Okay guys, i have read other threads about this topic and realize that most of you will absolutely not let anyone under any circumstances borrow any of your dvds. Point taken. However, what is the best way to tell a family member that you won't lend your movies to them? Some of my family and my in-laws think im the freakin' Blockbuster down the street. I have invested a lot of money into my dvd collection (~250 movies,a small amount compared to other people) as most home theater enthusiasts have. At one point before i got smart and told people that i would not let them borrow any movies, i had almost 20 movies out and i lost track of exatly how many movies and who had them. I'll never let myself do that again, but at times i have a soft heart and consider letting people watch my movies. Oh, btw, I know i could invite my family members over to watch a movie, but there are times i want to have a night with just the wife.
