cheapo dvd alert
Lasy night my wife and I got a rare evening out. We had intended to go see Miyazaki's Spirited Away, but I blew my City Knowledge roll and we mistakenly went to the wrong theater, so we watched the new Harry Potter flick (CNN review) instead. After, we hit a Marsh supermarket to pick up a birthday card and flowers for our friend Onye (whose celebration we went on to attend), and lo and behold, they had a rack of cheapo DVDs for the low, low price of three bucks eachs. Since I find that sort of thing irresistable, I picked up a couple: The Legend of the Eight Samurai, with Sonny Chiba, Etsuko "Sue" Shiomi and Hiroyuki "Henry" Sanada, and '50s teen exploitation flick Hot Rod Girl, starring Lori Nelson, Frank Gorshin, and the square-jawed Chuck Conners as (what else?) a cop.
