I have a few of these, actually never even taken the wrapper off.

They are kind of those films you need to be in the right mood for, I guess...but some of them I have had for a year or more, and I m beginning to wonder what the right mood is...

The White Ribbon
Game Of Thrones season 1 (TV I know, but still in it's damn wrapper).
I Saw The Devil
Puss In Boots (Shrek Spinoff)
Fair Game (Sean Penn)
The Resident (Hilary Swank).


All of them literally still in their wrapper, and for some reason I just cannot work up any enthusiasm to watch them.

To be fair, I work long hours and don't really have a great deal of spare time, so I tend to use the time to watch films I really want to watch.

I guess I should either sell them on or give them to friends, really.

I have so many dvds still with the wrapper on. I'm looking at a pile of about 6 which I brought just in the last two weeks.

Magnolia. I know I'll enjoy it. I've loved the Director's previous stuff, it's just finding the time and inclination to sit down and actually watch the thing.

I would definitely find time to open The Big Lebowski and Inglorious Basterds. The Big Lebowski is a wild ride and probably one of the Coens' funniest films - effortlessly funny - and one of Jeff Bridges' most iconic screen roles. And Inglorious Basterds is a riot. Plus it's worth it alone for the supremely talented Christoph Waltz who's just won his second and well deserved Tarantino-generated Oscar. I recommend both very highly.

Inglorious Basterds can wait, it's too long. If it had been faster I'd have enjoyed it more, but with two (possibly even 3) subtitled conversations lasting 20 mins each, I got bored. I know people like QT's dialogue, but I prefer his set pieces, and there weren't enough of them in IB to pull me through...

James Bond DVD Tin set. Never ever took any of the DVDs out of the shrink wrap, have since bought the BluRay Box Set which cost a lot less.

Mama Mia I've had for years, never got around to watching it for some reason!

From Christmas I still have The Hunger Games, but I'll watch that soon enough

I have a few still wrapped:-

Tremors trilogy (cardboard sleeve) - Bought this a few years ago for 4 from Matalan. I will definitely get round to watching them. I've only seen the first film before, and it's very good.

Buck Rogers In The 25th Century (Season 1, Episodes 1 to 12, cardboard sleeve) - Also bought from Matalan a few years ago, also for 4. Will probably give it a go soon.

Dr Jeckyl and Sister Hyde - Bought this from Morrisons for 2, years ago.


I have loads that I just haven't gotten round to watching yet, including:-

Memento
Magnolia
Yojimbo
Lonesome Dove
Starsky and Hutch seasons 3 and 4
Rockford Files season 5
Columbo seasons 6 and 7
Kung Fu season 2
Harry's Game
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Red Cliff
Tender Mercies
A Prophet
Mulholland Drive
A Chinese Ghost Story 2
Jeremiah Johnson
Ride the High Country
Red River
Callan (The Colour Years)

The too long thing is partly my issue with not watching yet as my kids are at that stage where they go to bed around 21:30 of an evening which makes running times to be the judge of what I watch these days as it just gets too late so just end up not bothering at all.
