This week’s question was inspired by this tweet:
kids today are missing out of the pre-streaming era, where your childhood was at least partially defined by some semi-obscure movie your family just happened to own on tape and you watched several dozen times

Modified slightly to give it a bit more leeway:
What film from the prestreaming era were you obsessed with that would be considered obscure now?
Bonus points if you can dig up a 40-year-old VHS cover.
My answer is what I quote-tweeted in response to @KrisWolfheart:
Me, except we didn’t own the VHS tape, I just borrowed it from the library over and over again, and it was #Spacehunter Adventures in the Forbidden Zone. https://t.co/Zcn13WcbbE pic.twitter.com/eCAY6OgDWX

I must watch Spacehunter again! I haven’t seen it since I moved away from that library in 1988.
