I still have a bunch of DVDs I'll probably never bother upgrading. Don't @ me.

Same. I occasionally will upgrade if it's a movie I really love, but I still own hundreds of DVDs and honestly most look perfectly fine to me. Sure a blu-ray would be better, but do I really need Ghoulies 2 in HD?

My dad bought us a DVD player in 1999 or so and the first movie I remember owning was The Matrix, which looked so awesome to me at the time. We didn't really own many movies at that point, just rented/Netflix, it wasn't until blu-ray came out that I started collecting physical media.

I couldn't tell you what my first blu-ray was, possibly The Searchers or Kingdom of Heaven. Those were among the first ~10 or so I bought anyway.

I would consider the halfway package if there was a way to just get their horror movie releases, I have zero interest in all the porn poo poo

thanks for the heads up, I'll probably pick up a few that I'm missing. anyone have any recommendations from their catalog? I already have Night Train to Terror, Christmas Evil, Jack Frost, Nightmare Sisters, and Hobgoblins. I've heard Liquid Sky is cool, might get that

I figured I would just file it under A but the individual films could be sorted. Iíll proly go w the former but wanted to know how people handle situations like these.

take the individual films and mix them in with your other movies alphabetically, then throw away the outer box

or just have a separate section of your shelf for box sets, that's what I do

The best horror anthologies were made in the 60s and 70s imo. Tales of Terror, Twice Told Tales, Black Sabbath, Kwaidan, Vault of Horror, Tales From the Crypt, Torture Garden, and Asylum are all worth watching.

Luckily, independent bookstores are actually on the rise. I'm admittedly spoiled in a big city, but I'd never step foot in one of the big chains these days—they're just so, so much better. Hopefully if they do close in your area, a mom and pop shop will crop up to fill the void.

There are a couple used bookstores in my city, but no independent ones that sell new books. Every time I go to New York it's like being a kid in a candy store. I wouldn't buy much at B&N outside of their Criterion sales otherwise, but I shop there anyway because I dislike them less than I dislike Amazon.

The only extras I make a point of watching are Criterion ones, usually. If I have time after watching a film I sometimes go through some extras, especially if they are short, but usually after watching a 2 hour movie I don't want to sit and watch another couple hours of extra features. I just watched Return of the Living Dead III the other day and there are several 30 minute extras, who has time for that?

My problem with commentaries is if I haven't seen the movie in a while, I just want to watch the movie without commentary. And if I've seen it recently, I don't want to watch it again. So I really only watch commentaries on my favorite movies that I'm already very familiar with.

yeah same, I love the idea of commentary tracks but I own a shitload of movies and have probably listened to the commentaries on a handful of them. Also sometimes I'll start the commentary but if I get 15 minutes in and it's boring I'll stop and turn it off.

I'm sure this has come up previously in this thread, but what kind of shelves do you guys use for your collection? I have generic media shelves from Target that are fine but I'm running out of room, and I have to move everything off of them soon anyway so it's a good time to upgrade to something better/nicer.

I am heading to Texas Frightmare this weekend and hoping to hit up the Vinegar Syndrome booth and Severin booth.

I own 3 VS discs (Raw Force, The Undertaker, Slaughterhouse) and I like 2 of them (RF, Undertaker) what would people recommend I check out?

What are the Severin releases to check out?

For VS, I enjoyed Mausoleum, Def by Temptation, Jack Frost, Christmas Evil, and Deathrow Gameshow

Severin's got a lot of really great stuff, my favorites are The Changeling, All the Colors of the Dark, and Burial Ground (ok it's kind of bad but so bafflingly weird it's worth seeing). The Devil's Rain is a neat movie but I haven't seen their release of it... Psychomania is cool but DVD-only I believe.

He shot it in 1.33:1 but composed it for 1.66:1, which was his intended ratio - I guess he did that with most of his later films, the idea being that he knew a full screen/TV version was going to happen so he wanted to keep it in mind when filming.

actually I might be wrong, he intended it widescreen for theaters but according to Wikipedia - "In accordance with stipulations contained in Kubrick's will, DVD releases show the film in open matte "

So, I dunno. I prefer the look of the bluray at least.
