A friend told me he never buys violent movies.
That's all I buy! Picked up another copy of Casino. Joe Pesci is too much. Some people are turned off by the profanity.
Bought Eddie Murphy's Delirious a few months ago. Too funny.

I have loved this movie for years! (Killing streets) only had it recorded off cable TV from the 90s and it wasnt in the best quality.. (SLP mode)

I was glad it was NOT COMPROMISED on VHS! (Digitally altered) and the soundtrack is ULTRA STEREO so I was quite glad!!!! (Alot of movies in the 90s started to use more and more digital crap that took away the good analogue quality )

It is EXCELLENT!!!!! (analog is beautiful)


Anyway,

Yesterday I found Star Wars 2 (1980) @ salvation army!!!! (ORIGINAL -- NOTHING DIGITAL/NO CHANGES)


Now I have 1 and 2 in thier original formats .... Now looking for Part 3

STAR WARS IS THE BEST 3 PART MOVIE EVER MADE!!

I last got the movie back to the future (1985) on VHS the other day....

It was in a bin of home made VHS tapes @ salvation army (THEY WERE NOT GONNA BE PUT UP AS THEY WERE NOT THE OFFICAL TAPES OF MOVIES (People recorded them from cable TV))

This tape was recorded 4/1/87 off analog cable (HBO) and is beautiful...... I have had the 3 parts of back to the future on their official tapes for awhile but all 3 are DIGITALLY RECORDED and look like crap to me...... I forgot about pay channels having thier own analog masters of movies in the 80s... (The only place I knew of is videodisc to get the first part IN ANALOG.. I had forgotton about pay TV services))

I am quite glad the guy let me go thru this bin...... (THEY WERE SENDING IT BACK OUT,WERENT GONNA PUT ANY UP WHICH IS SAD but in todays world you cant take a chance on someone getting porn,etc (THEY ALL SADLY CANT BE VERIFIED (Too many) ))

I got 2 excellent movies out of that bin before It was taken..... I also got THE FUGITIVE - 1993 (In SP mode) the day before also recorded off analogue cable (HBO) and this one has a very special treat @ the start of the movie! (That beautiful intro HBO used to have where they go over a city) See it below!!

I know where a couple large boxes of recorded movies are. I'll need to look over them again and see if it would be worth making an offer on the entire lot. There's also several at a pawn shop. Gotta go through those too. Interesting to see the older commercials from long ago. Last vhs i got was a week ago. Lost in Space, the One with Jet Li and classic Star Trek The Corbomite Maneuver. Found in a dumpster. Complete with boxes. I know the Salvation Army gets a lot of movies. Always check them out when i go. We have two SAs here plus a Goodwill and another local shop plus a few other places for used items

My oldest commercials are from early '82.
One car dealer asks " Why buy a left over 81, when you can buy an '82, for the same price." The cars really look old.
I wouldn't buy a VCR, until they came down in price, which was around that time.
BTW, the blank tapes were around $12.00, then.

Today I got

Bryan adams - reckless (A collection of videos from his 'RECKLESS' album))

I THINK ITS SAFE TO SAY RECKLESS IS HIS BEST ALBUM -- OH MY.......... And the last song was a surprise as it WASNT LISTED ON THE TAPE BOX AS ONE OF THE SONGS ON THE COLLECTION! ("One night love affair" -- (Played during the ending credits) OH MY....this song is in the movie 'REAL GENIUS' (1985) also and it sounds JUST AS GOOD!!! -- I am so glad this tape WAS NOT DIGITALLY COMPROMISED!!!!!!! (I had THE DOORS 'LIVE IN EUROPE' (1968) on VHS also the other day and it sounded like crap..... At the end of the tape I discovered why "Sound Mix: Digital enterprises" (Or something "Digital") I got rid of it!!

I have a doors greatest hits 2 record set.... I can hear thier stuff in 100% analogue! (Much nicer IN MY OPINION)
