    We've all seen those boxsets (sometimes with or without DVD player) of a zillion -well up to 102- DVD movies for peanuts. (In fact there' s a 102 boxset PLUS player on skybuy.com at the moment for £60!!!!)


    Has anyone on here ever bought one?


    If so, did you feel it compulsive to watch all the movies or did you just watch the ones that looked interesting?




    I can't believe that anyone would watch every single one of 102 movies just because they've paid for them.

    The only ones of those types of movies I actually watch are the ones free with DVD magazines.


    Watched 'The Independant' the other day - actually quite good! :)

    Boingo,

    You'll find that almost every DVD player that offers you a large number of freebie discs with the machine itself, will tend to contain maybe one or two reasonable titles, and the rest will be direct-to-video crap that you wouldn't even watch if someone paid you to!

    Also, a lot of these films come on "flipper" discs!

    You'll often find a lot of these kinds of discs available for purchase in bargain basement stores or your local branch of "Cash Converters" (sp?)!

    Avoid these films, as they really are naff! :clap:

    Pooch
