Rewind This! DVD Review



Synopsis: An exploding industry without rules! Direct to-video madness! VHS vs. Beta! In the 1980s, videotape changed the world and laid the foundation for modern media culture. REWIND THIS! traces the rise and fall of VHS from its heyday as the mainstream home video format to its current status as a nostalgic relic and prize to collectors who still cherish it. Featuring interviews with both filmmakers and enthusiasts from the VHS era, including Troma legend Lloyd Kaufman, indie auteur Atom Egoyan, and Hobo with a Shotgun filmmaker Jason Eisener, REWIND THIS! is the definitive story of the format that came to be synonymous with the home video revolution. So gather up your friends and start the pizza party just make sure to have your tapes back on time. 

Review: I watch a lot of DVDs, as you can image.  I also watch a ton of television, netflix, whathaveyou.  I always have.  A good portion of what I enjoy are documentaries about various topics.  I'm kind of a nerd that way.  When I saw the cover to this particular documentary, Rewind This!, I knew instantly that I was going to love it.  When I began watching it, I found myself enjoying it so much that I wished it wouldn't end.   Rewind This! is a display of epic nostalgia for our time.  This comprehensive and completely enjoyable look at the history of the video tape from Betamax to VHS and how things have progressed now to DVD and Blu-ray and into digital media.  It talks with collectors and those passionate about preserving the media, which I greatly respect and understand.  If you are passionate about nostalgia.  If you enjoy the archival and preservation of the past, this documentary will engage and thrill you.  Buy this, buy this now.  This is the best thing I've seen in years.
