Your Labor Day to Christmas Probable Purchases ...

Others have already commented that the buying period before us (Labor Day to Fall) is going to be a good but expensive period for many of us.

I decided to list my probable purchases. After making the list it certainly more interested in titles than last year at this same time. Or maybe it just seems that way.

What's tempting your wallet?

My list

28 Days Later
A Christmas Story (16x9)
Bend It Like Beckham
Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang SE
Christmas Vacation SE
Dick Van Dyke - Season One
Disney Treasures - Donald Duck
Escape From New York SE
Finding Nemo
Great Gatsby
Indiana Jones Trilogy
Knife In The Water
Lawrence of Arabia Superbit
Le Cercle Rouge
Looney Tunes Collection
LOTR:Twin Towers EE
Mary Poppins SE
Once Upon a Time In the West
Pretty Baby
Scarface SE
Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines
The Great Gatsby
The Italian Job
The Lion King: SE
The Matrix: Reloaded
The Pirates Of The Carribean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl
You Only Live Twice (perhaps a couple other Bonds as well)

Of course, there are probably additional titles of interest that haven't even been announced yet ...

Not that i'm wanting to tempt fate but i suspect the moderators will close this thread as there is always a weekly buying thread.

As has been said already, listing purchases is already done every week. A thread listing probably purchases is overkill. Closing duplicate.
