    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    One problem with trying to cut back on Blu-rays on the shelves is: they're worth almost nothing on the secondary market. Anything we don't think we'll rewatch will meet with the same reaction when listed on eBay. You might get $2.99 for most of the overstocked titles. Maybe. And if you offer...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Collecting movies (some would say hoarding them) represents a deep-seeded desire as a child in the 60's to own copies of movies to run at my own leisure, if possible in a home theater venue. In those days, of course, if you missed a film at the theater, you wouldn't be likely to see it again...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    It says you're like me and many others here. I have amassed about 4500 movies on disc (1500 DVD's, 3000 on Blu-ray) and just keep on plugging, except when times are hard, at which time I have to sell off a chunk of stuff (one of those times is happening now). Truth is, I haven't ever watched...
