    I've got about 110 so far. I'd like to peak out at around 300. Is this too many movies to have on hand? what's your ideal number of movies?

    ive got about 300 or so, i dont think you can have an ideal # unless you start throwing some out because there are always going to be new movies released on dvd that i would purchase. My collection will continue to grow unless theres a better format (blue ray, hd, whatever) that comes out soon/reasonably priced.

    Well the ideal number was more in reference to the number of movies you'd actually end up watching again, sorry I should have been a bit more specific. I have about 110 in a case I take wherever I go to watch movies. I'm thinking i'm going to need a bigger case, and the only thing limiting my ammount of movies is budget, and not wanting to carry around 30 lbs in DVD's.


    As for 600 DVDs, that's insane... I could only imagine owning that many. I doubt I'd ever watch all of them again.

    I wouldn't take them around, fuck that. Unless someone wanted to watch a specific one/few or something, else I'll just watch them at home.

    And I would get around to watching them again sometime, and the bigger the choice the better :)

    My friend has 300+, like everything you'd ever want to watch. (Yet I can still look at them all and wish I was at a video store - haha). They're all alphabitized. Mess them up and watch his head spin around and around and around... : )

    About 150. I stopped earlier in the year and am now only adding movies I worked on. One of the reasons why I don't buy DVDs now is HD-DVD or BluRay are around the corner!

    last time I counted, it was around 700. delicious-libary / delicious-monster made it a hell of a lot easier to keep track of, too.

    edit: that count is what I recall from delicious-library, but the problem is it counts the die-hard trilogy as one movie, the matrix series as one movie, etc. So, if you break those out, it goes up, but, it's at least 700

    I think I'm around maybe 60. I tend to clean house every six months or so and trade 4-5 old ones for a new one, so I try and keep the amount only to ones I rewatch a lot.
