Film favorites to pass the Occupation with — no matter what side you’re on

Action! group
By MICHAEL NEEL  |  December 7, 2011

From the wealthiest stockbroker to the lowliest unemployed college grad, who doesn’t love a good movie? No matter if you’re in the one percent or the 99, all but the most boring people like to kick back, grab some popcorn, and veg out. And both the oppressors and oppressed can agree that the theater experience these days blows: overpriced soda, headache-inducing 3D glasses, crappy Regular-D movies, and inconsiderate assholes blinding you while they check their e-mail on their iPhone. Fortunately, DVDs let you watch whatever you want, how you want it — no matter what your tax bracket.

FOR THE 1%

THE MERIDIAN AUDIO LTD MODEL 800 DVD PLAYER | $19,950 | MERIDIAN-AUDIO.COM

DALLAS SEASONS 1-12 | $344.99AMAZON.COM

What do you get for the person that has everything - literally? Men, how many times can you give your wife a new diamond-encrusted Lexus wrapped in an obnoxiously large red bow? She already has 20 in her solid-gold 200-car garage. And ladies, last year you thought you'd wow your husband with a Christmas feast featuring condor-egg omelets, polar-bear sushi, and wine made from the tears of North Korean sweatshop workers. But your husband yawned and called it blasé and predictable. So now what? Well, how about a $19,950 DVD player? The Meridian Audio Ltd Model 800 DVD player is the finest known to man, so outrageously overpriced that you can almost see it wasting money. What's more, you can watch all 12 seasons of Dallas for $344.99; it costs next to nothing, but looking down your nose at J.R. and the rest of the show's oil barons - such amateurs - is priceless.
