I have given up on the Bluebird of Happiness arriving this holiday season. With all the flu in the house, I will settle for a day of no one arguing or crying, and some cuddle time on the couch with some good movies. Fortunately Amazon has some awesome Blu-ray bundles on sale right now.
I like to call it getting back to my couch-potato roots.
For the whole family:
Shrek: The Whole Story (all 4 films) for $39 (49% off)
Back to the Future Trilogy for $39 (51% off) and you can get a $10 gift card with purchase—thanks, Gayle! (Do not even talk to me about how this is now “retro;” this is good entertainment, kids! Be quiet and watch!)
Planet Earth: The Complete BBC Series for $35 (65% off)
Life (narrated by David Attenborough) for $35.49 (49% off)
National Geographic: Ultimate High-Definition Collection for $35 (59% off)
Not suitable for kids unless you want to either bore or scare them to death:
The Bourne Trilogy for $35 (50% off)
Band of Brothers for $36.49 (64% off)
The Pacific for $39 (61% off)
Alien Anthology for $70 (50% off) (Four films, plus 65 hours of bonus content. I love all things Alien and will not apologize.)
Maybe for Christmas we’ll have a movie marathon. In our pajamas. Doesn’t that sound great? (Helloooo… McFly?)
