I’m the guy that always gets people movies for Christmas. I don’t really do it on purpose, it just happens. This year there are a ton of cool DVDs and Blu-rays for the movie buffs on your list, whether they like silly cartoons or classic cinema. Here are a few choices me and the rest of the team put together.
If you haven’t pulled the trigger on any classic TMNT DVDs over the past decade or so they’ve been released, or you’re just a Turtle completist, this complete series set would be the perfect gift. 23 discs housed in a replica Party Wagon? I’ll take ten.
Chances are you already own the first two movies in Christopher Nolan’s epic Batman trilogy, but this box set is only a few dollars more than the Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray, and comes with some cool extras. If you know a geek who doesn’t have these movies yet, this would make a great gift.
8 movies, 10 discs, 5 hours of exclusive bonus features, and some awesome box art. This Tarantino collection is a bit pricey but it is a must-have for movie geeks. Includes True Romance, which Tarantino wrote and I have yet to see.
At over $200, this is a super pricey gift for a movie fan, but the set includes 15 of Alfred Hitchcock’s films and 15 hours of bonus features. If this was cheaper I would get it for myself, because I have seen a shockingly low number of Hitchcock movies, and I think I need to fix that.
There are pricier Harry Potter box sets out there, but this one is a steal at just over $60 considering the quality of all these films. I got into Harry Potter very late, and I know a lot of people who would love these movies but have never given them a chance. This set is perfect for folks like that.
A documentary about Stan Lee? Yes please. This is a couple years old now, but it has good reviews and Stan Lee is awesome and I know tons of geeks would appreciate this one. Plus, it’s cheap.
- Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn – The consensus seems to be ‘surprisingly good’, and it may be the closest thing we get to a Halo movie in a long time.
- Adventure Time: Complete First Season
- ParaNorman – Nothing like a Halloween movie for Christmas!
