Week 9: From My Vault: 4 Movies Watched

Continuing my weekly series where I go through my impressively large collection (1,054 titles) of DVDs and Blu-Rays. I have been neglecting older movies for new ones, so I’m going through and re-watching everything from my vault. I have the films divided into categories: General, Series, Classics, Kids, Shakespeare, and Documentary. I’m starting with General.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989)

Comments After Re-Watching: Such a shame Ted Demme passed away at such an early age. He would have made a lot of great movies like this one.
Why You Should You Watch This: It is a solid biopic of the Columbian drug trade in the ’80s from yet another perspective. It also has an incredible soundtrack.

Another week’s selection with more randomness of the types of movies I own. Come back next week to see what I watched next.
