I was kind of hoping this would work but it doesn't look like it.

Meanwhile, here is my (incomplete) listing of owned DVD's:

I hope that everyone shares their DVD's as well.

I recently was given The Dark Knight and Prince Caspian on Blu-Ray. Another friend gave me TDK in standard dvd too, so I gave that one away. I've been meaning to get Wanted. Oh and I was also given Friends Season 4.

I'll list my collection later, but im sure that it'll be one of the smaller collections here.

I got a blu-ray for xmas, so started buying some of those...I got The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford for xmas, then bought The Aviator and Letters from Iwo Jima after, and currently have Unforgiven coming via Amazon. I also got the standard DVD's for Once, The Films of Kenneth Anger Vol. 2, and Possible Films: The Short Films of Hal Hartley.

Looking to get Natural Born Killers on Blu-ray, but so far they only have the regular edition and no directors cut available, so I may wait...

The only movies I buy (or ask for) on DVD are movies I give a (high) 9 or a 10, which only amounts to four or five titles per year.

For Xmas, I got Wall-E and Dark Knight, will soon be getting Eagle Eye, and am contemplating getting Horton Hears a Who and Death Race.

My wife got Mamma Mia! AND made me sit through it. Oh, my heads...

Hmm, maybe we should create a separate thread for our favourite DVD extra.

anyway, I had a spreadsheet of my DVDs but my PC died two weeks ago. While I'm waiting for it to be fixed, for Christmas I got the following

Life of Brian 2-disc edition (Finally!)
Lust, Caution
Ed Wood
Sunset Boulevaard
The Stanley Kubrick Remastered Collection (I had them all already but wanted the cool extras)

My partner is away for the holidays so I'm expecting some more dvd delights shortly

I usually keep this list with me at all times because you never know when you're going to find a good bargain and I hate it when I can't remember if I own a DVD or not.

I rarely pay more than $10 for a DVD, and when I see DVDs for $5 or less I often take a chance on movies I haven't seen, which helps explain a few movies I'm slighty embarressed to admit I own.

I was going to get the five-disc Blade Runner from Best Buy but they only had the four-disc so I got what I ended up getting.

So my latest purchases:

At Big Lots:
Hellboy: Director's Cut (three-disc) $3.00 (yes, I found an out-of-print set that usually costs at least $30 for $3.00)
An American Werewolf In London (Special Edition) $3.00
Action: The Complete Series $3.00 (I really liked this show when it first aired and it sucks that Fox didn't ever give it a chance)

At Target:
Spaceballs (Special Edition) $5.50
The Full Monty (Special Edition) $5.50
The Commitments (Special Edition) $5.50
Family Guy Volume 6 $14.99

And I think my spending spree is at a close. Until the next big sale of used DVD's and rare titles at low prices comes around.

That sounds interesting. One of my favourite underrated directors.

I have been meaning to get around to listing all my DVDs for ages. You have just given me a reason to actually DO IT. Thanks Buscemi. Give me a little bit of time and I'll post. In the meantime the DVDs I was given for Xmas were :-
Sweeney Todd : The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (movie only - no extras at all Sad Mad )
Spiderman 3 - 2 disc edition (truthfully speaking it was the kids who got this, but we keep a family collection - we don't separate ownership of DVDs in our family)
Saw IV
The Dead Zone - Season 1

Watched the first 2 so far.

Well, I haven't paid a cent on any of the previous dvds, and got this for Christmas, so I'm not out of pocket. I'd been waiting for years for this release, and I'm very pleased to finally have it.

I'll try to get around to posting my dvds on here, but I have around about 400 dvds here in NZ, with probably a similar amount still back in the UK. I can't remember exactly what titles I have back in the UK though....

For X-Mas/B-Day:

Kung Fu Panda 2 Disc
The Dark Knight steelbook
Tropic Thunder 2 disc
Step Brothers 2 disc
The Incredibles 2 disc (for some reason, I never buy animated movies on my own. I think its because they're never cheap. I mean, I can find Antz for $5, but The Lion King 2 disc? The Toy Story 2pack? Those things are never cheap, even used.)

Purchased in the last month or so:

The Babysitters (blind buy from Wal-Mart for $10)
Planet Terror 2 disc, $7.50 from Target
Almost Famous SE, $5 from Wal-Mart
Sold Out: A Threevening with Kevin Smith, full price the day it came out
Atonement
Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
Lars & The Real Girl
Walk Hard SE
(4 for $20 from Blockbuster)


All WS, of course Very Happy

Now....who will be the first to post pictures of their entire collection? I'll take some updated ones tomorrow after work.

The reason why you never see Disney animated films for cheap (unless they're the bad DTV sequels) is that it's a collector's market and the collectors will pay top dollar for those titles. In fact, I wonder how much an original DVD of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs could sell (I bought one used in 2003 for $14.99, the DVD is out-of-print but a new version is coming in 2009/2010 so I may sell it and upgrade). Same with a 2003 Sleeping Beauty DVD (bought that the same day new for $16.99, want to upgrade to the new one with the wider aspect ratio and the John Lassiter commentary).

I've always been pissed off about this. I hate buying movies for more than $10. I rarely ever do. But Disney Classics are always 20 bucks, if you can even find them. Because you are right, people will buy them. They are collector's items. Its so unfair to the consumers, but Disney is out to make money and they are very good at it. I hate it, but that's the way of the world. Glad my gf got me the Lion King 2-Disc for Christmas, and she had to get it on Ebay

I actually got all three of them when they first came out. I had a Disney kick at the time and own at least twenty of the films in the Disney Animated Features canon, many of them in their original releases. However, I'll need to upgrade some of those.

Aren't Disney DVDs always expensive because they use the 'vault,' or whatever the hell they call it? Release stuff for a limited time only, or really restrict the number of copies available?

My additions to my collection over Christmas / my birthday:

Hancock 2-disc
Atonement
21
Iron Man
The Italian Job

Good thread.


I picked up Tropic Thunder, Kung Fu Panda, and Indy and the Temple of Doom at the Blockbuster bargain bin.

I did pick up Wall-E and The Dark Knight early on though.

Did you get the director's cut of Tropic Thunder? And if so, tell us what the new ending is (as it may be known, I was wanting a more downbeat ending and even created a new ending on the old forum).

If one of Tropic Thunder's goals was to satirize Hollywood in general, don't you think the 'tie everything up neatly' ending might be purposeful?
