Last week, when I showed you my newly thrifted tea for two set, I told you how I bought a bunch of VHS tapes at the library sale. I was rather embarrassed that I`m still spending money on old technology. But, dear as you are, many of you told me how you still watch and collect VHS movies too.
Emboldened by your support, I am now sharing a look at the VHS movies that I purchased at the library. Possibly you won`t be so nice to me in the future! Above, some classics I couldn`t resist: The Party, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and On Golden Pond. I remember how that last one brought on the tears.
I got these ones for the kids, although I`ll probably join in on the watching. Beethoven (picked out by my daughter), Star Wars movies and a couple of Indiana Jones films.
Something about watching classic Christmas movies on VHS just seems right. I guess we`re more nostalgic at Christmas time. Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Carol, It`s a Wonderful Life and White Christmas.
This is my random bunch. Six Days, Seven Nights because I remember liking it. Simon Birch for the kids because A Prayer for Owen Meany is one of my favourite books. Celebrity because it`s Woody Allen. I don`t even remember if I liked it. Autumn in New York because when it came out I heard it was terrible so I never watched it. Which goes against my policy of trying out movies for myself. Thirteen years later, I`m going to give it a try. Dinner With Friends - I just love that one.
What are some of your favourite movies? I could talk movies forever!
