    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Definitely worth checking out. I watched that one going into it blindly without really knowing much about what the film was about which is something I usually try to do in most new films I watch as I feel I can form my independent opinion on it without any pre notions of how it was received...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Not necessarily. Competition prevents the big retailers from fleecing the public as they would be In a position to charge extortionate prices. I am going to make a presumption and assume the disc label sellers such as Kino and Shout Factory and the rest sell their products to all retailers at...

    Yes. Space will play a major part in making a decision on the matter.

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    People with as much money as him never do bargain hunt. You can't paint all wealthy people with the same brush but many of them are pretty stupid when it comes to things like investing and saving money etc. I think you would be surprised at how lazy and ignorant some are. I have seen a few...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Good question. I've always thought I have subconsciously read the genre terminology somewhere like in a review or something and just not realized it. Like all genre's you are going to get cross pollination and nothing is black and white. But I will give you a personal list of brilliant movies...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I probably had around 100 to 200 VHS films and perhaps the same amount of DVD movies too but cleared them all out over 10 years ago now and I regret it. Had a few HD DVD titles too along with a Toshiba HD DVD player and also some Superbit DVDs as well. It would be nice if I still had them just...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Yes. I have been buying brand new and sealed Blu Ray discs from very small independent sellers on Ebay for what I think absolute bargain prices the last couple of years. They are practically giving them away. You can find from time to time auction buys on new and sealed movies for bargains too...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I think it takes some kind of process to really come to understand your own tastes in relation to movies along with other preferences of various subjects. You can easily become a victim of your own ego and deceive yourself that you like this film or that film especially when you are young and...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I must say if I had his bank balance my collection would probably be just as substantial. Did I hear him say he has only watched around 200 films of his 15,000+ collection? May I say he is perhaps a victim of compulsive behaviour?

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    My mindset is the same. I don't ever intend to sell my collection regardless of what it may be worth. They were purchased for enjoyment. However, I have mentioned before that now is a good time to build your collection assuming you don't have a lot of films you wish to purchase in the future...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Too true. I have had the same experience. You can be safe assuming most big seller items such as Jurassic Park, The Fast & The Furious, Harry Potter series & 007 movies will sell for hardly anything. Probably better to give them away. But many discs will sell for significantly higher prices...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    My guess is probably because the DVD titles have been replaced by superior Blu Ray discs so will not be in demand. Maybe check your DVD titles where there have been no release on Blu Ray yet and see if the prices are somewhat higher. My guess is they probably will be especially with movies...

    Not to my knowledge but there will be someday once they start getting collectible.

    They will all go OOP someday and sooner than most people think.

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Completely agree and I have commented on this in a few threads. They will get extremely collectible at some point in the future. It will be a very similar scenario as with original vinyl LPs and EPs etc. Vinyl started to fetch very good prices from the 1990s onwards. Today many collectible...

    Love it!!! When is this available to watch?

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    Not sure your opinions offer much thought on my observations. Firstly, I only used Mulan as an argument for demanding a high fee to watch a movie "on demand" as it was the most recent and notable at the time I posted it. There are many other movies you could use as an example where this...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    It could be important to keep some films when it comes to the streaming companies. We recently had that Die Hard fiasco where I think Netflix pulled it because of being "politically incorrect" or something. Can't remember the exact reason now. There will be more of that virtue signalling going...

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I too take pleasure in knowing I have shelves of films that can be watched at a whim. I also recently culled some discs that I know I won't watch again. Trying to get ruthless with what films I decide to let go as I only want films in my collection that I know I am going to watch again and...

    I will have a look at it. Sounds expensive if you watch a lot of movies on a weekly basis assuming you rent the film.

    Why I Own So Many Movies.

    I have commented on this problem with streaming myself. I have yet to try streaming but I will at some point in the future. But which one do I use? Hulu, Netflix, Disnep +, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, ITunes, You Tube & Vudu. All with their own unique content and some with titles which are only...
