You like to make fun of Joe Sixpack's DVD viewing habits but you spend countless hours on a DVD forum whining about cover art, the lack of inserts, and a 1/4 of a sec. crotch shot missing from a cartoon character.

....you sneak newly bought DVD's into the house and put them on the rack hoping they will blend in & your wife doesn't notice the 25 you've bought in the past month.

Although this is off-topic, I agree that I would think about the movie I would buy, but Club Dread was amazing (I also saw a sneak preview here on campus).

This is probably the only one that might apply to me.

I talk to a guy at work about DVDs but only when he brings them up. I despise talking with him about DVD though since he HATES widescreen, wants to record DVD to VHS, and only likes movies if they contain lots of action.

Guess I'm not hardcore like most here.

Great list. I'm guilty of more than a few. Here are some others that apply to me--and hopefully some of you so I don't feel so pathetic.
  • You spend an ungodly amount of time reorganizing your collection to alphabetize it and a month later you've received enough DVDs that you need to do it again.
  • You and your significant other keep your DVDs separate because you don't want "chick flick" titles like Dirty Dancing in your collection and she doesn't want gore titles like The Dead Next Door in hers.
  • You and your significant other argue over who will be the one to buy a new release so it can be in their collection.

You can extrapolate every date's day of the week for the next 6 months by using Tuesdays as a guide (ie "March 19 is a release date so March 21 must fall on a Thursday".
Oh god, I do this all the time. "Well, April 20th is a Tuesday, so the 21st must be Wednesday."

"How the hell do you know that April 20th is a Tuesday?"

"Um, because the 'Master and Commander' special edition comes out that day."

Hey, Dana, do you mind if I adopt this list for Cinema-Review.com? I'll give you credit, of course.

I can't disagree with that, I like the cases too, but I just can't bring myself to buy these sets... too much cash for what you get, but that's another thread entirely...

You remodel your home to accomodate more shelf space, knowing that those shelves too will soon be full. That would be moi.
