    taped them before DVD.

    I prefer VHS over DVD anyway. ( The latter tends to get stuck -annoying)

    Anyway - TCM movies show a better era.........................

    Must be a great collection.

    Speaking of great movies, I just finally saw Toritino's TRUE ROMANCE in its entirety for the first time last night.

    What a fun flick that was.

    And what a supporting cast, that movie had.

    Walkin's portrayal of a Mafia don was brilliant and Dennis Hopper as a father who he killed likewise.

    Brad Pitt had a cameo as a stoner.

    Gandolfino (of the Supranos) had a supporting role as one of the Don's thugs.


    Val Kimner played the (never fully seen on camera) role as the protagonists imaginary Elvis mentor.

    Gary Oldman's role as a pimp was extraordinary.

    Sam Jackson had about ten seconds of screen before taking a shotgun plug to the chest.

    When a film has so many accomplished actors willing to take cameo and minor roles under the directorship of somebody like Torintino, and the plot is as tightly woven as this one?

    It's worth the price of admission.

    If you can stomach this sort of violent movie, this is definitely one worth seeing.

    This was, in my never humble opinion, superior to Pulp Fiction

    Well, EVERYTHING is political, in one way or another.
