I think that this will be met with many an argument here, but personally I feel that the collecting of vast quantities of DVDs is a bit of a waste of time. When I first got a DVD player I would buy the odd one, basically some of my favourites. The rest I rented. Over the years I have really only built up a collection of 30 or so. My only recent buys over the last few years are the likes of Star Wars trilogy, LOTR trilogy, Band of Brothers, Frasier series, etc. Basically ones that I like to own. But I really lost interest in collecting DVDs for the sake of it (sometimes I am tempted by the odd Net bargain though). I feel there is no point in buying a DVD that I would rarely watch - if I am in the mood to see it I can just rent it. At the end of the day if its not one of my favourites then I will probably only fancy watching it every 4 or 5 years anyway (in fact if its not one of my favs then it probably will only enter my head if it appears on TV anyway - then I'll watch it). I'm not saying that its wrong to collect hundreds of DVDs if thats what you want to spend your money on. But there seems to be the odd person around that boasts about how many they have and that they have 'such and such' a version of a film. The companies make loads of money off a lot of people like this. I mean there is some films that have had about 10 versions out. These always get people upgrading.
