    I have over 1500 VHS and well over a 1000 DVD ,
    I don't care for horror or B movies , thrillers are OK sometimes , a little disappointed with, Alien Covenant .
    If I see a movie at a theater I like ,I will wait till I can get it on the sale table for $5. or $10 if it is particularly good.
    Some movies like Avatar just didn't come down, so I ended up paying $15. for it.
    it's nice to be able to pick through the library and check out something I haven't seen in a while. I have spare player/recorders as well.
    I was kind of hoping that they would start putting movies on fire sticks or SD cards , but I haven't seen it yet .
    Swap meets and yard sales are good resources. .50 or a dollar for most. or make a deal for the box of movies.
    I like all the, "Jurassic park "
    The Edge.
    Must love Dogs,
    star treck
    10 things I hate about you.
    Hitch hikers guide to the galaxy .
    Robo cop.
    Short circuit.

    Crap.

    Okay, well...

    V for Vendetta
    Everything to do with Babylon 5
    Batman Begins
    Boondock Saints
    Braveheart
    Eagle Eye
    Enemy of the State
    Equilibrium
    Fight Club
    Idiocracy
    Patton
    Red Dawn
    (original)
    The Matrix Trilogy
    Sons of Liberty (3 part series)
    Sucker Punch
    The Postman

    You may notice a bit of a trend. There are plenty of great movies I really like, but those are my only favorites thus far, sans one or two I didn't feel like sharing. Plus, anything with midgets or sexy female porn stars tops the list of great movies, but that kinda goes without saying. I think V for Vendetta would still be number one for me.

    A History of Violence is excellent. I give it two thumbs. Warning. There is violence. Also sex. If either of these things upsets you you should skip it. Thanks.

    A History of Violence Movie Review (2005) | Roger Ebert
    I may have to look into that one.
    Rated R for brutal violence, graphic sexuality, nudity, language and some drug use 96 minutes
    However, wife may not like me watching that!

    Being There- because I like to watch
    Key Largo- it's all about modesty and courage
    Saving Private Ryan- it's all about duty and obligation
    The Shootist- it's all about final choice
    Sleepy Hollow- it's all about ghosts chopping heads off Dutch and I have worked with Dutch enough to realize that is a viable option.

  20. 1941 with Akroyd and Belushi? Some humor, not worth paying to see unless you are a real fan. No one mentioned "Sergeant Rutledge" with Woody Strode. John Ford movie filmed in monument valley. And how about original the "Red dawn" with Ben Johnson?
