Unsure what to do with them all now that I've watched them all....I know a few libraries near me still carry them, maybe they'd want them, since they don't have any media of those titles as is.
Curious, were you trying to see all the movies from your birth year? I am somewhat doing that on my end. The bad news is that my birth year is so far back that I'm slightly embarrassed to admit it. The good news is that my birth year is so far back that they just weren't making/releasing as many movies theatrically like they are now.

I think there's a very good possibility that Volere Volare was the last laserdisc I bought (certainly one of the last few). A local audio/video shop was clearancing their LD inventory for $5 and under. I enjoy the film a lot.

I'm certain the last VHS tape I bought was Treasure of the Moon Goddess, because I bought it long after I stopped buying tapes, and I was a Beta guy anyway so only bought a handful of VHS. It's a Linnea Quigley movie that I don't believe had a release in any other format. Unfortunately, it's one of her least entertaining and no nudity.

Got these at a goodwill for 1$ each, which will make worthy additions to my interior retro showcase display.




I actually enjoy watching Evil Dead in this analogue format. It helps strengthens the low budget qualities in it, makes it all the more unsettling now that you can't notice those rubber hoses as easily.

That's because it's the cleaned up Anchor Bay VHS from the late '90s.

The HBO VHS from the '80s is like staring at a black screen for 90 minutes.

Really, that's funny because that's actually the one I was hoping to run into.

It's not that bad, actually. I have the second-issued HBO VHS tape of The Evil Dead (in the cardboard sleeve instead of the original clamshell), but would love that first-issue.

I was also disappointed to learn that the second-run of The Evil Dead by HBO on VHS already has that damn Macrovision on it, so I can't (easily) rip it from the VHS.

Looking around, that's a pretty good score! It doesn't look like it's up on eBay that often and YouTube, the home of nearly everything forgotten, only has this clip from the release:

I see that the video is available in multiple uploads on Vimeo. I have to admit that I never heard of this artist until I spotted the VHS at random.

I found "Hercules: Zero to Hero" at thrift store near me.

It's basically three eps. from "Hercules: The Animated Series" made into "a movie." As of now the Hercules tv-show is not on DVD so this is its only home release.

Was this Disney's first live-action remake of an animated film?

according to Wikipedia:


Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book (the one posted) was December 25, 1994
and the 1st live action remake

101 Dalmatians is 2nd and released on November 27, 1996

I hate commenting on Disney history/trivia and if I'm wrong or the great wiki is wrong then please correct -- just don't send the Mouse (tm) after me.

Last VHS tapes I bought were three Australian Tranzor Z VHS tapes:



The first and third tapes have the same content, with the cover art being the only difference between the two.

Have fond memories of frequently renting the first two tapes as a kid. Never rented the third one as none of my local rental stores at the time had it. In fact, I never knew of that one's cover art until I stumbled across it by luck about a year or so ago.

Took me almost twenty years to find copies of the first two tapes due to how frustratingly rare Tranzor Z tapes are. I have a spare copy of each, but the condition of their covers are quite weather-beaten.

I also have three of the five U.S. Tranzor Z tapes and am still on the hunt for the other two, which have eluded me thus far.
