Yes, more than I can count

I should note that I can't bring myself to actually watch any full-length BD titles on them. The main use they get is comparison testing and that's all. Yes, it is crazy. I should be able to enjoy the movies on them. But... doing so reminds me of work too much
. One look at the blue cases and I can't bring myself to actually want to watch the movie and keep thinking of this format competition.
Even crazier.... When I am airplanes (which is a lot), I will watch any movies from BD studios on crappy LCD screens even though I have most if not all BD titles. It is only HD DVD movies which I reserve for watching when I get home.
Now, I will make an exception for two movies: The Fifth Element if Don's shop does a great job of cleaning up that title and does justice the second time around. And Spiderman. But as I type this, that would be hard too
. But maybe I hide the case under the couch and take the disc out with my eyes closed
