Did anyone get any new (classic) DVDs for Xmas? I only got a couple, but they're two good ones. I got a recent discovery that I love, Hobson's Choice, a 1954 David Lean film starring Charles Laughton. I also got Our Town, which is in the public domain, but I was hoping for a nice, clean transfer. This one has supposedly been digitally remastered from original negatives. I've only seen Our Town once, and that was online on my laptop screen, so I'm looking forward to seeing it again. I found it very moving the first time.
I didn't get any new movies this year at all. I did buy my wife the BBC comedy called Keeping Up Appearances. It's one of her favorite comedies ever. She bought me the BBC comedy Good Neighbors as it's my favorite Briitish comedy. And that's really the only things we got each other this year. At our age we just don't need anything anymore and being on a fixed income makes us more conscious of our spending habits. Besides you can watch almost any movie ever made online if you know where to look. :)
