  • Movie Organization Manifesto mentality or: MOM mentality.

    No idea Wolf Parade had a new album. Thanks Jay.

  • Bizzaro Nate

    Woohoo!! :D

  • Just a quick recap of the rules ;) Thanks for the shows gentlemen, Scott is awesome. I feel like a lot of the Film Junk family are all stages and shades of Reed, just to different extents. All of you are one inciting incident away from filling your houses with one obsession or another.

  • OsoDuck

    Birds of a feather flock together.

  • Corey Pierce

    Harry Potter in alphabetical order instead of by release is just insane. No.

    Can Part 7 just cover organizing the movies & TV shows that are stored in my 8 external hard drives??? Please…

    Four hours should cover it. Thanks.

  • Lori Cerny

    Another wonderful episode. Thank you, Gents.

  • I bought the Guillermo Del Toro trilogy and immediately regretted it. I found a guy on Reddit who traded the single version of the movies. My collection looks so much better now.

  • I get slipcovers whenever I can. So all of my non-slipcover discs are on one shelf, and all the ones with slipcovers are on another.

  • Craig

    The unwatched/to watch pile should definitely be alphabitized, with the “family member has to find film” scenario one would assume that the percentage of choosing a film to watch that you haven’t seen, vs one that you have is for most people is higher so it’s arguably even more important that the regular collection.

  • Beat_C

    just amazing. but what a dick move form jay re. most embarrassing moments ????

  • Eggman

    Just started listening. Great. “struggling” with many of the same decisions, around slipcovers etc. But I’ve also moved toward dissociating the watching of the movie from the way they are on the arranged on the shelf. I remove all the discs and keep them in tyvek sleeves in a drawer, nearly strictly alphabetical, and then I can arrange all the cases in the most aesthetically pleasing way, not in a way to allow me to find the movie I want to watch. I actually take this one step further and rip all the movies to Plex and that becomes my go to source for 95% of my viewing and I can arrange and create virtual collections, or filters, all day long in Plex.
