Audience Reviews for Rewind This!
Was happy to finally check this one out, as it is filled with the a ton of people I know at least peripherally via Twitter, waxing nostalgic about their favorite hobby. While I can't say that I fully share the same love of the medium, I do find the look back at the Mom & Pop video stores and the various elements of their collecting bug quite charming. Recommended!
