Staying inside and cozy

Just finished watching, for the very first time, "A Brief Encounter", from this box set (scroll down to near the bottom to read about this particular film). Incredible movie! one of those that is often imitated but never matched. Be prepared to get teary-eyed if you decide to give it a try.

I'd bought the box primarily to get my hands on a copy of "Blithe Spirit", which I adore (the previous DVD release in this region was consistently criticized as being very poor quality, with the colour ... clarity of which is an essential part of the film ... all muddied, so I wasn't even bothering with the secondhard market for it). This new release is crisp and perfect, with Elvira being exactly the colour she's supposed to be.

After rustling up some food, I plan to watch the other two movies in the set ... both also new to me. Seems the only sensible thing to do if the weather is going to persist in playing around at winter (yes, it did snow again this morning).
