Depends on how much you have to pay for each, and how much money you have to spend.
Cult films and hit foreign films should be relatively easy to (later) sell on eBay or wherever, and maybe even make a small profit. So I would buy what I liked - so if you can’t sell it, you are not upset about the fact. People can always probably find a copy of Titanic or the big blockbusters, but it might be more fun/challenging to be able to buy Harald and Maude, or Blechtrommel, or Das Boot or some other films at a discount.
Knowing me, I would spend far too much getting all of the cult/foreign films and just have them - selling them if I see I can get the right price, but keeping them if I don’t.
There’s a really obscure movie out there about a war amongst the stars, where a young farmboy dreams of leaving his mundane existence to go out into space and become a hero, where he encounters an evil regime that is ruling the galaxy with an iron fist.
I held off buying a DVD player for a long time. Then they released The Fellowship of the Ring and the first season of* Buffy the Vampire Slayer* in the same week, and I felt compelled to buy the player and the discs.
I held off buying a Blue-Ray player for a long time. Then they released the extended edition of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Kenneth Branagh version of Hamlet, and I felt compelled to buy the player and the discs.
I probably will purchase Rec. Quarantine’s not high on my list though, and I dislike Paranormal Activity a lot. Poltergeist on the other hand…
Yeah, probably gonna take that. One of my staff members loves it though, and we only have the one copy…
Already own Eternal Sunshine hahaha soooo good.
The Artist isn’t out yet btw, I’m buying that elsewhere it seems.
Altogether, a solid list though. I already had plans of buying Harold and Maude, Citizen Kane, Freaks, Fargo and the Truman Show.
I’m more interested in picking up cult flicks and foreign movies that I’d have trouble finding elsewhere. Going to get Repo! The Genetic Opera, Pink Floyd the Wall, Killer Klowns from Outer Space, Little Shop of Horrors, Bottle Rocket, and Pi for sure. Then I’ll raid the horror section at the end for mindless crap at the end when everything is a dollar.
