horror movie purchases of the week
My lovely wife and I celebrated payday by indulging ourselves in a little DVD buying. My wife picked up copies of The Matrix Reloaded and the classic Disney fick Mary Poppins (you gotta love Dick Van Dyke playing a Cockney).
Our four-year-old watched the entertaining Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island on Cartoon Network over the weekend, and I'd promised to buy it for her. (It's pretty cool -- spooky, but not too scary for tots, and the kicker in this flick is that, for once, the monsters the Scooby Gang encounters are real.) So later yesterday evening we trotted out and picked up a copy of that flick, plus a DVD of the first five original Scooby-Doo episodes for a mere ten bucks. Along the way, I noticed that Best Buy had DVDs of the fine Alex Proyas science fiction film Dark City and the fanboy horror classic from Stephen King and George Romero Creepshow for a mere six bucks each, so I grabbed them as well.
