Gift Shopping: DVDs
Amazon keeps sending out special announcements about all sorts of sales they are running. The discounting is selective, but heavy.
The latest is a special on DVDs for $7.97. I scanned the sale list (mostly blah), but there were a handful of winners amongst the junk:
A terrific movie, great performances -- but be aware this is on sale because of the new (and more expensive) 10th Anniversary Edition. Scorcese fans may recall the same thing happened with Goodfellas (Two-Disc Special Edition).
This is a very under-rated Sci-Fi flick that improves with each viewing. Great special effects, interesting story, good action sequences. The Unrated Director's Cut has more violence and extended fight scenes.
• The Bourne series:
I read the Bourne books in high school and college as my junk beach books -- but the story holds up well, the actions sequences are great, and Matt Damonis surprisingly menacing as the title character.
Spike Jonze does a great job turning this bizarre screenplay by Charlie Kaufman, into a surreal and brilliant piece of film making. Could be the best film of 1999.
Happy shopping !

Most of the amazon sales are junk. I've been buying for less using the Google Checkout deals. The $20 off $50 unlimited coupons at buy.com are nice; buy.com has most of the books, videos, electronics, etc. as amazon.com. Just not many toys. jr.com had to stop their $10 off $30 google checkout deal because they were getting swamped with orders.
