At Movies Unlimited and MovieFanFare, we love hearing about people’s personal film collections! Since the early days of Super 8 films (an era which birthed Movies Unlimited back in the 1970s) through to VHS, Betmax, Laserdisc, DVD, Blu-ray and now 4K Ultra HD, we have always been the destination of film fans. Whether it be new releases, old favorites or rare import titles, we are dedicated to bringing you the latest and greatest movies and TV shows.
Naturally, many of you reading this probably have amassed quite a home video collection over the years. For this Open Thread, we want you to sound off on your own personal collections.
What was the first movie you ever bought on video? (And, for that matter, what format was it on?) How many total titles are your collection? What are some of your favorites? What is the rarest item in your possession? Which titles have you bought in multiple formats? Which video format from across the decades is your favorite? Do you have a room dedicated to your assortment of films and TV shows that you have gotten over the years? Where can we see pictures of your collection? What is it about collecting things to watch that you find so appealing?
The above are just a mere smattering of the type of questions that hardcore collectors face on a daily basis, so consider the comments a friendly forum to discuss the wonderful world of home video collecting. And thank you for letting us be a part of your collecting journey!
