I made a deliberate decision to only introduce the 40,000th post winner.

I post too much here as it is; nearly 17% of all the comments in this thread are from me.

There's only one other that posts here more than I do.

I'm enjoying being on the 2001 page.

My Christmas seems to have just arrived and it's only on STREAMING...

Pink Floyd release 18 live albums to streaming services.

Finished S2 of Picard on BD last night. I watched first episode of 1923 on P+ and newest episode of Tulsa King, also on P+.

Will start S3 of Creepshow on BD before I finally wrap up the Discovery of Witches box set on BD. I will most likely get into Lower Decks on BD once I finish these two sets.

All I hear is your attempt at the justification of obsessive behavior - buying movies you don't watch. That makes no financial sense at all.
Most collectors are not investing. Most of the comic book collections people have they will be lucky to get 2 cents on the dollar. the toy sets aren't going to be flipped by most people. People just like to collect and look at old things and find utility in displaying stuff.

I don't see much difference between somebody framing a comic they like vs never opening and displaying a nice collectors edition steel book.

Anyway the reason most of us own movies we never end up watching is because they are cheaper that way. it would cost 35 dollars to buy a 4k steelbook release day and perhaps 80 or 100 dollars after its out of print. I just bought 12 for 60 dollars because of the deal being available though i doubt i will watch many of those anytime soon.

It is a bit weird to buy a film that is a piece of shit that you don't want to ever watch... yet I still own the last jedi for some reason

I think collecting is in the blood. I've got movies that I know I will never see. It's not because I don't want to watch them but simply because I buy at a faster rate than I view. If I never purchased another film it would take me 15-20 years to get through the titles I currently own. Even though I am now retired I still only watch around 200-250 movies a year. This includes theatrical and streaming. I've been buying around 300 discs a year so I am forever behind. I do buy a lot of "limited" editions but not with the thought that I can one day sell them for a profit. I just like collecting.

So do you guys ever buy an extra copy of a blu ray because of a good price or for the packaging like a steelbook? I saw a good 5 dollars each deal on like 8 4k blu ray steelbooks that I already owned in the standard 4k packaging but I bought them anyway because i could not resist the deal.

I also remember buying like 3 copies of toy story 3 at one point because I wanted a digital copy and rolling the dice on a used copy a few times was still cheaper then buying it new once or buying the digital by itself lolz.

I'm not fond of steelbooks in particular though they can be great. I only rebuy if the I'm upgrading to a better format or master.

I don't have a huge collection of steelbooks but I do buy the occasional one if it's a film I really love and the artwork looks great, even though I'll also have the normal blu-ray release.

The first ones I bought a few years back were all Vincent Price movies:





My last purchases were the Henry Fonda western Once Upon A Time In The West, and one I imported from the USA called The Living Dead At Manchester Morgue. Fortunately for me, the latter was region-free and I thought the artwork was gorgeous:

Yeah, mixed bag for me. Some steelbooks look classy, others a bit cheap. I have the steels of Old, Malignant, Sweeney Todd, Nightmare Alley, Skyfall, The Howling, Matrix Ressurections and The Town That Dreaded Sundown. The latter and Malignant look a bit cheap looking.

I use the My Movies Pro (4) app. Scan the barcode and you are usually done. Sometimes you have to edit the sort title though. This eliminates the chance of buying a title a second time as you can always refer to it if and when you see a good deal on something. I also have a filter of titles I have not seen, so I can choose that group if I am in the mood for a first time viewing. Plus I can sort by run time to know what I have time for, which comes in handy often. I donít consider this a lot of work, but more so having technology actually save me time and work. I am sure other programs and apps do similar things, but I have been pretty pleased with this one over the years.

That's the one I use as well. Very easy to use and great sort features.

Tulsa King is great. Hopefully it will stick around a while.

I am happy to pay a few pounds extra if itís a good quality steel. Love the steel for ĎOldí for example.

1: to commit (money) in order to earn a financial return
2: to make use of for future benefits or advantages
If we stick with #1 I agree with you. But it is still an investment by #2. I am investing in having the joy of watching what I want to watch when I want to watch it with no effort, and if something bad happens and I am ever financially constrained I will always be able to watch my collection.

My unwatched shelf keeps on shrinking and growing but I try and keep it in check a bit. There are some movies that will be OOP and others that are in fancy packaging that is limited but for the most part there might be a better deal on it in a few months so the frugal side of me would rather wait a bit when my unwatched gets too big. for me the sweet spot is between 30 and 80.

I have bought the same movie because I had forgot I ordered it already and
I have bought a fancier edition because it was fancier but never intentionally just to have multiple copies of the film

I have not purchased an extra copy just to have a steelbook. I like steelbooks and I sometimes buy them when initially acquiring a title, but that's it. I make no special effort to get them unless there is a functional advantage like avoiding stacked discs.

I have purchased extra copies to have a back-up on hand in a few rare instances. The only ones that come to mind are these:

and I bought this one as a back-up . These blu-rays preserve the blue tinting of Elrond's prophecy about Arwen and Aragorn's future together that Peter Jackson changed to nearly black and white for the new 4K and the new blu-ray editions.

I also have backed-up and with this set



What can I say? I loves me some Middle Earth movies.

I also purchased a back-up of by adding this . I hated the packaging of the first set, so I got another one. Twin sets of Twin Peaks.

I actually loved the original packaging of TP.

I own the boxset of LOTR, very nice package.
