DVD debacle


It’s funny, all this hoo-ha over the Warner Blu-ray announcement, and what did I end up doing yesterday? I went out during my lunch break and bought some standard definition DVDs. In my defence, they were practically giving them away, with the bulk of them £3.99 and several included in a “Buy two, get a third free” deal. I ended up with Y Tu Mamá También, Little Children, Munich and Factory Girl, with these titles chosen for a combination of reasons, ranging from “I’ve wanted to see this but never had the opportunity” to “People said this one was good” to “I can’t think of another title to get, so I’ll pick one at random.” Care to guess which was which?

Little Children was sadly overlooked by general audiences upon its release; a very satisfying film. Not quite as good as Todd Field's beautiful "In the Bedroom" (quite possibly my favourite film), but certainly on a similar level.

I hated Munich when I first saw it, but having rewatched the film on DVD, I enjoyed it a lot more. Fairly atypical Spielberg (less schmaltz, more balls), but it still has the traditional issues of family life and related heartaches.
