    I last watched BUS STOP (1956) on VHS :)

    Wow... What a good movie!!!!!!


    I got this a few months ago and the first time I watched it,i fell asleep during it so i mi$$ed most of it.... Tonight I was up all thru it and could really see it!!!

    MY.... MARYLIN WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!! -- I get the whole gist of the movie..... She was nervous facing love again after having so many dissapointments that she tried to get away from it..... When she Discovered HE hadnt ever tried for a girl before,it touched her heart in many ways and she decided to go with it!!!!!!


    A VERY GOOD MOVIE!!! (As stuff was in the 70s and earlier)


    People hadnt been compromised yet,they had use of thier own minds!! (And could act on thier own accords)

    Wow, still using a VHS player! You must really be into antiques. Upgrade to Blu-ray and you'll see "Bus Stop" and other great movies like you've never seen them before!

    He's a big fan of analog. While I enjoy spinning the vinyl, VHS isn't something I could ever go back to.

    I don't remember the last movie we watched at home. Recently saw Avengers at the theater, and on Tuesday going to our Music Hall to watch a silent film with a live organist/silent film composer.

    LPs and good analog film I get. VHS and audio cassette, no way. I recently did a tour of our big Museum Center, which included the Omnimax. Hearing the head tech talk, he's of a dying breed, splicing together the big reels and takes great care in his work. These days many times no one at a theater can even change the lens on a projector. Had to watch an entire movie that way during the Oscar Marathon.

    El laberinto del fauno (Pan's Labyrinth) on BluRay in mid-May in 1080p. Which is several times better than the 240i of VHS, plus I see the movie in it's original aspect ratio.
