DVD and Blu-Ray Collecting
Does anyone out there still collect DVD's? I still do! It's starting to get weird since a lot of people simply download movies now -- both legally and illegally -- rather than buy the actual DVD. Personally, I still can't afford the equipment to directly download the film and put it on my TV. I'm still struggling to be able to upgrade to Blu-Ray. (NOTE: I don't plan on upgrading EVERY film I have to Blu-Ray. Only those I think will improve the viewing experience like films noted for their visual effects and cinematography)
What kinds of films do I collect on DVD (or, eventually, Blu-Ray)? Well, they're films I'd wanna see at least more than once or twice. Meaning, these are films that I not only like but LOVE. I like my DVD's to have lots of special features because they're like free film school lessons as well. I enjoy listening to commentaries and watching fun featurettes. I believe DVD is one of the best inventions ever for film lovers. Sure, lots of people prefer to download their films in great quality directly into their entertainment centers. But even then, still, I doubt DVD's are going away anytime soon. A lot of people still want something solid to hold on to, something you can just slip in the player to watch anytime you're in the mood.
Oh, here's my DVD collection: http://klaus-weasley.dvdaf.com/owned
