Steps to build a family movie collection

Watching movies with your family is a great way to spend quality time with them. It is important to sometimes have a relaxing night with your loved ones, watching films that you all enjoy no matter how many times you have seen that movie. It brings you closer together and makes each and everyone of you feel warm and fuzzy inside. And if your family plans to start a movie night tradition, you should consider starting your own collection of family movies. Here are some tips on how to start a family movie collection.

• The first thing that you need to do is to have an inventory. Take a look at the films that you already have at home. You might still have movies in VHS format. If so, consider having them changed to a DVD format. Make a list of the family movies that you already have on DVD and the films that you have on VHS and still need to be converted to DVD.

• After you have organized your existing collection, make another list of the movies that you still want to have. You can browse through the internet for some great old and new family movies. You also need to ask the other members of your family. After all, you will not be the only one who will watch the movies but your whole family as well. Make sure that you also include the movies that they have suggested.

• Prioritize the films that you are planning to buy. You should find first the movies that you really want to see badly. They should be at the top of your list. Make sure that all members of your family will enjoy or at least appreciate the films.

• Finally, go to different video or DVD shops. Find the movies on your list starting from your top priorities. Ask the staff if they have suggestions which you can add on your list.
