Oldies.com DVD haul #2

I am not really buying Blu Rays as yet as while I do have a player, I cannot get the sound to come out through the sound bar so I can either have the picture and poor sound or a bit worse picture and much better sound. If I am not going for picture quality I don’t need to bother with them.

These titles had been on my “to buy” list for a while and I was going to hold off from buying them until I heard that Silva and Gold did a podcast on Emperor of the North (http://silvaandgold.com/archives/881) so that made up my mind to buy it.

Emperor of the North

I remember seeing this film mentioned on the Trailers from Hell (http://trailersfromhell.com/emperor-north-pole/#.VE9KPSKUdOg) website and thought it look interesting, it had not been available for quite a while and is still not that well known. There was a video of Ernest Borgnine talking about how it took 36 days to film the fight scene on top of the train with Lee Marvin

which gave me more of a reason to see it.

Dark of the Sun

I saw the cover for this and wanted to buy it before I knew what the movie was about. The Cult of Muscle also did an episode on it (http://cultofmuscle.libsyn.com/episode-25-genderblind-utopia) and I wanted to see it even more then.

The Doberman Gang/Daring Dobermans

I bought this one as I thought it was cute. I have also watched Doggie Woggiez, Poochie Woochiez

D.A.R.Y.L

I remember watching this one in the 80s and wanted to see it although not online.

Explorers

Another one I remember watching on VHS back in the 80s, most likely at someone else’s house as we did not own a VHS played until 1988.

The Music Lovers

I had enjoyed Lisztomania and wanted to see another movie based on a musician by Ken Russell. I still have not seen Tommy.

Altered States

Trying to get into Ken Russell more and this was only $5. I will get the Devils later.
