i have realized that i am not much of a movie person... i love them but movies require your whole attention. sometimes for 3 hours..too much for me.

i much prefer collecting music. i can multitask with music and to be honest my ears have always been better than my eyes. my money is going to music from now on.
I collect vinyl records in addition to blu-rays. I feel that it's just as rewarding and sometimes more so, but I wouldn't want to give up either. I'd rather split my money and time between two things I enjoy rather than focusing all my attention on one thing, but that just me. I tend to go all out when I get into a new hobby, which usually results in me losing interest not long after--having multiple hobbies helps to prevent me from getting burned out from them.

As to the original question, I've loved movies for as long as I can remember, so I can't anticipate ever giving up collecting entirely. Sure, I go through periods of buying more or not buying as much, but I can't ever foresee selling off my collection entirely.

While I respect the opinions of people who decide they need to sell off the majority of their collections, I could just never do it.

I realize that the money I spent could have been better served for other purposes but my personal feeling is that I spent the money when I could afford to do so and it's already gone. Selling them will only get back pennies on the dollar so I might as well keep them and go forward spending less.

I have friends who sell and then end up re-buying. Now that is a waste because they end up losing allot more money in the process.

Allot of the titles on my wishlist now are movies that haven't been announced. I'd like to think I'll be slowing down soon but the wife would probably laugh if she read this.

I kind of feel the same way, although I do sell/trade my DVDs to go towards new Blu-ray purchases. For the longest time I thought it was a stupid decision based on what others told me, but usually I can take a stake of 7-10 DVDs and get a free Blu-ray (sometimes 2 if there's a sale). Since my default these days is to reach over to the Blu-ray since, I don't mind getting rid of DVDs....I mean, I gotta make room, otherwise I will have to say "enough is enough" for a while.

I am the same way. I sell or use the DVDs for upgrade and save's after I have obtained the Blu ray version of it. I'm not big on getting rid of anything that I don't yet have another version of. Part of my OCD.

OCD kindred spirits, hahaha
I understand you on that point, but I'm actually learning how to let stuff go, which is somewhat therapeutic for me. I just start to doubt myself only when someone goes "But, that's out of print" which I hesitate, but in the end...everything will be out of print eventually. Besides, I'm in grad school and I don't make hardly any money, so DVDs help me get the new stuff for cheap (or free mostly). If I TRULY want it back, I'll get it back when I pick up financially.

I keep my collection relatively small and rarely blind buy, so I doubt I'll ever have this problem.

It pays to take caution even when evaluating whether or not to purchase a newly-released restoration of an obscure cult film, though. I found this out the hard way on DVD a few times.
"This horror film was only in theaters for a week, and has been unseen by the masses, but it is generally acknowledged as one of the primary influences of the Friday the 13th series...", etc. etc. etc.
I would buy a DVD along these lines, watch it that night, and realize that the reason this particular movie "was only in theaters for a week, and has been unseen by the masses" is because the movie sucks.
This. I went through a ton of obscure cult DVDs from Blue Underground, Anchor Bay, Something Weird, Mondo Macabro, Severin, etc. before truly realizing that the bulk of these movies, as curious as some of them may have been, are probably better left read about, not watched. Most of them just plain stunk, actually, and the few that were entertaining in a train wreck kind of way I typically only watched a second time and not again. Just way too much money for curious but ultimately crappy movies. I don't mind "so bad it's good", but I don't have to spend $15-$20 a pop to OWN these kinds of movies, either. If Something Weird had a Redbox, I'd be very interested. But that's about it.

No offense to people who like these films. I was into this stuff for YEARS. But as the discs piled up and the money continued to be spent, I just realized that I didn't care for this stuff anymore. There's still a passing interest in some of the weirder stuff, but it's no longer something I care about enough to spend good money on.

Eh, I've been cutting back, as I need a new car, and I'm moving. I'm still buying, but I'm on hiatus for the next few months (at least once I get the Ghibli releases in May, those are the only titles I'm getting between now and August/September), as I have a whole slew of BDs and DVDs to watch, plus I have a netflix acccount, uncapped internet, and unblock us. I'm not lacking for content to watch, as I'm not as fussy about PQ as some people on this forum are. Some of the stuff I enjoy viewing only comes in DVD/VHS/streaming etc., which shouldn't prevent someone from watching it just because it's not Blu-ray.

I've started have this compulsion to buy more blus as well. I recently went on a little buying frenzy. In the past week, I've ordered 8 movies. One of them came today. I'm expecting the other 5 packages to come over the course of the this week and next. I do keep myself from feeling buyer's remorse by hunting for deals and mostly picking quality films that I know I want in my collection.

My most wanted blu-rays: 1. Bringing Up Baby (1938) 2. Mr. Holland's Opus (1995) 3. Dead Presidents (1995) 4. The Blue Dahlia (1946) 5. Criss Cross (1949) 6. Gaslight (1944) 7. Dangerous Minds (1995) 8. This Gun For Hire (1942) 9.Roman Holiday (1953) 10. Beavis and Butthead: Do America (1995) 11. Above the Rim (1993)

Yeah, I buy a new movie & watch it once & that's it (but there are a few exceptions), it's mostly 40s 50s & 60s films I love to buy & own, & generally they don't cost much. So far this year I've only bought a handful of films, been buying more TV box sets.

Never. And there are a few reasons:

1) I'm a collector. I was the same with comics when I used to read them. I HAD to have every Wonder Woman or Batman or Justice League or Nightwing or whatever. Every Wednesday I would walk to LCS with my friend and we would get all the stuff we wanted. Heck, some of them have never been read to this day, but it didn't matter. It was the process of collecting even more than enjoying the content in a lot of cases. It's the same with Blu-rays. There are people with a collector's mentality, who will understand. And those without one, to whom it seems insane.

2) I don't really spend my money on anything else, not significantly anyway. And it's not like I'm going to be getting anything letting it sit in my checking account earning a massive 1.5% interest, or whatever Chase is doling out this year. Might as well spend it on stuff that I will enjoy.

3) Finally, this is how I see most new films. I rarely get to the theater. And honestly, buying the Blu-ray is a better investment anyway. Between the cost of a ticket, a medium Coke, and a beer afterwards the Blu-ray costs less in the end, and I can watch whenever I want, and some of them have great extras. Plus, often, the theater experience is, well, not good. Though I have been rather lucky lately as far as that's concerned.

This is why, even though I'm a huge fan of European cinema from the mid-20th century, the majority of my Blu-rays are from the 2000s and 2010s. It's how I usually see movies anymore.

4) Oh, and one I forgot: There are some terrific box sets, usually from boutique labels like Criterion, where I can get, say, six Jacques Demy films, beautifully presented with fun and interesting extras.

So for me, anyway, enough is never enough.

Yep, I'm the same way. I'll watch newer movies on Netflix or an occasional RedBox rental and 95% of the time I'm disappointed. Movies today are awful. It's mostly about remakes, reboots, endless sequels, dumbed down, childish comic book themes, made for people with the attention spans of cats and ridiculous and constant special effects (audio and visual).

I'm also extremely turned off by American movies, and TV shows, becoming more and more less American and more globalized. Sure in the past we always had occasional foreign actors, actresses and directors, but the situation today is beyond ridiculous. No offense to anyone but it's like what they did to the Ford Mustang, they brought in a foreign designer to make the Mustang less American and more "European,' reducing the appeal of the car based on its Americanness, which is what made it desirable to some foreign markets in the first place. The same goes for a country's movies and TV shows. And as an American, and I'm not interested in a political discussion, I hate to see an important part of my country's culture being given away and outsourced.

I got to stage with my DVD collection in 2005 where I kind of stopped as I'd got all my favourites, and was just waiting for MIA titles to fill gaps.

Still have a ways to go with Blu-ray. which is the fun bit really

Just buy the films you know you want to watch and rewatch. Sell/give away the ones you don't. Simple.

I keep my Blu-ray collection in a large walk-in closet in the upstairs guest bedroom of my home.

When the floor starts to sag from the weight of my collection, I'll say, “Enough is enough.”

I'll reach the "Enough is Enough" point when I run out of room (which isn't too far off), but I could actually modify put forth the effort and modify these shelves or build custom shelves to make more room. I don't buy as much as I used to, so this little bit of space should last me until next year.

And I could get rid of some things. I've though about doing another small clean-through of my library to donate.

I converted a small room in our house to a "Billy Room" with all my shiny disks in it (including CDs); but I had to disappointingly double stack on a number of shelves - including my Criterion ones [I can only see half of them ] and now the other shelves' contents are being obscured by ones sitting in front of them.

This tells me its time to stop... but can I?

Giving consideration to taking all of the DVDs and CDs and putting them in a storage case, with the sleeves stored in wallets or similar. Question to anyone who has done that already: do you throw away or recycle the empty cases, or store them somewhere?
If I was a duck I'd go quack.
