I bought a beautiful blu-ray set on Amazon on Prime day. It has 31 discs and tons of special features. Here it is.
There are extended editions of the first two movies. They air on Freeform whenever they do marathons and there are blu-ray releases. It’s just the cut scenes added back in. 3-8 don’t have these editions though.
From my experiences, Amazon.co.jp usually has the best prices, and works like Amazon.com (U.S. version), so I would recommend that!
CDJapan.co.jp is also a nice site with some free membership benefits, like points for discounts, and whatnot, but can tread towards a bit more pricy.
For high quality, you would like to purchase either the Blu-Ray version or the 4K Blu-Ray HDR version (but for the latter, you would need a Blu-Ray player that can play that type of disc). The 4K version is only available on the collector's edition, which can go up to $100 USD (link here!). There is an Amazon exclusive version too, but that would cost a lot more than $100USD if you're down for that haha
And for the soundtrack, there's a U.S. equivalent version that has both the Japanese and English songs! It's only missing one track, but it's the movie edit of Nandemonaiya. Link to the soundtrack here!
Hopefully this helps you out!
It's still steep, but the collector's edition costs ~$93.99 shipped to the west coast. $130 is the version with Amazon bonuses that you don't seem to be interested in.
Thanks! The Fog, Prince of Darkness, Escape From New York & They Live i got from Amazon France. Comes in a 4 pack, cost me around $93, so $23.25 a steelbook. Discs labels are in french and the Blu-rays are region B, but the movies look great in 4k! Steelbooks are really nice, especially The Fog. Christine is still available on Best Buy's website for $24. Here's the links if you're interested:

As far as I know, the Hogwarts Collection includes all of the movies in their extended/ultimate edition formats. The first two movies came as extended editions, then the next four as ultimate editions, and the final two as theatrical releases plus extra content.
The Hogwarts collection is 31 discs of all the movies and all the bonus content that came with all of them, as far as I'm aware. It'd make an awesome gift!

Definitely watch the Producer's Cut. The blu-ray is currently on sale on Amazon for 6 bucks!
VERY highly recommended over the theatrical release. The score alone makes the movie worth it.
It's still available on Amazon by Mondo Vision. i know it's an unpopular opinion but i personally like the smaller blu ray release more than the oversized limited edition.
If you mean the English one; Amazon still has it. [link]
related question- is the producer's cut the same length as the original theatrical release? Tat is what I am finding but then this amazon link shows almost 2 hours.
This is one of the few collections that have the extended versions of Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets included
Just an FYI for those wondering the steelbooks have the normal US/UK titles for the film on the covers and the spines as the steelbooks are the exact same ones that were sold in the UK. Alternate titles are only on the j-cards, the bonus plastic outer box holding them all, and the discs.
Man I gotchu Box set here you go , RightStuff doesn't have it anymore sadly, but its cheaper in the 1st link
Not with that attitude.....but just cuz its you try this
I got this set for christmas last year and it is just...truly magical. Not 4k, but eh, who needs it?
I doubt Criterion will do it since the Mondo Vision blu-ray (readily available throughout North America) is already quite excellent: [link]
As for the film at hand, although OP might enjoy it (depending on how much you can stomach some disturbing body horror), I’d argue that it isn’t really a possession movie, despite the title. The film doesn’t have any of trope I’d expect to find in a possession movie, especially that everyone retains free will throughout the film. I can’t say much more without spoilers, but I think “possession” in that film would be interpreted more in the way I “possess” my significant other.
Link for anyone who's looking for it.
Do note that there are two versions released through Amazon: the Collector's Edition for near ￥100,000, and an Amazon exclusive version, near ￥200,000.
I waited a couple years for the Hogwarts Collection to go on sale. It has the same 31 discs as the Wizard's Collection without the huge (though admittedly cool) box. It does still use up a bit of space on the shelf, but it's worth it! Here's an amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/Harry-Potter-Hogwarts-Collection-Blu-ray/dp/B00HETD0KC/ref=sr_1_1?crid=21MBMI9HIXSFN
The One with All the Friends DVDS on Amazon
Yeah it's not available on any streaming platforms or even 123movies or whatever so unfortunately you'll have to buy one of these $40 or $70 special edition blu-rays since evry other edition on amazon isn't compatible in the US. It is definitely worth the buy though. I'd PM you an mp4 if I had one
It was pretty much the version of Halloween 6 that was made before the studio took over control and greatly fucked with it. It was finally found and beautifully restored for the Scream Factory box set. Lionsgate eventually released the Producer's Cut on its own, you can get it on Amazon for $6.
I just bought this DVD box set (not the Blu-ray) from Amazon last summer and it had the uncut episodes. Although I most certainly did not pay that much for it...
I currently own the 'Ultimate Edition' Blu Rays, each one has 2-4 discs and a bunch of extras. It's not a collection, each movie is separate and last I checked they're out of print. The Hogwarts Collection ([link]) is probably the best one still on the market; any other boxset for the most part is out of print. I'm working on the 4K editions now.
Based on what you've expressed interest in:
Japanese Collector's Edition (~$92.57 shipped to California)
US Standard Edition ($34.98, will probably decrease before release)
They do have them up for pre-order, but the collector's edition is currently sold out. Note that the release date is August 4th instead of July 26th.
Your Name Collector's Edition
They do have the regular special edition up for pre-order, however.
Your Name Special Edition
I bought the collector's (non Amazon special) edition but the picture doesn't show the colorful looking art you have. Is that only for the most expensive version on Amazon because that page seems to have it.
It's my understanding that the full episodes were never released on Blu-Ray, so if you choose that format, you'll be getting the edited-for-TV version. This set is the same set I own. They're DVDs, so not the best image quality, but they are the full, uncut episodes, plus commentaries and whatnot.
I know. I was going to buy it in Blu-ray, but it turns out there are cut scenes. The DVD collection is complete: [link]
If you have the funds, or can find a good deal, I'd highly recommend the Hogwarts Collection. The special features alone are worth the price of admission.
> Add to this my love for crime and drugs and this show falls in line with movies like Goodfellas, Blow, and Casino where it is like watching a Wikipedia movie with music. ... Ill take any recommendations on crime and drug documentaries/movies.
If you haven't seen it already, this whole series is great.
Been meaning to check Narcos out, it looks pretty killer.
It's a long shot but you can try your local library.
There's a $60 used box set on Amazon, but I figure if they don't make it available in your country to buy, it's fair game for piracy.
Amazon had this set for really cheap. I think my husband got it for $80 (he says $50). It's well worth it.
It's going to kill Q1 2015 too when thousands of people realize at once that for the price of the Friends box set, you can get a year of netflix and then some.
>Thanks for all the info. My job asked me to consider getting a conceal and carry. I know very little about guns and this has been very helpful.
I'm glad be be able to help. Local laws vary, so if you'd like more information, check out /r/guns. There are plenty of forums out there as well, so it shouldn't be too difficult to join a concealed carry forum or a forum specializing in your physical area to get more helpful info.
If considering concealed carry, you should budget for a reliable semiauto pistol and 2-3 factory magazines, a good holster (both of which will depend on your physical size, how comfortable you are with different types of safeties, and other factors), and a training class.
Magpul has a decent DVD set that covers defensive shooting as well as different types of pistols and equipment (holsters, rail mounted flashlights, and similar items)...if you get overwhelmed by all the options discussed online, then those DVDs are probably a good place to start:
Above all, I think situational awareness and staying out of potentially dangerous situations is more important than anything. The best defensive firearm is the one that you never have to use.
>Do you go shooting often?
Once every 30-60 days. I'd go more often if my schedule permitted. For someone who carries for defensive purposes but is otherwise not a "gun nut", going at least every 6 months is probably advisable just to get practice and maintain skill level.
Apropos of the link, just buy the video. Not as good as attending a class, but far better than trying to figure all this out by trial and error.
The carbine videos are also quite good. The precision rifle one, not so much.
If you're in the mood to watch something bad ass enough to inspire a name like that, try The Yakuza Papers - Battles Without Honor & Humanity.
