Top 10 Movie Themed Gifts to Give This Holiday Season – 2018

Yes, it's true, it cannot all be action figures under the tree Junkies. Certainly not every member of your family needs or wants either a Black Series Gammorean Guard or a DC Multiverse Justice League Parademon. We dive into movies a lot here on AFJ. In the past few months, we have taken note of a few select movie-themed items that will make great gifts. Certainly, the latest Marvel, DC, and Star Wars Blu-rays are easy gifts, but more than likely they will already have them. What is contained below is a little different and new. If you act now you should be able to find the following, without trouble. If need be, you can pass this along and say, hey, these are good suggestions. #AFJ4LIFE

The Making of Planet of the Apes - Book
Release Date: October 23rd, 2018
Order it HERE.
I have numerous Planet of the Apes "Behind-the-Scenes" books. Many of them were not published with either the technology or resources that Jonathan Rinzler's new book possesses. The pictures, the artwork, the sketches, all of it are here in breathtaking color (and crisp Black and White) making one believe that this film was made yesterday. All of us know at least one Ape fan, and this just dropped at the end of October!

The Original Christmas Specials Collection - Deluxe Edition Blu-ray

Release Date: October 16th, 2018
Order it HERE.
The holidays are a nightmare of shopping and getting in and out with as little as stress as possible. Many of us will shop online, however, I highly recommend either getting it in the stores, I have seen it everywhere, or flat up order it online, but the kids will love it. You'll look it with a fondness, yet a cocked eyebrow stance at times, and you won't have to set the DVR for when any of these classics will be on. It is literally the gift you will have for years to come.

The Princess Bride - Criterion Collection Release Blu-ray Date: October 30th, 2018
Order it HERE.
Rob Reiner's classic film has never looked or sounded better than it does with this fantastic Criterion release. Certainly, a film for everyone and a perfect after the holidays treat to share with the whole family. Criterion discs are always a tad pricer, but with them readily available at Barnes and Noble (who literally releases a coupon every week between now and January 1st), you should have no problem picking this title up for less than it is marked.

Zombie 3-Disc Limited Edition 4K Restoration Blu-rayRelease Date: November 27, 2018
Order it HERE.
We have a full review of this title HERE on AFJ. With that being said, the limited edition 3 disc set also includes the soundtrack and an incredible booklet giving you more insight into this seminal zombie film. We all have that friend or family member that loves horror. More than likely this film is in their top 10 of all time.

Batman: The Complete Animated Series Deluxe Limited Edition Blu-rayRelease Date: October 30th, 2018
Order it HERE.
You simply cannot go wrong with this box set. Not only do you get every episode remastered on Blu-ray, two films (Batman: Mask of the Phantasm and Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero), 3 mini-pop figures, but digital copies of every episode too. This is a gift that anyone and everyone should get. Plus, if you have a young one at home that needs to discover Batman, in all his glory, what more do you need?

Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years - Book

Release Date: November 20th, 2018
Order it HERE.
Not only are Marvel fans rabid, but they have a lot to celebrate. Giving them Titan's First Ten Years book is as if you are handing them their own trophy. There are tons of profiles on the characters here as well as Easter Eggs to look for (to say the least). Additionally, the best part of about giving someone a book is that it gets their eyes off a screen for a few hours at least. 

The Critters Collection Blu-ray
Release Date: November 27th, 2018
Order it HERE

Leave it to Scream Factory to deliver a 2K scan of the two original films as well as new commentary tracks special features for all four films. January is often a dark and dreary time. What better to scare away the post-holiday blues than the Critters from outer space!

Universal Classic Monsters: Complete 30-Film Collection Blu-ray
Release Date: August 28th, 2018
Order it HERE

Universal Studios has finally released all 30 of their Classic Monster films on Blu-ray. This means 
DraculaFrankensteinBride of FrankensteinTheWolf ManThe MummyInvisible ManCreature from the Black LagoonPhantom of the Opera and every single one of their sequels, crossovers, and comedic spin-offs are included.

Creepshow Collector's Edition Blu-ray
Release Date: October 23rd, 2018
Order it HERE

Creepshow
 was and is the perfect late-night cable movie. You caught it in bits and pieces and you were never fully aware of what you were watching. It is a dark and twisted collection of stories that leave you wanting more. These stories will make your skin crawl and Scream Factory has beautifully restored the film and supplied you will hours of additional special features. See AFJ's full review HERE.
