I believe CONAN THE DESTROYER was the first VHS---we had to rent the VCR too...we were a little late to it, it was 1985. My dad bought a VCR not long after.


My first Blu-Ray was DAWN OF THE DEAD.

Can't remember my first VHS or Blu-ray for some reason. My first DVD was "Jacob's Ladder." I remember that because I was blown away at the amount of special features.

Man, I couldn't even tell you the first VHS I watched...maybe Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Masters of the Universe? Some Children's Circle Reading Program? I'd have to ask my Mother to see if she'd know. I am guessing its either kid related or something my dad let me watch with him.

I know the only reason my parents bought a VCR was to record movies off of Cinemax, Showtime, HBO, etc...wasn't even necessarily to rent movies.

I am pretty sure the first actual VHS I bought personally was Terminator 2. I don't even know why I felt the need to own it because we (my family) already had it recorded T2 onto a VHS.

First reel-to-reel video watched: Star Wars (a long time ago in a house far away)

First 16 mm movie watched: Dragonslayer (a friend of my Dad's brought it over; I was 11 and very impressed by the dragon)

No clue for VHS. I've never owned a laserdisc or laserdisc player.

DVD: Dark City (used - before internet discounts, DVDs were freaking expensive!). I paid full price for Young Frankenstein ($30), and I remember when I bought and watched Seven I was amazed at how much better the picture was compared to the VHS - I could clearly see the rain in the DVD picture.

VCD: Either The Imp (Ivan Lai; the uncut version was hard to find on DVD) or Remains of a Woman (not sure if it was ever released on DVD).

Blu-ray: Repo! The Genetic Opera (I got it for free before I even had a blu-ray player, it was the first one I watched)
