Placement in DVD collections


More human than human

Ok so I know that there are some people out there like me who like to organize their movies by genre, but then sometimes you get those movies and your not exactley sure where to put them. For example I have a superhero/grahpic novel, action/crime, sci-fi, horror, animated movies, comedies, drama genres. So then do movies like a history of violence go under graphic novel or crime/action and then 30 days of night is that graphic novel or horror?
I put anything that's based on a comic, or had a comic series later based on it in the graphic novel section, which is then arranged itself first by publisher, then by tv or movie.
I have Marvel alphabetically then DC alphabetically then all other publishers' titles behind that. All on its own shelf.
i put everything in genre ... i would say graphic novels and comic books fall under the same category.
I don't separate by genre; I simply line up all my DVDs alphabetically. Then, when I get into film series, I bundle them in multi-disc cases, and keep them on another shelf. So far, I have all 3 "Jurassic Park" movies in one case, plus all the "Terminator" entries so far, and the first two of "X-Men", "Pirates", and "Bourne". Once I get the third of those, they'll recieve the same treatment.
I have...

Marvel Shelf

X-Men 1-3, Punisher 1989 Workprint, Punisher 2004, F4, F4 Rise of the Surfer, Spider-Man 1-3 & 2.1, MTV Spider-Man series, 70's Spider-Man series, Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends, Hulk 1980's cartoons, Ang Lee's Hulk, Captain America (yes), Daredevil & DD director's cut, elektra, Blade 1-3

Aside from those, I have a boxsets shelf (Jurassic Park, LotR, Star Wars etc), James Bond shelf (everything including NSNA and the three MI movies), a Dr Who section, Three Musketeers section, comedy section...

To cut a long story short I have far too many DVDs.
All my comic related movies are in the same section, including things like Ghost World, From Hell and Black Mask.
The only separation I do with my DVDs is Movies in one section, TV shows in another, and then Music in it's own section.

And then arranged alphabetically.

I actually do like all of those, I'm not even going to use 'completist' as an excuse because I only buy stuff I like.

Except Superman IV. There really is no excusing that.
Depends...I have comic movies on a nice shelf. All other movies are scattered. Some by franchise, some by director, some by genre.

No real organization.
