There are a lot of Criterion films out (or coming out) that I would like to procure:
Ace in the Hole
All That Heaven Allows
Design For Living
The Gold Rush
His Girl Friday (coming out in January)
The Lady Eve
Sweet Smell of Success
There are some movies that are now Criterion releases that I already own the regular, run of the mill release. I'd have to see if the Criterion version offers anything new or different that would make buying a second copy worthwhile. I hate having duplicate movies in my collection--it feels like a waste of money unless the new version offers something different or new.
I love buying my favorite TV shows on DVD or at the very least, watch them on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon (wherever it may be available) because the syndicated versions are edited for time. I would much rather see complete, unedited episodes of my shows. When I got my DVDs of I Love Lucy for the first time, probably a decade or so ago, it opened my eyes to how much I was missing by having only seen the Nick at Nite versions for the last ten years or so. There was so much content I was missing. Now, after having seen the DVDs so many times, if I happen to catch an episode of I Love Lucy in syndication on DVD, the amount of material I'm missing is unbearable. I cannot watch I Love Lucy in syndication.
I have a huge list of "wants" on the Warner Archive MOD website as well. Hopefully Christmas will prove lucrative.
