How many of your dvd's are still unopened

I have about 110 dvds and I have to say that about 50 - 60 % are unopened. Ever since my daughter was born 7 months ago, seems like I have no time to watch movies.

There have already been threads about this. In my case, 75 of my 161 DVDs are unopened.

None... I open all my DVDs as soon as I buy them.

I probably have about 40 (out of 432) that haven't been watched yet.

About 40 out of approximately 1200 .... big backlog (for me)thanks to the DDD coupon nonsense.

None, I open all my DVD's when I purchase them and I watch all my DVD's within 14 days of purchase.

None. And all of them have been watched at least once.

Zero. Most of them watched, although I just picked up several box sets. Haven't watched all the discs although I've seen all the shows before.

Also open all DVD's immediately, although I may watch them months after purchasing them.

I once bought one of the single episode MST3K DVD's and waited about two months to open it. The disc said it was MST3K, but when I put it in the player, it was 'The Three Tenors in Concert' on both sides. I have immediately opened and tested every DVD since.

Man, that sucks.

As soon as I get home tonight, I plan on opening ALL of my unopened DVD's! (50 out of 300).

I don't understand why you wouldn't open it immediately!! How do you know what is inside?? What if on the outside it is "Contact", but on the inside is a disc on how to best utilize contact paper throughout your house! Open it for goodness sake..just do it! it takes a second to open, but it takes a lifetime to get over the fact that you got screwed with a disc that broke it half.
i dunno..i buy..don't watch any..but open just so they are accessible if and when i decide to view. that's all.

Due to a shipping error (possibly) I got a large number of Troma DVDs during their sale way back. I watched a number of them and then got Troma-ed out. I haven't watched a Troma movie since (save Cannibal! The Musical) and still have 1 disk sitting unopened. Everything else I open right away.

I have 1 unopened right now (well atleast for the next hour or so ) as it was one I was thinking about returning but decided not too. Overall though I usually open them as soon as I get them to check them out before the return policy expires. Unwatched though I probably have around 2 dozen.

All of my dvds are opened. Even if I know I won't watch the dvds for a long while, I open them just to check out the insert...

He's got the illness. It's the same reason I own Jaws 3, 4, Home Alone 3, and Last Action Hero.

Fortunately, I am in recovery. It is a long process, but I'm working on it. Baby Steps! Baby Steps!
