    I think i got myself another hobby without even being aware of it until now, when i checked my movie's shelf.
    It's quite full. I had to move my books away to make some space for the last acquisitions.

    Movies are my number one distraction. I can feel as bad as it gets, but when i watch a movie i'm in there :popcorn: I also love collecting them. Sometimes i go to the store and buy movies i watched 1-2 times already, but i buy them just to have them there because i liked them once upon a time. I also re-watch a lot of movies that made me impression in the first place.

    What about you guys? anyone sharing this hobby?

    not really, since I don't rewatch movies often :o
    I'd rather buy CDs. Even books I'm starting to feel like I'd just rather become a library member and go from there (though at my current rate of reading I'd always be behind in delivery deadlines :lol:)

    I also collect movies, James Bond movies to be exact. I collect others too but I'm most passionate about James Bond Films. :wacko:

    I just bought 10 movies.
    I love it when i can get to offers like 5 for 20 bucks. Or 3 movies for 10 euros. Etc.

    My collection is growing. :clap:

    I used to buy a lot of movies in the past, but I stick with mainly digital movies now. I have over 50 movies on my Flixter/vudu account, so I tend to go that way. I have maybe 40 movies in my DVD/blu-ray collection. I just feel it's pointless these days to buy physical movies when I rarely re-watch them. If I want to, I just sign onto my Xbox and check out flixster. And sometimes Netflix has movies I already have, so it's good there too.

    Haha yeah, Netflix has ended my hobby in a way too. This is why I don't buy television shows on DVD anymore, because Netflix has many of them that I can watch. I only buy movies and tv now if it's not available anywhere else.

    Although there aren't so many movies on Netflix yet. At least not on the german one
    Anyway, i really love collecting movies, but they are so damn expensive. I think they should drop the price a little...

    I don't collect movies but I usually download them with highest resolution and watch. I removed them out of my disk right after I finished watching.

    I haven't added one single movie to the collection after subscribing to Netflix.
    Now I have a virtual movie library. Lol :tard2:

    I've got 829 DVD's cataloged and probably another 75-100 laying around that I haven't cataloged. But I haven't added any in about a year now. I mostly download movies and keep the ones I like on my media PC I have hooked to my entertainment system. I've got probably about 150 - 200 movies on it. In case you couldn't tell I'm a bit of a movie buff. I like all kinds of movies, but especially horror and indie films.

    I love collections. I have all the James Bond movies, every Godzilla movie on the face of the earth, a lot of horror collections like every Friday The 13th, Nightmare On Elm Street, Halloween, etc.
