    Wow. This thread has really got me thinking about how much money I'm wasting on movies. When I was a kid (before everyone had a VCR), there were movies and specials my brother and I would wait the whole year just for the chance to see during their annual showing: The Wizard of Oz, The Towering Inferno, Airport '77, King Kong (1976) and Jaws are the first ones that come to mind, not to mention all those Rankin Bass holiday specials. In fact, ANY movie we really wanted to see was a magical event back then. We would start counting down the days from the first moment we found out whatever we wanted to see was going to air. God, it was like Christmas! There were no second chances back then. No Tivo. No record. No rewind. If you missed it, you had to wait an entire YEAR to see it again. GONE!

    Even when I got my first job and saved up to buy my first VCR (for a ridiculous $800 back then, if you can imagine) a couple of my friends and I would rent and watch Carrie and Body Double almost weekly one summer. Every viewing was as if we were watching them for the very first time.

    But NOW? Well, I guess I've become so spoiled with a movie collection that I can go to and pull from at any time that I don't watch some of my favorites nearly as often as I should. I'm too busy watching whatever Netflix sent or trying to catch up on all the classics I recorded off of TCM that I rarely even think of pulling one of my old favorites off the shelf. I just take for granted that they'll be there and I can watch them at any time. Sad, really. I miss that magical childhood feeling of capturing a once-a-year moment and living in it.

    Anyway, enough blah blah blah from me.

    I can say in all honesty that the only two movies I have consistently watched every year without fail for a number of years now are HALLOWEEN and HALLOWEEN III.

    I hear ya. That's why I've refused to buy the Christmas videos for my kids. I know they would just watch them year round, over and over again until they got sick of them (or would have, they're a little older now). I will cheat and DVR them, but we watch once together and then they get erased. Two years ago the DVR hard drive crashed and we missed Rudolph and Charlie Brown. Them's the breaks, we survived.

    As a kid I had a paper route. On Saturday afternoon you'd get most of the Sunday paper including the TV section - the first thing I'd go for. I'd scan the usual time slots for the coming Saturday. Creature Features at noon, Chiller Theater at 8:00 PM, channel 9 at 11:30 PM. I'd watch anything but the biggies were Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things, Don't Look In The Basement, The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave (talk about warping a young mind!), The Twisted Brain, Grave Of The Vampire - you get the idea. And if for some reason you weren't home, or worse, you couldn't stay awake, you just had to hold out for another six months or more before it made the rotation again.

    A different world then - good memories but all told I'll take the convenience of the DVD over being at the mercy of syndicated programming!

    *And with that I ask forgiveness for my digression and return you to your regularly scheduled program* :)
