who has the biggest DVD collection? [hehe]
 
I noticed alot of people linking to their collection, so its only natural to ask which member of DVD talk has the biggest DVD collection?


PS: if this thread has already been done [post a link], and forgive me i am a noob here. :O

Austin?

I think he has more DVDs (title count) than most B&Ms.

In the Bizarro universe, I have the largest collection among forum members...
Spoiler:
For those who don't know their "Superfriends", think everything being inverted (i.e. good=evil, big=small, etc).

That "[hehe]" you've got on the end of your title makes it sound like your an evil genius, plotting some form of evil involving DVD's...

I'm here.
Around 5,000 dvds and around 20,000 to 25,000 VHS
By the way, those pictures I posted a while ago did not show the whole collection
For the record, I have checked with a few managers of Blockbuster and Hollywood and I do have more titles than most of their stores.

Being a movie fan. Isn't that the point of owning any at all?

superdeluxe 08-23-04 09:32 AM

Austin dude..people didnt believe him for a long long time..until he provided pictures.

Dabaomb 08-23-04 09:56 AM

It's hard to believe that PDJennings is running a distant second to Austin.

lotsofdvds 08-23-04 11:23 AM

Geez, and I thought I had a lot at 2000+...

flyboy 08-23-04 11:25 AM

Hey austin...do you have a online list of your collection?That would be neat to see...

QuiGonJosh 08-23-04 11:25 AM

anyone who has a part of their DVD collection titled "Worst Movies Ever" really needs to sell a lot of their crap!

1) There are only 7 movies in that section.
B) They're good movies to MST3K with your buddies. And they serve as good examples to show someone who has no idea what a bad movie really is. Each one is like a film class in bad moviemaking.

QuiGonJosh 08-23-04 11:33 AM

whatever man...if you want to MST3K some movies...then just get the MST3K sets...

Why would you MST3k movies they've already done? That's like saying "If you want to build your own house, hire Frank Lloyd Wright to build it for you."

On PD Jennings website he gives a reply to all the "Why do you own so many movies?" people. I think the jist of it was "It's my collection, so why should you care?"

Yeah, that didn't make much sense. I don't think I'd want to sit and mock a movie that's being mocked already.

I do not have a online listing. When I started to collect, there was no Internet and it would take me too much time to do such a list.
The reason I started to collect was that there were a lot of movie that the local rental stores did not have. Now that almost all of the video stores have folded (exception two small Blockbusters and one Hollywood) I am glad that I started this collection. Most of the stuff that I have is obscure and would not be in a rental place anyway ( I have around 100 movie serials for example)Many of them are also op and will probably never appear again such as the dozens of horror movies put out during the peak of the rental craze of the late 80s The only way to see these films is by hunting them down and purchasing them in flea markets, garage sales, and other places.

Austin I'm surprised that as a librarian, you do not have an online listing! You should take some more photos and post them.
