Looking over my collection recently, it struck me that a number of titles were there only because I loved them as a kid and they have heavy nostalgic value. I'm not talking about movie released during my childhood that I would have loved regardless of my sentimental attachment (The Indiana Jones and Star Wars series, Gremlins, Aliens, The Untouchables, a lot of others), but stuff like this: 1.) The Watcher in the Woods: My day care center used to show this strange horror/sci fi/ kiddid movie all the time. For some reason they thought out of all the Disney videos that this was the best for their young kids. Its not great, but I remember it frightening and stimulating me as a kid, so I bought it. The alternative endings are hilariously bad in their effects. 2.) Beastmaster: I saw this on HBO all the time as a kid. I would always get sad when the hero's ferret pal died heroically and then smile at the appearance of the baby ferrets at the end. Hey, I was really young. 3.) G.I. Joe and The Transformers: Don't get me wrong. I think these are pretty good cartoons. But there's a lot of animated DVDs out there and it takes the childhood factor to give these shows the edge over others. What about all of you? Do you have DVDs like these lurking about in your collection?
