  1. Movie related books: The Art of John Alvin and The Art of Robert McGinnis. Illustrators and Poster artists extraordinaire. Blue ray versions of Kill Bill 1/2, and About Time. Twin Peaks Blu is late in arriving.

  2. That’s a lovely selection Keith! 😀 I didn’t get any movies this year but I did get seasons 1 and 2 of House of Cards on DVD! Plus my partner got a huge boxed set of silver screen era films which I may be co-opting.

    • Ahh House of Cards. I’m not big on TV but that is one show that has really intrigued me. I really want to give it a shot. And a silver screen era box set? I’m drooling! 🙂

  3. I got a 4 pack of Marilyn Monroe’s films: Some Like It Hot (which I’ve seen before and loved), The Seven Year Itch, How to Marry a Millionaire and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I’m not a big Marilyn fan, but I think they’ll be fun to watch.

  4. Great gems you got there, but they are already in my collection though I would rather like the Criterion version for Au Revoir. My gift this Christmas was a film-making workshop and I got to see a lot of fantastic short films there. 🙂

    • I’m automatically jealous of your collection. Prior to get these I had already seen three if them. I’ve already rewatched them and I love them even more! Criterion is the best!

  5. Wow, you got some great movies! I got Rush, The Fault in Our Stars, and one other movie I can’t think of now! I love gifting movies too – I gave The Grand Budapest Hotel to one of my good friends. 🙂

      • A lot of people like to say it’s just another YA-adaptation, but I was blown away by the performances. I think it’s atypical of that genre, even with some similarities. I’d love to hear what you think of it after you see it!
