Question What SteelBook™ do you not EVER want to own?

We have all this talk about obtaining these gems .... but which Steels do you not EVER want to own ... be it Horrible movie, horrible cover art, or no native language for you /forced subs etc ...


I think for now, mine is Sweeny Todd ... too much of a musical for me and not that Im totally against musicals, this just wasnt the one for me.

I have no desire to own it.


What about you all?

I never want to own Forbidden Kingdom or Bangkok Dangerous. Absolutely horrible movies.

+1 for Sweeny Todd. I caught a little bit of it on the box a few weeks ago, and after about 10 minutes I changed the channel. I like Depp, definitely one of my favorite actors. But too much music for me

A few others would include:
Forbidden Kingdom
Righteous Kill
Bangkok Dangerous

I call it completist.
Being a glutton is a punishement?

I can respect the being a completist principle ... but multiple dipping on 10,000 B.C. takes it above and beyond ...

I would say... Sex and the City: The Movie, along with most of TF1's French movies, none appeal to me.

I have been tempted a few times by Sweeney Todd but I never gave in and I'm glad to say I don't think I will. Having seen (and hated) the movie, it was obviously just my completist impulses pushing me to get it.
Now, 10,000 BC I don't think I would ever want. The movie just sounds THAT bad.

Wreck's appreciation notwithstanding, run away...as fast as you can from 10,000 B.C. ... and as far as Righteous Kill I think the best analogy I heard for that one is that it was like watching Larry Bird play Magic Johnson 1 on 1, but not the 80's version of those two, but today's ...

I first bought 10,000 BC in Blu-Ray (amaray US) when I still expected something from that movie the 3 Steelbooks were just to add to my collection.

I'm trying to get all the Steelbooks in the World and I am selling my DVD Steelbooks on eBay.

Cheers,
Gui.

I recently just got into the whole scheme of steelbooks. I probably wouldn't mind adding ONE copy of 10,000 BC to the shelf as they don't appear to be super expensive. But I think most/all of my steelbooks are worthy to be opened and watched, and would like to keep the collection that way

If you want only one go for the German, really nice cover gold flaked.

Sex and the City. I never liked the show, and don't care to own it in ANY form for my collection.

I also liked 10,000 BC. It wasn't mind-blowing, but it was entertaining to me. I have yet to watch Righteous Kill, but now that I've heard that basketball analogy, I'm scared to. I really like the look of the sb, and even though it's region locked, I was going to eventually add the Region A disc in the sb case if I ever do actually pull the trigger on the sb. I have always been a fan of Deniro and Pacino, and I might get it anyways.

I'm not a fan of musicals, and when I first saw Sweeney Todd, I thought it was a little cheesy being that it was a musical. I've since watched it again, and the tunes are somewhat tolerable now for me. I also think Depp is great in it, and I love the look of the film. I doubt if I'll ever have any desire to want to run out and watch a broadway show, but Todd is okay for me now.

I could never want every blu-ray sb produced worldwide. Some are simply too identical for me to justify the purchase, and I'd rather spend the money on the next sb release I do want. Even if I had the means to do it (and I probably do if I really wanted to), I don't think I could. My wife and kids would toss me out the house with all of 'em if I did. If I was single, I'd probably still be as selective as I am now about steelbooks.

I know it's encoded to 1080i and that the extras are PAL, but it says Regions ABC on the cover.
