    Make sure you check that one for laser rot, as I believe that was a Columbia/Tri-Star disc.

    I had forgotten all about the Columbia Curse! And after checking the newsgroups out, it seems that HEAVY METAL is on many "rotter" lists! My money has already been sent too! I'm not feeling good about this one now....:nervous:

    Twasn't me

    But damn, you should never waffle on import music LDs, they're rare as hell.
    And Suspiria is a must-own LD for any fan. The soundtrack is quite different than the DVD, and you should listen to both to see which one you prefer. It's not a bad looking LD, either.

    UPDATE: Ok....so I emailed the seller about the HEAVY METAL LD and he checks it out and emails me back. Sure enough....ROTTED! At least the seller was honest about it. I offered to still buy the movie book off him if he agreed to also give a refund for the adjusted shipping. He did and the movie book is on the way.......so it ended-up pretty good actually......

    Deadful Melody (Brigitte Lin and Yuen Biao)
    Executioners (Michelle Yeoh, Maggie Cheung, and Anita Mui)
    Zu: Warriors From Magic Mountain

    Two unopened X-Files discs: "The Blessing Way/Paper Clip" and "Squeeze/Tooms"

    Because I don't feel like shelling out for the entire season boxsets just to get to the handful of episodes that I really want.

    BTW, it's weird paying $5.00 for a still-sealed disc and getting it and noticing the original sale sticker on the plastic for $29.98....

    I have several X-Files LDs, 'cause I don't really like the series enough to buy box sets. I like single "monster" episodes, could care less about alien visitors or government conspiracies.

    I own that Squeeze/Tooms disc (which is a perfect two-part story), as well as Anasazi/Humbug (the Jim Rose circus freaks episode), Conduit/Ice (The Thing-inspired episode), Irresistable/Die Hand Die Verletzt, Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose/War of the Coprophages, and Herrenvolk/Home (possibly the most infamous X-Files episode

    Yep, you can get 'em cheap, and if you're just a casual X-Files fan, it's definitely the way to go.

    Those are good scores. I don't know if that Savini doc will ever make it to DVD, due to the films shown. Most of them are now owned by different companies.

    And the TCM disc is a piece of work. Hopefully the cover is in good condition. I got one factory sealed a couple of years ago.

    Well it turns out the TCM LD is from another company called MPI Home Video, and if I had known someone else issued a LD I would have double checked.

    The cover says, "All-New Restored Version - Uncut & Unedited" so I'll have to check it out maybe against the other LD or the DVD and see.

    But that'll teach me, from now on I'll always ask for specific details on any LD/DVD/Etc..

    Being an ultra newbie to LD's, I don't have any great purchases. However, I did pick up Eyes Without A Face. I love this movie, and I can't find it on dvd.
