Classic Looney Tunes

How long have you been watching classic Loony Tunes? My impression was that they were considered old-fashioned over 20 years ago. I got a real kick out of them.

And today more stuff from Amazon magically arrived on my desk :)

The third disc is not one that I'd typically have purchased, after having heard abysmal reviews from both pundits and friends. But as the original is one of my fave popcorn films of all time, I waited until it had dropped under $10 on Amazon then pulled the trigger.

I'm currently waiting for the price of Alien: Covenant to drop under $10, too. :)

I see your Alien Resurrection and raise you Reality Bites...

On the topic of DVDs, alas, I got nothin'--I haven't bought one in at least a couple years. We millenials ruin everything, don't we?

Goddamn millennials! :p

If you don't have something on physical media, dude, you ain't bloody got it. So many online services have been left in the wake of technological progress, leaving their customers, at best, in the position of having to download everything before the servers are shut down. At best!

And thank you for pointing out another film with a very... intense Winona. :) Haven't seen it, but I will keep my eyes open.

Girl, Interrupted. Like Reality Bites it is not an especially good movie, but Winona Ryder is luminous, as always.

Oh, when I love something so much I know I want to rewatch it at will for years and years and years, you can bet I'll buy a physical copy. I own every Futurama DVD, of course, and the first 15 seasons of The Simpsons (minus season 14--I really should get on that). The only film of my Absolute All-Time Favorites that I don't yet own is Broadcast News, though I did appreciate its temporary presence on HBO Go a few months ago and you can bet I took advantage of it.

But yes, there are definitely TV series and films I'd like to add to my permanent collection. The fact that I don't is really just a matter of finances (my disposable income goes more often to books, which I insist upon owning in hard copy). Right now it's just cheaper and more convenient for me to mooch off my parents' various streaming accounts like--you guessed it!--the lousy, blood-sucking millennial that I am.

Oh, I fell into that. Sorry, I should have realized that you'd definitely grab a hardcopy of something that you really treasured, not assumed that you streamed shows exclusively like so many of my co-workers. Some of those co-workers "owned" scads of music on a Microsoft service when it was discontinued years ago, so you'd think that they'd be more wary when it came to online video.

When choosing a destination for disposable income, books are for sure at the top of my list. Originally, I'd buy mostly anthologies to get the most value for my dollars, which ended up introducing me to many authors. More hours of my life than I could count were spent browsing around in mall bookstores on the weekends, looking for interesting novels and collections of short stories, and later in pawn shops poring over shelves of CDs and DVDs. I guess that streaming services like Prime and Netflix for video and Spotify for music are analogous in a way, in that you get to sample a variety of material.

Do you make lists of shows that you want to acquire, or just keep them in the back of your mind?

...to mooch off my parents' various streaming accounts like--you guessed it!--the lousy, blood-sucking millennial that I am.

Oh, I love that used "lousy" and "blood-sucking" together :) It's definitely possible that I'm jealous of your media arrangement, because the damned slow DSL that connects me to the internets is only marginally sufficient to deliver streamed audio, and watching glitchy video drives me crazy.

I wonder whether millennials will someday be grousing at gen z for the way they receive their entertainment, or if it's even possible for us to envision how that might work?

I think lousy, in reference to actual lice, rather than being a term as a general derision is like one of Gorky's favorites.  I also imagine she pronounces it with an 's' rather than a 'z'.

I didn't actually know Winona Ryder was in that movie.  Thanks for naming it Gorky.  I guess I enjoyed it? :confused:

I prefer going to physical places when I scavenge shop too.  The weird cd store, the pawn shop, an occasional yard garage sale, and the movie shop to name a few.  Used stuff is kind of neat, in that, now I have something in my hands that was once a part of someone else's life kind of way.  Like that copy of Ocarina of Time I had where Ben Drowned.

The latter, I think. I'll also say that one of the perks of streaming new/new-to-me TV shows, specifically, is that it's far lower stakes than buying a whole DVD set (or multiple ones) based on someone else's recommendation. For example, I was able to breeze through the entire run of Dexter--a show I never would have sought out on DVD, based only on word-of-mouth and my own fuzzy understanding of what the show was about--on Netflix, but now own the full-series box-set on DVD. Granted, that's partly because my parents bought it for me two Christmases ago--but, it's also one of my favorite shows and something I'd have wanted to own myself, anyway.

Similarly, I'd one day like to acquire Parks and Recreation on DVD, though I'm only a fan of the show in the first place because I caught the first four seasons on Netflix then watched the last three in real-time. And I'm silently cursing myself for never getting through all of 30 Rock back when it was on Netflix, because I am positive I would love it but now I'll have to take the plunge and buy the DVDs if I want access to the show (same goes for Bob's Burgers and King of the Hill, actually).

This streaming can indeed be a harsh mistress, as consumers are subject to the whims (er, licensing agreements) of the service providers, but I'd still say I'm thankful for it overall. It's like a try-it-before-you-buy-it thing, though obviously you're still paying for content so you're not exactly getting something for nothing (unless you're a mooching moocher, like myself).

Yes, the financial stakes are considerably less with a streaming service than they are when plunking down a wad of cash for a disc or box set.

It's true that the internet connection at my house is dismally sluggish, but the most significant reason I don't stream is that I watch very little television and see very few movies. Sure, chatting with friends and catching references on message boards have exposed me to details about a number of popular shows, and some of that catches my interest to the point where I might keep a couple of show titles in mind when I'm idly looking for something to watch.

Perhaps I ought to test the streaming waters by trying out one of the services for a few months, to see whether it sparks something in me. Binging something like Archer is something I could see myself doing (I have the first season on disc).

So, how much of a statistical outlier am I compared to the average person? Is there anyone else here who declines to legally stream by choice? Whoever opens the next DVD thread, please make a poll with multiple voting enabled so that we can see how the various ways of consuming shows break down by popularity here on Peel.

Ah, Archer is a great example of a show I never would have paid to own on DVD (all I knew of it for the longest time were the meme-ish references made by some PEELers of yore) but have since binged online and enjoyed immensely. I don't necessarily love it enough to own it on DVD, but if ever I need a good laugh I can pick a random episode on Netflix and not be disappointed.

If you decide to try streaming, Tachy, in addition to Netflix I'd recommend Hulu. I don't have Hulu myself, but I'm considering using *gasp* my own money to get a subscription because their catalog of shows is quite impressive.

So, how much of a statistical outlier am I compared to the average person? Is there anyone else here who declines to legally stream by choice?

Most people I know do primarily use streaming, but I think that's because of an aversion to paying for cable; I might actually be the only person among my group of friends with cable. What can I say? I love channel surfing and still get really excited when I find a movie or an episode of a TV show I have not seen in a while pop up "live," as it were--it's always a fun, pleasant surprise.

And this is waaay off topic, but the move away from cable TV subscriptions to streaming subscriptions does actually bum me out, for reasons I can't quite articulate. Something about the dual annoyance and pleasure of the commercial break, and the sense that I'm somehow "plugged in" to the rest of the world--like, if something catastrophic happened, my live TV feed would likely be interrupted and I would be made aware of it ASAP, but if I were watching Netflix I could just keep blithely going about my day none the wiser. I often have the TV on when I'm alone in my apartment, "for company," and the steady babble of cable feels more "real" to me than Netflix which often goes silent with prompts asking if I really am still watching Friends or How I Met Your Mother or whatever.

It's weird, I know, but there you have it. :hmpf:

Public broadcast is also really good now.  There's like 30 channels now, since the mandatory digital shift.

I like channel surfing sometimes too.  I don't have cable at the moment (or streaming options), but it hasn't been bad.

Thanks for reminding me on Archer.  Btw there's a version of the pilot episode where Archer is replaced by a raptor that growls a lot--highly recommend.

Two new DVDs:

Girls und Panzer TV series
Girls und Panzer der film

I'm really not into Japanese anime, but having watched a load of meme vids based on the show, I dug a bit deeper. Yes, the premise is totally ridiculous, but if you can suspend disbelief there is much to enjoy. More history references than you can wave a stick at, eccentric characters, visually realistic tanks with their unique quirks amplified for humour, Kelly's Heroes references, some hidden adult humour, and even a Monty Python reference in one of the OVAs. There is some cringe, but it's the least anime anime I've come across, and getting der film was worth it just for the totally bonkers BT-42 scene. It's definitely a guilty pleasure rather than a masterpiece, but it can be strangely addictive.

What is ridiculous about tank battles as a sport for girls? 😛

I've personally engaged in tank duels with women...duels of the arcade kind, naturally. Also, I've not watched more than several minutes of Tank Girl, but the bit I did watch looked interesting, and the Portishead soundtrack was awesome :)

The Tank Girl soundtrack was compiled by Courtney Love. It's a significant artifact in the whole grunge scene, imho.

Movie is a lot of fun, too.

Thanks for the detail. Ms. Love...is a rather polarizing person. I do have one of her albums, and also a couple of tracks from another.

Closer to the title of the thread, I have several discs on order, and if my memory is accurate, All of them have shipped as of yesterday. I love Amazon so much I swear that my wallet whimpers each time a UPS truck goes by.

And they came in! No new hot releases here. I haven't watched any of these before, but had wanted to get a couple of them for a while and was looking to rent the others...but it cost less to just buy them :)

Ah, curious to hear your thoughts on Little Miss Sunshine, when you get to it. (It’s kind of twee, but it’s well-written and the performances are sooo good.)

Also curious to hear your thoughts on Under The Skin. It has a strong message, but the message is ambiguous. I'm not sure what it was saying, but at the very least it clearly displayed basic facets of the human spirit.

(also, not for nothing, but the score is by Mica Levi, and is haunting in its own right)

Not sure which of these I'll watch this weekend. Little Miss Sunshine was highly recommended to me by a friend. The path leading to Under The Skin is convoluted, but the deliberate, precise footsteps taken by the protagonist as she walked very slowly around a room clearly implied the presence of an intelligent entity in an unfamiliar (i.e. human) body, who was exploring its available range of motion. And at first it came across as benevolent to me, then more ambivalent. A couple of days ago I read a review blurb of the movie, outlining its horrific nature. It'll be fun watching. :)

I really enjoyed both Addams Family films.  I don't mean to diminish John Astin's wonderful performances on the television series when I say this, but Gomez Addams is the role that Raul Julia was born to play.

I've never seen either of the Addams movies, and have been looking forward to them for some time. The MIB film is one that I'd intended to see in the cinema, but never quite got around to.

I saw them both in the theater, back when they came out.  I forget if it was during the first or the second one when my friends and I got scolded by the ushers for sitting on the floor of the theater instead of sitting in the seats.

Ah, youth.

When I watched Star Wars the first time, there was no buzz about the film at all, and I caught it at a matinee showing in the first week of June, 1977. And though my half-brother and I knew nothing about it, well, well over 90% of the people standing in line for tickets were about a full foot shorter than us. I was 21, and we were so concerned that it was going to me a kid's movie that we nearly bailed to catch some other random film.

And after the literally jaw-dropping opening, I was hooked for life. We snuck right back in to the same cinema and grabbed center, up-close seats for a free second viewing :)

I randomly found a DVD copy of Prospect[0], one of the best indie sci fi movies of the decade (IMHO etc) at a gas station. A bit surreal finding it there. Made me wonder what other gems I've never heard of are lurking in the $10 rack at PetroCo.

I've never heard of that film, but I do often feel compelled to look through the DVDs for sale at the grocery store, or even the dollar store.  I haven't found any gems yet, but I'll keep looking.

The basic setting (trying not to give too much away, the spoiler tag isn't working for me) is: a single father and his daughter live in a shuttle attached to a larger ship orbiting a moon with a poisonous atmosphere, far from the central planets. In order to make money to leave this hinterland, the father takes them down to the moon, to harvest a creature that only grows there.

It has a few things going for it.

It creates a believable setting, with enough detail in the margins to convince the viewer that the characters are indeed living in a realistic place and time (half-seen notes scribbled in unrecognizable script, statements that make sense on their own but give clues about the technological/social system, and so on). This for me is the best part of it - it's the first movie in some time that I've seen which creates a wholly new futuristic universe that I want to explore more. It isn't another sequel, but it is a setting that could support sequels.

The story has a few major threads commenting on ecology, economic class, and family dynamics. The characters make realistic choices based on motivation and necessity, no enforced stupidity to create drama. And, more generally, the actors are skilled, and the visuals bring a real sense of wonder.

Also, if you like the 1970s-1980s-type styling in spacecraft, this has it.

I'd rather watch actual sci-fi films from the '70s and '80s than watch contemporary films with '70s or '80s style spacecraft, but it does sound interesting.  I might have to give it a watch if I ever get the chance.

I'll keep an eye out for it in those bargain bins.

I suffered with a relatively brutal commute for many years, but one benefit was a little hole-in-the-wall pawnshop around the corner from the office where I often spent part of my lunch break looking for treasures in the DVD racks ($3 per disc). Sadly, the "bargain bin" at a local grocery store hasn't been much of a bargain for years, with used rental DVDs going for 10-12 bucks.

There are a couple of preorders in my Amazon account, for season 5 of The Expanse and season 3 of Star Trek: Discovery. The former has me completely engrossed and I plan to start on S4 tonight!. :)

I find charity shops are the best place to pick up cheap DVDs the most expensive are about two pounds but some sell three, or even five, for a pound!

I once bought Splice at a gas station.  It has necrobestialincestarapuality.  Pretty weird.

Edit: also gendertransitioninghermaphrod itism, I forgot that...it's pretty integral to the film actually.
