New additions to the media collection in October 2018

October 2018 didn’t offer as many purchases as the months before, but there were still some great movies to put on the shelves.

It seems to have become something of a habit that every second month is missing the Retrogamer and Games TM magazines, with only the German LEGO magazine being on time. But then again with the delays (or no magazines at all, as with the Retrogamer that is constantly lost for whatever reason), who knows if we won’t have the same picture next time? It would also be quite nice to have fewer Star Wars ships making another appearance with just another pilot…

The Bill and Ted movies are always great fun, and while I own the first one as a US import, the second one passed me by and as the double feature has become too expensive, this lovely German media book should do nicely.

I’m not quite sure if one has to read all the background info of a movie that is as silly as it can be, but seeing the weird German translation of “dude” as “Hoschi” I can’t seem to remember having heard anyone speaking back in the days already puts a smile on my face, as watching the sequel will do.

I enjoyed the first Tadeo Jones movie (as I did with the short film shown at the Fantasy Film Festival a long time ago), so hopefully this one will be just as much fun. However, it’s such a shame that the 3D version is only available in Spain without subtitles. Maybe I’ll buy it sometime in the future when it’s cheap and make both versions run side by side.

Something completely different, and even if I’m not a big fan of Russel Crowe, I remember having watched and quite liked this sci-fi thriller that might be outdated with its special effects, but should still be entertaining enough.

With Christmas time coming soon, this might be a very good candidate for a movie special, who knows…

As I already bought a bunch of 3D dance movies in August 2018, I still had to get these two 2D ones for completion’s sake.

Sometimes it’s good not to listen to critics’ or people in general’s opinions, as this sequel is much more enjoyable than the original Stephen King adaptation during which I almost fell asleep a couple of times. Yes, it has ridiculous dialogues and bad acting with some not so great special effects, but it’s gory and simply a lot of fun to watch. Hopefully it will still receive a BD update, as the way of Warner selling DVD-Rs on demand isn’t very customer-friendly. Still, the Australian import was worth the less-than-10 Euros price.

There aren’t many animes that keep my interest for too long or at all, but Mushishi is one of them. Melancholic and soothing at the same time with wonderful music, I had to get this rather cheap US edition to experience it again after being magically drawn to it during my university days.
