Show us your Shit!

This week's SHOW US YOUR SHIT column comes directly from our main man Sturdy's abode. He's the man behind many of our C'MON HOLLYWOOD columns and has written about 200 DVD reviews for the site over the past few years as well (read those HERE). If you're interested in showing the world your own shit, CLICK HERE for more details or HERE to check out previous columns. This column is featured weekly on Thursdays on the DVD CLINIC.

Now that's a great movie room!! Take it away, Sturdy...

Hey Schmoes, this is Sturdy (29, Florida, male). Guys, if you haven’t gotten married yet, but you’re planning on it, then keep in mind that there are certain concessions you’ll have to make once you find the love of your life. The first is usually to get rid of all of your cool shit, or at the very least put it in boxes in the garage (like I did). However, if you’re lucky enough to find a woman that loves movies as much as you, she might indulge your fascination with home theater equipment and allow you to spend your hard earned money on making your home theater experience the best possible. So it pretty much evens out.

The Movie Room

First up is a view of the movie room, that we like to call the “Sturdyplex”. The screen is 133” diagonally, 121” long and 71” tall. It’s a Da-Lite straight from www.bigscreencenter.com. The colors are a little off, but it’s the best I can show with my camera.

This is the view from the other end of the movie room. The projector is a Sony VPL-VW50 and it gives an amazing 1080p picture that fills up the screen perfectly with images from the Sony BD-SP300 Blu-ray player. The 7 speakers are all Klipsch and the receiver is an Onkyo TX-SR804. The receiver is from the fine folks over at www.crutchfield.com. The movie furniture is part of the La-z-boy movie collection.

The DVD Collection

These are the movies. Just over 1500 total. On the bottom is the beginnings of my Blu-Ray collection and yes, that’s Wilson from CASTAWAY.

PS: The movies laying horizontally on the upper right side are the movies from JoBlo I haven’t reviewed yet. I’m working on it boss…honestly!

The Posters

This is a small sample from my poster collection which is just shy of 500. I’m actually a professional movie poster collector and all the posters hanging up are authentic, original posters from movie theaters. These four are some of my favorites.

The TV Room

This room is our TV room that we use to watch sports and most of our TV shows. The TV is a 60” LCD Panasonic. The DVD’s on the left are all TV sets and the posters are our “coming soon” posters. We try to keep these up to date with movies that haven’t come out yet. As you can see, we need to change out the CHARLIE WILSON’S WAR poster.

The posters on the opposite wall have no theme, but we change them out every few months to keep things fresh. I think this time we were going for “original films from summer sequels”. I don’t know, just go with it.

The Toy Collection

Finally, this is what’s left from my college apartment days. The top shelf is filled with random movie toys and the bottom is all that’s left of my childhood. It ranges all the way from my Dukes of Hazard phase to my GI Joe phase. Something went wrong here because my toy collection shrunk and my waistline grew.
