DVD Survivor: An Introduction

Alright, so in my last post I mentioned my concept of "DVD Survivor", wherein I have a list of DVDs that are teetering on the chopping block, and I watch them to determine whether or not they stay on the shelf.  Simple, right?  In Part 1, I will not only list all of the movies I'll be watching, but also do the first review.  Everything is listed in alphabetical order, which is also how I will be watching the films.

The List
  1. Black Sheep* (1996)
  2. Ed Wood (1994)
  3. Good Night and Good Luck (2005)
  4. Hero (2002)
  5. The Last Samurai (2003)
  6. Lost in Translation (2003)
  7. Saw II (2005)
  8. Shaolin Soccer (2001)
  9. Syriana (2005)
  10. Taxi Driver* (1976)
Some quick stats: Oldest movie: Taxi Driver (1976); Newest movie: Good Night and Good Luck / Syriana (2005). Percentage of movies with George Clooney in them: 20% (tied with 'Movies with Bill Murray in them).
* - Denotes a movie I haven't watched yet

Well, this should be interesting.  The first review up is 1996's Black Sheep (not to be confused with 2006's film about zombie New Zealand sheep)!

My original plan was to actually put the review here on the blog.  I've watched it, and written it, but for some currently secret reasons I am holding it back.  So how about we play a little game?  Let's go through the list and see which I think I'll Dump or Keep.  Even though I've watched Black Sheep, I can still give you my initial opinion when I first made the list.
  1. Black Sheep* (1996) - DUMP
  2. Ed Wood (1994) - KEEP
  3. Good Night and Good Luck (2005) - KEEP
  4. Hero (2002) - DUMP
  5. The Last Samurai (2003) - KEEP
  6. Lost in Translation (2003) - KEEP
  7. Saw II (2005) - DUMP
  8. Shaolin Soccer (2001) - DUMP
  9. Syriana (2005) - KEEP
  10. Taxi Driver* (1976) - KEEP
So, we shall see in the coming weeks/months!
