Richard E Grant's closet picks.... He's fun
I'm fascinated that he doesn't seem to be paying any attention to whether he's grabbing the DVD version or Blu-Ray version of titles that are in both formats.

That's very often the case in these videos. I always supposed they were, after the video, sorting all these out and making sure they were leaving the building with the right formats, but that for the video itself, they were just grabbing those without caring.

Anyone else unable to add the Mishima Blu-ray to their My Collection page like I am? Really weird glitch that doesn't seem to effect other titles I own.

He's right about The Blob theme song! (I'd never want to listen to Nino Rota on acid, though.)

What a random place to find one of two old guys from the muppets hanging out. I wonder how that happened?

Nathan Lane in the closet.
(Save your breath, he already made the closeted joke)

I really hope he was there also for an interview for a forthcoming release of The Man Who Came to Dinner. He is the only actor I know of that not only performed the titular role of the play the film is based on stage but also contributed to the long overlooked musical version of the play, Sherry.

I really love his outline ideas for a Being There musical! And that TV version of Valley of the Dolls he mentions appears to be his first credit on imdb!

I am usually a big proponent of "closet videos mean nothing, people stop in as part of press tours and stuff" but considering the realities of the pandemic (assuming this was from the past year-plus) it still seems extremely unlikely they're having people come in just for fun. It could of course be for a channel thing (he'd be a fun Adventures in Moviegoing) but something about the matter-of-fact way he mentions the Birdcage makes me wonder if they could be doing something for that (much like 9to5, a movie I think has recently really come into its own as a movie a lot of people love and which does of course have the bona fides of Elaine May and Mike Nichols). It's with MGM and had an earlier release but seems like something one of the labels would have gotten despite that earlier release.

Completely unrelated and weird post, but every time I see a Ribs post with that “dame-moon” avatar, I flash back to the day the Bergman set was announced. Was there even some provisional acknowledgment of or small hullabaloo for Ribs that day? I was a lurker then, but always thought that was a real banner day for the poster who had gone all in on “dämonregissören”. Ribsy shoulda got a free boxset, I says.
