thank you!
I do have some hiphop documentaries.. wonder if that's gonna help differentiate. I have bit more Korean films but couldn't find it on the list

Apart from the probability that I'll never get around to watching them all, what is wrong with having 3000 DVDs? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm?

I have watched closed to all my disks. The only problem with 3,000 is where to put them. I have a back room (painting and putting places to put more this week) that was so full I had to work on it. I even started to put the case outside in my 30foot shed. Yes they are in books still.

Re: Rate My DVD Collection

Mine have turned into disorderly piles. It is one reason I'm seriously considering hacking away at this DVD collection and trading some in for Blu-rays. I average about 5-8 DVDs to 1 Blu ray in trade in value at my local store. Sounds awful, but it cuts down on numbers and is really a blessing in disguise.

This is why I started to put them in "Letter Books" it used to get to the point where I would get a "H" and have to move them all around.

Re: Rate My DVD Collection

Having over 3000+ DVDs is a hassle. I don't care what anyone says. At least I'll always have something to watch.

Re: Rate My DVD Collection

Anyone want to rate mine? I've updated it since my last post, getting rid of some titles and adding a few. It's not a very big collection and I know there are very few "classics" if any at all. I'm working on it though.

Re: Rate My DVD Collection

Wow, you're 22 and you have a collection exceeding 2500? Collections of this size are always quantity over quality. You've got alot of good TV shows and movies, but also own alot of junk (imo). I'd work on trimming your collection rather than adding to it. Only purchase stuff you genuinely love rather than buying everything that comes out.

I like how your question was finally answered over a year later.

what exactly is the number of movies that i should own before it's no longer "quantity over quality"?

Yeah, blanket statements like that are pretty much crap. Just because someone has some Hollywood hits in it, doesn't necessarily make it crap. They may have bought such things because they like them, people have different tastes/different strokes for different folks.

But to answer your question, it's 166.

I don't really feel the need to deal with it. I have my opinion and you have yours and I don't live in a world where I feel the need to always try and convert everyone that thinks differently to my line of thought. That's just my view on things in general.

Let's get this straight...I gave my opinion on someone's collection. You call me out on my opinion because it doesn't agree with yours. Now who's trying to convert who?

Here's another opinion of mine. The horror movies you watched for the horror challenge suck. Accept it and move on

Ive been told I have an odd way of collecting movies I pick an actor that I like and I buy all the movies that they have been in, because if a film has a cast that I like I will enjoy the film. And I fully admit I have some that may not be considered good/great by any means but they are all ones I enjoy watching, which to me makes them worth owning. I doesn't help that I get screener's to review and I work in a movie store/theater so I'm always getting new stuff to watch on top of that. Thank you for the review.

Re: Rate My DVD Collection

Not you, just the statement in general. Could you give more insight into what and why you think some titles are junk? You have some decent stuff in your collection but then you have some things that others might call junk, so I might be misinterpreting what you think is junk in his. If you tell him what he should be trimming out, he might find it useful.

That's fine you didn't like some movies I watched 4 months ago. I just find it odd that you own some that you say suck.

I think your collection is very diverse which is nice to see and I'm jealous of your Mystery Science Theater 3000 collection and it's always nice to see a good Doctor Who collection overall I think you have a great collection

How old are you and how many kids? It seems like you're older and have some kids as it's somewhat similar to mine.

We seem to have alot of the same SciFi/Fantasy/Horror DVDs, but since those are my favorite genres, we have little else in common. All in all it seems a well rounded collection, but that's coming from someone who doesn't amass many beyond their chosen genres. Maybe others whose tastes are more like yours (or wider in variety than mine) will pipe in with their thoughts? -kd5-
