Video, music, and book shops, all for the same reason: I can only see one or two rows with any comparative ease and find the rest extremely difficult to read. FAR is obsessive with movies and will sprawl out on the floor to read the bottom shelf and pull out every single case so she can read what it is, but that's not so much for me. If I go in with a clear idea of what I want to see, then I'm alright, but casually browsing isn't too much fun. Yet from experience with doing that in bookshops (where I'll sometimes just deal, due to my love of books), that's how you stumble across half of the interesting stuff in the first place ...
Oh, okay. That makes a lot of sense then. If you want any suggestions, you know you could ask us here or go to IMDb.com to check shit out. That could make things a little bit easier.

OK, so I'm really just cranking The Verve's Come On and I thought I should share Richard Ashcroft's lyrics with you.

They're not though. There's still that fantastic quality attached to it, no matter how realistic it tries to be. Nolan's Batman series is the closest it's been, I think, but there's still that detachment from reality that makes it enjoyable, for me at least.

Some docu-drama that doesn't get something right, or is complete Hollywood bastardization, like Crash or American Gangster, pisses me off, but that's about it.

I haven't been in a video store in years. Since they actually had videos, I think. Netflix still makes money off of me, though, because I'll go through periods where I watch lots of movies, then I'll keep the same two for months.

Yeah, I've thought about it. Some of the movies you guys have spoken about sound like they'd be pretty interesting.

I'm still not used to the idea of video stores not having videos. It was a bit of a mindfuck in the US in 2005 walking into stores that just had DVDs, though I think by now most places here are now just DVDs too.

Up until 2004, I would make a point of every year going to the video store and renting The Great Escape to watch on my birthday. I couldn't find a video copy to buy, and I didn't have access to a DVD player at home until late 2003. Didn't have my own stand-alone DVD player until 2007! I like my video player.

Truthfully, I probably wouldn't have a DVD player now, except that my last boyfriend bought me one as a Valentine's Day gift awhile back.

Yeah, my stand-alone player was a Christmas present. I've been able to play DVDs on my computer since late 2003, and also from that point to late 2006, I lived with first my mother's partner and then my flatmate at UQ and they both had stand-alone players I could borrow, but that wasn't as appealling as getting a video and putting it on the TV in my room.

By late 2006, though, the wear and tear of videos had become enough that upgrading to DVDs seemed to be a worthwhile investment and one of my relatives said they'd give me one for my birthday in January 2007. Now I just want UABRS on DVD since that's the one video I've killed the most, to the point that 11OTT barely plays.

Zoo TV Sydney was the video I missed the most after my VCR died a few years ago. Now that it's out on DVD, I still don't think I've watched the whole thing

I could not imagine not having a DVD player. Movies are just too near and dear to me. It would be like not having books or music, for me.

Yeah, Ax, if you ever get the itch, there is a good core group of ZS posters that really love film. We do not always agree, which is good, but between the group of us, we can recommend some great stuff.

I've, uh, never owned a legal copy of ZooTV Sydney.

... got an unedited DVD though ...

Good times. He was a cool bloke.
that's not the only interferencer there

Hey, Khan.

I love having a VHS/DVD combo drive, for obvious reasons. When I move out and get an HDTV, I'll try and get a Blu Ray player, too.
