You Just Might Have a DVD Problem if ...

When your six year old tells you that he/she prefers the full screen format to anamorphic widescreen format and you send her to bed … you just might have a DVD problem.

If your wife begged you (unsuccessfully) to see Moulin Rouge but you counted the days to the DVD release … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you feel the need to lie to even anonymous people on the Internet - downgrading the number of DVDs you really own … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you look forward to seeing the movie (the second time) on DVD more than seeing it the first time at the movies … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you bought a movie that you didn’t really like simply because you heard it had great bonus features … you might have a DVD problem.

If you started a thread on the Internet asking for when Fellowship Of The Rings is coming out on DVD and the movie wasn’t even out yet … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you are thinking about living on pet food just so you can purchase a region-free DVD player … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you bought Eisenstein - The Sound Years – and you don’t even know what The Sound Years are let alone who the heck Eisenstein was … you might have a DVD problem.

If you swing the conversation over to when the uncut edition of the Boondock Saints will be available in Region 1 with the additional two minutes like it is in Japan ….. at your son’s hockey game … you might have a DVD problem.

If you bought the special edition, collector’s edition, the ultimate edition (rated) and the ultimate edition (unrated) of American Pie and you didn’t even like the movie … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you purchased a used version of The 400 Blows for $400 on Ebay … just to fill out your Criterion Collection … when a perfectly good version by another distributor is available for $25 new … well you just might now understand what 400 Blows really means ..and you might just have a DVD problem.

If you wanted to deck some guy on the Internet for his opinion of snap cases versus keep cases … you might have a DVD problem.

If you bought two copies of The Beyond just because at $14.99 the special edition tin seemed like such a deal … well you just might have a DVD problem.

If you bought a round of drinks to celebrate the news that Willy Wonka would be coming out in widescreen after all … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you stay up late searching the latest DVD, pressing up, down, left, and right searching for “hidden” Easter eggs … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you enthusiastically responded to the question – your favorite five DVD menus from 2001 … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you’re posted so many posts on DVDTalk that you’ve been given the status “DVD Talk Evangelist” -- you might just have a DVD problem.



Guys, just for fun … hopefully we can laugh at ourselves a little bit …

With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy …

I can relate to the following :

If your wife begged you (unsuccessfully) to see {insert movie here} but you counted the days to the DVD release … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you look forward to seeing the movie (the second time) on DVD more than seeing it the first time at the movies … you just might have a DVD problem.

If you bought a movie that you didn’t really like simply because you heard it had great bonus features … you might have a DVD problem.

I think I may have a DVD problem.
Whew, they say just admitting it is half the battle...

How about:
if you have trouble sleeping on Monday nights because you're so excited about the next day's releases...you may have a DVD problem.

If your six year old knows what anamorphic widescreen format is... he just might have a DVD problem.

If you're ever agonized over how to organize or display your DVDs... you just might have a DVD problem.

If you know exactly when your favorite unreleased DVD is coming out, but forget your the date of your anniversary... you just might have a DVD problem.

DVD problem bad!

If while watching the deleted scenes on the Criterion version of This Is Spinal Tap you feel a strange burning sensation...

Oh, wait, sorry.

That's an STD problem.

If you buy Johnny Nuemonic on SuperBit collection, even though you know the movie SUCKED, just to have it on SuperBit...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you have stacks, and stacks of DVDs waiting for months to be entered in DVDProfiler...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you can randomly list every film being released on DVD for the next six consecutive weeks...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you can remember the exact price you paid, and the deal you got on any particular DVD in your collection...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you hide the credit card bills for all the DVD puchases the previous month...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you rush home to get to the mailbox first, or happen to work nights and set your alarm to get up in the middle of the day to get the mail before your wife/girlfriend/significant other can see what you've ordered...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you have a conversation with a fellow DVD collector on a break at work talking about special features, ultimate editions, the deal you got on a DVD etc...and your co-workers look at you like you are some kind of super freak from outer space...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you are on your computer, and check back & refresh DVD Talk more than six times an hour...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you started collectin DVDs a year after your friend turned you on to them, and have since surpassed their total collection, and you enjoy great pleasure in this fact...you might just have a DVD problem.

If you work the night shift at the Post Office, and call your friend "tool" and "stick" all night, and your names are Jason and Shane...you absolutely, positively without-a-doubt have a DVD problem!

If you have several hundred DVD movies in your collection and still can't find something you want to watch, you may have a DVD problem.

If you can extrapolate every date's day of the week for the next 6 months by using Tuesdays as a guide (ie "March 19 is a release date so March 21 must fall on a Thursday".)

If you read that list and nodded your head a lot... you just might have a DVD problem.

I read this a long time ago...

You spend so much money on DVDs that your wife puts you on a monthly budget on November 15, and by January 9 you've already spent your budget through May 15 ... you just might have a DVD problem.

Some of the replies made me laugh and think ... I wish I had wrote that ....

Thought that I would include a few more:

If you put your DVDs into Case Logic binders just to fool your wife about just how many DVD you really have … you might have a DVD problem

If no one dares to check your DVD listing on DVD Affectionado because it takes so long to load … you just might have a DVD problem

If you’ve set DVDTalk as your home page … you just might have a DVD problem

Is this a problem?
