My movie collection

Howdy folks. I just thought I’d share some photos of my DVD collection.

This bunch is on a shelf. I have tried my damnedest to arrange them by colour.

These DVDs get the honor of being placed on the crappily-assembled DVD Stand I bought from The Beat Goes On.

Horror in the drawer (part 1)

Horror in the drawer part 2! This time it’s B comedies, concerts, double/quadruple features, and SNL best-ofs. Plus the Evil Dead Books of the Dead.

Box sets here! Everything from James Bond to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s comedy hits.

Finally, the TV DVDs. I loves me some 30 Rock and HIMYM.

But wait! There’s more! I still have VHS tapes.

VHS tapes were a way of viewing movies before DVDs were invented. They cannot be played on a DVD player, but instead a machine called a VCR.

Some of the old favourites! I have updated these to DVD.

Most of these I have not updated to DVD. From Dusk Till Dawn, Men In Black, Twister, Godzilla, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, The French Connection…I have never seen ’em on DVD!

And check out the box-sets. They’re huge!

The Stanley Kubrick set is bigger than my damn head, yo!

Before I finally got a DVD player, I collected “clamshell” VHS sets…they were pretty cool. Often digitally mastered, often with some special features added before or after the movie…and in some cases, even liner notes on the reverse side of the cover sleeve.

Notes on Evil Dead 2, by Bruce “don’t call me Ash” Campbell

Notes on Dawn of the Dead’s 20th Anniversary VHS release by director George A. Romero.

I still enjoy watching VHS tapes from time to time…especially if it’s a cheesy horror flick like Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 or Return of the Killer Tomatoes. And why on earth would I want to watch Blair Witch on any other format?

Ah, my very first VCR. Don’t get too jealous of this baby, I don’t think it works anymore. Note the VHS tape of E.T. and its odd colouring. Back in the 80’s, going green meant something entirely different.

As fun of a trip down memory lane with VHS is, I still like to look forward to the future of home entertainment.

This is my Blu-ray collection so far. I’m sure that by the time I get a respectable collection, the format will be obsolete!
