RavenGlamDVDCollector's DVD Inventory (1) Moviesby RavenGlamDVDCollector | created - 30 Jun 2016 | updated - 11 May 2017 | Public
Pretty girls on film. That is my subject.
Poor old RavenGlamDVDCollector, they don't give much of a damn about his reviews, 'cause he's harpering on about old forgotten titles in never-visited places? But they love my lists! Ever wondered what The Raven has in his vast collection?
Movies on DVD that I own. List doesn't include TV series, but does include TV movies. List represents what I have, an absent title might reflect on its unavailability to me, although there aren't that many movies I have been unable to obtain on DVD.
The sad history behind my Inventories is that I had nearly the complete thing on my beloved BlackBerry 9380, that is the Movies, TV and Music Videos... Came the dreaded moment when my cellphone acted up, professional helpers tried in vain, and it was left to a friend and computer wizard who uttered the dreaded words 'factory reset' so I scrambled and salvaged these info onto another cellphone, but never got to all the rest, and the TV bit is h-u-g-e and went into extra detail regarding numbers of episodes, guest stars, and more. Which is why you won't see the #2 in this series very soon. But the very fact that I am working here now is thanks to that factory reset which saved my cellphone at the loss of tons of info. Moral of the story: Don't mess about, use the storage facility so kindly provided by IMDb! Praise IMDb!
At this early stage, most of them have no comment. But I'm not done here yet. Truth is, of course, I've been at this for years and years, IMDb is new to me, I should have done this from the start, but, let's see what I am yet to come up with...
Boxsets are causing consternation, and movies registered on IMDb under different names throws my alphabetical approach into a jumble, as I have to stick to the DVD's title.
Just-received titles appear at the end of the list, throwing the neat alphabetical order in disarray, until eventually reordered. Which is quite a task on my BlackBerry 9380.
Images on IMDb are subject to change. Any referral to similarity between set and IMDb image may have been rendered void.

R | 91 min | Drama, Horror, Mystery
When two American girls on a bike trip in a remote part of Argentina split up and one of them goes missing, the other must find her before her worst fears are realized.
Amber Heard and her equally lovely companion. Recommended. Flawed, it fizzles in the second half, but glam-wise, great. Needs a whole better plot development.

27. Ashanti (1979)
R | 118 min | Action, Adventure, Drama
Dr. Anansa Linderby (Beverly Johnson) is kidnapped in a medical mission in Africa by a slave trader. From this moment, her husband will do anything to recover her and to punish the bad guys, but that will be not an easy task.
Beverly Johnson is an absolute waste of time. This one is a stinker. The old original chained poster, now you're talking! but misleading as hell. She should have been a Naomi Campbell type, a Beyoncé type, but, no, not at all. I just sat there thinking "you deserve a kick for this" or something like that. Wasted potential, something better, altogether different, slave-girl story-line yes, but more truly involving, needed.
28. A Small Town in Texas (1976)
PG | 96 min | Action, Adventure, Crime
A crooked sheriff in a small Southern town frames an ex-convict in a drug bust and takes his girlfriend.
Susan George was the reason, her part is small, and she wasn't star material anymore, saddened to say. Even worse case is TOMORROW NEVER COMES, but I thought, gee, she's younger here... :( big mistake, big!

R | 93 min | Comedy, Crime, Mystery
At a Catholic high school, the popular girl teams up with a sophomore newspaper reporter to investigate a case of stolen SAT exams. Once the duo target their suspects, a larger conspiracy is unearthed.
ASSASSINATION OF A HIGH SCHOOL PRESIDENT, for crying out loud!
Mischa Barton. But stick to THE O.C. as this is really not worth the effort.

After an explosion in space and subsequent two-minute radio-out period, two astronauts return home to their wives. Slightly it's revealed that they're not the same as they were.

36. The Babysitter (1995)
R | 90 min | Drama, Thriller
A teenage babysitter is the focus of two boys and a man's separate obsessions.
Proud as a peacock about owning this. It had an exorbitantly high price, like a gazillion bucks, but then went down like 75%, and I scrambled like a little rabbit!

R | 93 min | Horror, Thriller
In a small college town, a young girl working on a babysitting job in a rural farm is terrorized throughout the night.
