I am glad to say that my dvd's have never gotten lost. I only lend to friends I can really trust with my dvd's (there's only 3), not to mention my two brothers and pregnant sister. And thankfully, they do come back with no scratches. And I get them back within the week or two. The only thing I regret doing in the past is actually selling some of my dvd's because I need the money, and having to want them again years later! Of course I am very careful and vigilant as to who I lend to. The fact that my dvd's are Region 1 makes it even better for me because most of my friends won't be able to watch them anyway (different region) so I am doing good. I feel bad for you guys though. I am also thankful that I keep track of my dvd collection on dvdaficionado to make sure I haven't lost anything. I rarely let friends borrow these days, as my brothers and sister usually have first pick on my new releases.  
I had to purchase Super Size Me once.

  Same here!  I had to purchase Super Size Me 5 times.  Twice borrowed, 1 lost and 1 scratch.  Kiss of the Dragon, bought it 3 times.  Twice borrowed and so called friends never give it back.

That sucks, Matt. My Monster's Inc. and Max Keeble were broken too (by my sis)!

Ahh, the good'ol days when I used to let people borrow movies. After not getting a few back and a few back in less than the condition they were lent out in I haven't let any leave the house except to my girlfriend's parents' house.

I'm not really fan of Kill Bill. I only got it because it was second hand, and has a DTS soundtrack. Now at work my friends come to me like a video store!!

I have many plans. Happy At the moment I am concentrating on a complete rewrite of the current site.

It would be cool if dvdanswers.com would have a system like dvdspot.com
Mal
I would create my own but DVD Aficionado doesn't have a lot of the films I own and can't be bothered adding them to their system. Happy
Mark Lim, I like it, but there is a few things.

First, I'm pretty sure that Monster-In-Law is out in Australia.

Kill Bill has to be complete, all you have is Vol. 1

Good collection, though
Now it's working.

What do you guys think??

I know there might be a few that you might think I'm wasting my money on, but I happen to like many of these cheesy movies.

I know. I like Seinfeld and I'm starting to collect them. My bro has CYE seasons and I watch them a lot. I liked the last episode on the 3rd season and the Porno Gil.
I was so afraid when Napoleon came out on DVD because it was a small movie that very few people saw in theatres, and when it came out on DVD I knew word of mouth would kill it for me.  I am now afraid that this will happen to other movies I want to see, like The Aristocrats or My Date With Drew.

 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.
If you don't want it on DVD, just get Cinemax. Napoelon Dynamite is on all the time.
I don't know why it's not working. I followed the instructions!! One more time...
Let's try that again. My last post did not work, in reagrds to my collection.
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.



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

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

Too many mainstream flicks, and wayyyyyyy too many Full Screen versions.
I'm gonna update my sig with DVD Collection in a little bit.

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.
My DVD Collection is now in my sig.

Sorry to Hijack the thread but how is Aficianado, i had been using Profiler but the thing is such a rescource hog that i cant use it (unless its gotten better).
I have to still have to get the other Star Wars movies too.

Yeah, I just got a widescreen TV about 2 weeks ago, so I'm settling in with it. I always used full screen
Tony...I noticed a lot of Full Screen editions in that collection...
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.)
wow...thats quite a collection you've got. i really like most of those movies. and thanx to you...i created my own as well! there are a few movies (like titanic & chicago) that havent been released yet that are on my "owned" list, but thats because i've pre-ordered them and don't feel like putting them on the "on order" list!
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!
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)

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.
