I should just stop going to the used video store...

Because I always leave with more than I planned to.

I picked up four movies that were actually on my list:
Blood and Chocolate
Never Cry Werewolf
Casablanca
The Fugitive

And then two that weren't:
Blade Runner (which, let's face it, should have been on the list, and this one includes all three, no, wait, four versions: the original theatrical version, the international version, the Director's Cut, and the Definitive Version)
True Romance

I did not even know that True Romance was a thing until I saw it in the $7 bin. But, dude, that cast: Christian Slater (shut up), Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, Val Kilmer, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, and Christopher Walken. Directed by Tony Scott with a screenplay by Tarantino (who is admittedly not usually my thing, but, uh. DAT CAST). So. Anyway.

And, yes, before you ask, Blood and Chocolate and Never Cry Werewolf go on my Werewolf Shelf. Of course I have a Werewolf Shelf. You had to ask? To be fair, there are a couple of vampire and zombie sorta things there too, but it's mostly lycanthropes. You'd be surprised how many werewolf movies there are out there once you start looking for them...

Fortunately, they're having a special where if you buy a used DVD, you get a second one for half price. So all six of those movies cost me $32. Two of them were actually new and not used, and one was a bluray. So I'm not super distressed about the purchase, but it was rather more than I planned on.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to rearrange my DVD tower so that the new SF will actually fit on the shelves.

ETA: Argh argh argh. Casablanca was supposed to be a two-disc set, and only disc 2 is in the case. This was a new DVD in the half-price clearance bin, so, uh. I don't know if they had any others. I guess I'll take it back tomorrow and find out.
