I've been collecting DVD's since 1997 and by far this first half of this year has been the slowest year ever. In fact most of the stuff i've bought this year have been rereleases. Not all but a big chunk . For many years there were times when I was buying two or more titles (day & date)a week. This year im lucky if a I buy two a month. I realize that alot of that had to do with the studios playing catch up getting older popular titles out but there just seems to me that there is a real lack of good stuff that has come out this year. So far. Now I will say that I dont buy alot of TV series on DVD so I have not payed much attention there but movie wise is it just my taste or do others feel this way as well? I know my wallet is happier.
