I'm about to do a count of my 80's collection, and just wondered, how many of the listed films on Fast Rewind (579) do you own on VHS, DVD, Bluray or whatever?! Anyone have them all?!

EDIT:
I've finished my own count. On the various platforms but mainly DVD I own 200/579!
Pretty pleased but a lot to get still! [Smile]

That's incredible! You are so close to the goal. I've seen a good deal more than the 200 I own currently but would really love to bump my collection up in the next few months. Add 50 classic titles by Xmas [Smile]

Wow! aTomik, that is seriously impressive! I would say that I'm probably more where Ray is at the 200-250 mark

aTomik, would you ever be able to take some decent screenshots for some of the rarer movies where we haven't got good ones? I know it's time consuming (god knows I do!) so no worries if not [Smile]

I'm stuck at around 330.

It's interesting to note there's a fair number of the more well-known and beloved 80s titles i do not own on any format
(for example Gremlins, Fletch, Planes Trains and Automobiles, and Home Alone). On the other hand, i do own loads of
obscure stuff that is not (and will probably never be) included on the Fast Rewind page, mostly horror and all sorts of
(s)exploitation titles.

But still.. considering my collection predominantly focuses on the 70s rather than the 80s, 330 is not bad.. not bad at all ! [Smile]

330 is pretty excellent! But how can you not have Gremlins!? I've got it on Vhs, Dvd (Us and UK version) and Bluray!
Planes Trains another masterpiece too.

Yeah, i know.. but i also think it's no coincidence that the titles that are missing from my collection are among the most accessible
and easily available movies from that time period. Personally i prefer to spend my money on some obscure title and be amazed at
how bizarre things could get (for example, i recently watched Liquid Sky for the first time in my life) rather than pursue to get as
many of the more familiar titles that can still be seen on (Dutch) TV on a regular basis. It's always a matter of personal taste, i guess.

Haven't counted but I'm pretty sure I own or have owned at least half including the old VHS tapes I still have stored in my sisters garage. And if you want to count all the movies recorded onto blank VHS tapes, then that number will jump up significantly.

Wow! You guys have some enormous collections.
All I could muster was 110. Of course I own many others that are not listed of the great rewind site. A couple I want on vhs are the Wraith and Secret Admirer. These are oddly hard to find using my method. Of course I could find them on eBay but that would cost more than I want to spend. 99 cents or bust is the only option.

Haven't even broken into triple digits, I only have 63. But I love every one of them.
