Ten Movies You Should Buy (Or Rent) Right Now

A Listmania! list by Donna (Andover, MA USA)
 
The Princess Bride [VHS]
1.  The Princess Bride [VHS] VHS Cary Elwes
The list author says:
  "This is the most wonderful movie ever created.  It has humor, fantasy, romance, action, suspence, and Cary Elwes when he was young.  May I ask what more you need?"
$6.50   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3,124 customer reviews) | 17 customer discussions

Monty Python and the Holy Grail [VHS]
2.  Monty Python and the Holy Grail [VHS] VHS Graham Chapman
The list author says:
  "I have had this movie memorized since I was ten years old, and it is just as funny as the first time.  So many classic lines come out of this film.  It is impossible to describe how funny this is."
$0.89   Used & New from: $0.01
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,370 customer reviews) | 10 customer discussions

The Game [VHS]
3.  The Game [VHS] VHS Michael Douglas

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (494 customer reviews)

Twelfth Night [VHS]
4.  Twelfth Night [VHS] VHS Helena Bonham Carter
The list author says:

Forever Fairytales - Beauty and the Beast (not Disney) [VHS]
5.  Forever Fairytales - Beauty and the Beast (not Disney) [VHS] VHS Perrault's Charles
The list author says:
  "Okay, so no picture for this one.  Disney has never made a better film.  Belle is every girl, struggling to fit in and look beyond first impressions.  Some of the greatest animated music, too."
Used & New from: $5.29

See buying options
Dark City [VHS]
6.  Dark City [VHS] VHS Rufus Sewell
The list author says:
  "The second mind-bending movie.  More paranoia will ensue.  Are we who we think we are?  Or are we being controlled?  When was the last time YOU saw daylight?"
$3.00   Used & New from: $0.01
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (810 customer reviews) | 9 customer discussions

Clue [VHS]
7.  Clue [VHS] VHS Eileen Brennan
The list author says:
  "An ingenious retelling of the board game.  Tim Curry deserves a medal for pulling off the farce ending without losing too much dignity.  Hilariously dark."
$15.25   Used & New from: $0.25
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,191 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Dogma [VHS]
8.  Dogma [VHS] VHS Ben Affleck
The list author says:
  "Blasphemous, clever, dark, and full of cuss words.  I wouldn't suggest this movie if you are remotely relgious or plan to be so.  Alan Rickman is delightlfully cynical."
$7.00   Used & New from: $0.50
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (858 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

American Beauty (The Awards Edition) [VHS]
