New additions to the media collection in November 2020

November 2020 still had a few scary movies for the collection, but other genres as well, while games made an appearance, too.

Surprisingly, the EDGE magazines arrived… as replacements… that were again damaged, plus another issue was missing.

This replacement might look okay at first, but the same wear and tear on the binder were prevalent, again showing what My Favourite Magazines thinks of their subscribers.

Another LEGO Star Wars space fighter is always a welcome addition.

As promised in the New additions to the media collection in October 2020 article, the local supermarket’s Halloween figurine campaign meant after much collecting points, I could get this cutely scary pineapple ghost for 99 Cents.

My girlfriend’s Nintendo points unlocked these coasters as nice rewards.

I bought God of War III: Remastered for just 5 EUR at our local MediaMarkt, which was the only bargain I found on Black Friday (I just went there to pick up some movies I ordered online).

One can’t have enough boardgames for cold winter days.

New action flicks I haven’t watched yet, except for Blown Away I barely remember from TV.

The title alone is worth buying this, and it seems that the movie is as entertainingly bad as it promises, especially with the German dubbing that uses all sorts of regional dialects.

I remember watching quite a few martial arts movies back in the days, so I’m looking forward to these in their uncut versions, although it’s quite confusing what titles they use in the originals (Karate Tiger, Best of the Best, No Surrender No Retreat).

I didn’t know if this should have been put in the horror section, but it’s apparently more like an adventure movie.

It’s too bad that the 3D version of this animated Disney movie is only available in Japan for a very high price, as I think lots of people would have bought it in the blink of an eye.

Amazon USA sadly doesn’t check how their BDs leave the warehouse, as this arrived in a terrible condition, although at least I got my money back and can keep this, waiting to buy it again with another order when the time is right and shipping costs are lower.

I liked the first Dragonheart, and even if these sequels might be cash-ins, they’re hopefully still entertaining fantasy flicks.

Despite the obvious silliness, bad fantasy movies can still have some awesome artwork.

Halloween was over, but this didn’t mean one should stop buying new horror movies for next year (or in between).

Candyman is one of my favorite horror movies, and even if I already bought the first UK and then Arrow Video BDs, I had to dip in for the unrated version.

The Critters movies aren’t on par with the Gremlins flicks, but they’re still entertaining creature features.

Another classic weird/trash movie collection that unfortunately arrived with some damage on the cover, but thanks to Amazon USA I got the full price back (that’s what I call customer service, even if I don’t understand it).

Now it can’t get any bigger than with this deluxe edition of all Friday the 13th movies (featured in my Halloween 2015 movie special) which also includes the real 3D version of the third one and the first HD version of the unrated cut of Jason Goes To Hell, although unfortunately there were some manufacturing problems with the discs, so I’m waiting for my replacement discs to arrive.

The first Sleepaway Camp is certainly not a very good movie, but it’s unintentionally bad/funny and has a pretty unique ending (although after having watched the sequels first, it wasn’t that surprising anymore).

I already owned this music video/movie mix, but wanted to have the soundtrack as well… even if I didn’t get the chance to watch it first… Oh well, it’s what you’d expect from musicians making movies… Could be an hour shorter or just a normal 5 minutes music video.

More thriller material, although Hackers might fit the sci-fi genre better, or maybe comedy, coming-of-age drama?

As the Amityville Trilogy BDs from Scream Factory fetch silly prices, it’s nice to have a label like NSM Records to release the second and third one (in 3D) in Germany, too.

Netflix is all well and good with streaming movies, but it doesn’t offer 3D versions, like this one.

Good old TV times with this show.

So once again, there was another month full of movies that will hopefully feature in some reviews in the near or far future, especially Halloween, who knows?
