Quantum of Solace - I'd bought it used a few years back and never watched it. I went to put it in the DVD player and the disc was defective, so I got a new copy. Crossing my fingers this time.

Hopefully it's not a defective batch. The Region 4 One disc edition Serenity DVDs were like that. I had one that skipped and got stuck at the layer transition - about 1 hour in, so I exchanged it twice only to find that the exchanged ones had the very same defect.

At last, I saw Amazon had what was billed as a REMASTERED Warner Archive release of Toward the Unkown. I dutifully paid my 14.99 and had it in my hot little hands three days later. I sure don't know what they mean by remastered, because it suffers from the same dirt, grain, and color shifts during scene changes that my "independent" bootleg DVD has. Oh, well, at least the case has some cover art.

One of those 4 films on one DVD:
A Christmas Carol '38 version-I'm probably one of the few who really enjoys this one.
Boys Town
Christmas In Connecticut-Love the film plus the included short Star in the Night.
The Singing Nun- Well, 3 out of 4 ain't bad. ;-)
The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Blu-ray) Amazon is killing me financially but impossible to resist. :)

My girlfriend got me Dogs in Space, which is the absolute last film I would have expected someone to make a Blu-ray. Sadly, although the back says it will play in regions a, b, and c, neither my BR player or my PS3 will allow it.
