Geek Gift Guide: Movies

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.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Complete Classic Series Collection

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.

Dark Knight Trilogy

The Dark Knight Trilogy

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.

Tarantino XX

Tarantino XX Blu-ray Collection

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.


Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection Blu-ray

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.

Harry Potter: The Complete 8 Film Collection

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.

Stan Lee

With Great Power: The Stan Lee Story

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.

Honorable Mentions:

  • Let’s see… Going down the list: SHELL YES, yes, yes, yes, pass, and eh, ok…

    The pass is for Harry Potter. I’m a huge Harry Potter fan but I’m holding out for the inevitable Super Mega Ultimate Special Collector’s OMGWTFBBQ Edition that will HOPEFULLY have extended cuts of all the films and not just the first two or three.
