Happy Thanksgiving from PRAKTICALA to all our readers! We hope you enjoy the holiday with friends, family, and good times.
If you’re like us and are pinching pennies this season, here are some of our favorite Black Friday deals for 2016 that won’t cost you an arm and a turkey leg! No need to set your money on fire like in the reused illustration above! Check back throughout the weekend for updates!
Wolfgang Petersen’s TROY is one of those “guilty pleasure” movies for me and I watch it pretty frequently when I want to see big-budget sword-and-sandal carnage and Eric Bana kicking ass. GLADIATOR is of course a modern day classic in the same genre.
If you like Tom Hanks (and who doesn’t???), you can’t pass up on either FORREST GUMP or THE GREEN MILE if you don’t have them already. GUMP harks back to an age of filmmaking when stories had humor, heartbreak, colorful characters, great acting, seamless visual effects, and memorable music. They don’t make many movies like that anymore.
In case you missed the last deal, Amazon has a good price on some more Blu-rays from Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki. The selection of sale items is a little different this time.
I’ve mentioned this before, but if you aren’t familiar with Miyazaki’s work, you need to start catching up. I recommend starting with a feel-good classic – My Neighbor Totoro! If this movie doesn’t make you happy, you are not a human being…
I’m embarrassed to admit I still haven’t seen a few of these. Might have to pick up a couple. For some reason, it is hard to get sale prices on these videos, so jump on the deal if you’re missing any from your library!
