Never should have bought.....
Have any of you ever bought a DVD thinking you'll enjoy the film and keep the DVD, but in the end you regret buying the DVD in the first placed. For me, since I live in Australia, movie releases in cinemas are soooo backwards that I occasionally come across movies on DVD from Region 1 that come out even before the cinema. But I cannot rent it. So I take a calculated risk.

Movies I should not have bought include...
The Weather Man
Fever Pitch
Jarhead
A Guy Thing
Beyond Borders
I'm sure there are others as well...can't remember them.

This post is NOT about movies on DVD's that get double dipped.
Especially those with Ultimate Editions...

Not really.  Most films I buy, I have seen in cinema or rented first.  The only exception is Criterion releases and I don't think I have ever actually regretted buying one of them.

Dancer in the Dark. Bought it without seeing it and found it was an overlong mess of good music and oversimplified moral poop.

I almost made that mistake, but I couldn't see myself buying a moving starring Bjork without actually seeing it first.

Ones like Land of the Dead and Alone in the Dark (I knew I shouldn't of bought it). I have more but they are a few I've been p**sed off of buying. I'll list more later.
