Have you watched every single dvd in your collection?

This means you watched all of your dvds plus all the bonus material on the dvds.


I still have not watched the bonus features on about 20 of my dvds.


I have never gotten around to watching and listening to the audio commentary on any of my dvds.

Football season delays dvd watching.

Considering before the DDD coupon I was already "backlogged" I certainly am now My biggest "problem" is Netflix, in order to make it worth while you got to keep the DVDs moving which leaves no time for the ones you buy One has to ask at point does does a hobby become an obsession become an addiction

WRT Football season what I usually do is pop in a DVD on PiP and listen to the commentary on the stereo while watching the game on the main screen w/ CC. Then again back in college I could only really study w/ the radio and TV on Used to drive people up the wall.

I'm not big into special features. I don't find the need to watch a bunch of documentaries and making ofs that I don't want to see. Also I'm not big into commentaries unless I hear it was a good one. So if I exclude extra features I've seen all my DVD's. Most of the more than once.

I think that 95% of the regulars on these forums are DVD Obsessed and that definitely includes me

I also have watched less than 50% of them completely.

On a side note, corycougar without a doubt gets my vote for member who creates the most new threads.

Yep basically, except for a few things on my Alien Quad (bonus and the theatrical cuts) and the Godfather set, which I just got.

I only watch all the special features on certain DVDs. For instance, other than audio commentaries, I've watched every extra on both LOTR EEs.

But I haven't even watched all my DVDs. I picked up a couple DVDs at Blockbuster for $10 and never got around to watching them: Road to Perdition and Brotherhood of the Wolves.

I just bought the 15-dvd set of the Muppet show and it will be awhile before I get through that.

I haven't watched every episode of the TV sets I have either.

Just looking at all my unwatched TV sets makes me cringe!

Nope. The problem is that I usually don't go through long periods of time where I don't get any new DVDs so that I can go back and watch the ones that I haven't seen but bought a long time ago.

I have zero desire to listen to some of the commentaries, but I have seen all the primary content on all my dvds, I am the type of person who buys dvds to watch, not collect

My unwatched pile is at 50 dvds. Not too shabby considering I own about 580.

My biggest problem is the TV box sets. Because I plan on spending 18 hours watching Alias S2, that's about 9 unwatched DVD movies that will have to go on the back-burner.

DVDs are for collecting, not for watching. I haven't opened a single DVD I've bought in the past 5 years... Paraphrasing from other threads of course.

Yes, I've watched every single one of my DVDs. I open them and watch them the moment I get them.

Nope, at least 30% unwatched. Which is why I don't buy tv series. If I don't have time to watch all the movies I buy, there's no way in hell I'd have time to watch entire seasons of tv series.

Let's see
I have around 5 to 6000 DVD and around 20,000 VHS
I think I have seen around 40 to 50%
Some of them I saw orginally in other formats - HBO instead of VHS for example

I've seen every movie or show I have on DVD (except for a few recent sets from DDD), but I haven't watched every single DVD that I own. It's all on my to do list, but that never really gets done.

Every title I've watched but there's a lot of Disc 2's I haven't gotten through. Minority Report, Lion King, X2, and a lot of the Godfather set.

Nope. Most of my collection is an upgrade from VHS. They are favorite movies I've seen many times before, but never seen on DVD or widescreen. When I pull them out to watch, it's almost as if I am seeing it for the first time. I just can't believe I used to watch movies on VHS with a modified AR and didn't know any better. My unwatched DVDs are like a treasure-trove just waiting to be watched!!
