What decade do you own the most of on BD?

I've been wondering this lately as my BD collection grows from it's material in the 1940s.

So...What decade do you own the most of on BD?

Mine is the 2000s. Which makes sense due to my youth.

According to my blu-ray.com stats, 26.1% of my collection is from the 2000s.

Which makes sense due to my youth.

2nd place: '80s with 21.5%.

Having a small collection I believe it's a tie between '70s and '80s; I have four from each.

Is Raging Bull one of those in the 1980s that you do own?

I figured most of mine (I own 139) would be in the '80s (high school) or '90s (college), but surprisingly, 47.1% are from the 2000s.

Only 8% are from the '80s.

The day after I got my player Raging Bull was the third Blu-ray purchase I made after Die Hard and Taxi Driver.

Made me curious, so I checked. 2000s for me as well. Otherwise my BD collection is pretty balanced.

50s/60s - 11%
70s - 11%
80s - 13 &
90s - 13%
00s - 33%
10s - 18%

Taxi Driver is a fucking great BD. Reference material right there when working on older films.

I'm not being rude but what has made you to stop at the 50s in terms of decades for film?

Agreed. I'm very happy that they ported over the commentary track from the Criterion LaserDisc.

Just time and money. My BD collection is fairly small (around 100). I have older films on DVD, but none on BD yet.

Without looking, I'd probably say 1970s. I've got a bit of recent stuff too, mostly from the reviewing.

Of my 656 (counting TV seasons as 1), only 9 are BDs. With the exception of 1 from 1981 and 1 from 2005, the remainder of the BDs I own so far are from 2011/12. -kd5-

I would guess pretty equally between the 90's and 2000's.

Re: What decade do you own the most of on BD?

Years 2001-2010 - At least 138 Blu-Rays. I am going to some more counting later, have to finish helping the wife put away the Christmas ordainments.

This is somewhere between 40% to 50% of all of the BRs I own.

This was a little higher than I thought it would be.

%
17.9 2010
44.3 2000
17.4 1990
9.4 1980
4.8 1970
2.3 1960
2.0 1950
1.0 1940
1.0 1930

1144 titles (or discs) according to blu-ray.com

Makes sense if you've been buying BDs for a few years, that all new releases would be in BD and you might only upgrade your favorites from years past.

I never really checked by decade. According to my DVD Profiler the 2000's. Then the 1990's. Followed by the 1960's.

Re: What decade do you own the most of on BD?

I'm going to guess 2000's only because of the availability of new releases vs. catalog titles which I like. Plus it seems the movies I liked growing up don't hold up well when I see them today. I was remembering them through rose colored glasses

Same here. It's also 2000's for me but that's only because of availability.

I do own more from the 60's than the 70's or 80's.
