Gifts for the Film Fan

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, at least if you’re judging by the amount of way-cool movie box sets set to hit the underside of trees (both real and fake) this holiday season. Studios know that there is nothing a film-lover loves more than opening an expensive set of one sort or another – especially when it arrives from Santa or some other saintly family member/friend with the good sense to pony-up and actually get you something worthwhile for a change. Whether you’re looking to buy for someone else (or, perhaps put a bug in someone’s ear for one of these beauties to end up in your stocking) has you covered with a listing of some of the best gifts for the film lover.
