dude, OPs collection kicks ass.

i mean, i would never buy an Alivn & the chipmunks DVD but there are lots of great titles to offset the ones i don't like


anyone who owns Better Off Dead is OK with me

Bad Taste is great
You have the balls to own Big Top Pee Wee and not the original.
(I love both of them)
The Cable Guy! again, i can be friends w/anyone who likes this movie
Clockwork Orange, same thing
lots of Chappelle = A+
Romero is nicely represented
Dr Giggles AND Exorcist

i could go on and on

i have to update my dvdspot page and then i'll post mine

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?
somewhat...i'm 34 and have been a movie fan pretty much my entire life but with my wife in school i'm currently the only one bringing in any income and with a 2 yr old leaves very little extra money for outside purchases. My focus right now are on movies i enjoy which is why i used the word "collecting" very loosely but i dream of the day of having my own theater and really starting to pick up foreign/classic films that i've missed out on

thanks

Hope you enjoyed your trip, Yakuza.

You've got several Hollywood hits that I found to be a bore, but that's okay too. All around excellent.
Thanks for the comments. The anime titles are a recent addition; I don't really like much in the way of animation, traditional or anime, but I enjoy the themes and stories those particular series offer. It's not an area of my collection I expect to grow much beyond what's there currently, though.

Regarding the Criterion Dreyer set, I did own it at one point but didn't appreciate it and foolishly(?) traded it away. Knowing that there are better versions of the films on DVD elsewhere, I may upgrade eventually. Part of me was happy to see that you didn't harp on the lack of "big" Criterion titles (especially Kurosawa and Godard, neither of which I am fond of) as people have in the past: "How can you have all these, but not ___?"

As for the Hollywood movies, I obviously don't know the specific ones you have in mind, but I'll preemptively mention that I am a longtime unapologetic fan of Ang Lee's Hulk, Cabin Fever and all of Shyamalan's films.

Just because I don't have the entire Criterion catalog?

I try to buy the movies I enjoy and watch the most, I do love foreign cinema and (some) classics, but honestly I haven't seen many that have made me want to purchase them

Antoine Doinel, Indiana Jones, James Bond, Sergio Leone, LOTR, Arrested Development, Batman: TAS, Monk, Simpsons, Kubrick, Kurosawa; nice. Comedy, action, tv and animation. Nicely focused. I need to pick up 36th Chamber of Shaolin.

No. He has Bad Taste because he has Bad Taste. You have bad taste because you have Beverly Hills Ninja.

Another question, do you blind buy everything that gets released by Criterion ?
My point is that every great film isn't a French art-house drama, or a Japanese love story or released by Criterion.
Just because I don't have the entire Criterion catalog?
I assume he has bad taste because he doesn't own 113 Criterions?
I don't want to open any closed wounds, and I don't want to pick on anyone in particular so I'm removing the usernames attached to these quotes, but I honestly don't understand what everyone's obsession is with Criterions. The posts above treat it like its a dirty word, and there's just as many other posts in this thread that treat it like it's a certification of greatness. I understand that they often, but not always, select good films and give them a nice treatment, but so does Kino, Masters of Cinema, Second Run, Raro Video and to lesser degrees Artificial Eye, New Yorker, BFI, Facets, Ruscico, Warner, MK2, Plexifilms, Optimum Releasing, etc, but I rarely hear anyone harp on these studios. Can someone please explain the obsession with building up and tearing down Criterion to me?
