I switch it up every now and again, but most of the time, there are two groups...

1) DVDs whose extra features have not yet been fully explored.  In alphabetical order

2) DVDs whose extra features have been completely exhausted.  In alphabetical as well.

I used to set it up with the one I saw most recently at the end and the one that it's been the longest at the front etc...

Oooh, I like that idea. I need some easier way to identify what I still have to work through.

i have 2 rows, the one in back is my semi-neglected row.  the row of great movies (i don't inetenitonally buy bad ones... usually) what I mean is Clockwork Orange and Royal Tenenbaums are in front, wheras Jay and Silent Bob and Identity are in the back row.

I try to make the ones I haven't fully explored (or watched for that matter) stand out so I indeed do later on.

*By director against one wall and around the tv (titles done alphabetically)
*Criterion (alphabetically)
*Two dvd stands catagorized by drama, action, horror/suspense and comedy (alphabetically)
*One book case with box sets, classics and animation (however they fit)

Actually, I got messier as I got older, so you might be in trouble. ... College ain't exactly the place to learn organizational and cleaning skills.

I do, however, treasure my DVDs enough to organize them. Kind of like I treasured my baseball cards as a kid.

I organize them alphabetical. The DVDs of my favourite directors' films (Peter Jackson, PTA, David Fincher) are standing of course next to each other in chronological order.

Alphabetical and grouped by director.
more than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. the other, to total extinction. let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
woody allen (side effects - 1980)
