Rupert's 2012 Holiday Buying Guide for Film Geeks

This is my 3rd year doing a Movie Geek Gift Guide(see 2010 & 2011 also) and the lists just keep getting beefier and beefier. This year saw the rise of great releases from Shout Factory's Scream Factory arm as well as continued greatness from Olive Films, Warner Archive and other studio MODs. Plenty to recommend here outside of your big boxset releases(Indiana Jones etc) and banner catalog titles. Below are a whole bunch of my favorite catalog releases from 2012. Hopefully there's something here for film nerds of all kinds. Enjoy!

Coonskin's out on DVD?!? WHEN did this happen? Why wasn't I informed! Harumph!

Is Band of the Hand an after-school special or something like that? I remember is was a multi-parter and I only saw the first part. I'd love to be able to watch the rest of it.

Coonskin is one I need to import at some.

Didn't realise the WWE finally dusted off No Holds Barred; having heard about how ridiculous it is, it's great it can actually be bought now.
