What's On Your DVD Shelf?

We just added to our DVD collection today with the Incredibles. We say we purchased this for Liam but really it's one of Dave's favorite movies. Isn't it obvious why? He's so much like Mr. Incredible and I'm so much like Elastigirl!

Our DVD collection is growing. I'm a little discriminating in our purchasing, buying movies I think will last the test of time. What are the movies you think are worth purchasing? If I had my druthers our library would be much larger, but I guess I don't have many druthers or many bucks for such an expense. So what do these title reveal about us?

So here's our dvd library
Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Harry Potter: the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter: the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter: the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter: the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix
Casino Royale (the newest James Bond)
Hunt for Red October
Bourne Supremacy
Bourne Ultimatum
Bourne Identity
School of Rock
Bionicle 2
Bionicle 3
Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
the Passion
Pirates of the Caribbean 1
Pirates of the Caribbean 2
Pirates of the Caribbean 3
Finding Forrester
Babette's Feast
Remember the Titans
Batman Begins
Freaky Friday
The Firm
2 Lizzie McGuire's from the TV show
Star Wars 1
Star Wars 2
Star Wars 3
Star Wars 4
Sesame Street: Counting
Sesame Street: Colors

P.S. My computer won't open so that means a few things: 1) I probably won't be blogging too much in the future - I'm on Dave's computer right now; 2) My house will be a little cleaner; 3) My kids will have more of my attention; 4) I will get more reading done, like my Bill Bryson book that's currently frying my brain!

I Was Just Thinking,
It would be a shame if you weren't blogging much. I so much enjoy reading your blog.
Its really fun to read what is in your DVD library. I wonder if it will change some after all of your children grow up and leave home. I find myself trying to keep a few ones that the grandkids like but knowing their parents already have some we mostly concentrate on what we like.

The grands like to buy movies for our little one. She has a huge library all to herself. In fact, I think hers is larger than ours. Some of my favorite movies though are still on the old VHS, Wallace and Grommit and The Swiss Family Robinson.
I really enjoy using Netflix, then we can watch without owning and she learns about borrowing :)

My 'stand the test of time' movie collection has not stood... it's on VHS! Ditto with many of my favorite 'albums,' for similar reasons... alas, the world spins on even if my hi-fi and vcr are no good :-).

Ah, videos. I have Pride and Prejudice on video and have contemplated buying the dvds. I wonder how much longer until some other format is introduced and our dvds become obsolete.

One of my greatest regrets in life (and if this is my greatest than I'm doing pretty good) was selling my vinyl records. I was so tired of carting them around, moving so frequently I sold them when we were moving back to the States from Canada. I still grieve!

We use netflix a lot.

I do hope to keep blogging, Viola. Although sometimes I think my range of topics is coming to an end.

Hi, I Was Just Thinking!

I have to say, I think you have a good movie collection so far. (I'm a collector, too...only it borders slightly on addiction...)

I found your blog through a post you made on "Shuck and Jive" and I just wanted to say thank you for sticking up for us (MPC) and not jumping in with some of the hurtful comments that were going around on that site. It's appreciated. :)

What about The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi?

We have those on VHS but our vcr broke months ago so no more videos for us!
