I've really cut back as they release fewer and fewer titles I'm interested. I find myself moving more towards the Arrow and Shout/Scream releases.
There's also a lot of stuff here I've picked up at the B&N sales or at thrift stores that I need to watch and list on eBay.

Re: How many Criterion do you own?

No idea, probably north of 200 on BD. I was never that into Criterion on DVD and only buy films of deep interest from their catalog.

Re: How many Criterion do you own?

According to what I list on Criterion.com, 50 in DVD/Blu. One is a duplicate, Carnival of Souls, the rest are unique.

Probably close to that in Laserdisc, but many more duplicates as I upgraded a lot of Criterion LDs with Criterion Blus, skipping the DVD stage on most.

Re: How many Criterion do you own?

About 23 single and 4 multiple movie box sets = 43 movies on BluRay and 15 single and 1 multiple movie box set = 21 movies on DVD.

Re: How many Criterion do you own?

For some reason I thought I had eBayed all my Criterions (I did not have many to begin with), but it turns out that I still have the Blu The Before Trilogy, and the Lone Wolf & Cub set. Only 2 Criterion Blus, but quality sets, the both of them.

I've got 26 DVDs, including 7 Eclipse sets, and 121 Blu-rays, including several multi-movie sets such as Essential Fellini, The Complete Jacques Tati, Dietrich & von Sternberg in Hollywood, and The Essential Jacques Demy.

Re: How many Criterion do you own?

Probably almost 100. Most are the old DVDs. 4 of them are blus. This shows my reduced buying.

Re: How many Criterion do you own?

1 - through around 900 or so, but I kind of lost the thread during the pandemic for some reason. I wonder if I'll be able to regain my momentum given my vastly reduced purchasing habits..

Re: How many Criterion do you own?

Thanks for adding the poll, Adam, and I hope people take it.

I decided to vote in my current bracket of 25-49 as I'm at 40 and I think it will still take a while to get to 50.

I still have the Chasing Amy and Armageddon dvds. I'd like to get the Police Story set and The Breakfast Club.
