Don't apologize, you don't like it that's cool. But what else don't you like?

Very close to my collection. There is a lot of overlap...and there are some good cheese films in there. I give it a B+

Edit: I saw the Killer (Criterion) on there. Very cool. Check out Branded to Kill and Tokyo Drifter. They are a little weird after the first viewing, but they are awesome hitman flicks.

zombeaner, you have a lot of DVD's. A lot of worthwhile films a little off the radar (Chopper, Millennium Mambo, Sweet Hereafter, Don't Look Now, Bamboozled (yes I said it!) come to mind. The problem is there are so many DVD's and I'd imagine at least half are total garbage (Feardotcom, Candyman, 8MM, Club Dread, Ted Bundy, it can go on). The films of the 60's and 70's you do have are mostly exploitation and blaxploitation. It could use a cleaning and more seeing what is interesting from those decades besides exploitation cinema. It has a lot of worthwhile and challenging cinema in there though including Bunuel though so it does things right.
Grade: B-/B

and the only good product of the 70's was exploitation/sleaze/horror etc.

Candyman is one of the best horror films ever made, with a haunting score composed by Phillip Glass.

Don't be so quick to dismiss exploitation films. Some of our greatest directors, like Martin Scorsese, started out making exploitation films for the drive-in market.

One of the best ever made? Well, I suppose it is in a higher class than Feardotcom and Club Dread.

I didn't dismiss exploitation films. I just commented that is mostly what he had from the decades. I guess I should have separated with a period which I will do now.

No, I don't think so. I always feel there is room for improvement in my collection. I am lacking in British films, pre-1960's and comedies.

Although this probably should have been mentioned earlier, I think a few people are missing the point of the thread. It isn't exactly a matter of what you the reviewer likes. It is how the collection is. Although in scott1598's case his collection is almost identical to mine, so I am biased there. But if other people didn't have a similar collection, then I would rate it based on what they have not what I like....that isn't fair.

More than I know what to do with. I'm an exploitation fan. I love Russ Meyer as much, or more, than Kurosawa. I think that saying half of the DVDs are trash is a bit unreasonable, many of the shittier titles are in my collection for a reason, feardotcom, for example, sort of stars Jeffrey Combs. That is reason enough to own it for me, plus it was $1.98. I also have a true crime fetish, hence all the serial killer flicks. I try to keep it varied, my main problem is that my buying keeps outpacing my viewing!

Yeah, I can't say I am that big on Kurosawa myself. I would recommend a few titles that I didn't see in there like Seconds (John Frankenheimer) and Prime Cut (Michael Ritchie). Those are very interesting films I think you'd like.

I have to agree Candyman is a solid movie i must add to my collection as well, but its not the best ever, but its still solid.

I'm back, and needless to say, I'm surprised that this thread is still going. However, since it is, I'll jump back in.

I like your collection a lot. I'd give it an A-. Your taste in anime is very focused, but all the titles are absolutely great. Your TV titles are a bit broader than my tastes would allow for, but also generally great. Great MOC and CC titles (get the Dreyer box set!). You've got several Hollywood hits that I found to be a bore, but that's okay too. All around excellent.

That's a tautology.

Overlaps is a good word for it. Your collection is either very broad in scope or all over the place, depending on how one interprets it. I'm not qualified to judge your collection since I have no idea whether titles such as Gilmore Girls, Orgazmo, Space Ghost, Spawn, Voltron, and their ilk are any good.

Thanks for the kind words.

I see some of those titles are attributable to your child, and I'm going to assume some of the others are attributable to your wife. As to the rest, I don't share your taste in wrestling or school-boy humor in the least, but you do have a few titles that aren't bad in my book. My guess from your collection is that you're a young parent without a lot of undivided time for film watching and that when you do pop something in the player you want something that will entertain your guy friends or something to see with the wife, but in neither case do you want to see films that are going to demand your undivided attention. Is that about right?

I want to put your collection in context before I judge it. Is your collection limited to what titles are available at the Guntersville, Alabama Wal-Mart on Highway 431?
