    Anyone else currently building their blu-ray collection or have been building one for a while now?

    After yesterday, I have finally completed my collection (for now) at exactly 60 movies. They're pretty in blue. :) Loved Black Friday deals since the vast majority of blu rays were on major sale.

    i never really get the idea of collecting movies... i watch it and i am done with it. if it is a great movie, i might want to watch it 3 times; that is very few. and that it is fine to wait till it comes on regular TV to watch it again.

    All I've got in blu-ray is 300 and the second season of Darker than Black. Most of my anime collection is in DVD format and I don't see them converting anything but the newer/more popular stuff into blu-ray format. Which sucks. It's a lot more convenient to watch anime in blu-ray because you don't have to change disks nearly as often. :(

    I had over 130 DVD movies and then they went to bluray/DVD HD. I'm a little sheepish about building up a Bluray collection (especially one as extensive as my DVD collection). I remember when people had a big VHS collection and then decided to sell them to a video store. The store was offering them .25 for most of their movies....

    I have about 30 or 40 ones. I now just get the ones on sale, usually $15 or less.

    I feel the same exact way, except for a few movies I love. I guess some people love more than a few movies.

    Damn, missed out on the Back to the Future sale, it's back up to $47 now.
    I'll check out the others. Thanks.

    I've been collecting DVDs for many years. Only recently, did my wife and I get a Blu-ray player, along with a suitably modern flat-panel 3D TV.

    So far, I've not been that impressed with Blu-ray in general. To me, the picture quality isn't that much better than DVD, and I find the menu systems to be considerably less consistent or logical.

    We're mostly buying new movies in Blu-ray rather than DVD format, but I don't feel any great need to replace most of my existing DVDs with Blu-ray.

    The one thing that is impressive is 3D. We've so far only got two 3D Blu-ray

    I love the quality of Blu-ray so I definitely buy the movies I love when they're cheap.

    Plus, the other day I saw that Target has a $5 blu-ray section now with a respectable variety of movies available.
