A-z Alphabetically.

THe only thing that is split off are tv dvd box sets, they get their own rack. Everything else goes in line.

*** Bumping an old thread ****

I'm bumping this old thread, because I have a question related to DVD organization.

I organize my DVDs by the type of movie (Action, Drama, Suspense, SciFi/Horror, etc.). Many movies will fit in more than 1 category and I haven't been consistent on which category to use. For example, I put Spiderman and Fantasic 4 in Action, but Superman and Robocop are in SciFi.

I'd like to know what categories you'd use for the following movies:
- Ocean's 11/12/13
- Italian Job (original and remake)
- The Robocop movies
- The Superman movies
- Spiderman movies
- Transformers
- Fantasic 4
- Jumanji / Zathura
- Blade
- Matrix series

US films are by genre and chronologically within.
Foreign films by country and chronologically within.
Criterions by number.
Genre and director boxsets sit on top of the shelves - US on one, foreign on the other.

Genre and alphabetical

TV shows
Action, Sci-fi, Horror
Comedy
Drama
Family/Animation
Disney
HD/BD

When I'm looking for something to watch, it's generally a genre I'm looking for so it makes it easy to browse.

I've always had mine alphabeticly (Movies, then TV), but now I'm thinking about re-sorting it by genre (maybe keeping TV alpha).

When I feel like a movie I tend to want a specific genre, this would make it easier.

I might just take one of my days off to do a complete change. Since I am anal about having my DVDSpot ordered exactly like it is on the shelf, changing the custom titles to have it reflect shelf order might be the bigest pain in the ass.

DVD:
By Studio, chronological, except sequels which are grouped together.

TV DVD:
Alphabetical.

I used to alphabetize my DVDs and split by TV and movies. Slowly I have been adding categories such as Pixar, Disney, Miyazaki, boxsets and oddly shaped packaging

I guess it's personal preference, but if you look them up on www.dvdempire.com, they have genre tags towards the bottom. That might help you out.
