Weirdest Film You Donít Own

Listening to a podcast on Ferris Buellerís Day Off this morning made me realize it might be the weirdest hole in my collection given that Iím very late gen x, love comedies especially from that time, and have over 1500 films. Love the film as much as most do just have never bought it.

The only competition not in my collection Iíve come up with is Big. I mean I own both Vice Versa and Like Father, Like Son Ö. Though never been as into Big as most itís easily better than either of those.

For those still collecting any weird missing films ?

The original Star Wars trilogy.

Iíve still never but the bullet and bought the Blu-ray set. I think somewhere along the way I got rid of both the VHS set and DVD set.

Society is pretty weird, yet I don't own it.

Dead Alive (I love horror comedies) because I sold the DVD planning to get the Blu-ray but didn't get it before it went OOP

I try to complete what I can from my favorite directors. I have everything officially released by Carpenter, Peckinpah, Cohen, Dante, Landis, Leone, Hill, Friedkin, DePalma, Tarantino, WrightÖ I just realized due to this thread that Iím missing The Age Of Innocence from Scorsese.

Given that I started my DVD collecting with Star Trek it’s a little odd that I don’t own every single series on disc but streaming has made it too easy to find and play a single episode at a time. I do have all the movies on DVD and some Blu-ray, and I also have the original 40 volume TOS collection plus the animated series on DVD.

Star Trek was one of my first obsessions, and still one of my ďfavorite thingsĒ, and one of the very few things I ever bought on VHS.

So when I got into DVDs buying Star Trek content has been a regular and frequent occurrence. I have almost everything Trek related on disc, but havenít always rushed to buy everything, especially the newer stuff. Like you, the easy availability of it streaming has me slowing my purchases. Maybe even quitting someday I guess.
