A cool blend of contemporary & retro culture

Be kind, rewind

VHS Blu-ray Sanity Trio @2x

They say it’s best not to judge a book by its cover. Well you can’t judge a film by its cover, either, when it comes to this repackaged batch of old-school movies available soon through JB Hi-Fi.

Dubbed the ‘Rewind Collection’, the faux-worn cardboard packages might look they’d contain dodgy VHS cassettes from the ’80s, but instead you’ll find they house crystal clear Blu-ray discs stamped with some of cinema history’s most awesome movies.


Back To The Future

Among the hit-list are Back to the FutureFerris Bueller’s Day Off, ET: The Extra-Terrestrial, Jaws, The Breakfast Club, Labyrinth and a batch of other cinematic classics.

Each Blu-ray package (oh but it looks like VHS, it really does) comes complete with a collector card and T-shirt iron-on so as to continue with the retro vibe.

Of course, the impracticality of VHS – with all its fuzzy vision, tracking issues, and constant tape jams – will never see the format actually coming back into style. But you’ve got to agree the look of this collection is pretty darn cool.  Antonino Tati


The ‘Rewind Collection’ is available from December 6th in a limited edition run of 1,000 copies per movie: Jurassic Park, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Labyrinth, Stand by Me, The Breakfast Club, ET: The Extra-Terrestrial, The Dark Crystal, Beverly Hills Cop, Jaws and Back to the Future. RRP $19.98 each available through www.jbhifi.com.au
