If you’re anything like Sean, then you probably spend hours and hours (and hours and hours) of your life sorting through VHS tapes in dusty backrooms of thrift shops and estate sales. But, if you live your life with more purpose than Sean, then you can just read a few of his articles he wrote for the website Rupert Pupkin Speaks to glean some of the best titles he’s stumbled across during all the tape-shuffling.

If you’re not familiar with the site, it was created to “Keep older films in the public consciousness via lists and short reviews.” Past contributors include Lars Nilsen (Austin Film Society), Zack Carlson (Bleeding Skull/Alamo Drafthouse) and Joe Dante (Gremlins, The ‘burbs). Brian Saur (founder of the site) is also co-host of the Pure Cinema Podcast with Elric Kane (Shockwaves Podcast).
