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 !
