    A snappy passion project capturing the love & success of the VHS revolution & what it opened up for Film Lovers. Focusing on the infamous titles only released on VHS & some incredible collectors this makes a simple but terrific documentary. Filled to the brim with odd but fascinating interviews with those still heavily involved with VHS both collecting & screening it. An insightful documentary that clearly shows VHS ain't dead!!

    How do all of these nerd guys look exactly the same? The talking heads approach isn't able to sustain an entire feature. Lucky I was real into the topic I guess but I felt bad making anyone else watch this with me.

    A bit rough around the edges, but covers a golden age that I grew up in incredibly well.

    What is the legacy of VHS ? How did Video Stores change the way wee see movies ? What did it mean to be able to pause, rewind, & fast forward a film ? In answering these questions, this offbeat documentary explores the rise & fall of the VHS tape & the changing face of film exhibition

    As an avid record collector, I can completely understand why the preservation of the video format is just as important as any other in this digital age, yet this documentary still surprised me in a lot of way. While it could have gone with a bit more funding for graphics and editing, this is still a very interesting, important and funny documentary. A must for film buffs.
