Excuse the crappy pics - I suck at taking pictures.

Also, my TV and music HDM aren't pictured as they are mixed in with my regular TV and music DVD's.

I didn't notice you posted a pic of your collection & I just asked you to do so, I didn't know someone could get so bent out of shape over it. I didn't "blast" anyone's collection, in fact I posted several times it's great seeing people post them. I had honest questions about certain buying habits, & I'm not the only one with those same feelings, I've never once critcized anoyne for what they buy. It is called an opinion, that is why I am here, at a forum, to share mine, others don't have a problem, you are the only one crying over people just voicing their opinions. Since that bothers you so much, the better question is "why are you here".

whatever dude. you didn't just simply ask to see a pic. or if that's how you speak to people just to ask them a question I guess you are a bigger douche than I thought

I snapped this a couple of weeks ago. Added a few since then, but you get the idea...

Talk about crying over nothing kiddo. I never once insulted anyone or called anyone any names the way you are, but if that makes you feel big enjoy it.

Robert George love the set-up, I just can't bring my anal-self to mixing the blues & the reds, but it really doesn't look that bad when they are.

I'm not posting a pic yet since my collection is soooo small (10 on the shelf and the four potters from amazon's BOGO on the way).

But, I can see what true_story and a few other posters are talking about with the excessive hd stuff - well, excessive to me, I suppose. I know if I had the money I'd be right there with you guys though (I've got a problem sometimes with collecting things). But as for me, I can't bring myself to spend more than $10 on any HD title. I have felt for a while that normal DVD releases that are nothing too special are worth no more than $5; $10 seems to be a good price point for HD's.

Anyway, awesome collections everyone. Maybe I'll post my small collection tomorrow, but it'll barely be visible :P

I can't speak for others, but I'd say at least 80% of my HDM collection are movies I owned on DVD or would have owned if HDM did not exist.

Sure, there are some releases I have because of the BOGO's (Music & Lyrics and Young Guns being a couple examples), but for the most part these are all films I would have owned anyway.

My DVD film collection still out numbers my HDM by about 2:1. And given the opportunity, I will replace every DVD film I have with HDM.

The problem with HDM is that since there are such few titles, you are compelled to pick up titles you normally wouldn't pick up with regular dvd. I know about 40 titles in my collection are blind buys from BOGO deals so it's not to bad but you can get stuck with some crappy titles such as The Wild and what not.

I got over this pretty quickly with regular DVDs, but I couldn't imagine wasting the money on HD media again (especially with the increased cost). I feel like a tool if I spend $20 on a title and end up disliking it.

It's the compulsive hoarding of media that developed with DVDs that's spilled over to HD. I see people with rows of unopened titles and makes me wonder if they actually enjoy watching the movies or just filling their shelf space with movie spines.

I thought I was the only one who was so anal-attentive to segregate their titles... good to see I'm not the only one

Is it wrong for me to make the BD's sit at the back of the bus?

I have fought myself a number of times with this problem... you should see how many times I stop and go... 'What are you doing buying that movie? You'd never buy that movie... Put it back!'

Not to mention I'm sure I've made a number of associates worried because I'm talking to Blue and Red cases.

Excellent collection Robert.
Thanks. I admit there are a few in there that I picked up early on that I likely wouldn't buy today, but that's the way it is when something is new .

Robert George love the set-up, I just can't bring my anal-self to mixing the blues & the reds, but it really doesn't look that bad when they are.
I'm all about love and happiness .

Actually, I try to treat both formats the same in emotional preparation for one winning and one losing. If I like them both equally, then I don't lose no matter what.

Love the Equilibrium one! I am bookmarking that site. Awesome!

Same here. Thats why I got a tattoo of both each of my arms...

If one loses - then I can always get the substitute for what I was originally going to get...

Winnie-the-Pooh.

Ohhh-yeah!

I actually tried sorting them in together, but couldn't stand it and separated them again. Hopefully I can get over this at some point and mix them together.

Yes, bring those to the front, immediately!

Hmmm....those blue and reds mingling the way that they are....something seems so wrong, yet OK at the same time.

Nice collection nothetheless, Robert. I like your philosophy, equal love as one will lose in the end (*sigh*), but I for one can't maintain 2 separate collections (blue and red)...I need a single collection - HD

Re: Show off your HDM Collection!

Is this going to be the official thread to post our collection ? or is there another thread dedicated for that. I been looking around if there was one but no luck in finding it.
