Just a quick update on the Thank you Megan Fox post from a few weeks ago. Realistically I was never going to stop buying movies, so while I guess you could say I've fallen off the wagon, I have done much better in what I am trying to achieve, in the following ways :
1. I haven't bought any blu ray upgrades of films I already have.
2. I've only bought dvds of titles I can't see through other channels.
3. I've been strict with myself in only buying titles I know I want, as in no impulse purchases.
As someone with little to no willpower, especially when it comes to my buying habits, this is something of a victory for me. The major focus of my film buying has been my first love, Hong Kong cinema. I'm currently trying to pick up the HK films that any self respecting fan should own but that I don't, either because I've never bought them or that I've had but no longer do for whatever reason, this came from the realisation that Wong Jing's God of Gamblers was missing from my shelves. I've had it on VHS,VCD and DVD but don't have it anymore, and what HK film library is complete without it?
So this led me to other titles I'm missing, I have a largeish order in with Yesasia but many titles I'm missing are OOP, so in the next few weeks I'm going to compile a wants list for anything I can't find. This back to basics approach to film shopping has already paid off, one of titles I bought is Johnny Mak's Long Arm of the Law, and it's easily one of the best films I've seen all year.
