I'd still like to check out both REWIND THIS! & Adjust Your Tracking.
I prefer to be called a movie collector. It just so happens that some movies are only available on VHS. I do occasionally like the box art aspect as well. But I don't want to be identified as one of those people nor do I want anything to do with that subculture that seems to be sooooo sweepingly hip these days.

My mistake then...on that account, knowing I don't have to watch or hear that mouth breather makes this documentary all the more worthwhile.

Went up to Stroudsburg, PA over the weekend to Severed Cinema's VHS Weekend and finally caught a screening of ADJUST YOUR TRACKING. As one of the interviewees, I'm probably a little biased, but I thought it was a damn fun flick, starting with a little bit of history but then delving into the whats, hows, and whys of a whole coterie of collectors. If you're even remotely interested in those dusty old cassettes or cult films in general, you should find a lot to like here. Check out their website to see if it's playing near you!

There's actually a third VHS doc in the works, this one from the director of the recent festival favorite EUROCRIME! THE ITALIAN COP AND GANGSTER FILMS THAT RULED THE '70s. (Which I'm dying to see!)

As far as I'm concerned, you can never have too many VHS documentaries, and Mike Malloy's PLASTIC MOVIES REWOUND: THE STORY OF THE '80s HOME VIDEO BOOM covers the tape revolution with encyclopedic thoroughness. Dissecting the format with six distinct episodes like the "Golden Age of Mom-and-Pop Video Stores" and "Filmmakers Versus Distributors," PLASTIC MOVIES REWOUND charts home media from its inception to its proposed future -- and everything in between. Of course, as it's reaching its final stages, the production needs a little more green to keep the cameras rolling, and that's where you come in. A little can help a lot, and you'll look cooler with another IMDB credit. Bigger donations score you some sweet signed videos, vintage 'zines, copies of the finished doc, and more. So click the link, watch the promo reel, and decide for yourself if it's something worth investing in. Less than a week left and only $1,200 to go!

I'll be there! But as for yet another VHS doc, can't say I'm too excited. Feels like we'll get a lot of people jumping on this bandwagon.

I saw Adjust Your Tracking last week at the Grand Illusion Cinema in Seattle. It was a lot of fun and I definitely enjoyed it more than I thought I would, but I'm still anxiously awaiting watching Rewind This this weekend. Although it was fun seeing VHS collectors in AYT, a history of the format and home video in general just sounds a lot more interesting to me. But it is cool that there are multiple quality docs out there exploring different avenues of the same subject.

I saw Rewind This over the weekend at a local theater. Really enjoyed it and so did my wife. I'll have to seek out Adjust Your Tracking soon.

I screened the film locally the other week, and also enjoyed it. Was stoked to see my one-second cameo on the big screen!

Anyway, for those who do want to see it, it's now available on iTunes (if you're in either the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand) as of today for limited time: https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/re...s!/id678902502

I checked this out on iTunes. As far as documentaries go, I thought it was average. I didn't find it to be that particularly well made...some of the editing was wonky, and the transitions between subject matter were abrupt. For example, one second they are talking about pan and scan, and all the sudden we are on the topic of porn. Kind of odd transition if you ask me.

The subject matter was great...would have preferred to hear more from the film makers and pioneers of the VHS boom, or maybe information on the various companies. I thought for sure Band would have had a larger role in the film. But I guess, they had a lot of ground to cover so, you can't fault them for not going into too much depth. I liked the eclectic group of interviewees...From Don May, to the Alamo Drafthouse guys, to Elvira, to the cover artists...great selection of interviews.

Even the collectors weren't that annoying to hear from. Dormarth looks like a dude I would hang out with,... but that bald dude is a total creeper.

All-in-all it was interesting. Not sure if I'd ever revisit it again, but it was cool to watch.

DVD Review

Streets on Tuesday. Looking forward to seeing it, but I have a feeling it will be up on NetFlix almost immediately like a lot of MPI releases are. So I'll hold off on buying.

I watched it last night. I didn't really find it informative, but I was definitely entertained. Plus, it's always great to see people like Kevin Tenney, David Schmoeller, Cassandra Peterson, etc. It was also interesting to see all the people behind the labels (Synapse, Severin, etc), as I'd heard their names but had never really seen their faces. Same goes for the people who do all the L.A. revival screenings (New Beverly, Cinefamily, etc). They even had the guy who wrote Destroy All Movies!, one of the most entertaining film books in my collection.

The thing I didn't like about it was seeing all those VHS collections and not being able to browse the titles.
