Ever think you have it all, then there is something else you need, now?

i'm talking the older releases, not new and upcoming which of course we all obsess over and need as well.

whenever I think i have all the dvd's i could possibly ever need and want, there is some title that gets in my head that i just have to have now. you know i still scan the aisles at BB, look down Target's limited aisles, never see anything, then a day or two later, i get this urge or feeling that i have to see and have something that i never thought twice about a year ago, especially if it is at a reasonable price. it is such a weird and sometimes unsettling feeling.

couple weeks ago, i saw "Fargo/Rain Man" (Double Feature) @ Target, saw it, saw it had the SE features, but really didn't want to get it. i am not all that enamorate of the movie, "Fargo". so, i never really wanted them before. saw them on tv a few times and it was meh.

then, i was like i really want to see "Fargo" again. what with "No Country for Old Men" out Tuesday and figured i would give it another chance. then i rationalized i would like to see "Rain Man" sometime soon. and mind you this all happens in my head in mere minutes as opposed to this convuluted story.

so i got it the very next day i think about it. and this happens all the time with other older titles that i don't think twice about, then all of a sudden...

this happen to anyone else?

It used to happen to me a lot. But I don't pay attention to sales anymore. I only pay attention to re-issued catalog titles and new releases. I pretty much have everything I want.

Welcome to hyper-consumerism. "Enough" is always at least one purchase away.

What person honestly believes they own all the movies they'll ever want (not counting new movies)?

this op sounds familiar in a out-of-context, deja-vu sorta way.

I'm contemplating the 3-disc "Titanic" SE. I heard the 2-disc is no better of a transfer and is one disc less of extras.

I already own the 1-disc, and wonder if it's good enough quality to suit my rare viewing.
But don't watch that movie much. I do enjoy having the entire movie on one disc.

You stopped me at the "Ever think you have it all" part of the question. My want list is a mile long. And just as I think I've made some decent headway, a large number of more films get added.

It's a sickness; for that I am certain.

Same here. I've never thought I have it all and I doubt that I ever will.

The only thing I've noticed lately is browsing the DVDs and not finding anything that catches my attention. The problem is I'm in that strange in-between period where I no longer want to buy on DVD, but can't find anything interesting on HD. There's interesting stuff out there of course, but when I shop locally, I can't seem to find anything. But that doesn't mean I have it all, just that the place I'm shopping has poor selection.
