    Hi. My name is patmoore and I have a problem.

    I like buying BDs. Especially cheap ones that I don't care for.

    I don;t double dip though, those on DVD stay on DVD. I assume my application is rejected because of this. :D

    I need help. I've got 83 blu-rays, 5 more in transit, and I only got my player in December:suicide:. I'm double dipping all over the shop, I've got 168 HD DVDs, over half of which I've yet to unwrap, and am even contemplating treble-dipping on some of those. I constantly give away factory sealed SD DVDs as freebies to grateful family members, and live on a diet of peanut butter and gruel.

    And still my girlfriend can never find a film to watch with me at the weekend. Just shoot me now.

    My name's Shaun and I'm a Blu Ray addict. 125 purchased in 18 months - only about a third watched so far with still about 250 DVD's in the unwatched file. Just this week I purchased Kill Bill 1 & 2 on Blu even though I have them on DVD and haven't watched those yet !

    I've got it bad.

    Sorry, make that 129 Blu Rays. I forgot I'd bought Rambo 3 on Axel Music and another 3 on Amazon the other day !
    But when they work out at £5.99 each - who can resist ?

    Hi my name is Kirk and I'm a Blu Ray addict.
    I have 74 Blu Rays in my collection (see signature) with one more in the post.
    I was an HD DVD addict, but when the clearance bargains dried up I switched my poison for Blu!

    I have to be careful that my GF doesnt disown me, I get home from work before she does just enough time to get to the letterbox open the parcels and strategically place the blu's in the cupboard as if they had been there all along

    I guess I better. I feel like Hancock (the jail group session) cos I don't wanna talk about it.

    I am an addict! There I said it OK!!:D

    I just paid £20 to get Body of Lies early, I just paid £25 to get LEON because only Amazon.de can provide my fix. I just paid £20 to get groundhog day, all in the same damn week. I have no money:thumbsdow

    I'm sorry, I feel degraded now..:rotfl:

    I have Blurays I haven't even watched yet and I'm still buying more.

    hello all

    My name is Mark and i have been an addict for about 8 months now

    I was the guy that said 'I will only buy new releases on blu-ray and never buy a film i already own on dvd'

    Since saying that i have invested in the matrix trilogy again, Transformers again, the POTC films again and many more

    I was also guilty of saying 'why would i spend £18 on a blu-ray when i can buy 5 HD-DVDS for that off hmv.com'

    So last time i counted i have over 82 Blu-rays - whoops :D

    Its nice to know i am not the only guy that hides the parcels delivered from the Mrs :thumbsup:

    Hi there

    I have a problem. I have gone "cold turkey" now for approximatley 24 hours... it's been very difficult but I still can't help putting on the likes of Sunshine, I Am Legend or Taken one more time. I can't help but feel all those pixels need to be taken in by my retina one more time so I can quench my need for them.

    I feel very lucky that I don't have one of "those" girlfriends who can't tell the difference between SD DVD and Blu-ray, so I'm extending the blame slightly on to her too.

    I have a relatively small Blu-ray collection of about 20 but am working on it!

    Adrian

    P.S. I think we all deserve a round of applause

    I'm addicted too.
    I have a massive mortgage, I'm getting married in July and the missus has told me to stop buying blurays.

    However in the last two weeks I've received 7 more HD-DVD's and 5 more blurays with "Taken" having just landed today and "Man on fire" on it's way.

    She's going to go bananas. Wait until I tell her I have to buy another disc rack to put all the extra discs I have stacked up in the sitting room. :thumbsdow

    Thanks to the good people who alerted me to the Movietyme coupon. I checked my junk folder and there it was, and now I've used it and ordered Heathers!

    You're all enablers :nono:.
