Star's Hollow...


Do you amass digital copies of movies like Katie and I do? On the semi-rare occasion that we actually buy movies to keep, we actively seek out combo packs that come with, at the very least, Blu-ray and digital versions of the film. Even better is when it has a DVD copy. Not that we ever use the DVD copy if we have Blu-ray. I mean, why would you?

But I digress.

So I was scanning through our digital library on iTunes when I realized that I forgot we had some of these films. In some cases, I don't even remember buying them or redeeming codes to get them, etc. Check out this list...

  • Big Hero 6
  • Bridesmaids
  • Captain America: The First Avenger
  • Covert - an animated short film I don't remember at all
  • The Dark Knight
  • Despicable Me
  • Despicable Me 2
  • The Expendables
  • Family Guy: Blue Harvest 
  • Finding Dory
  • The Freak - another animated short I don't remember
  • Frozen
  • The Good Dinosaur
  • Guardians of the Galaxy
  • The Hangover
  • Home
  • Hugo
  • The Incredibles
  • Inglourious Basterds
  • Inside Out
  • Jaws
  • The Jungle Book
  • Juno
  • Jurassic Park
  • Jurassic World
  • The Lost Thing - another animated short, but I actually remember seeking this one out after the Oscars one year
  • Love Actually
  • Mickey's Great Outdoors
  • No Strings Attached
  • Peter Pan
  • Pineapple Express
  • Pitch Perfect
  • Prometheus
  • Rain of Madness - this was a behind-the-scenes mockumentary of Tropic Thunder meant to poke fun at Hearts of Darkness which was a behind-the-scenes of Apocalypse Now 
  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
  • The Secret Life of Pets
  • Sing
  • Sleeping Beauty
  • Star Trek
  • Star Trek Into Darkness 
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens
  • Ted 
  • This Means War
  • Toy Story
  • Toy Story 2
  • Toy Story 3
  • Trolls
  • Twilight - hush your piehole
  • Up
  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • Wreck-It Ralph
  • Zombie Prom - I'm at a complete loss on this one
  • Zombieland - my first-ever straight-up digital copy purchase

A lot of these we don't even own the physical disc anymore like Ted, Pineapple Express, The Hangover, and Bridesmaids. It's also possible we have a couple movies at home that have not been opened to be able to claim the digital copy. A Million Ways to Die in the West comes to mind. I should get on that.

Now, remember that the movies above are just in iTunes. We also have an Ultraviolet/Vudu account that contains (beyond duplicates of Disney movies that display in both apps):

  • Conan the Barbarian - free copy of the new version of the movie (2011) with Jason Momoa


  • Ghost - freebie
  • The Italian Job - freebie
  • The LEGO Movie - free digital copy with the combo pack was only available via UV, not on iTunes; stupid
  • Me and Earl and the Dying Girl - bought this with credit we had on Vudu
  • Rango - freebie
  • Sgt. Bilko - freebie
  • Stripes - freebie
  • There's Something About Mary - freebie
  • Zoolander - freebie with our purchase of tickets for Zoolander 2 via Fandango; the only good that came of that purchase

Yes, I cash in on free offers whenever possible even for bad movies. You never know when you might be in the mood for a schlockfest.

But, overall, I think it's a really nice mix of kiddie and adult fare. Our iPads are pre-loaded with a bunch of these plus several episodes of Nathan's TV shows. I'm not even going to try to list all the TV episodes we have downloaded over the last decade and a half. You'd have to sit down with a full pot of coffee to read that one. And I'd need two just to type it.
