    Is there anyone else out there like me bought a dvd box set or special edition and put it away and never watched it.Only asking the question as I bought Band of Brothers box set and only got round to watching it this week working nightshift offshore gave me ample time.I did really enjoy it and just remembered i've had it for more than a year been loaned out to 2 others so I do have a wee bit of an excuse,so come on anyone else........?

    We were very kindly all notified of a pricing error on the box set in a tin of Band of Brothers over two years ago and I was lucky enough to get one before the prices were rectified. It's still sitting there unopened and unwatched so far from saving money, it was actually a waste of money.

    I bought the complete 4th season of The Simpsons and lent it to my mate for his kids to have a look at.... and still haven't got it back yet so I've not watched it.

    See my sig. Well over half of them are brand spanking that I haven't gotten fom the trade section of this forum and have just not gotten around to watching. Admittedly none of them are from more than a year ago, though.

    If you decide that you nedd to clear the space that it's taking up then I could give it a very good home :D .

    I hadnt seen 24, the TV series, ever before. I watched one episode of series 4, thought thats pretty good, Ill make an effort to watch the next one. By chance I actually did watch the next episode. I have watched every single episode since and it is easily the best TV series (equal to Friends) I have ever watched.

    I 100% RECOMMEND ANYBODY WHO HAS THE TIME TO WATCH 24. Note that series 1-3 take a few episodes before you are hooked, series 4 only needs 1 though.

    I bought the box set of the matrix trilogy (slightly embarressed about that), and havent watched it, mainly becuase ive seen all three in cinema and fleetingly on sky movies. I still dunno what made me buy it.

    My ommision's are borderline criminal! Saw Memento for the first time a few weeks ago after it had lay unwatched in my collection for years. I had tried before but couldn't get involved. Also I got Star Wars episodes 4, 5 and 6 and realised to my horror I had never seen 6! In both cases it 'suddenly all made sense'.

    Yea i saw band of brothers box set for somthing like £25 or so way back and thought i had to buy, new it was excellent had seen bits of it etc, but not being a major war film buff hadnt been in the mood for it and it sat gathering dust lent to a couple of peeps all said it was great, just recently started watching it, though admitedly i have a 1 dvd left to watch, so no one say anything :p

    Actually ive still got a load of films and *cough* old Divx movies i still havent watched like, oh yea, Maidinmanhatten is it me or is there no appeal to even put that in my player :p hehe.

    I have really tried to slow down my buying as I have so many boxsets and SE's still unopened. I've been quite good, I haven't bought anything for 5 weeks now (and boy is it hard!) :D

    I can only imagine re-buying tv boxsets as it'd end up me saving a lot of space (I hope!) :)

    I will only be re-buying the classics and blockbusters. I can't see myself replacing my whole collection. I still have a few movies on VHS which i havent got on dvd as they don't deserve to be rebought or re-watched such as Relic, batteries not inc, ghostbusters...etc

    I'll probably buy maybe my top 20-30 faves on HD format but for the majority of my collection i'd be happy just to keep them in DVD format. To buy a couple of hundred films again would cost a small fortune! :eek:

    Agreed. Allot of movies wont need to be HD to be appreciated. I dont think it will be the same a VHS to DVD as you can still play DVD's in a HD drive (I think so anyway, not 100%) and DVD's are digital and VHS was analouge.

    However that said I wont buy a SD version of a movie if there is a HD version. :thumbsup:

    Surely there will be a limit to the level of definition that you can get out of some of the older film prints as well. It will probably only be the more recent stuff that can be remastered in HD. I could be wrong though - does anyone know whether this theory has any basis?

    I could be wrong here but most films are shot in a higher res than normal SD as they have to be shown on the big screen (cinema). So to remaster to HD should be very straight forward. :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

    i have a lot of dvds i've never watched. In terms of movies, it must be nearing 100. Probably 2 thirds of those i have seen the movie on tv or in the cinema, then bought but not watched the dvd. tv boxsets would be pretty much all the buffy and angel ones, although i have seen all the episodes before so i more or less got them just for collection purposes, and series 3 of millennium. when millennium was on tv, i thought the final ever episode was the one where frank's wife dies, but i discovered after buying the boxsets that there's a whole 3rd series after that!!
