflix fee, or even renting - assuming you've already got some DVDs you're not planning to watch again.

Tommy Lee Jones playing a Fed protecting a group of cheerleaders. Probably not as good as "The Pacifier".

Kung Fu Hustle was good.
