Greetings holiday Gremlins! The GreenCine team is at your service to show you the best/quirkiest gifts out there for you/your cinephile friends and family this season. We've included a smorgasbord of goodies: books, DVDs, comics, games, fantasy-dream-list items (see: D-Box seats), and much much more. If we're missing anything, we'd love to read your recommendations in the comments section below (even though our wish-and-gift-buying list is already dangerously long).
Part 1: Special Edition DVDs, Compilations, Companion Books
Part 2: Staff Favorite Books and DVDs 2009
Part 3: Games, Gadgets and Oddities
Of course, #1 on our list for non-GreenCine members is GreenCine Gift Certificates! Good for 2 to up to 12 months at the 3-DVDs out at a time plan. Treat your friends to our eclectic selection and welcome them to our film-loving family.
Part 1: DVD re-releases, Compilations, and Companion Books
With the rise in the popularity of Blu-Ray in 2009, even those with regular DVD players enjoyed a bounty of classic movies reissued this year. Some of our favorites include:
Gone with the Wind (70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition)
Get Smart - The Complete Series Gift Set
North by Northwest (50th Anniversary Edition)
The Wizard of Oz (70th Anniversary Two-Disc Special Edition)
While a bit pricey, we love the new Criterion set, AK 100: 25 Films of Akira Kurosawa (Criterion Collection), which we've assigned various friends of ours to review over at GreenCine Daily. Also hefty, but invaluable to any aspiring auteur is the Janus Films set Essential Art House - 50 Years of Janus Films.
