    Silly question, but after picking up "Shadow of the Vampire" and "Sopranos Season 2" today, I noticed that my S's have an enormous lead over all of my other movies (over 2x the runner-up). Anyone else ever stew over this when you glance over your collection? Perhaps I am just anal or have OCD.
    Excuse me while I go wash my hands 3 times. [​IMG]
