I bought more than I planned, and I'm not even American. My Thanksgiving was last month.

I got:

Mad Men (all three seasons) - Amazon
Lost: The Compete Series - Amazon (wasn't going to get this, but the offer was still available when I got up so I changed my mind at the last second)
Planet of the apes: 40th Anniversary Collection - Amazon Canada (at $30.99, had to get it)

I wish the Twilight Zones and Deadwood would have went on sale, but I'm happy with what I ended up getting.

beyond nuts ever since the Barnes and Noble Criterion sale.
I have bought SOOOOOOOOO many dvd boxsets and blu-rays and other dvds it isn't even funny.
I mean I have probably saved over $200 easy.
just unreal how many deals I have snapped up.
I think I'm done though.
I just feel too guilty to buy anymore.
(at least until fantasia comes out Tuesday)

Surprisingly, I purchased very few things. I did get the Mad Men seasons though...

In the past few weeks, I've picked up:

Yojimbo/Sanjuro
Seven Samurai
The Vanishing (DVD)
Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection
Mad Men 1-3
Lost: The Complete Collection

On a 30% coupon from Best Buy:
Se7en
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

This is more than I've spent on Blu-ray in the past 6 months, probably. Maybe longer.

None of those were things on my wantlist, at least not seriously. Originally, I was only going to get Seven Samurai on the Criterion Sale, but then it went on longer than I expected, and I buckled and picked up Yojimbo/Sanjuro and The Vanishing too.

Star Trek was $55 on Amazon Deal of the Day. Too good a price to pass up.

Mad Men...how obvious was that? I've heard nothing but good things. I also figure that if I don't like it, I can sell them on the Amazon Marketplace for more than I paid for them.

Same thing for Lost. I figure it's probably impossible to get all six seasons in succession from Netflix on Blu-ray. At the very least, it's a free rental.

I started out just wanting to check out the deals available not intending to buy anything major but one thing led to another and as a Canadian we just don't have these kind of buys with the exception of boxing day. Picked up the following on Amazon

-Avatar collector's edition
-Oceans 11, 12, 13 box set(already own Ocean's 13 but needed the other two any ideas what to do with it?)
-Mission Impossible 1(completed the trilogy)
-The Proposition
-Dog Soldiers
-Karate Kid(original)
-Hot Tub Time Machine
-The Man With No Name Trilogy(wanted this for ages)
-The Reader

Overall good deals all around, wish I could get the in store deals however.

Cheers

All on Friday:

The Expendables
A Christmas Carol (2009)
Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory (digi book)
Batman
Batman Returns

Of all of these, the one that I am still shaking my head on (as to why I bought it) is A Christmas Carol. I bought the 3D 4 disc combo.........but I have not bought my 3D set yet. That comes December 6th.
