I've been collecting for 20 months now. I started in December of 2000 when I got my first four due to getting a Playstation 2, which were Gladiator, A Clockwork orange, Seven, and the Mummy(1999). Now I have 182(and climbing), and find the hobby very addicting. Too bad I didn't have the money to collect laserdiscs. I never really got into collecting VHS. DVD has gotten me to appreciate movies, and what goes into them alot more.
