A and A's Movie A Day

Watching movies until we run out.

A Note about VHS (And The Norman Conquests)

We own a lot of DVDs. This much is obvious. We’re 140+ movies in and have well over 300 still to go. But you see, we own a lot of movies on VHS too. Movies we legitimately purchased or were given or swiped from my parents. And many of these things are not available on DVD at all or not available in the US. Sure, for some of them we could find a Region 2 copy and we could get ourselves a DVD player that would let us play them, but that seems silly when we have copies already.

Of course, if The Box of Delights ever comes out on DVD in the US I will so snap that right up.

Anyhow, the point I’m trying to make is that we’re going to be going through our VHS collection and incorporating the professional copies of full length movies into the list of things for the project. And that means we’re going to get to review The Norman Conquests for the project. And that makes me super excited. It’s a series of three movies, each of which takes place over the same weekend at the same house with the same cast and the same plot, but in three different settings. The first is all in the dining room, the second in the living room and the third in the garden, and each explains a little more of what’s going on.

I’m really looking forward to this.
