New House = Media Room

ExpressLogoAs a movie enthusiast and avid DVD/Blu-ray collector, I have for some time wanted a dedicated media room. Currently I’ve been viewing most of my movies in our living room, which is needless to say, not terribly convenient, especially since my wife is not always as fond of the odd and unusual assortment of films  that appear on the 1001 list as I am. However, with our recent purchase of our new home, and the imminent construction of a media room, I’ll finally not have to subject her to the likes of W.R.: Mysteries of the Organism (1971) or Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954). As a result, I’ll be taking a brief hiatus from the blog – probably until the end of July –  as we stage our old house for sale, and ready the new one for movie watching (Klaus Ming July 2015).

    Two years ago, in my youthful innocence, I didn’t know what “staging” even meant. Now, I hear the word and remember everything that goes with it, and I’m immediately tired. 🙂

    (Hope everything goes smoothly.)

    Thanks Anthony. The staging is coming along nicely, we should have the house ready for sale by the end of the week. Renovations in the new house are in full swing – with the arrival of our carpenter.

    Good luck on the sale, Klaus, and congratulations on your new room. I have for years been watching my movies in a little cave and it is such a relief from the living room.

    House is listed, little time for movies – though i did find time to re-watch Days of Future Past on Netflix. Much work yet to do on the new place before i’m sitting in the home theater that i’ve envisioned 🙂

    With my movie collection still packed away as renovations continue, my movie options continue to be limited to what I can watch on Netflix through my Roku. As the new media room currently sits at #3 on our priorities list, it looks like i won’t be reviewing much from the 1001 list for some time – as the majority of the odd and unusual 150 or so films I have left are pretty much inaccessible to me for the time being.

    Here’s something I think you’ll enjoy while waiting for your media room to appear:

    @ Anthony – I read through her list and was inspired and overwhelmed by the amount of thought put into 100 things. I think I’ll follow-up with my own top 10 as you have done.

      I’m usually very leery of long internet lists (this is what happens when you don’t have editors… 🙂 ), but this totally justified it.

      I look forward to your list.

        Been brainstorming with my wife the last hour or so – and have 26 favourite moments so far – not sure if I should edit down to go to 100 🙂 The first one that came to mind was “Damn you to hell!” – The twist ending from the original Planet of the Apes (1968)

    Getting close, but we’re still a few weeks away from a functioning media room.
