I just went through all my spending for last year on DVDs and I was quite appalled. I've made it my goal to spend less on movies this year and one way I've done that is to join up at a little site called SwapaDVD.com. Neat little club. I recommend to all trying to rid their collections of junk. I've found a bunch of cool DVDs there and it's a lot cheaper than what I had been doing. Anyway, I started to notice a trend of films that pop up on Netflix Instant starting to get dumped onto swapadvd soon after. Doesn't always happen, but it seems to show a general trend towards folks getting rid of physical media in favor of streaming. Totally makes sense. Not sure I will ever be able to give up physical media altogether myself, but I respect those who can. I'm also happy to take their DVDS. In regards to this new list-there are some fun Disaster flicks on Instant right now. Many of them focusing on natural disasters(TOWERING INFERNO, THE SWARM, WHEN TIME RAN OUT) and others are disasters onto themselves(XANADU, DREAMCATCHER). I enjoy both types.
This site is all about keeping older films in the public consciousness via lists and short reviews. I am the maker of lists and the curator of countless others from a great group of regular contributors. Check back regularly!
Follow me on TWITTER, I pretty much only discuss movies: here.
