I lost my shit when you talked about the Ninja Turtles thing, and then you had to let me down with "Oh yeah, we're not giving that away btw."

@Cheezyspam I have approximately 1608. Luke's collection probably hovers around that and Cyrus's, from what I saw, looked comparable as well. But, it isn't the size of our dvd wangs that counts, it's how we keep them from collecting dust.
I don't know if Luke or Cyrus use a cataloging system or not, but I use the Collectorz movie software (www.collectorz.com/movie). I was able to acquire the standard edition for free about 6 months ago through some online deal. It's highly convenient and intuitive and worth the $30. For anyone with a hefty collection I'd say it's definitely worth at least the Standard Edition with as much data that you get to store for each disc and it does a pretty good job of applying default values when you first get everything in so that you don't have to manually modify too much (hardly at all unless you're anal like me). It's also how I catalog the posters I own in a separate database of the same software. They also offer a phone app to sync with and they have an online database version you can use as well, but if you don't get the Pro Edition it's something like 20 bucks a year to keep your collection cataloged online. If you're considering it they pretty much set everything up for you to want the Pro Edition for $60, because it's a lifetime subscription to keeping your catalog online to sync with your database on your machine, you get to scan the bar codes on the phone app for adding discs MUCH faster, and the Pro Edition supposedly opens up a lot more capabilities in the software that I don't get in the Standard Edition.

Fuck Heaven's Gate, any movie that kills animals on their set deserves whatever horrible outcome this movie got

Looks like I'm buying The League

I think of Adventure Time as a combination of Calvin and Hobbes, Dungeons and Dragons, and Yellow Submarine. Cyrus hit it right on the head, the storytelling is sincere and not in any way cynical. Jake and Finn are pure characters who have clear faults, but are still epitomes of true heroes. What other show on TV today is so pure of heart, and still so wildly entertaining?

Sorry, but "The Avengers" was crap. Sure, it's fun to see all these superheroes together onscreen but beyond just plain geekdom, I can't fathom why people sit there and oogle over this film. It was messy, childish, generic and just plain forgettable.

Wow, what a great show. I was wondering if you might be able to post a check-list, kind of a shopping list of the movies you included? That way, I (being pitifully poor right now) might check them off over the next few years as I get them one at a time!

Wow! what a massive sack-full of riches!
Next to Willy Wonka you really do have the best jobs in the world!

@Cyrus, Brian and Luke: You teased it earlier in the show, but you never said how many DVDs/Blus you actually own!! As a fellow DVD collector I have to know!! Also is there a DVD tracker site you use to keep up with them all? I use http://www.filmaf.com/ and I currently own 1173 titles. I'd love to browse through your collections!

Thanks guys, now I have even more reason to hate being a moneyless 18 year old. Guess I know where my summer job paychecks are going.

Yes, and I don't care what AVGN thinks. I had to endure that movie three fucking times, and each time it only reaffirmed my hatred for it more and more.

@31 - No, it really doesn't. Indy 4 had a terrible plot, a terrible script, terrible performances, and terrible CG. There was almost nothing redeemable about it.

the hate on Crystal Skull really needs to stop
here, watch this, skip to 13:00

Great show, and I do not want to seem nit-picky BUT I am very surprised, considering Brian is such a horror fan, that the Universal Monsters boxset was not mentioned (BTW I own it and it is AWESOME)

The Buster Keaton Blu-ray box set has a new release, College, that won't be released individually until 2013.

@Cyrus - I think in the case that you covered so many sets and movies, one was almost bound to slip outside the radar, so it's okay. ;) If the podcast had gone on any longer, someone would have definitely fallen asleep on mic after all, haha :D

nkWhiteStar: Dammit, knew we'd forget something.
Steve Holt!: There is no name to the song other than, 'the RV theme music'.
Jeremy: That's so bizarre an assertion I don't even know how to respond.
The other song this week:

TMNT and Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers as give aways? I want to hug each of you guys. If its more than 5 seconds, it will be 1 dollar ever additional second.

I hate it when I'm chilling to the RV theme song and then all of a sudden they interrupt it with a retarded podcast. Just kidding, RV kicks ass. What's the name of the song?

You guys seem to review the packaging of these blu ray boxes way more than the contents or plot of the movies contained inside.
The shiny box is the most important thing about a movie or TV show.

Come to think of it..... I'm surprised the LOTR Extended Edition Trilogy didn't appear here. There's a lot of pretty expensive sets shown here, but that one is prettty damm good value at €60. And as you would expect, it looks absolutely stunning. :)
@Brian - Just the fact that you were still all being funny after three hours of joyful talk and booze, where I would have turned into a blabbering idiot, shows once again the awesomeness of this great podcast. ;)

Harry Potter Ends:

The closest we have to Black Friday in Australia are the Boxing Day sales. But I was able to get some early bargains, thanks to Jb Hi-Fi's 20% off all blu ray and DVDs.
Apart from a basket of blu rays, I also picked up the Harry Potter boxset, the James Bond boxset, the Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection, and the Seinfeld DVD boxset. It was a sick and awesome feeling to have spent so much money.
