I got a lot of gift cards:

With a Best Buy gift card: Star Wars III and a 2-dvd set with Hellraiser 1 & 2 on it.

With a Borders gift card: The Island

With a Publix (supermarket) gift card: Mr. & Mrs. Jones

With fun cash from Columbia House: War of the Worlds and Stealth

Also, i got one gift of actual dvds, from my best friends i got Season 4 of the tv show 24.

So I continue to add to my collection, there is something about obtaining dvds that just is so pleasureable it becomes addicting, and you cant beat it when they are free!!!

I got 14 DVDs from my girlfriend:) As I have a 2.35:1 CIH, she went out and purposely chose films with an AR of 2.35:1(16:9 enhanced). I so love her:D

I received both movies and music.

For DVDs I was given:

Battlestar Galactica Season 1 Boxed Set (2004)

War of the Worlds (2005)


Batman Begins

For music I received:

The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-1968 (9 CD Boxed Set)

James Dean gift box. Movies are Giant, East of Eden and Rebel Without a Cause. I was impressed because this was given to me by my 22 year old daughter on her own choosing.
I started this thread, and i guess i started it a little too soon.

My wife just gave me:

The New York Yankees Fall Classic Collectors Edition 1996-2001, which is a 7-dvd set of Yankee world series games, highlights, and the full mlb dvd versions of the 96/98/99/2000 world series. Yes, i am a big Yankee fan!

Also got the Eminem cd "Curtain Call". Yeah, even an old fart like me likes him!!!
I got the Eagles Farewell 1 dvd.
I did! :D So far I've gotten these:

House of Flying Daggars (I love cinematography in this movie!)

Tombstone Vista Series (my favourite western ever!)

Serenity (I own the box series of Firefly and I loved this movie in theatres)

Sin City Extended & Recut (awesome......awesome movie!)

Also $90 bucks worth of Best buy gift cards which I plan on using for a xbox 360. Although ill be waiting as that's one of the top gifts. So it may be hard to get but I still have to save for a few weeks to get games but if I see it I will buy just the unit if nessarry.

Also got 15 for target. Don't know what ill get their as their movie selection is very poor even at the super targets.
I got the three Harry Potter DVDs... I told my parents to jump on the $5.99 Target special they had back around Black Friday. My dad ended up getting his own set as well.
i'm banned from receiving either dvd movies or videogames as gifts because i have a tendency to trade them in...
From the Earth to the Moon

3 O'Clock High

Edgeplay - A Film about The Runaways
I got the box set of all 3 seasons of The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, one of the best of the '70s British comedies. In fact it's my favorite britcom ever. :)

Got "Flight of the Phoenix", "SW 3" and for music: "Best of Chris Botti". Hope to pick up Toy Story 2 tomorrow with left over money. Others in the family received: Season 4 ..24, System of a Down "Hypnotize", Ozzfest 10th Anniversary, Slipknot "9.0'. and Motley Crue..

Also, why use grocery store cards for DVD's? Use for food and buy dvd's cheaper somewhere else. My $.02
