I finally finished scanning in every DVD in my collection the other night. The last two boxes were particularly torturous. Those UPC labels were small, Amazon didn’t like the discs, and all sorts of frustrations grew. In the end, I had to type out a bunch of codes to get the collection complete, but here I am. Whoo!
Some random thoughts, then:
The last two movies I scanned in were SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE and BATMAN: THE MOVIE. The latter is the Adam West movie. The only modern day Batman movie I own is BATMAN BEGINS. I was never that big a fan of the others in the series, not even the first one.
I do own BLADE 1 – 3, though.
I don’t remember if I ever watched BATMAN: MYSTERY OF THE BATWOMAN. Either it wasn’t that good, or I didn’t see it.
ROCKETEER is not a great DVD presentation, but it IS a great movie. Maybe someday there’ll be some odd return to the characters and it’ll get the special edition it deserves. At the very least, a restoration of the movie would be nice. The transfer to DVD stinks, but it’s all we got.
I do own X-MEN 1.5, but not SPIDER-MAN 1.5.
COWBOY BEBOP — all six sessions — presented Delicious with troubles in the scanning department. Those bar codes are so small, I almost can’t blame it. They’re re-releasing all of those now as a remastered collection. I’ll pass. I enjoyed the originals enough. And the movie.
ReBOOT Season 3 didn’t want to scan in, either. UGH.
A BUG’S LIFE is my least favorite of the PIXAR movies. I prefer ANTZ.
I still haven’t unwrapped BABY: SECRET OF THE LOST LEGEND. Before you judge me — I got it on sale for $5, and it’s one of the first movies I can remember seeing in the theater as a kid. It had to be one of the first three or four. It has certain nostalgic values. And I’m going to sit through it again someday with my niece, when she’s old enough.
I treasure those MARX BROS. and PINK PANTHER boxed sets. Classics.
