A word from STACK Editor-in-Chief, Paul Jones:
Over the summer, my family visited from the UK. While we only catch up once every two years, my Father and I always set aside time to lock ourselves away and watch a handful of classic movies together.
Shane and The Wild Bunch are traditionally the first two on the list before we sift through the shelves for other suggestions. A conversation drifted on to John Ford’s The Searchers; a film I mistakenly thought I owned. One trip to Melbourne’s Elizabeth Street JB Hi-Fi later, and I was walking out with it on Blu-ray.
I’m regularly astounded at how comprehensive JB’s catalogue selection is and whenever I’ve needed to add a classic film to the home collection, I’ve generally been able to. While I accept that not everyone shares a similar passion for the classics, it’s heartening to know that they are readily available and easily accessible for those who do. In a market that’s now primarily driven by blockbuster new releases and TV box sets, classic catalogue titles tend to be marginalised.
But let’s not forget there are generations of viewers out there who have yet to discover the majesty of a John Ford western, the visual par excellence of Lawrence of Arabia, and the charm of Casablanca. It’s important that these films remain vital and relevant, and continue to be handed down.
I was fortunate enough to grow up in a home where viewing the classics ranked alongside enjoying contemporary cinema – a tradition I’ve carried over to my family today.
