Awesome Doc

I got to see this recently in LA and its great. I remember the first VHS movie my family rented (in the big case) and this doc will take you right back to that place. A must watch for movie fans!

Never Forget

Just bought this and loved it. So many great VHS memories! When I was a kid I could not wait until Friday when the family would go to Pathmark and rent our 3 VHS tapes for the weekend. Love this doc so much!

A love letter to VHS

Lots of fun and even a little enlightening regarding certain aspects of the VHS phenomenon that I wasn't aware of. Recommended.
