What DVD do you own that you feel like you are the only one that owns it?
Post your title.
If someone owns a posted titled let us know.
Let's see if we have a "winner".
Official entries accepted until 6/28/04.

My entries are:

"Tender Loving Care"

"I'm Your Man"


This poll arises from the lack of response to my post in the software section (6/3/2004):

Just curious if anyone has "watched" either of these interactive DVDs" -- do they ever end?

"Tender Loving Care"

"I'm Your Man"

We tried "Tender Loving Care" -- quit after about 3.5 hours because we had to go to bed -- had to work the next day.....

There were NO replies so I concluded that I am the only one that owns these

Sorry Mary. My entry for DVD that only I own would have been Tender Loving Care, which means we were both suckered into buying that piece of crap by the clever marketing on the box. I'm highly suspicious that the interactivity is nothing more than a random scene changer.

And I also don't know how it ends, because the journey to the end was so painful. It has sat untouched on my shelf for four years now.

For the curious, the DVD is like a bad movie that you might see on Cinemax late at night. It's almost as bad as owning a DVD like Play-mate of the Apes or The Erotic Witch Project II, but no normal person would own DVDs like those. Posted Image

The only one that comes to mind is the Jake 2.0 sampler DVD that UPN sent out for free. I remember seeing a lot of people signing up for it, but I haven't come across anyone else who actually received it in the mail. Mine arrived several months after I signed up for it and a few weeks after the show got cancelled.

I'd be willing to bet that most people don't know that The Village People made a movie and even fewer have "Can't Stop The Music" as a part of their collection Posted Image

I can confirm I own none of the mentioned titles. Posted Image


The Quiet Earth

I'd own this if it were to come out in R1. This must be the R2 or a boot.

Not in my collection, but I actually saw this theatrically. :b

I would guess that no one else has Manhunt (Caceria). It will be gone from mine when Blockbuster does a decent trade in title. Posted Image

Yes he did. It was an "Up All Night" regular, based on Conrad's Hearts of Darkness. You know, the same book Apocalypse Now was based on. Posted Image
