    Just curious. I personally have 27, with 2 more on the way (Notorious & Rebecca from DVD Planet).

    I've been meaning to ask here since a couple months ago when I was accused of lying in another forum when I mentioned how many I own (around 20 at the time). Some pinhead insisted that there was no way I could own that many Criterion discs.

    This belongs in the Poll area.

    I currently own just one Criterion (Spartacus) out of just 32 DVDs in my small collection. I plan to purchase Seven Samurai soon.

    I've got 62 and that's counting Brazil and 2-disc releases such as Rebecca and 8 1/2 as one disc. I'll at least be picking up Wild Strawberries and Rashomon in the next couple of months.

    Not meant to be bragging - just answering the question:

    All of them, including all OOPs and the first edition pressing of The Seven Samurai (really).

    I've got about 90 and have all the OOP.

    I had them all as of July or so, but sold off a bunch because I don't have the time to watch them all and decided to re-purchase as they go OOP or at a later date when I have time.

    Used the money for HDTV and Receiver upgrades.

    11 titles, compromising 1.5% of my entire collection. Note that I'm not collecting "Criterions", I'm collecting movies I'll enjoy on DVD in the best edition possible. [​IMG]
    • [*]Armageddon - Criterion Collection1998[*]Blob, The - Criterion Collection1958[*]Brazil - Criterion Collection1985[*]Chasing Amy - Criterion Collection1997[*]Dead Ringers, David Cronenberg's - Criterion Collection1988[*]For All Mankind - Criterion Collection1989[*]Lord of the Flies, Peter Brook's - Criterion Collection1963[*]RoboCop - Criterion Collection1987[*]Rock, The - Criterion Collection1996[*]Silence of the Lambs - Criterion Collection1991[*]Spartacus - Criterion Collection1960
    (There are 16 discs among these 11 titles, for those who care.)
    There are easily a ½-dozen more titles I'd get in a heartbeat if I came up with the cash, but for now they'll have to wait!

    Canadian prices for Criterion are insane. [​IMG] I only own 3, but there are so many more which I would love to own.
