Movies:

Up (4 Disc Combo Pack with Digital Copy and DVD) [Blu-ray]

One of the best movies of the year! Pixar has done it again; that should just be added to the lexicon dictionary.

Star Trek (Three-Disc +Digital Copy) [Blu-ray]

I wasn’t a Star Trek fan, but now I am after seeing this movie. If you don’t own this already, this would be perfect for the holidays.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy & BD-Live) [Blu-ray]

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was an excellent adaptation of the book. Of course some things were left out from the book but overall, I really liked this movie! Obviously this would be ideal for HP fans.

Angels & Demons (Two-Disc Extended Edition)

Not as good as Da Vinci Code I think, but still worth owning or buying for someone who’s into this sort of stuff.

Inglourious Basterds (Two-Disc Special Edition)

Can’t find a better Holiday present than a movie about Killing Hitler and Nazis!

Laser Mission

Want to see a bad movie? (And I mean REALLY BAD movie) Than Laser Mission (or how the credits show: “Aser Missio”) would be a great gag gift for people that like awful movies.

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter [Blu-ray]

People looking for a new Christmas movie…look no further than Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter! Also available on DVD!

Barbie Twilight Edward Doll

You can’t have the real Edward ladies. Its not gonna happen. But you teenagers and creepy mothers can now “play” with your very own Edward Cullen Barbie doll.

Disney / Pixar Up Movie 11 Inch Talking Plush Figure Dug

“I do not like the cone of shame.”

Joss Whedon Serenity Movie Logo Mens T-Shirt

Serenity geeks will like this shirt. The holiday gift I want from Serenity would be Inara haha.

The Hangover is an overrated comedy but this shirt is funny.

Best album of the year!

The Rifles – Great Escape

My 2nd favorite album of the year!

Madness – The Liberty of Norton Folgate

Madness is back with an incredible album

Tom Waits – Glitter and Doom Live

Good live album from the eccentric Tom Waits. I just wish the selection of songs were better.

Frank Turner – Poetry of the Deed

I just got into Frank Turner’s music this year but he has quickly skyrocketed amongst the best musicians out there right now. I also recommend checking out his album from 2008 called Love Ire and Song

A new Bosstones album!? Now that’s a holiday gift!

Woodstock: 3 Days of Peace & Music Director’s Cut (40th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Yeah….man

Kaiser Chiefs – Live at Elland Road

Kaiser Chiefs rock and so does this DVD

Keane – Live [Blu-ray]

I like Keane but never saw them live. Who knows if this DVD is any good or not.

Cool documentary about the ska band Mustard Plug. Plus has some music videos and live footage!

Nothing says Christmas like a GG Allin bobble head covered in blood and in a speedo

the Beatles Trivial Pursuit

Think you know everything about the Beatles big shot?

Bose® SoundDock® Portable digital music system

I highly recommend one of these!

TV:

Band of Brothers [Blu-Ray]

Best war mini-series/movie/etc. ever! Hopefully the Pacific is just as good, which comes out in March 2010

John Adams (HBO Miniseries)

Seeing Paul Giamatti as John Adams in a sex scene was a bit disgusting but other than that, this mini-series is fantastic! I wish we could get a mini-series on each president..well except the last one we had.


The Unit: The Complete Giftset

I’ve already praised this show enough, but might as well do it again. An excellent TV series that didn’t get picked up for a new season this year (lame!). But the 4 seasons were awesome and offered something fresh each episode.

Lost: The Complete Fifth Season

Freakin’ awesome series with lots of cool extras as well. Only 1 more season to go and then our lives will feel very empty.

The Complete Monty Python’s Flying Circus Collector’s Edition Megaset

The complete collection of Monty Python episodes is now only 60 dollars! I paid over 100 bucks for this stuff a few years ago. So jump at the chance of getting this now.

Monty Python: Almost The Truth

This 6 part documentary is extensive, very funny and very informative about Monty Python. It aired on IFC in October but now you can own it on DVD and Blu-Ray. 6 hours later, I still feel like I don’t know the comedy troupe that well.

Family Guy Presents: Something Something Something Dark Side

Just in time for Xmas is the newest Family Guy spoof on Star Wars, this time they spoof Empire Strikes Back! I hope they make fun of Luke and Leia kissing, since they are brother and sister after all.

Rome: Complete Series

The show has violence, great acting, nudity and sex, what’s not to love?!

The IT Crowd: The Complete Third Season

The latest season of IT Crowd was hysterical, but be sure to get the first two seasons as well!

Amazing series starring Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. It will make you want to get on a motorbike and see the world.

Transformers: 25th Anniversary Matrix Of Leadership Edition [The Complete Series]

I’d love to get this set but it’s just too much money. Unless Santa wants to buy me this?

Black Adder Remastered: The Ultimate Edition

One of the best British comedies of all time.

Fawlty Towers: The Complete Collection Remastered

Same goes for Fawlty Towers!

Futurama: The Complete Collection

Futurama is coming out with even more new episodes but at least this collection will hold you over until more come out.

Coupling – The Complete Seasons 1-4

One of my favorite TV shows!

Seinfeld – The Complete Series

You can just watch the episodes on TV every night but still nice to own

Adding Zombies will make any book better. I can’t wait for the Bernstein Bears Visit Zombieland edition.

Learn about Mackenzie’s creepy, disgusting love affair with her Father John Phillips (of Mamas and the Papas). I bet things will be awkward at their next Holiday dinner hahaha.

Where’s Waldo is a great children book to read on the crapper.

The Complete Calvin and Hobbes (Calvin & Hobbes) (v. 1, 2, 3) [BOX SET]

I didn’t like Calvin and Hobbes as much as other things but this would be a sweet gift.

The Complete Far Side 1980-1994 (2 vol set)
