Blind buying has been 50/50 for me.

There have been times when I found movies that I ended up loving like Tomb Raider, Dredd, Overlord, The BlackKKlansman, Anna, etc.

And there have been times when I have been burned (Cold Pursuit, San Andreas, Unsane, Widows, Sicario, etc.)

I'm much more open to blind-buying Blu-rays and (if there's no Blu) DVDs. Do it all the time.

Blind buys are very rare for me. If I don't catch it at the theater, I'll Redbox it unless it's a DVD, in which case I'll wait for a streaming deal (either cheap on iTunes/Vudu/FandangoNow or availability on Netflix/Hulu/Prime Video). Knowing whether a movie "works" for me before adding it to my library helps me control my discretionary spending and ensures my collection doesn't get too unwieldy.

One recent notable exception is Ford v Ferrari, I went ahead and got the 4K SteelBook back when Best Buy had its B2G1 sale. I'm pretty confident I'll enjoy it a lot.

i blind buy all the time. i buy 99% of USA 4k's and import them to the UK. I keep the digital and if i dont like the movie i sell it on ebay and nearly always make a profit as the movie is normally released in USA a month before. its a win win for me everytime

The only blind buys I’ve ever made are movies that are part of sets that I’ve bought where some of the movies weren’t blind buys (the new Godzilla set for example, I’ve seen most of them, but some were blind). Don’t understand how you all spend so much money on movies you’ve never seen. Then again, my collection is much smaller than basically everyone here. I only have 3 UHD, with 3 more in the mail right now. None of them are blind buys.

A big part of our collection are blind buys, both movies aswell as TV shows. If we like a trailer we often buy it.

Most of purchases are blind buy or catalog titles now especially catalog titles with a new 4k. Just bought the 4k Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz/Worlds End trilogy after liking Paul (got Paul as a free streaming choice from some offer) Titles in my wheelhouse like Ford vs Ferrari or Marvel are automatics with others needing something to draw me in. (Actor topic ect)

Most of mine are blind buys or 4K replacements for discs I already own. I don't go to movie theaters to see them first .

My last blind buy was Ad Astra. Hope I will get to watch it this weekend. Had Once Upon A Time In Hollywood in my hands but ended up putting it back. Still debating on that one (would also be a blind buy)

As for recent ones... Gemini Man this week. Solid little action movie, but nothing special. A normal person would be just fine with a rental. 6/10ish.
I'm definitely feeling this way. I've been eager to build my UHD collection and ended up impulse buying a lot of movies that I'm not actually interested in watching more than once.

Going forward I'm going to be more selective about what I buy, and try to have a curated collection as opposed to a huge one. Money aside, I just don't have the space.

I went through this awhile back. I had all these movies and was looking at them saying to myself "what is the point in keeping all of these when I hardly ever watch them more than once, and if I want to watch them again I have digital copies". I ended up selling almost all of them on craigslist and ebay. Now about a year later I'm starting to get the itch to collect again, and have started buying more. I'm trying to keep the blind buys down, but that's one of the things I love most about movies...finding that gem that you normally wouldn't have given a second thought about and loving it.

I had blind buys back when I bought DVDs, but now in 4K? In a time where films are widely available to watch however you want and inspect them before buying?

Yeah, everything I buy is a blind buy, other than movies I might have seen prior to 2004 when I last went to the cinema. I don't pirate. I din't watch commercial television or cable. I only use streaming for stuff I can't get on disc.

As I don't go to the cinema any more, all of my movies are blind buys. But I do read several reviews before parting with my cash.

All very good movies which never happens.. But happy

I do it a lot, mostly actually.
Recently bought The Lunchbox on BD, and it's a wonderful film, which I highly recommend to people wanting to veer off the usual action blockbuster route for a change.

I don't do blind buys....much.

Joker 4K turned out well though! As did Annihilation and Arrival.
