I love VHS! When I was growing up, my family had a couple VCRs and we used to dub copies of tapes by the dozens at a time. We must've ended up with hundreds and hundreds (at least) of titles by the time I was older. I can remember my dad bringing home "Star Wars" on VHS: I believe that it cost something like $120 new. Before that, we had video-discs, the ones where you had to insert the big disc then and then flip it over to get to the second half of the movie. I remember watching "The Godfather" on video-disc: it had two discs, for a total of four sides...that was a lot of flipping over! I also couldn't agree more about the old VHS artwork. Redoing artwork for DVD/Blu-ray releases is, to me, akin to painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa.

I have willow on VHS. You might be too young to remember that format haha. I like the original VHS artwork, I don't even know why companies redo artwork when they release old movies on dvd

Ditto "Labyrinth," although I don't think they ever made that into an NES game.

Bonus points for Labyrinth.

Ah, "Willow"...how I love this movie! I adored Warwick Davis on "The Wizard" TV series and was so excited to see him on the big screen in "Willow." I even had the "Willow" Nintendo game. Everything about that movie is wonderful.
