Every now and then I buy a new el-cheapo CD wallet that's bigger than the last one, and I shift my CD collection into the new one, freeing up the one they were in for my movie DVDs, freeing up the one they were in for my TV show DVDs. Each collection is then free to grow a little larger. Since I never listen to CDs any more, I decided to put them all on a spindle which has freed up my biggest CD wallet for my movies. I took advantage of the shift to alphabetise my movie collection with the help of a spreadsheet, and so I ended up with a list of all my movies. These are them:

Since I'm at it, I'll point out a few interesting ones:

Christmas on Mars is an experimental film by the Flaming Lips. It's been in development since 2001 and sat on the back burner for ages, annoying legions of Flaming Lips fans, until it was finally finished last year. It is insane but cool.

Dark Side of the Rainbow is Dark Side of the Moon synchronised with The Wizard of Oz. I've not watched the whole thing, just a bit of it while stoned with some friends.

Deliverance is the movie that popularised Duelling Banjos. A canoe trip goes awry.

His Girl Friday is a funny screwball comedy from 1940. Good fun, with brilliant snappy dialogue.

More is a cool movie about the slippery slope to heroin addiction. Soundtrack by Pink Floyd.

Paprika is a bizarre anime. No further explanation is possible. Go rent it.

Quadrophenia is an awesome movie based on the Who album of the same name. It makes me protonostalgic like nothing else.

Sling Blade is a film about a semi-retarded guy called Karl Childers. I found out about it through Tucker Max's book I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell.

Steamboy is an amazing steampunk anime. It is flawless, apart from Anna Paquin's annoying accent (her accent is part Kiwi, part Canadian (I think), and she puts on an English accent for the movie, not quite convincingly).

The Gamers: Dorkness Rising is a funny low-budget movie about a Dungeons & Dragons campaign.

The Italian Job is the greatest heist movie ever. I'm sure you know that already, I just thought I'd point out that this is the original, not that unnecessary bullshit remake.

Vanishing Point is an awesome car chase movie, and also a brilliant snapshot of early 70s Americana. Great fun.

Wizard People, Dear Reader is a hilarious alternate soundtrack to the first Harry Potter movie, where Brad Neely narrates the movie with his interpretation of HP's adventures.

Tip from a librarian: ignore 'A', 'An', 'The', etc. and their equivalents in French, German and whatever other languages your movies are in, otherwise you will soon find that the 't' section is enormous.

I couldn't find an option for that in Open Office. I prefer it this way anyway, I don't mind the T section being big.
