The Christmas Take: Part Duece

Circling the Christmas Tree like a hawk scouting a delectable mouse, Univarn swooped down in attack formation. Sister at his side, parents in the rear, he fired a handful of particle wrapping ray missiles. With precise movements and careful calculations he released his talons and scooped up an assortment of cinematic awesomeness. Don't believe me? See for yourself:

This Year's Movie Take
Kurosawa Film
Seven Samurai Criterion 3-Disc Deluxe Edition (+1 change of underwear - it was needed)
High and Low
Red Beard (aka Akahige)
The Bad Sleep Well

General Films
West Side Story
Paths of Glory
The Great Dictator
Charade
The Seventh Seal

No Book this year, got money to buy them instead.

What's Ahead on LiE?
Review
I Love You Phillip Morris
The Fighter*
True Grit*
The King's Speech
...among others? (you never know)

Posts
LiE Awards (These won't be done the same way as last year's was - i.e. all in one day, they will be spread out over a couple of weeks beginning in January)
The usual Uni Rants :)

Also, keep an eye out for some very special announcements and perhaps even contests over the next month!

*Will most likely be seeing only one or the other over the weekend.

I got mostly books and gift cards, as well as chocolate (my weakness). Also got a copy of Letters from Iwo Jima from my bro. All in all, it was a good haul.

Lots of goodness coming up on LiE! Looking forward to read these posts. Merry Christmas Ryan :)

Merry Christmas, Ryan.
What does the * near 'The Fighter' and 'True Grit' mean?

Univarn said...

@MovieNut14 Nice, glad you got what you wanted. I think most any sweet is my weakness (minus anything with nuts in them - I prefer to keep some things separate :P)

@Castor You too, and thanks!

@Lesya The * means that I may not be seeing both soon so how quickly I get those posts up is up in the air.

Lovely haul. I myself had a decent one and plan on doing a post on it sometime early next week. I bought that Seven Samurai Box yesterday from my go-to used DVD place who have a 40% off everything boxing day sale so I paid like 20 bucks for it and like 30 for the Yojumbo/Sanjuro box. It was a Merry Christmas indeed.

Keep up the good work sir.
