My Movies and Showsby John Cable | created - 27 Sep 2012 | updated - 08 Dec 2012 | Public
This is only the DVD's which are on my shelf, so the "family shelf" ones such as Star Wars won't be here. As well as that, any DVD's I haven't yet watched won't be here. I'm adding them as I'm watching them, so I've watched every one on the list. (yieks!) If you're looking for a good film, choose "US Release Date" from "Sort by:" and then flick it so you've got the oldest film first. The 20th century was so much better for good films, with a few minor exceptions in the last 13 years.
