I know someone who goes to Best Buy/chain stores and just buys whatever new movies are out regardless of what they are. And of course none of those are boutique label stuff. It's all just the mediocre kind of crap you'd see in the front display at Best Buy. In fcat he has awful taste in movies and calls me a hipster because I "don't like stuff that's popular".

Long live the best buy $4.99 and $5.99 bins.

I saw the Shout Factory release of Mad Max in the 5.99 bin a few days ago.

Yeah I wasn't being lovely, full earnesty - I check that poo poo out every time they refresh a couple three times to make sure i get it all. There's a lot of quality content in there.

A lot of garbage too but a lot of quality content.

I do it with Kodi and DVDs now. I rip them as ISO files,and get the menus and everything. A more recent version of Kodi added bluray support, but I haven't tried it yet (I'm concentrating on ripping my 800+ CD collection first).

Yeah, that's what I'm doing but with blu-ray focus, since I never really had a DVD library I decided to start with Blu's and have stuck to it. (Not even 4k, just regular blu rays) - Then digitizing them and adding to my "personal cloud" came later.

Save them to MKV from MakeMKV and don't touch them further - no transcoding, just the raw dump onto my NAS.

it takes a big NAS. I'm already running out of room on a 8x 8TB synology - Afraid of having to expand but the SHSC packrat NAS thread keeps current with deals on disks so I'm hopeful to get some 12 or 14 TB WD drives on the cheap soon to help expand.

Do the digital codes that come with most blu-rays actually expire or is that just a cover-your-rear end warning thing? Think I have a few of them stashed away somewhere but they all said they might be expired by like 2017 and I never bothered to check if they did.

Most all of mine are expired. I hold onto the slips in case there’s ever a lawsuit over the poo poo (price fixing or something due to the “value” of those useless codes?)

The very name "Criterion" implies a *Criteria* in play for the titles they release, so it's not unusual to expect that their catalogue is typically well vetted films of some level of significance.

Of course you can't please everyone, though. Glad to have them out there doing what they do, but I'll never be one of those "Gotta collect every criterion disc" people either.

Give me more goofy “low-brow” genre stuff in the Criterion Collection, if I’m being totally honest. I don’t care about Criterion as a standard of excellence for the movies themselves, I view the label as an assurance that the total package will be done with a certain level of care and attention to detail. There’s a lot of “lesser” films that aren’t art house darlings, that could really use a release that isn’t just some barebones Mill Creek offering.

This 100%

Not sure this is still in production due to no prime logo but https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-BDR-XD07S-Slim-Portable-Burner/dp/B07ZQS3KDV is the one that ive been using for easily over 500 bluray rips so far

I had one of those and it eventually died on me. Replaced it with this one from LG, which I've gotten a lot of use out of, especially since I've turned my old MacBook Pro into a "desktop" computer.

The one I have doesn't write Blu-ray discs, but it was this price, so it's an upgrade.

Nice, I'll prolly snag one for when this Pioneer drive eventually kicks it. it's so far the longest lasting drive i've used tho, i had some that would fart out after only 100 rips. thinking about it, this has prolly 600-800 on it so far - a real champ

Speaking of Shout, they have their own twitch channel that's always on. I watched it a year or so ago when they were showing some old super sentai series to see what they were like.

I have no idea if it's region locked.

For the people who (correctly) put things in alphabetical order, do you include "The" if it's the first word of the movie?

The only movie in my collection sorted with "The" is The good, the bad and the ugly.

I don't know why that ended up being an exception, i should probably fix it.

(Same for the physical copies for each of these of course, just showing digital for convenience)

So T3 isn't canon then? Not that it matters too much

Whatcha mean? I guess the latter ones after the first don't have "The" in the title but it keeps them lined up right in order file-wise, i never care too too much about the filenames as much as the sort order.

Just funny, is all. Like you simply don’t recognize Rise of the Machines as a movie, which is perfectly fair because man that movie ages like a dead skunk

oh oh yeah i'm missing a couple of them, I misread your statement got it now.

I'll eventually fill them in i got a few gaps going up and down some series but i usually wait to find fills from the discount bin for poo poo i dont care about so much yeah lol

There are six Terminator films when you numbered five. Since the pic had Salvation, Genesys & Dark Fate listed then either the original, Judgment Day or Rise of the Machines were missing. Since no movie buff would lop off any of the Cameron films, T3 it is.

In the end though, you have a great film collection and I'm a big loser so feel free to ignore anything I say.

ya ya.. I misunderstood up above, and then clarified - i am missing rise of the machines and need to back fill that when i find it for cheap, but i'm not in a rush lol, this collection is a work in process since 2009 or so and i've still got holes here and there for series that i'd like to fill, but alas..

e: as of today, 1,643 titles in the collection, of which 1,616 are Blu-Ray and the remainder DVD.

I have 634 movies in my collection, not counting some boxsets and individual titles that are on their way to me still. If today I could order every movie I know I want, it would probably get up to 800. Then I’d be adding maybe 15-20 new releases each year into the future. Plus old movies I watch for the first time and decide to buy. gently caress I need more shelves 😰

hell yeah

my story is pretty much that i never bought vhs and dvds were coming out when i was a late teen and i never bought them either, netflix mail order dvds were the game and i didn't think much of it, until netflix went digital on-line and I started using that service.

well, i had a date set up with someone and we were gonna watch some 80s flick major title that i saw on there the night before, can't recall if it was BTTF or ghostbusters or some other top distribution title - i don't really remember because when we sat down they had loving pulled it and it hosed up the whole vibe of the night.

about this time, the HDDVD and Blu-Ray format war was right about in the middle-end and i decided that was the time that i'd actually start collecting media, and i'd build my own library that i could trust to be there. it was just discs on shelf units for a while until a few years back now i built a NAS and ripped everything, which i still do today and is my primary storage/consumption is off a 96TB Synology NAS to an Intel NUC to run plex/transcode and main player is an Apple TV 4K. The discs just go into vinyl carry bags off amazon into the depths of a closet now, but there's a matching disc for every title on the server and none pirate. (Not against piracy tbqh, just this is different to me)

so that's how i got into collecting physical media lol
