LOL! I think BlazeMaster is busting my chops because of this conversation we had a while ago. You proved your point! Good one!

In a sense, aren't you wasting money too, by owning a HT system, when you can just go to your local cinema and watch it there?

Seriously though, I think Weeds is a great show, IMO. So much better than the other junk they show on TV. I don't regret buying any of those movies. I watch them over and over. I feel it was money well spent. In fact, I almost never go to the movies, I never go out to expensive restaurants, I don't go out and spend money on alcoholic beverages, and I really don't own any other expensive luxuries like a fancy car, etc. My HT stuff is really all I spend my money on and they really don't cost much. Out of the 25 BDs I have, only three of them cost around $22-23. The rest cost around $10-17. I almost always try to get my BDs when they're on sale.

So, yeah, you proved your point, BlazeMaster. I understand what you're getting at and I sincerely apologize for what I said before. Yeah, our families and friends comment to us about how we waste our money and it can be annoying. My mom spends money on fancy clothes and shoes and my dad spends money on books and beer. I don't spend money on those things. I buy movies. It's our hobby. Everyone has some hobby and our families and friends need to learn to realize that.

I watched it all on Showtime in HD, so I have no plans on buying it. I'm still deciding if I should watch the 5th season on demand, but quite frankly I think there are other TV series I'd rather watch first, like Dexter.

Yes, I was busting your chops. I'm watching season 3 right now, and just can't stand any of it. Just about every single character gets on my nerves, and none of it seems realistic enough at all. You should look into Amazon or eBay, you can actually catch some pretty good deals, especially if you're ok with buying slightly used ones.

I do agree that Season 3 wasn't as good as Seasons 1 and 2. But I thought it was good in its own way. I got them all cheap though, I got Seasons 1 and 2 for $15 each and Season Three for $17. I haven't watched Seasons 4 or 5 yet because I don't have Showtime. I was thinking about just buying it if I find it them on sale, but from the way people are putting down those two seasons, I'm feeling kind of hesitant. I guess it all depends on how I feel if/when I see it on sale.

Here's my last 2 BLUs:



The second movie is the "CAN'T HARDLY WAIT" with Hungarian BD cover.

This is my first romantic comedy on BLU.I love that movie ,i saw it many years ago on VHS.It was very cute.

I hope i'll buy much more comedy in the future.

I don't wanna buy only sci-fi and horror movies always.

I'm late to the party....

Can someone explain why people want to see pix of someone's shelf/shelves of movies??

I can see that anytime I go to Target or Wal Mart...so why is there a whole thread showing movies sitting on a shelf at someone's house??

I guess it's because people find it interesting to see how people organize their BDs, i.e. if they put them in any particular order. And I guess they also would like to see what shelf they use.

Same reason there are car shows. If you wanted to see a bunch of cars you could go to Target or Wal Mart and look in their parking lot. But if you are a car enthusiast you want to see what other car enthusiasts are doing with their car/car collection. I have looked through this thread a couple times and I have yet to see a single person who has displayed there collection like target or wal mart would.

Each collection and how it is displayed says something about the person who has built it, much like each person's post on this thread. From your post I can guess that your collection consists of movies like prom night, scary movie, meet the spartans, and a pirated copy of bruno. Now, I could be totally wrong and misjudging you, and that's why you should post a picture so we know what your true tastes are.

I like to see people's collections for a number or reasons. One of them, is that I sometimes have my memory jogged regarding a certain title that I meant to pick up, but never got around too.

Interesting....I use Amazon etc when I want to see what's out there since they have a great category/recommended set up for browsing.

Just to reiterate what others have said, you obviously don't get it. If that truly is the case, then this is not the thread for you. Please refrain from public postings in this thread asking why people enjoy posting their collections. If you have a question, feel free to PM one of the mods.

I'd say about 4.5 a week on average since the format launched 3 1/2 years ago.... Sorry I'm a whore for mental math

impressive nonetheless

I was just thinking the same thing! $20K in Blu's on a small screen. Should have diverted about $4K of that and bought a 120" screen and new Panny projector.

lol. I meant on average NOW. I got my TV first (40 inch Sony ) about three or four years ago and then I sold off most of my dvds (they filled the book cases as well) I then used that money and loaded up on Blu's (and hd dvd's at the time). I bought them mostly from members here and during good sales. Now i average about 2 a week. some weeks are better then others. thanks for the compliments. I know the TV looks small for some reason but in my apt 40 inch does fine..... for now anyway
post #778 of 938
Aside from bills and other expenses, I'm lucky to buy 5+ a month. Considering the average cost of a BD at retail, these collections are mind boggling. Almost like you need a part time job just to buy BD's lol. So far I have around 15-20, but I've only been buying them for a few months. Hopefully I have a huge collection like these someday.
post #779 of 938
Yeah I used to be big time into buying DVDs back in the day and easily had over a thousand at my peak. Sine then I've gotten married, had kids, and slowed down my rate to the point now to where in the 3 and a half years since BD came out I'm just now at around 130. There's just too much going on in my life now to really get into collecting like I used to be.
post #780 of 938
i look at it like the blu rays i purchase are identical to the master for audio and on most normal displays the perceptable difference at higher resolutions will be small. in my theater yes and ill most likely upgrade those, but i held of on buying dvds and im making up for it now.

disclaimer, i was a poor high school and college student during the dvd era so while i bought some it was nowhere near the blus ive been buying
