So you're the one who bought "Death to Smoochy."

I have not yet joined the DVD revolution, but I have a small library of VHS some 7 or 8 cassettes strong. You know my birthday is coming up, it would be nice if you A.netters got up a collection plate and got me a nice new DVD player.

"Rant ON...
Never own anything that doesn't increase in value or is not directly necessary for your daily existance.

I've never understood the point of having a huge collection of DVDs.

A buddy here in Houston has well over 250. An estimate on "the math" of his collection is over $3,200.

For what he's spent, I can be a member of Netflix for the next 14 years and have access to 15,000 titles.

Other than a handful of special interest DVDs, I'm content to let other people own them and I'll rent.

Rant OFF"

MSYtristar, how can you have all of the Kevin Smith "Jersey Trilogy" films except the first one, Clerks? That's the movie that's responsible for the whole series of films, and plus, most of the the injokes in the other films relate back to Clerks, and vice versa.

Now for my collection (recently restarted, as I sold my collection off while I was unemployed):

High Fidelity
Clerks (the animated series) Uncensored
The Young Ones every stoopid episode

Oh jeez. I had a mega DVD buying frenzy which lasted a whole year (2002). From the Godfather box set (classy) to (hard to believe though it sounds) accidentally buying Capricorn One TWICE (both times were unintentional).

There's a website in the UK called www.play.com who have almost any movie for £5.99 inc p&p, and I was working from home all year and my Mum had just died and the ex had moved out and 9/11 was only a few months old and I think I probably paid for a few Porsches somewhere in the film business by going on to play.com and buying a couple or maybe half a dozen films, like every other day. I could publish the list but it'd take way too long.

If anyone wants my spare copy of Capricorn One drop me a line.

I too question the logic of having a big DVD / Video collection. Music I can understand because you will play them over and over again. There are very few films you will do with so why pay all that money just for them to sit on the shelf. If I really want to watch something then I'll rent it.

'There are very few films you will do with so why pay all that money just for them to sit on the shelf'

That's your view. I'd guess that those of us that do 'collect' (select) DVDs would select those that, yes, we would want to watch again and again.

There are people who can only read a book once, and there are those who can read a book time & again; you get different angles, develop different interpretations and understandings, and notice subtleties you hadn't noticed before.

Same with movies.

I've got a mix of Indie and 'mainstream' stuff:

Natural Born Killers
Proof of Life
The Man who wasn't there (Coen Bros.)
The Shining (Kubrick)
Eyes Wide shut (Kubrick)
The others (Amenabar)
Carry on Abroad (had to have at least one Carry On  Big grin )
Big Lebowski (Coen Bros. my favourite)
Monty Python - Holy Grail (wickedly funny)
Passenger 57 (terrible, terrible, terrible, but thus comical)
La Haine
Rabbit Proof Fence
The Hours
Bunch of 5 (Norwegian "Schpaa")
Shipping News (no one likes it except me)
Amores Perros (Mexico)
Out of Africa (a big mistake, you can have it if you like)
Jurassic Park (ok, it's very Hollywoody, but a classic)
Crimson Tide
Happiness (cruell, disturbed film, but funny)
Full Metal Jacket (another great Kubrick)
Dr. Strangelove (spooky/made me uncomfortable)
The Eye (great horror)
The Human Body (BBC Docum.)
Bugsy Malone (for old times' sake..)
