Do you keep your Criterion releases with your regular edition DVD's?

I have amassed a nice collection of Criterion DVD's over the years. Most are 2 disc special edition hooplas that I have a different rack for the oversized, non-single disc DVD's.

My question is..with the single edition Criterions (Killer, Robocop)..should I keep them in the special rack as well or with the regular single editions? Bear in mind I don't have all Criterions together as I like alphabetical better, so don't really want to go that route.

A couple of them are worth some money like The Killer (single) and I have that with the special rack, but it kinda doesn't fit being only a single. Do you know what I mean? I know I am being anal, but I figured if there was anyplace to do it..here would be the place. Any suggestions or comments would be much appreciated. Thanks.

This is a question of organization, and I organize all of my DVDs alphabetical.

I have my DVDs alphabetized but once I get a few more Criterions I have thought of making a Criterion section. I don't have enough to justify doing that right now.

i find that organizing by studio then alphabetically is the best way -- snappers and keep cases just don't look good next to each other

The only thing you "should" do is organize them any way to want. Don't let someone else tell you how you "should" organize your DVD.

Everyone has there own way. Here, it seems like ABC order is how most organize their DVDs & from the threads I read the Criterion groupies here seem to organize their Criterions by # order together.

Me, I organize my DVDs by genre, that's the way I like it & that's the way my Criterions get stores regardless of the #s or keeping them together.

Well, I organize by case type but since Criterions are always in keepcases... They go alpha with the keepcases.

Same here. The only exception is box sets of films. I do organize those alphabetically as well, but in their own separate section. For example, "The Adventures of Indiana Jones" comes first followed by "Alien Quadrilogy", etc.

I do straight alpabetical for all (irregardless of CC or not) except for the television genre, which is in a separate area, alphabetical.

The only exception to alphabetical for me is serieses; I file sequels together with their original, but keep it chronological by story. So, for instance, 'The Adventures of Indiana Jones' is filed under 'R' for 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' (*NOT* 'Indiana Jones and the Raiders...'), but, within the box itself, 'Temple of Doom' comes before 'Raiders', because it's a prequel. [Ditto the Dollars trilogy filed, sans box, under 'F', but 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly' comes before 'Fistful of Dollars' or 'For A Few Dollars More'.]

At some point, I'd like to buy all the Bond movies, but I'm not sure what I'd file those under, 'B' or 'D'.

Alphabetical works for me. I've thought about going with categories like Criterion - Favorite Directors (Hitchcock, for example) - Best Picture - .......where would I put Rebecca or Silence of the Lambs? Do i keep them part of the year in one category and then move them for the winter?

Yep, all my DVDs, whether criterion or even concert dvds, just go alphabetically.

Of course I'm not die heard and have a fairly small collection, but I'd do it this way regardless of size, other than maybe putting the concert ones by themselves.

I keep the Criterions separate on top of a dvd case I built myself....then I organize everything else by year (i.e. Gone With the Wind to Open Range are the present endcaps). I'm considering going alphabetical though....just for something to do....

I also have Hithcock, and the Kubrick & Eastwood collection discs separated out too....but that might also change if I go alphabetical.

I have basically 5 sections to my collection:

1) Signed DVDs are arranged to where you can glimpse the covers

2) Boxsets

3) Anime

4) Criterions by spine #

5) Everything else in alphabetical

I organize my DVDs by genre. But I might switch to alphabetical ordering because some of the DVDs can be in more than one genre. And I have enough DVDs that it's getting hard to remember what genre I put a DVD under.

Same here. I actually dipped mine in bronze -- cases, shelves, and all -- and placed the resulting statuary on display as an installation piece in my front yard. True, I can no longer watch the discs, but the birds have a place to rest and eat, and the neighborhood children a wall to take cover behind during particularly heated snowball fights.

Somehow I think Renoir would have wanted it that way...

5 sections:
- Criterions by spine number
- Music, alpha by artist
- Disney (mainly animated), alpha
- Everything else, including boxes, alpha
- TV seasons (only have simpsons & futurama, though)

it works for me
