post #4 of 29
@ Lhezzza: Are you starting a retail or video rental business or what?!

That's quite a collection! We recently got a DVD player, but I don't know that there are many movies I could justify owning. So far, the only exceptions are:

1) The Schoolhouse Rock Collection

2) The Lord of the Rings Movies (waiting til Nov. 12 for "expanded" edition)

Enjoy!
post #5 of 29
Lizza your DVD collection looks like mine! We have something like 130 DVDs. We've watched most of them, but there are a few that I got because I wanted to see the movie and never got around to it. I went through a phase when we first got it and still had money. LOL Now we have to be real picky since money is tight.

Lord of the Rings is definitely a must-have though! I agree with you there Bill.
post #6 of 29
I only have about 12, give or take a few. Most are Disney and hubby has his Redux Apocolypse Now. I can't forget Harry Potter!
post #7 of 29
I got my Dvd player simply because they started releasing The X-Files by season. So, now my meager collections looks like this:

The X-Files Seasons 1-4 (working on getting 5, damn money )
Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 1&2
When Harry Met Sally
X-Men
Robin Hood (not Disney)
The Aristocats (Disney)
Say Anything (LOVE IT!!! If you like the movie get the DvD, great features.)
Return To Me


I think that is it, but I know I want to own more .

Oh Goodness..... I bought another Disney Movie on-line this morning....

Beauty and the Beast

(an all time favorite!)

Yeah, I know I'm a junkie!!!
post #9 of 29
We haven't purchased a DVD player/recorder as we've invested a lot in our video collection, which we've been working on for 10 years. A dying medium - but it makes no sense for us to invest in DVD unless it's recordable, and the industry standard hasn't been set yet, so if you record on a DVD recorder, you can't necessarily play it back on a different manufacturer's machine.

I included movies in my "obsession" list.

Including the movies we have recorded (sometimes 2/3 on one tape), we have 744 movies. All have been watched, many of them multiple times. Hubby has (what today is diagnosed as) "ADD" - attention deficit disorder. He works better if there's lots going on around him, and he can't fall asleep unless something's playing on the TV.

Because we we live in an R.V., most of them are in storage at any given time, but we "rotate" them out regularly.

I'll list our favorites (not in any order).

Dr. Strangelove (is my favorite movie of all time)
The In-Laws
Simon
It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World
Young Frankenstein
Most of the Abbott & Costello movies.
(Favorite is A&C Meet Frankenstein & the Wolfman)
Strange Brew
All the Pink Panther movies
Many Rocky & Bullwinkle episodes (most valuable is the Pottsylvania Creeper)
Many Woody Allen movies. Favorite is Love & Death
The National Lampoon Vacation movies
Monty Python: Life of Brian
Monty Python: MP and the Holy Grail
All the Fawly Towers series
All the Black Adder series
We have a lot of Bill Murray movies (favorites are Where the Buffalo Roam and The Man Who Knew Too Little)
..a lot of John Candy movies:
Love SCTV and just about anything Harold Ramis and Christopher Guest have done
Club Paradise
W.C. Fields: Bank Dick, My Little Chickadee and International House
Lots of the Stooges.
Other Peter Sellers: Murder By Death, The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu, Being There
Volunteers
Lots of Sgt. Bilko (Old TV show w/Phil Silvers)
Most of the Honeymooners episodes (including many "Lost" episodes and "Hidden" episodes)
Most of the Marx Brothers movies
All the Bing Crosby/Bob Hope "Road Picture" movies

Mystery/Action/Drama

All the Agatha Christie movies that were made with Peter Ustinov as Hercule Poirot
Murder on the Orient Express
Most Hitchcock movies. Favorite is Rebecca
Room With A View
All of the Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes movies
Most Charlie Chan movies
The 13th Warrior
Jaws
Lord of the Rings (new)

Henry V (Kenneth Branaugh)
A Man for All Seasons
Beckett
Lawrence of Arabia
Mutiny on the Bounty (1935 version with Charles Laughton and Clarke Gable, NOT the version with Marlon Brando)
Scarface
The Godfather series
Boondock Saints
Many Humphrey Bogart Movies (Favorites: The Big Sleep, The Maltese Falcon, Key Largo and Casablanca)
Rollerball (the OLD one with James Caan)
A lot of the James Bond movies
All the Bruce Lee movies


Sci-Fi:

Aliens (all of them)
All Star Trek movies (Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan is favorite. There is no other movie where the soundtrack is better matched to set moods - not even Amadeus)
Apollo 13
Capricorn One
Marooned (Gene Hackman at his absolute best)
Escape From NY
The Thing (1951 and 1982)
Of course, all the Star Wars movies
All the Planet of the Apes movies (the old ones)
Outland
West World
Matrix
Independence Day

War:

Sink the Bismark
Torah! Torah! Torah!
Stalingrad
A Bridge Too Far
Das Boot
Ice Station Zebra
The Bridge on the River Kwai
Fail Safe: one of the most chilling cold war movies made
Von Ryan's Express
The Great Escape
Many more


Horror:

The Shining (the OLD one, with Jack Nicholson)
The Hitcher
Psycho Series (again only the OLD one, with Anthony Perkins)
Bela Lugosi movies (Favorite is Dracula)
Lon Cheney (Favorite is Wolfman)
Exorcist and Exocist III (George C. Scott is GREAT)
The Mummy movies - old and new
Vincent Price movies
Boris Karloff movies


Westerns:

Many John Wayne flicks
The Wild Bunch


I could go on almost forever. ...and I'm sure I'm forgetting some that I absolutely LOVE.

And yes, as we travel around the country, we often find Video stores going out of business....

post #10 of 29
Love X-Files and Say Anything.

We also have lots of Disneys - Favorite is Jungle Book.

Also forgot The Odd Couple and Odd Couple II. Odd Couple II was made 17 years after the end of the television series, and it was the best sequel ever made.

Obviously I have no opinions about this...
post #11 of 29
Bill...I love The Lord of The Rings!!! I can't wait for the next one!!!
Leslie, you have two of my favorites on your list..."10 Things I Hate About You" (first movie I ever saw Health Ledger in ) and Nottinghill (Hugh Grant is so sexy and I love Julia Roberts!..that guy in his underwear is hilarious!! :laughing: )

Laurie, don't feel bad...up until last Christmas, we did not own a DVD, and only now have one because it came with the new Playstation we bought for the kids. I just couldn't justify buying one and spending the money on it when we have so many videos and like you said, you can't really record on most of them...I tape my soap opera every day while I'm at work, and even if we could record on one, I don't know if you could program it to come on and tape at a certain time???
Anyway...we have one with the playstation, and have had it for a year almost, but still have not bought one single DVD. I don't even have a clue how to use the DVD player. I'm sure it's not that hard, but reading the directions that came with it it sounded a bit confusing.
Plus the playstation is in the kids room, so we would either have to bring it in and hook it up in the living room everytime we wanted to watch a DVD, or watch it on the kids TV. Too much of a hassel.

Also, Laurie, I know this is off topic, but you mentioned your hubby has "ADD"....my brother has been diagnosed with that, and he thinks for sure I have it, he says it is hereditary, and that both mom and dad had it, he is sure. I have read a very good book on it, and I think I probably DO have it...but I am not being treated for it. To be treated or it, I would have to go through a bunch of tests in Des Moines (70 miles away) because they don't do that at our small local clinic or hospital. And my husband thinks it is a bunch of bologna, so he doesn't think I need to be on any medication for it. (he's just that way...he also doesn't believe in anti-depressants. )
Anyway, just had to throw that in. I have soooo many symptoms of ADD!!!

Okay, back to the DVD discussion!! :laughing: (sorry)
post #12 of 29
I forgot - I just bought hubby the 1st season of Sanford and Son on DVD. It is his fav show of all time.
post #13 of 29
Wow! It seems like the trend here is that you either have A LOT of DVD's or you have hardly any. :LOL: As for hubby and I, I think we fall into the catergory of having alot. I think we have somewhere around 50, maybe more, maybe a few less. Hubby is really picky about his DVD's. He won't let ANYONE at all borrow them because he is afraid of them getting scratched or broken. Plus, they are kind of expensive.

Next on our list of DVD's to get is Monsters Inc., The Glass House, Moulan Rouge, Monster's Ball, A Walk to Remember...I could go on and on and on...

We got our DVD player about 2 years ago and we went nuts buying DVDs. :laughing:
post #14 of 29
Hubby LOVES Sanford & Son. Adrienne - does your Hubby like All In The Family, too? (Same era of show). It's up there on our favorites list.
post #15 of 29
Surprisingly, I don't have any DVDs yet, although I had CDs before I had a CD player I've already asked for a combo VHS/DVD player for Christmas, and I know what DVDs I'm going to get first:

Harry Potter
Lord of the Rings super deluxe edition
Rose Red (Hey, I liked the mini-series, and the DVD is way cheaper than the tape)
Evil Dead deluxe edition
post #16 of 29
Spooky - I think your Hubby's right to be picky about the DVDs. I personally think it's a terrible medium. All the extras and the quality are cool - but they do get damaged so easily. We have a lot of CDs, and it's SO frustrating to spend that money and then have them get scratched or something.
post #17 of 29
Laurie, DVDs are actually tougher than they look. Earl is notoriously hard on everything - CDs, console games, everything. We haven't had one DVD get scratched or broken, and he plays them on his computer, we take them to friend's houses, etc. I am very careful with them, but Earl just isn't that careful with much of anything.

One of the things I like about DVD is that you can't wear it out, and it doesn't get brittle after a few years. If you ask Earl, and I have to agree on this point, the sound and picture quality is a ton better than VHS. But we also have the full surround sound, yadda yadda yadda. I'm completely sold on DVD.

Also wanted to add that Strange Brew is finally released on DVD, as of yesterday I think. I'm so excited. I'm not usually that into comedy, but that one is classic, eh hosers?
post #18 of 29
I would say "Take off, eh?" but one can't argue about the quality thing. But I also think that so far you've just been lucky. I hate to sound like some old woman, but I've lived through Vinyl, 8-track, cassettes, CDs, etc. and I kind of compare the VHS and DVD to cassettes and CDs. With cassettes and VHS tapes, there's always the problem of the tape getting caught in a dirty machine, and they definitely "wear out" over time. I don't like VHS better than DVD. I'm just pissed that as long as the world is going digital, just pick a better medium! Look at the mini-disk. It comes in it's own "container," so you have all the advantages of the quality of CD or DVD, but you don't run the risk of scratching them. Kind of like when with computers they moved from actual floppy discs to what you know as a floppy disc - which is the original version of a floppy disc contained in a plastic casing.

OMG !!!!!!!!!!!
Hey , I have 2 teenagers here who got berserk as I showed them this huge list of DVD's you have !!!! When can they come ??

Laurie!!! I LOVE All In The Family!!!!!!! I am addicted to that show and have many of the episodes on video. I was sad about Carroll O'Connor passing away. He was great!!!

We download "hard to find shows" to DVD.... to to Mophris.com and you can download pretty much anything....

But becareful, we downloaded, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (ummmm.... we started to watch it, and it was VERY R-rated)

Nick had accidently downloaded the porn version.... it was very a funny accidently (which I quickly distroyed!)
post #23 of 29
Oh that is too funny.

And Deb - we taped a couple of All in the Family marathons. I love the one with Sammy Davis, Jr. the best. I think I like the one where Edith buys the Cling Peaches next.

You know what other show I love? Green Acres! The ones where everyone thinks Mr. Douglas is a drunk we find to be almost side-splitting. Strange, aren't we?

post #24 of 29
...or Debby, what about the episode where Archie needs a lawyer because he hit a car full of nuns? He, of course, wants a Jewish lawyer. Because of his neighborhood, the Jewish law firm he picks out of the yellow pages sends the token Christian. Archie is staring at him in disbelief and anger, and finally shouts, "Go Back To Where You Came From and Bring Me A Jew!"

It was one of the first real "issues" shows in a comedy format. I love(d) it!
post #25 of 29
I just got my dvd player for Christmas last year, so my collection is still quite small. I have a ton of Disney movies on VHS... it irks me that I don't have them on dvd now. I'm also guilty of not watching all of the dvds that I do have, but most of them I've actually seen before... all except for Unbreakable anyway.

American Pie 1 & 2
The Aristocats (Disney)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Seasons 1 & 2
Dirty Dancing
Hercules (Disney)
Highlander - End Game
Monsters, Inc. (Disney)
Office Space
The Sixth Sense
Unbreakable
The Usual Suspects
post #26 of 29
Laurie, yes I remember all the episodes you mentioned, except the Cling Peaches one....it doesn't ring a bell. My favorite is when Edith is going through the change of life and she is really moody and she tells Archie to stifel (sp?) it!! :laughing: I taped a ton of them from the Nick at Night marathons!!!! And I have a few I bought as well, like the anniversary edition etc. I can't get enough of them! His (Archies) facial expressions and the things he says are just so good!!!! I just watched a Sammy Davis Jr. one the other night!

He does! It plays everyday on a local tv station and he constantly watches it.
post #28 of 29
Debby - I'd forgotten about that one - (Shame on me!) It was hysterical!!!! It IS the best Edith one.

The one with the cling peaches: Edith goes shopping. As she tells the story to Archie: she was done shopping and going out to the car. She stopped to see someone's new baby. She lifted her hands to her face to say "What a pretty Baby!" and the cart rolled away from her and when it stopped, a can of cling peaches popped out of the bag and dented a car. So she left a note. (Which of course makes Archie mad). In the episode, Archie is sure that the person is going to bilk them for all kinds of money. After all the usual antics, it turns out to be a priest. But what makes it so funny is, you know how Edith can never just straight out tell a story. She wasy driving Archie mad, and he shouted at her to "Stop mentioning 'Cling Peaches' - I don't want to hear those words again." So Edith had to keep going "hmmmmmmm" instead of using the words cling peaches. ROTFL.
post #29 of 29
Hahahahaha!!! NOW I remember it!!!!! The thing I always liked about Archie was that through his rough exterier, he actually had a heart of gold. He would never have hurt Edith, and loved her very much, and some of the shows are quite touching, like when they found out Gloria was seeing another man and leaving Mike *meathead*. After all the crap Archie had given Mike through the years, he still felt very bad for his son-in-law, and you could tell he actually had affection for him.
