With rare exception, I completely stopped buying movies. Buying the
same movie over and over again seemed insane to me. Here's the movie
DVD. Here's the movie special edition DVD with deleted scenes. Here
is the movie special edition Blu-ray Super Gold with new special
effects where Stuart shoots first. Collect all five covers!
I used to like to get DVDs for the shows I like. Then it finally
occurred to me I was hardly watching any of them. I've had the first
two seasons of Star Trek TNG for over 9 years and I finished the
second season last week. Took about a month or so to watch.
Sometimes I would get a bad DVD disc, but it had been so long since I
got the DVD I'd forgotten who gave it to me or if I bought it. And to
go to the publisher and get replacements costs about the same as just
buying a new one. Blah.
With all that I've learned reading this thread, it sounds like if I
get the lastest and greatest movies on blue ray and all the bells and
whistles so the movie I'm watching is in higher definition than real
life, it gets to be an even bigger PITA and waste of money.
At this point, my wife and I just Netflix the DVDs we want to watch
and sit far enough away from the TV so the picture looks just fine.
Now the only thing I have to worry about sucking is the last two
seasons of Alias.
