Movie collection!

My movie collection is a mess!

I have loads of movies (about 200), and even more series collections (bunch of Star Trek’s and Stargate’s + a “zillion” more)

I’m not sure if you remember, but last year I told you I had started up going through my movie collection. Just like I’m working my way reading myself out of my bookshelves, I started a watching myself out of my movie collection task.

The intention was to go through my movies one after another, watch it one more time, then decide which one of these categories it falls into:

  • keep – great movie will watch it again – worth being kept as a physical disk
  • copy – good movie will/might watch it again – worth copying it to a PC hard drive
  • toss – good to crappy movie probably won’t watch it again (or know I won’t) – get rid of it

For the time being I’ve been working my way through the individual movies collection, as the series are a whole different ballgame.

And, I just had a big instalment of movies leaving the house 🙂 All counted up, they amounted to 50 movies out-the-door!

Now, you are wondering, did I actually watch all those 50 movies? I can answer that with a resounding NO, I did not 🙂

After having watched a few pretty bad movies, I started to get more selective on who would make the cut, even just to watch, and a lot did not pass that little test. Then during my living room packing party, I had one day where I got into a bit of a ruthless tossing mode, and out a few more went.

Since my intention is to half my original collection, I still have a few more to go through. But I thought 50 out-the-door, was worth celebrating 😉

    Go you!!! That’s what I did with movies/books! I started out watching/reading them in order to decide. Then I got a sense of the types of movies/books that still interested me and donated piles that I knew were not worth watching/reading again.

    I’m really enjoying this series of yours, Anne ~ yesterday I tidied up and cleared clutter from 5 drawers (one in the kitchen, 3 in my office, and one in my bedroom). Aah . . . that’s better.

      That’s how I’m finding I’m doing to with the books and movies! I’m a bit curious to see how that translate to when I start on my series… if I find them just as great as I once did, or if they will quickly go out-the-door! Not that this, in any way, will be the case with my Star Trek series.. I KNOW they will stay put 😉

      I’m so happy you’re enjoying my packing party series.. I’m kinda feeling like a “one trick pony” right now 😉 It’s great you got inspired to attach your drawers. It’s funny how stuff tends to creep back, even when we keep our focus up.

      I watch way too much TV. Long (long) time ago before we had a bunch of channels on the TV (actually its not THAT long ago) I would watch movies and series a lot. That is why I have a bunch. I’m working my way through them, and believe me, there is a few dicy movies there, like B, C and then some movies.. So they are easy to let go…
