    SH*T, in total since last Thursday I've just bought/ordered 18 DVD's from various sources. Some new some old and some that just looked at me and said "buy me". Am I the saddest case or can someone top that ?

    It happened to us all mate.

    Lucky (??) for me there are three things stopping this from happening to me now:-

    (1) I have exhausted the back-catalogue collection of available DVDs I want;

    (2) I have to be sure a film is not RCE thus preventing me from making huge pre-orders and...

    (3) there are no good new films out these next few month.

    It's not the money, but the damn time to watch the films, because I'm busy working to earn the money.... [​IMG]

    5 discs turned up today to go with the 2 that arrived on Tuesday. Not quite in the same league as Pseudo_Man, but I'm about to order a few more tonight.

    No good films coming out in the next few months? Well there's Billy Elliott, Close Encounters, Crouching Tiger (R1) and Traffic and I can't wait to get my hands on Charlie's Angels [​IMG]

    Strange how many of the topics brought up over at the DVD forums make their way over here at some point! [​IMG]

    This is the re-named thread "Am I addicted to buying DVD's?" and I'm so glad I read that one. I was starting to think that gazing lovingly at my collection was just a tad on the sad side, but it seems there are many others in the same boat so I don't feel quite so bad now!

    Been a little better lately though. Only bought about 5 since Xmas and only 2 on pre-order. [​IMG]

    Unfortunately Floyd I am not a bottomless pit and my bank balance proves this. Problem is, I recently went on a serious upgrade path and found myself justifying my DVD purchases on this. OK my collection is around 150 now and it can be quite satisfying, but I find that the ones I bought to replace some favourites I had on video, are watched once and that's it. I even found myself watching Life of Brian the other night on TV, when I have the DVD sitting on my shelf !.

    I think I should rename this thread

    "You know when you've bought too many DVD's when ..."

    OOPs that's let the cat out of the bag ! [​IMG]

    What do you mean Ono

    "Billy Elliot, hardly blockbuster stuff."

    True but why does it have to be a blockbuster to be good. I'm my opinion it was a very good film.

    Also Close Encounters and Traffic were both excellent.

    Charlie's Angels was dreadful. It proves you can't make a film out of attractive women and action alone.

    Ono,

    I'm going to really hack you off now, by telling you that the R2 version of the T2:UE set has been delayed again until October 2001!!

    All I can say is, sod R2 companies, and give the e-tailers and Yanks, your hard-earned cash instead! When they say a disc is out, they get the disc out! Yet over here, they just feed you endless excuses about technical issues, copyright problems, and player compatability! F*** 'em! I want my DVD's, not this kind of garbage!

    Vote R1: for your sanity, if nothing more!

    Pooch
