In Praise of the Two-Cassette VHS Movie

This was fun: For MEL, I did some deep research into an arcane piece of old home-entertainment memorabilia, the two-tape VHS movie. These were movies that were so long (The Sound of Music, JFK, Scarface) that they couldn't fit onto one tape. I took a look at 10 such films, breaking down their vital stats. (Where does the first tape end? Which tape is better? How much did it cost us to buy it on eBay?) Hope you enjoy.
