James’s DVD Collection

James / March 21st, 2011

James and Mike take a quick look at some DVDs


  • March 21, 2011 at 3:11 am

    That Pee Wee box set looks awesome!

      How much does the Alfred hitchcock set cost?

    I don’t think it has all the Hammer films, but i found this big Hammer film box set a while ago on Play.com: http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/1111794/The-Hammer-Collection-Box-Set/Product.html?searchtype=allproducts&searchsource=0&searchstring=hammer+horror&urlrefer=search

    I have been thinking about buying it myself.

    March 21, 2011 at 3:39 am

    No X-Files, Millennium or Lone Gunmen? :O
    I Just love my X-Files dvd-box 🙂
    But you have a great collection! 🙂

  • EliteDeath

    March 21, 2011 at 3:39 am

    I noticed throughout the years that you must not be a huge Clint Eastwood fan. You had a few of his movies in your top 30 movies list, but outside of that you never really mention him. I know you’re more of a horror movie guy, but how do you like Eastwood?

  • Cowboy

    March 21, 2011 at 3:44 am

    I hoped you would make this one!
    Wow, it kinda sucks to have to replace the VHS with DVD, especially now that BlueRay’s taking over.

  • rangerpk531

    March 21, 2011 at 3:55 am

    i noticed the TMNT 3 Vhs on the shelf lol. nice movie collection.

    • Chris Winters

      July 19, 2014 at 9:35 pm

      we do not speak of that film

  • March 21, 2011 at 3:58 am

    Man that was GREAT..its like 32 minutes of cocaine at 4 in the morning. Do more of these James! Lots more! and thank you so much for all your time and work in recording and editing these for us. Good night.

  • theduder27

    March 21, 2011 at 4:39 am

    awesome collection you have james, loved every minute of it. also i would rly love to see that fucked up horror trailers, maybe you could post that sometime?

  • March 21, 2011 at 4:53 am

    I found that the best army of darkness dvd is the screwhead edition

  • March 21, 2011 at 4:57 am

    James, if you want the ultimate Army of Darkness DVD (I guess until the Book of the Dead Edition someday is released), then you should check out the 2-disc UK-version, which has both the US theatrical version and the Director’s Cut. Both discs have a bunch of extra features (the original version has the original ending, a trailer and a featurette+, and the DC-disc has the audio commentary and some deleted scenes+).

    The cover ALSO has “Evil Dead 3” with a smaller font right above the main title, so it would give you a good reason to put it with the rest of the movies. 🙂

  • dcase

    March 21, 2011 at 5:18 am

    This video was cool, James — makes me want to watch movies from certain genre and series that I never really considered before (e.g. the Hammer films).

  • opiuyt

    March 21, 2011 at 5:31 am

    Great video James!! gotta love collection videos

  • Griff

    March 21, 2011 at 5:33 am

    I don’t know why, but I could watch stuff like this all day, I find it fascinating

    you should just one day give a whole tour of your house James!

  • March 21, 2011 at 5:38 am

    I love the Big 4 dvd. Great value for 4 full sets from awesome bands.

  • March 21, 2011 at 5:57 am

    why is there a beer bottle in the VHS section at the end? 😀
    i thought the shelves were for VHS and not beer haah
    anyway nice collection, but a bit messy like you said.

  • M3n747

    March 21, 2011 at 6:10 am

    That’s what I call an impressive collection!

  • xdeathknightx

    March 21, 2011 at 6:21 am

    Army of Darkness it is pretty hard to get the best dvd. I have one with good quality but a number of scenes are missing. It does have the regular ending. So need to find a better one as well.

    And I believe Hammer Studios is back up to bring out boxsets, so there is some hope they’ll release a big ultimate collection.

    Day of the Dead is great, but I must say I like Dawn the best. Although, as you said all of the original trilogy is great. Land of the dead is okay, Diary of the dead was okay, survival of the dead was a bit meh to me.

    And James you know that when you get the Star Trek dvd’s you’ll still keep the vhs versions 😉

    And Star Trek TNG is an awesome series.

    My DVD collection just pales in comparison. We used to have a crap ton of VHS though and then DVDs came out

    March 21, 2011 at 8:48 am

    Is that a wedding ring I see, James? If so, has your wife ever wanted to be in one of your AVGN videos (or any other videos)?

  • ben05

    March 21, 2011 at 9:01 am

    James I don’t know if you have the Movie called The House That Dripped Blood. It is a horror movie that came out in the 1970’s it has Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing in it. I found it at the flea market over the weekend.

  • JimmyDash32

    March 21, 2011 at 9:02 am

    I like videos like this. It was fun to watch to see what you have. I also would liketo get rid of my VHS into DVD but so many I own are so low on the radar I bet they will never be released on DVD. for instance Collison Course with Jay Leno and Pat Morita

  • swedish

    March 21, 2011 at 10:13 am

    i watched this video before the folks on youtube did! 😀

  • Keileen

    March 21, 2011 at 10:31 am

    I actually have the complete box set of Alfred Hitchcock’s work. It’s distributed by Universal Pictures Nordic, so I don’t know if it’s possible to get a hold of it in America, but at least it exists 🙂

    Otherwise, I must say that I admire your DVD Collection, it’s really, really impressive !

  • Osubosu

    March 21, 2011 at 10:32 am

    Cool videos you got there xD

  • dropofahat

    March 21, 2011 at 10:45 am

    I definitely saw one of the DVD’s my son and I gave to James (at an appearance in New Jersey). It was “Quartermass and the Pit”, a Hammer movie – although it wasn’t with the other Hammer movies, it’s in Sci-Fi, all the way to the left of the Star Trek Movies.

    And I’m pretty sure I saw another DVD I gave him, “The Return of Captain Invincible”, a musical superhero comedy spoof starring Alan Arkin and, as the villain, the great Christopher Lee (yup, he sings) – with songs by Rocky Horror’s Richard O’Brien.

    It was in his “intending to watch” pile – I’m pretty sure he’ll enjoy how weird it is, and who knows, maybe he’ll do a review of it someday!

  • callmeRaskolnikov

    March 21, 2011 at 11:15 am

    hey james, i just realized that i’ve never heard you mention the movie altered states. i thought perhaps it might pop up in the monster madness stuff or in your dvd collection.

    i know you get a lot of people telling you what you should watch, but please give this movie a shot if you haven’t seen it. i know it’s up your alley.

    a cool video, i enjoyed both these movie collection videos and i thought i had a lot of dvds : )

    keep it up guys

  • Ghostie

    March 21, 2011 at 11:43 am

    Dude, Never get rid of your vhs tapes ,they’re rare now, kinda like nintendo games,or 16 mm tapes,vhs is gonna be real cool to talk about in like 5- 10 years.just dont do it ,you’ll regret it,and if after some time you still wanna get rid of them,then at least you waited .

  • March 21, 2011 at 11:54 am

    you own the the golem but i thort that was a lost film? in fact it was in your top 10 lost films?

  • dropofahat

    March 21, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    @ thedeathmetalgamer:

    The “Golem” that is on DVD is actually the third in a trilogy, although it’s a prequel. The first two are “lost” (although a few scenes from the second seem to exist, James played clips of them).

  • Filmmassacre

    March 21, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    i’l comment a real comment after i’ve seen it but i’ll always wnated to see this video james so thank you so much!
    i’ve been waiting for like 3 years xD
    thank you once again =)

  • galientdomo

    March 21, 2011 at 1:00 pm

    Been waiting for this one for a long time. 🙂

  • Filmmassacre

    March 21, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    little disapointed (maybe you didn’t show it to us) that you didn’t have stan and ollie movies or Chaplin for that matter….
    oh well we all have diffrent taste in movies =)
    fun to watch i’ll re-watch it again tommorow

  • rossbosstx

    March 21, 2011 at 1:19 pm

    hell yes at 18:34 I saw the redneck zombies dvd I gave james at the first sgc. I allways wondered if he forgot it or took it home with him. .thanks james for letting me see that dvd one last time.now that made my day.

  • Pedofinder

    March 21, 2011 at 1:56 pm

    why do you always think these video’s are boring or something, its realy entertaining James, keep it up;)

  • Megadeth1

    March 21, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    Nice video James! I’m liking all these videos your putting out for us!

  • RyuKitsune

    March 21, 2011 at 2:36 pm

    Yeahhhhhh! How I Met Your Mother!! Great TV show. This is a beastly collection of DVDs and VHS tapes. Kinda sucks about those Star Trek: The Next Generation DVDs. I’d be pissed if some didn’t work. Anyway, maybe in a year you could do an update. A simple picture would even be good enough =D. *high five*

  • Liam Gauci

    March 21, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    thanks for this James (and for Mike’s vid), always wanted to know how my collection compares to yours! I’m still far behind unforts, just have 300 or so movies myself. I’m trying to expand it but I’m out of space, piling DVDs up atm lol

  • Liam Gauci

    March 21, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    I organise them by genre too btw and some actors like Karloff and Lugosi have their own sections.

  • Liam Gauci

    March 21, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Thanks for the info re: Dr. Caligari, I’ve been looking for suggestions as regards the best version for ages! I have the version released by Dark Vision which is balls. The picture quality is ok but its runtime is really short (52 mins!), surely a butchered version!

    Does your version of Super Inframan have audio problems? There’s a short section in it where the Queen speaks (English track) where the audio dips and goes up for a couple of minutes. Don’t know if it’s just my version that is defective but it seems more like a recording issue. Can’t refer you to the exact time unforts… can’t rem when damn it…

  • Srceodizno

    March 21, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Was that an ACDC Monelith from 2001 A Space Oddessy. I bet people piss off James alot when they ask him questions like “How many you got?” or “Why don’t you count them?”. Trust me someone said that to me and it took me like 3 days to count my movies. It’s like counting sand………

  • March 21, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    Fun watch. I think i noticed a few SNES games as well as a rolling rock or two toward the end when you were looking at some of your basement VHS’s, looks like the nerds been through there! haha. I’m glad you said something about Coven, almost shit my pants when i saw you had one of the original 3000 copies.

  • DarkNeonRain

    March 21, 2011 at 3:13 pm

    Great video James. Really cool to see all these movies that you have. I really would like to see a movie review of Robin hood men in tights and all the Mel brooks films. men in tights is awesome parody and one of my all time favorites.

  • acquiesce67

    March 21, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    Monsters, Inc. next to the Super Mario Bros. Super Show, I love that film.

  • March 21, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    this is an awesome collection, but one thing kept catching my eye as i was watching this.

    James was wearing a ring.

    is he engaged/married?

    way to go Nerd, if he is.

  • Kes

    March 21, 2011 at 3:40 pm

    I wish I could find more Harryhausen box sets

  • March 21, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    Nice collection, James. Here is a suggestion to you on your movie collection. Separate them into Beta, VHS, Laser Disc, DVD, HD DVD, & Blue Ray DVD (and any other formats you have). Once you’ve done that, place them on the shelves by director. You make films, you love certain directors, so it is only fitting (and I think easiest for you) to set movies together by director. The only ones you might have issue with is sequels, particularly because most sequels are done by different directors (especially horror movies) but that shouldn’t be too hard. Just set off a special section for sequels. I think it would be much easier to set movie sections off by directors then genres because genres can be confusing when you got multiple genres of film in one single movie. Hopefully my suggestion helps you out there.

    I hope you could show us the shitty trailer VHS that you made.

  • March 21, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    I don’t know why but I always enjoy videos of Mike and you nerding out. Going through movie collections, watching film reels, talking about movies or video games. I love that kind of stuff.

  • March 21, 2011 at 4:03 pm

    Can I borrow “Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!?” I’ve never seen it and never been able to find it anywhere.
    — —
    I’m glad you pointed out the copy of “Coven.” I saw it there and I was yelling at the screen for you to talk about it!
    — —
    These videos are great. It’s interesting to see how your fucked up method of organization compares to my own (not to mention seeing even more of your film influences). Well done.

  • Shikinanaya100

    March 21, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    So everyone wants to know. When is *AVN coming? (*Angry video nerd.)
    Other then that, may I take some of those videos…Its hard finding good moives and such now a days. But I should not ask for your stuff. Sorry thats wrong of me. But, let me know something, have fans ever just knocked on your door? I have been wondering that for a while.

  • CrimsonFireCF

    March 21, 2011 at 4:10 pm

    AVGN you have awesome taste in music! Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, AND Pantera! I got the Big Four DVD too, I saw it in theaters back in july. If you like the Big Four DVD you should get the Megadeth Rust In Piece 20th anniversary DVD, its really good. I just got to ask what other metal bands do you like?!

  • March 21, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    Awesome video James! I love these “behind the scenes” sort of videos just seeing the different things you like aside from video games. They are fun.

    BTW you and Mike must have spent a SHITLOAD of money on your DVD/movie collections.

  • March 21, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    thats pretty good james but you gotta check out my buddy Vince collection they once printed an article about his video collection

    Black Sabbath, Dio, Heaven & Hell, Judas Priest.. awesome.

  • Auximinus

    March 21, 2011 at 4:47 pm

    Hey, James. Are you into Doctor Who at all? New or Classic series? Seems like something you’d like, but I’ve never heard you mention it.

  • Deeke

    March 21, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Its awesome to see that a respected icon like AVGN has a great taste in movies; it’s really fun to have something in common with James since he’s entertained us for so many years.

  • Auximinus

    March 21, 2011 at 4:58 pm

    Also, in regards to the Super Mario Bros. cartoon DVD not having the live action bumpers, could that have been so they did have to pay royalties to the actors that starred in those segments? Just a thought. I’m not sure how that whole thing works.

  • tylerdurden389

    March 21, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    I loved watching this because in all honesty, I like hearing what James himself has to say about movies and tv shows much more than than videogames. The only thing I haven’t heard James comment on is fan edits. He’ll talk about bootlegs though, and to me it’s sorta the same thing.

  • Jel-K

  • quicksilverbalt

    March 21, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    I saw EEGAH! somewhere in that collection and they actually aired that movie a few weeks ago on some Elvira Late Saturday movie night either way it was just terrible and one of the cast looked like a teenage Dennis the Menace.

    Were those super Nintendo games in the back considered not worthy of you’re video game collection? Or possibly doubles?

  • Bassbait

    March 21, 2011 at 6:07 pm


    Secondly, I think you ought to review a Kubrick film next. You’re obviously a fan, and I’m getting tired of these schlock films you review. I want to see you review a more seriously well made film.

  • officialjab

    March 21, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    I’d love to see a video that has several brief reviews/comments on the newer films you have like Inception. It’s cool seeing what other people think of newer things, particularly celebrities.

    That’s right, you’re a celebrity.

  • TomM

    March 21, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    Nice video, James. Love when Mike and you talk about your collections. It’s really cool to see what you guys are into rather than shitty video games. Utterly amazed by both of your collections.

    March 21, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    (As always) Great video…very interesting.
    When you started to discuss your music DVDs, I found myself trying to see beyond what the camera saw. I know you’re a huge White/Rob Zombie fan (me too). & mad props on liking Sabbath & Priest. No Iron Maiden?
    Also, I noticed American Beauty in your misc. section. Please review that one! Whenever I list my own personal favorite movies, it ranks at #5.
    Thanks to your reviews, you got me into Metal Gear Solid, Tales From The Crypt, & The Twilight Zone in 2010.

  • March 21, 2011 at 7:20 pm

  • March 21, 2011 at 8:26 pm

  • Shrk782

    March 21, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    I noticed you have all 3 Carnosaur movies on DVD. You should definitely comment on those films in a review or something since those are bizzare movies with the funniest special effects

  • z_thompson

  • March 21, 2011 at 8:53 pm


    And I thought MY VHS/DVD/Blu-ray collection was huge, lol!

  • Hydrassas

    March 21, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    That is quite an amazing collection! If you want to try and phase out your VHS collection why not try selling them on eBay or somewhere like that under a pseudonym attached to a P.O. box? I suggested a pseudonym because if people knew it was you then you’d probably get swamped by your fans. With the money you got from that you could fund your transition and the VHS tapes would likely end up in the hands of collectors.

  • March 21, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    That is so awesome that you have Coven. When I saw it I laughed my ass off hoping you would comment on it.
    I was laughing about those Wu-Tang Kung Fu tapes. I was a fan of Wu-Tang and I didn’t even know those existed. Great collection James!

  • ASC1980

    March 21, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    I also agree with you on Drunken Wu Tang.

  • Elvenking

    March 22, 2011 at 2:48 am

    How come you never talk about Dario Argento, or Lucio Fulci??? For a person who so loves horror…i would figure you enjoy calssics like Phenomena, Susperia, City of the Liveing Dead…etc. Doth thee?

  • angelspawn77

    March 22, 2011 at 4:42 am

    Donkey Kong music at the beginning and end ftw! At the part where you were looking at the Mothra tape and you said “who released this?” I half expected it to be LJN, lol! It’s just become so common from watching nerd videos that anything shitty or weird would belong to LJN.
    I hope you took breaks while filming that, so much stuff to go through, was Mike not available to help? Must have taken a long time to film all of that, I hadn’t realized the video was so long until I exited full screen and saw it was over 30 min.
    Keep up the great work James, I always enjoy any kind of videos from you guys. Oh and on a side note, I had no idea there even existed “Are you afraid of the dark” collection, I must look those up!

  • RocketeerRaccoon

    HAHA!!! Great Collections James!! Hope u liked the movie “The Fugitive” i sent u a while back , one of my favo movies of all time! Big surprise to see that u still have it! ( 9:15 ) 🙂

  • TheAgeingYoungRebel

    March 22, 2011 at 7:40 am

    I’m not sure if this was ever released in the US. But if your looking for a hammer collection try this one:

    Its really cheap at the moment. I thought that they’d also released a complete collection, but I might be mistaken. Also, have you seen the hammer horror tv show? I think you’d like it.

    No Spirited Away? No Princess Mononoke? No Akira? How can you not have any Anime at all? I hope you have at least seen some of the better stuff. If you completely dismiss anime as sucking I’ll track you down and reenact Misery on your ass. I’ll force you to watch Anime until Matei comes and rescues you. That ass didn’t have any Anime either! You freaking guys lol. Maybe I’ll go buy a few good ones and mail them to you turkeys.

    This was awesome James! Thanks for taking the time to make this and share your collection:-) I wanted you to know too that after your Godzilla a thon series you got me and my husband onto Godzilla! We went out and bought the ones you recommended and loved them. I can imagine how hard it was to find those years ago…you mentioned you were a fan as a kid and had to catch them on TV. I grew up in the 80’s (I’ll be 31 in June) so I remember all to well what a pain in the ass it was to watch certain shows. Or you’d see something awesome on TV but it was just luck if a friggin store carried it! So much easier to find stuff nowadays. But anyway, it was awesome of you to share this video and endure the hand pain (I hope you’re ok!). You’re the best! Take care:-)

    Your Star Trek TNG 20th anniversary is a different version. I bought when it first came out. The discs where in separate green holders. They didn’t overlap, like the ones you have. Maybe that’s why they don’t work right.

    James & Mike, your DVD/VHS collection is absolutely amazing. It looks like you and I have a few things in common. I am also a movie buff guy, a huge fan of retro movies, sitcom TV shows, cartoons, and video games as well.

    Also, here’s a funny clip for gigs/laughter:

    there is a seinfeld box set with all 12 seasons and the coffee table book which has breif descriptions and qoutes from the episodes its pretty cool and i go it for 50 bucks i think, its like black and a gold seinfeld logo

    I noticed neither of you guys own Cats Don’t Dance, one of the underrated greats in 90’s animation. The DVD is pretty bare-bones but it’s a great movie, I highly recommend it.

  • March 22, 2011 at 8:59 pm

    Hello James my friends and I are makeing a movie called A Rope of Sand and were wondering if you can rate it when we finish, our YouTube is wagwanwiththeworld and right now we have only got a few videosthat were school projects (meaning we did not put alot of work into them) but we have been working on this one since October of last year, so if you can rate our movie you can reach me at my email

  • March 22, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    Wow. I would be amazed if you ever had a garage sale. I see lots of things I would love to nab.
    You should make a video about your kitties!

  • March 22, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    James, here’s your next mission. Rip all your DVDs and stick them on a 4TB RAID system! That’s what I’ve been doing for some unknown reason 😛

  • SpeedyEric

    March 22, 2011 at 10:22 pm

    I don’t organize my films in either alphabetical order of genre, but by release date, and if I have a sequel/prequel to that film, I put them together. Also, I separate the TV shows from the movies. So far, I have over 200 DVDs in my collection; it’s not very big, but it is the biggest for my family.

    I also enjoy Peter Jackson’s King Kong. I even have it on DVD, and I still yet need to get the original film on 2-disc DVD, because you recommend it.

    I also have a problem with movies being distributed by different companies. For example, I have all the Halloween films with the exception of the 2nd and 3rd films, because they were released by Universal.

    Phelous of TGWTG did a review on the 30th anniversary edition of NotLD, and it IS to be avoided.

    i heard of “From Star Wars to Jedi,” but I never saw it.

    I also still have my VHS copy of “The Phantom Menace,” because I’m a big Star Wars fan. BTW, James, you and Mike should be ashamed of yourselves for planning on destroying it, because the entire Star Wars Saga is kickass.

    No “Planet of the Apes” set? I thought that would have been a science fiction saga you would have liked. You would certainly appreciate the crazy make up they had to do in those films. Still impressive today. I highly recommend them, James.

    Oh my god, The Halloween Tree! I remember that! This is an awesome collection, but it doesn’t inspire me to collect DVD’s as much as Mike’s collection does. Maybe because your collection’s just so disorganised xD

    I hate to be pedantic, but these “Genres” aren’t really organized very well. Animation is not a genre, it’s a medium. Alfred Hitchcock is suspense, not horror or thriller. The pack that you help up in the misc. section had the genre right on it! It said “family” on the top. Durr

    You mentioned ‘Shaun of The Dead’ amazing film (didn’t think it would be big in the USA?)

    If you liked ‘Shaun of The Dead’ PLEASE for your own viewing pleasure do get ‘SPACED’ series 1 and 2 (there will never be a 3rd series) DO WATCH these! Espicially if you HATE ‘Phantom Menace’ – LOL!

    I like how our library is now filing modern mature animation (mostly anime), within the traditional live action sci-fi, comedy, horror, etc. sections.

    I wish they would release the Star Trek series on Blu Ray like a season per disc, if possible.

    March 28, 2011 at 5:53 pm

    An unedited version would probably go for like 3 hours! They said on Mike’s one they had been filming for like an hour and a half and James’ collection seems to be like 3x bigger PLUS he didn’t have somebody filming for him… so it would go forever!

  • HaveYouSeenThisBoy

    Filmmaker3000 I’m pretty sure the music featured in this video is from Donkey Kong Country for SNES, He’s used music from this game for other videos – Including WinterGames. Great collection James, would like to see the VHS you made of the horror trailers.

  • OdieMikes

    March 28, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    @ filmmacker3000 It’s Donkey Kong Country for the SNES. And one quick question for James, Mike, or anyone really: Have you ever seen a really weird movie called Halloween Scream? I rented it on VHS about 8 years ago from this independent video rental place near me. It’s a bunch of shitty 3D models that look like they’re from the original Virtua Fighter, but it’s all Halloween themed. I felt like I was tripping on acid when I watched it because it’s just crazy shit at random intervals, with a sort of host watching it on his tv, but he’s a skeleton named Skully… Someone else please have heard of this or I’ll have to think I was hallucinating that night for the rest of my life.

  • March 28, 2011 at 8:51 pm

    Hey James. Actually there IS a collection of all Hammer Movies, it’s called “The Ultimate Hammer Collection”, I’ve seen recently in one of the polish on-line shops (I’m from Poland) which imports its products from abroad, so I think this should be perfectly available in the US.

    The best edition of AOD is overseas (MGM R3 release) but it also doesn’t have S Mart as an optional ending. There really is such a huge issue with the proper cut of Army of Darkness and it’s sad that despite its over 60+ releases on several formats worldwide, there still isn’t a proper release.

    Why does James never seem to talk about Kurosawa movies? I find it unlikely that they have somehow slipped his Radar, considering he’s a film student. I know a lot of people who wont watch subtitle movies, but James is way into Godzilla and martial arts movies, so that can’t be the case either… Perplexing…

    But then, you don’t get the video store feel (Which I understand, it’s awesome.)

    There’s programs like “All My Movies” which can make it like your own personal Netflix, but if you have the space/resources for the “Video Store feel” more power to you. I wish I could.

    It’s sad the video store feel will soon be thing of the past (for most people)
