I have thought about this recently as I have well over 500 movies on dvd at this point not including mill creek sets and blu ray. Fortunately I bought the majority of them recently at extreme low prices. I have gotten deals of craigslist where I got 40 plus top quality dvd's for 1$ each and I frequent game center where dvds are 5$ and buy one get the next half off so the price is incredibly low on average. Obviously I don't rewatch all of my dvd's and there are probably 100 plus that I haven't even seen yet.

I agree with Jack that although I might not feel like watching a title now that does not mean I will not feel like watching it months from now. The only thing's I instantly remove from my collections are bad comedies. Movies like Hangover 2 and Lets go to Prison I threw right in the garbage after watching them without even trying to sell them. Bad horror movies bring them on, bad action also good, but bad comedy has no place in my collection. Thankfully I have a good sense of what I will enjoy and nearly always get some enjoyment out of my blind buys (which are the majority).

Now, music CDs, that's a whole 'nother ball of wax. I'm a total mental case/borderline hoarder when it comes to my music. You can have my CDs when you pry'em from my cold dead fingers.  Twirling

lol yeah I know what you mean... one factor I noticed is this: would I keep hold of a poor/mediocre CD that had a couple of great tracks? Yes. would I keep hold of a poor/mediocre movie that had a couple of great scenes? probably not... Hence it being more difficult to discard albums

All of them. I invested in a couple of Popcorn Hour A-110a, built a server and bought some ripping software. Life is good.

Probably most of them, but then again I am a nutter for movies so its not a big deal.

I do need to go through and get rid of ones I know I don't need though and make room for more potential acquisitions.

I'd be interested in hearing about Burgo's collection though.  Last count I remember him mentioning was quite a lot of DVDs.  Maybe he is suffering under the weight of their enormity.

I have over 1,100 movies.  About 1/3 of them are on VHS and 2/3 on DVD.  I have so many that I very rarely buy them anymore (maybe 3 or 4 a year, if that). Yes, most of them are collecting dust at any given moment, but nearly all of them are movies that I love and feel are worth watching more than once, and I like having so many to choose from whenever I am able to watch one.  If I were to go through them, I would probably end up getting rid of fewer than 25, so it wouldn't be worth the effort.

I have well over 3,000 titles.  If I watched one per day, it would take me at least 9 or 10 years to watch them all.  So, I'd say most of them are gathering dust.  Not because I don't like them . . . I just don't have time to watch them all.

Popcorn Hour = a device you connect to your entertainment system and your network. It allows one to stream video files from the server and watch them on your TV. I turn on my TV and I get a menu showing different folders containing movies, and I just browse to whichever I want, or I simply hit 'shuffle' and it picks for me. Multiple Popcorn Hours means all my movies are available at any TV I have.

98%, but not entirely by choice. I'm in my last year of university, and since I'm an out-of-town student, I had to prioritize what I could bring with me so we wouldn't have to do two trips to move me out here. Absolute favorite movies came with me, and the rest are sitting at my parents' place. Thankfully, Netflix Canada is starting to suck less (I finally got to watch "They Live!" on it!)

I probably own around 300 dvds, and a bunch of old VHS tapes. They're mostly cult, exploitation, and cheesy bad stuff, and for the most part, I stay away from mainstream stuff that I can catch on TV from time to time.
I enjoy most of them, but there are some that I took a chance on and didn't care for. But hey, that's part of the fun of collecting. I also like DVRing obscure stuff that TCM and THIS TV show every now and then. Lester mentioned in another thread that THE TWONKY is on TCM this weekend. That's a definite watch and dvr recording for me.

      Of mine, especially if I count duplicate titles in compilations, I'd have to say at least 50%. Most of the movies I really want I haven't been able to find, or couldn't find at a price I would willingly pay ($75.00 for THE BLACK SCORPION-PLEASE!)

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I have THE BLACK SCORPION.  I didn't pay anywhere near $75 for it and YOU CAN'T HAVE IT.  HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!!!!   TeddyR
