Film Junk Bonus Podcast: Movie Organization Manifesto, Part 5

mompt5

Back by popular demand, it’s the fifth installment in our ongoing series of borderline psychotic discussions about the day-to-day minutiae of buying, collecting and owning movies. We continue our quest for the perfect movie collection by discussing the arrival of 4K and the dos and don’ts of adopting a new format, plus we once again debate the death of physical media, Disney’s new Big Sleeve packaging and the proper way to handle your J-cards. We also do our best to offer tough love to the many lost souls currently suffering through their own personal versions of collecting hell. (If you missed any of the previous episodes, you catch up right here.)

  • I used to my name on the inside of cases for DVDs and in very small writing on the inner ring of my CDs. It was because I loaned my stuff out all the time or had roommates with some of the same discs. I didn’t want to lose things or get them mixed up with others’ (often crappy) stuff.

    For October and December, I pull all of the Horror and Christmas movies out of my collection and put them on a separate shelf. This way, we can easily watch the movies that we’re in the mood for. I put Die Hard on the Christmas shelf. We just had a big Christmas party and my collection was on display for many to see. If you were at my party, would the Christmas shelf make you think less of me as a person or of my collection?

    Also, I just listened to the Avatar podcast and it’s weird because I can remember where I was and what I was doing back in 2009.

    Happy New Year!

    The seasonal shelf is an approved part of the manifesto. We covered it on at least one of the previous episodes!
