my two cents 1000

Introducing The Criterion Spines Project!

As my passion for writing about DVD and Blu-ray has waned over the years, my passion for collecting all my favorite films has not.  In fact, it’s become a bit more personal because I don’t get many screener copies anymore.  Most of the stuff I have added to my collection over the last few years have been things I have bought myself or gifts from friends and family.  And the one thing I have consistently kept up with, is my Criterion collection.
