What DVD are you watching lately?

I have BBC's Persuasion on, but I can't really get into. I've heard thought that BBC's Sense & Sensibility is good. Of course I"ve watched the Ang Lee Emma Thompson version which is superb... I may get it this week to see  :P

North By Norhwest

Just saw "Smilla's Sense of Snow." At least the end was better than the end of the book. The English translation of the book is said to be more readable than the original. I enjoyed 3/4 of the book but the ending was so frustrating!! I got the distinct impression he had either written himself into a hole he couldn't get out of, or was so far past his deadline that they were threatening to sue him for his advance, so he just ended it right there.

I love old horror movies, and we watched The Bat, which had Vincent Price ( :)>>>) and Hotel Horror (which had a very young Christopher Lee!). They were both wonderful. The DVD also had a movie called The Gorilla on it, but it was terrible and we only made it 10 minutes in before we gave up.

VR, if you haven't seen the original silent Nosferatu, do so! It's really rather sweet, actually.

The accountant in DH's last job was a ringer for him. The first time I saw him I leaned over to DH and murmured, "Nosferatu!" It stuck. He heard about it and was actually proud of his nickname!

Lubi, it must have been interesting to watch North by Northwest and On the Waterfront so close together, especially if you had never seen them before.  Eva Marie Saint plays quite different characters in the two.  I guess they're quite different films altogether, but I love them both.

Hey, does it count for this thread if I'm watching movies on my DVR rather than on DVD?

it was very interesting.  I would have never even guessed it was the same person.  She played such different parts.

I watched some cheesy horror DVDs last night. Anyone seen - "Mustang Sally's Horror House" or "Mutant Vampire Zombies From the Hood"?  ;D

Mustang Sally -- plenty of bad acting and cheesy one-liners. You could even spot some of the production stuff like a microphone hanging down.

Mutant Zombies -- also full of bad acting. The transfer to DVD was really bad. At the point where the DVD chapter was supposed to advance to the next scene...well... I won't ruin it for you.

Yes, both are worth a watch if you like shitty horror.

Watched "Splinterheads" last night.  It was amusing but it tried a bit too hard to be funny, imo.  I learned a little bit about geo-caching from it though and that was pretty cool.

We watched The North Face, or Norwand in German last night. I felt like my heart was ripped out of my chest. I'm sure it was well done, but I hated it. I will never mountaineer or climb in snow/ice.
