That's like my one saving grace with physical media, I don't really go in for the big fancy collector's editions. I don't care about having the soundtrack or a poster or lobby cards or whatever, and I prefer not to have oversized cases that take up a bunch of room on the shelf.

hmmm.... nice, but dunno if its an absolute must need. unless there's like a grip of new special features and stuff.

this upcoming US UHD is going to be my fifth copy of the movie so what do I know.

Oh for sure, same. I'm going to hold out for the regular edition, I just want that crystal-clear image quality, baby. Otherwise the thing just sits in my cabinet.

I will occasionally go for something like that if it's a film I really really love, but 99% of the time I just care about having the movie

but The Thing is in fact a film I really really love so I'll probably get that set. lol @ having the 2011 film as a special feature

Agreed--though I can't watch the movie without being bummed that they CG'd over the original practical effects. Truly a baffling and disappointing decision.

Definitely going to weed out a good chunk, probably about 100-150. Probably should make a list in case anyone is interested.

Yep. I dont think the 2011 is bad in any regard. Just disappointing. It couldve been so much more and so much cooler if they named it something else. Hell even just call it the Norwegian Expedition or something non-giveaway the ending. Imagine how cool that wouldve been slowly realizing this was a Thing prequel over time, but I guess when you blow a budget on practical and CG effects you just gotta go straight for the throat and let everyone know who may be interested to recoup your costs.

Yes, but it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't type of thing. Name it something else, and no one watches it. Name it after one of the best movies of all time and no one watches it. At least with the linked name, you at least know the connection.

Ive actually been ripping all my stuff to Plex this summer and when Im finally done Im just gonna sell off anything I dont think Ill ever rewatch.

And since Im horrible about impulse purchases itll be a sale to rival the loving B&N and Warner Archive events combined. :shepface:

This is a good idea but not really necessary until you've completely run out of wall space. Once you've lined every wall in your home with shelves like a Victorian gentleman's library but instead of leatherbound editions of Thucydides it's out of print DVDs of obscure kaiju movies and blurays of movies with names like The Torso Collector, then you should think about cleaning out the chaff a bit so you can make room for more movies.

Yeah it annoys me a bit they do this, but it makes sense for the shipping cost I guess. I just add $5 to every price before I decide to buy it.
