Question For Members of DVD Aficionado
I just recently joined DVD Aficionado. I already listed all the movies I own. Now, I wanna make a link on here so people can read them. Will somebody please help me with this? Any help will be appreciated.

go to Member Profile (Forum Signature)
then type [url=x]y[/url ]
instead of x, type the web address
and replace y with any title that you want ex: My DVD collection.

there's no space between the letter l and ], it's the only way I could show it.  If there was no space, then you would only see the letter y, which is your title.
The Codes explain it on the top left corner, where it says Codes Smilies.  Just click on the word.

Thanks Danny Boy. Anybody, feel free to write comments. And, if you see movies that didn't come out yet, my videostore allows you to purchase movies the weekend before it comes out (like Sin City will come out tomorrow at my videostore)

I come out even better, when I can buy Region 1 dvd's off my friend's dvd store in Sydney, Australia and all dvd orders imported from the U.S. arrive  up to two weeks in advance of the release date!! With the exception of all Warner Bros Titles that get delivered the same week after the release date.

Thanks for asking that question about showing your dvd collection. I'd like to do it too!

Adam K., you got a pretty small sweet collection. I also noticed you have a lot of movies that are the same as me (I used to have Max Keeble and Monsters, Inc. They broke in my old sucky DVD player.)

Yeah, I just got a widescreen TV about 2 weeks ago, so I'm settling in with it. I always used full screen

I used to go Full Screen up until about last September.
When I realized How much picture loss I was getting.
I bought a 50 Inch Samsung Widescreen(With DLP projection on a HD monitor)Television in February.
I still envy the fact that you got Sin City before I did.
It doesn't come here till next tuesday.

Honestly, once I discovered wide screen, loooooong before I ever had a widescreen TV, I couldn't even look at Pan-and-Scan movies ever again. I'm very much into the art of film over the writing within, so my priorities are interesting to say the least.

who r u talkin' to? me or tony? or both?

and yah, isn't it just SO annoying how they insist on fullscreen? i'll admit, i used to be fullscreen-only as well, BUT that changed like this year. i only get full screen movies if its by accident (i.e. MEAN GIRLS: all Target had was a full screen version, and i didn't really pay that much attention. it makes me so mad)

Same here bros.  You know what I really hate....it's when I have guests over at MY place and they insist to put fullscreen or subtitles on.

My brother is stupid.
The only time I'd ever watch FS dvd's is if they're open matte usually.

I like your collection. You have Harold and Kumar and Napoleon Dynamite. Good movies.

Thanks.
I love Harold and Kumar, and I like ND quite a bit despite the fact that it's a little overrated.

Ditto. Sony actually uses a pan and scan process on most of it's movies that physically makes me ill. It speeds up the framerate conversion of the movie whenever there is an artifical pan. Check it out the next time a few good men or a league of their own is on TV.

Spy Kids 3 was okay with the 3-D effects but the premise sucked.

Had it's moments.
I was the only person in the theatre that didn't get a headache from the 3-D effects.

I haven't purchased anything in pan & scan, given the choice, since 1994 when I purchased my first laserdisc player in order to get most of my movies in widescreen format. There isn't any need for pan & scan titles anymore as most DVD players, any decent ones anyway, have a zoom feature for those who prefer their movies butchered, and when upgrading to a 16x9 television all the pan & scan titles one owns become obsolete picture quality wise.

I haven't updated my DVDProfiler database in a while since other things have been taking up most of my PC time here at home this summer; I'm probably missing a good 150 or so titles.

You are a disgusting beast Matt, but that's why we love you, and worship you as our DVD Whore master.

On the topic of Napoleon Dynomite, I have decided to just NOT see it for a few years at least, becasue I'm so sick of hearing people talk about it that I know I won't be giving it a fair chance. If I see it now, I can promise I'll hate it.

The one thing I like about looking at other's collections, is that you can check to see if there's any film/tv show/dvd that you like and forgot about, and you wouldn't mind adding to your collection.

I now have over 450 dvd's.
I'm focusing on more TV shows I like from the 80's and early 90's, as well as some 70's.
