A catalog

Today I offer up a simple catalog of my DVD collection. My movie purchasing has declined now that I have no income, so there are several movies that should be on my list but aren't.

One might glean something about who I am from such a list, if one were so inclined.

Veronica: "You think you're a rebel? You're not a rebel. You're a psycho!"

If I posted my DVD list, it wouldn't be nearly this good. I mean, I don't own "Girl Next Door" or "Harold and Kumar," but there are a few that would bring me to shame.

all I wanna know is if you keep your movies in alphabetical order all the time or if you organized them just for this post.

I don't see a single Sylvester Stalone movie. This list is inferior because of it.

 
At 5:31 PM, Blogger CoachDub posited...

Nikie -- just for this list.

JV -- When armed robbers broke in to my apartment, the didn't take my computer, tv, or iPod . . . they just took my copies of Over the Top and Stop or my Mom Will Shoot.

I wouldn't take the music collection of a man with such a pitiful Stallone DVD collection either.

But at least we have both Rocky VI: What the Hell Happened To Me and Rambo IV: I Meant Something in the Reagan Years to look forward to.
Two great American heroes, returning to bring America's pride back.
Thanks, Sly.

i think ronald reagan should come back from the dead and act agian. that comeback would be less difficult to pull off than sly's...

Over the Top.

Kickass shit.

I was always a Schwarzenegger guy myself.

I mean, every (non-family) movie he's made? Brilliant.

 
At 9:57 AM, Blogger CoachDub posited...

I agree. I'll take Arnold over Sly any day. (I'll even take Kindergarten Cop.) Terminator -- brilliant. T2 - brilliant. True Lies -- genius. Total Recall -- amazing. Predator -- I ain't got time to expound.

Let's not forget who else was in Predator...

The other actor turned governor.

 
At 5:46 PM, Blogger CoachDub posited...

See how I took Jesse's famous line from Predator ("I ain't got time to bleed") and made it my own? So no, I didn't forget who else was in Predator.

But of course we use the words "actor" and "governor" quite loosely.

Rocky V = dear god this never actually happened did it?

 
At 10:08 PM, Blogger pkizzle posited...

Say what you will about Rocky, the soundtrack of the series kicks so much tail I can't even explain it.

 
At 10:37 PM, Blogger Houley posited...

Don't forget Jesse and Ahnold's other blockbuster hit, "The Running Man."

 
At 10:53 PM, Blogger P "N" K posited...

BONNNEEEEEE SAW

That was an amazing movie. Because I could just imagine like Bob Barker in some future life hosting that exact show like in Running Man.
