Hi Ryoohki360,

I don't have buyers fatigue...but I have a bad case of disillusionment/disappointment over time as series that I've started purchasing don't have complete releases and 3D Blu-rays, if released at all, are region locked and have to be imported.

Changes on retailing (loss of media at Target, Best Buy, etc.) are sad as well. Streaming and digital sales have taken a big bite out of hard copy sales.

I guess I'm old school- I refuse to purchase digital copies- I feel like a dinosaur at times- and a lot of joy is disappearing from my hobby of film collecting.

I never purchased much on VHS. I have to say I'm amused when visiting second hand stores that have walls of them. I occasionally buy 4K- but I'm happy with the projection quality of Blu-rays on my 165" and 175" diagonal screens. I'll eventually pick up a 4K projector- whenever I have enough funds to upgrade my receiver to 4K and Dolby Atmos as well. I upgraded everything for 3D compatibility and upgrading to 4K projection will be another expensive project.

I'm similarly old-school, but any displeasure I have at the hassle of managing a physical media collection disappears instantly whenever I can introduce a friend to a cool film by handing them a disc. I get double the pleasure when it's not streamable ANYWHERE.

I've officially called myself a collector when I finally upgraded to blu a decade ago. I have owned plenty of DVD/VHS, but never called myself a collector. But no, no buyer's fatigue.

Deep inside your fever-dream.

I buy only the most absolute "must-haves" these days. Any films that've been driven into the ground (Alien, Predator, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc), I refuse to bother with anymore. I know that I will likely never pop one in the ol' player for a spin, so what's the point? Example: I've been a mega-fan of the first Tremors film for years, and bought the VHS, the DVD, the blu-rays (every release), and this year's blu-ray special edition box set, and then the 4K a few days ago when it was 50% off at AMZ. I have watched each edition. Sorta. I put the 4K in for about twenty minutes before I realized how bored I've become with Tremors. I'm trying to divest myself of some of this stuff, I'm getting old.
