    Of the 70-plus DVDs I own (I started in late May of this year), I've only watched about 25 of them. I simply don't have the time to watch them all, and yet I'm still buying them. Heck, some of them are movies I have never seen before in any format, and some of them are still in their shrink wrap!
    So... how many DVDs do you guys have that you haven't even watched yet? Or am I the only one?

    29%: 251 unwatched discs out of 873 owned.
    Whew. I have to stop buying for a while. No Godfather for me!...

    Seriouly, we'll probably watch about 10 of 'em this weekend, between 2 DVD players and 3 family members.
    A large number of those are actually "partially watched"; they are TV show discs like Sopranos, X-Files, and Muppet Show. We may have watched some of the episodes on each disc but not all of them yet. So I don't mark them off until they are completely watched. Same with supplement discs...if I haven't seen all the behind-the-scenes documentaries yet I intend to, I don't give it the "watched" status in my database.
    Hmmm. Maybe I should reprogram to include a "partial" status. Never much thought about it before. Thanks,

    What's a DVD? I'm down to 11 out of 170 something. It took me a while to get there. I remember about 6 months ago, half of my collection was still sealed and unwatched.

    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    The only discs I own that I haven't watched are some of the Troma titles from their $0.25 sale, which have collected dust on my shelf for over two years now. The only unwatched titles in my collection arrived in the mail yesterday. [​IMG]

    My guesstimate would be about 125 DVD's out of 967. I think I am doing pretty well though. I've seen most of them, with plenty to watch if an extended monsoon comes up.

    23 titles of 166 are unwatched, or in the case of boxsets, partially watched.
    I keep the unwatched on a separate shelf and then merge them into the alphabetically ordered DVDs once they've been viewed.

    Well, I'm not 100% sure, but I'd venture to guess maybe 30-40 out of a total of about 175 or 180.

    As for me, I'd guess about 150 to 180 out of more than 300.

    I just checked and there are a dozen that I haven't watched on DVD yet. My bad.

    I'm pretty sure it's close to 25 out of 205. That is including the Troma movies Adam mentioned and calling the X-Files Season 3 as one item. 26 if Season 2 partially watched counts.

    About 70, out of 400ish.
    I'll get to 'em all eventually.

    Roughly 15 out of 210 dvds I haven't watched, and about 10 of them I've just watched with the commentaries, and now need to watch the films on their own.
