Worst: IZO (Miike fan, but WTF, this movie sucked)...Bought it at Wal-fart, watched it, gouged my eyes out, and sold it.

Best: not sure, Punisher (2004) maybe

Worst: Hatred of a Minute Got it because it was produced by Bruce Campbell and starred Gunnar Hansen.

How many people really "blind" buy without knowing anything about the movie other than what it says on the back?
Unfortunately, this sometimes doesnt work out...I almost blind bought Wolf Creek as well for example, as it seems like something right up my alley, and the reviews were pretty good. Im so glad I didnt buy it now and settled for a rental because I was highly disappointed in it.

I think its worse with bb because you think it will be good and you spend your hard earned on it, just to watch it and wish that you would have used better sense at the time, and bought something you wish you knew was better. That said, Im usually pretty lucky.

Best: Arrested Development...simply brilliant. Easily my most-watched TV set, possibly most-watched DVD period.

Worst: The most recent mistake would have to be A History Of Violence. While it's far from the "worst" blind buy I've ever made, it's the most recent one that comes to mind. The movie just didn't do anything for me.
