A Very His and Hers Christmas Wish List

Seen as there is no noticable DVD releases this week, we thought it might be different to give you all a Christmas wish list for all the cinephiles in your life. While it may be a bit late to get some of these, unless you're prepared to fork arm over fist for postage, there's always the sales...

Standing at the moment at a whopping £92.99 on Amazon at the moment, The Herschell Gordon Lewis Feast may be expensive, but it does contain 14 of Lewis' cult classic back catalogue, including Color Me Blood Red, She-Devil's on Wheel's and The Wizard of Gore. If you like copious amounts of ketchup-blood in your trash movies, then the Feast is for you.

Not everyone is into large plastic toys commemorating their favourite film characters, but there is a hell of a lot of people out there that are. Pop Funko has really cornered the market when it comes to these space-claimers, but if do decide to get one, make it count. Our favourites come in the over-sized versions of Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and the Alien Queen.

There are tonnes of books out there detailing the directors methods when it comes to their filmmaking, but do any of them describe their passion for recreating car crashes as a toddler, and their fandom for mass murderers? While now in its 35th year of release, John Waters "Shock Value" is an excellent read, even if you haven't seen any of his films (even though it maybe worth Googling some of them before hand, just so you know what you're getting yourself into). Hilarious and passionate, you might as well pick up "Crackpot" and "Role Models" while you're at it.

OK, so not a film, but Game of Thrones has to be one of the best TV programmes out there at the moment (and don't even get me started on the books, so good...). If you want an interesting present for the GoT-maniac in your life, then a replica of one Daenerys Targaryan's dragon egg's is a must. If only dragon's did exist...

Of course, there is the easy options, which also doubles as the best option for cinephiles. Cinema vouchers are easy to come by, you can kind of invite yourself along as well (if so inclined) and you can save them up for a movie that's worth going to the cinema for. While there is a lot of dumb films coming out in 2017, I'm looking forward to Blade Runner 2049, and Richee's looking forward to Baywatch (of course he is...).
