DVD collection update:

  • Beethoven Triple Feature (Beethoven, Beethoven’s 2nd, Beethoven’s 3rd) – I JUST REALLY LOVE PUPPIES, OKAY? And it was only $4.
  • The Adventures of Milo & Otis – Another cheap puppy movie. I wore out the VHS of this when I was a kid and haven’t seen it in forever… so you can probably expect a Childhood Favorites Revisited post on it!
  • The Adjustment Bureau – Gift from my mom (Thanks, mom!)
  • The Break-Up – My sister and I could have sworn that we owned this on DVD. We kept catching bits and pieces of it on cable and, after consulting my list and realizing that we didn’t actually own it, we picked up a cheap copy at Target.
  • Ponette – Another gift from my mom (Thanks, mom!)

I got a couple of Blu-rays as gifts from my dad (Thanks, dad!): Contraband (more a gift for himself haha, but I am the keeper of the movies), Saturday Night Fever/Grease double feature and the 75th Anniversary Edition of The Wizard of Oz!

Finally, I got my hands on quite a few Shirley Temple films on VHS. I was gifted twenty VHS tapes, some still in the shrink-wrap. The films are: Baby Take a Bow, Bright Eyes, Captain January, Curly Top, Dimples, Heidi, Just Around the Corner, The Little Colonel, Little Miss Broadway, Little Miss Marker, The Littlest Rebel, Now and Forever, Our Little Girl, two copies of Poor Little Rich Girl, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, Stowaway, Susannah of the Mounties, Wee Willy Winkie and Young People. Provided my dusty ol’ VHS player still works, I’ll be doing a series of reviews on these films. Huge thank you to Danny Contreras for giving these tapes to me!
