Ugh, my wife does the same thing. I'll walk in, pull the film off the shelf, put it on her lap, and ask: Why aren't you just watching this?
Yeah, looking good, looking sweet.

A lot of my Blus. I buy them all the time and then put them in the player for a quick preview, but while I own the Blu-Ray player of the house I don't own the HD-TV, and my dad just wants to watch crappy TV (in SD, even) so I rarely ever get to pop in a BD (I collect mostly animation, and he doesn't like that very much).

Out of my collection, I haven't come around to watching..

Bambi (sep. 2012)
Cinderella (dec. 2012)
The Lion King (feb. 2012)
Peter Pan (dec. 2012)
Pocahontas (apr. 2012)
Princess and the Frog (nov. 2012)
Snow White (jul. 2012)
Tangled (oct. 2012)
Winnie the Pooh (oct. 2012)

So I guess The Lion King is the "winner" among my BDs.

Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest [Blu-ray]
Order Placed: May 27, 2007
Shipped on May 29, 2007

I like using's "new" feature to keep track of which discs I haven't watched. These days I don't order as many titles because I don't have the money, but I'll order a crapload over Black Friday when titles hit 3.99 and sure it may take several months before I get around to watching them. They're not going anywhere, they're going to last my whole lifetime. I have young children so I will have way more time to watch Blu-ray Discs 18 years from now than I do right now, and how much better quality do I need for "Wedding Crashers" than 1080p with lossless audio? Some things don't need to be upgraded, even if I do have a 4K3D OLED 20 years from now.

Movie buffs watches the movies in their collection, not buy them to use for decoration, to impress other people, or buy thousands of blu-rays just because they can afford it. When you finally get around watching those movies (if ever, it's been 6 years already) you better hope none of those blu-rays and HD-DVDs are defected because if they are, you're out of luck!
Sometimes you also buy a product to vote with your dollars, back in the format war I purchased quite a few titles I may not normally have bought just to help with sales figures...I wanted to help make sure one side won so that we wouldn't be stuck with 720p downloads wth lossy 5.1 Dolby after both sides caved in. I certainly couldn't afford it, but felt like I couldn't afford not to as well. As a movie buff I wanted to help make sure the titles I really wanted, like Godfather, Arabia, Star Wars, etc., would see a viable format to be released on.

I went through my collection and realised that I have around 35 movies that I haven't watched even once (on any format/theater let alone BD! ).

There is so much backlog with new BDs coming in every month ! Am I the only one with this problem?

Some of these are so bad that looking back on it, I'm wondering why I bought them in the first place while some of them are regarded as being so good that I can't believe I haven't watched them yet!
I end up spending an hour deciding what to watch and by the time I select a BD, it's dinner time!

My list (I bought some of these like Black Hawk Dawn 3 years ago!!) :

Optoma HD66 Projector | 140 Inch Matte White Screen | Polk 7.1 System: TSi 300, CS20, DSW500 | Onkyo HT-RC270 receiver
PC (Nvidia GTX 460, 8GB RAM, Intel Core i5, 32inch Sony Bravia as Monitor) | PS3 | XBOX360 | PS4 | Ultimate Ears 900 earphones
LG 55inch Passive 3D TV | Sony HTiB 5.1 | Apple TV 3 | Apple Airport Express | iPad Air | iPhone 5 | iPod Classic | Macbook Air (mid 2012) |
Philips Hue mood lighting | Nvidia 3D Vision
