Unopened/Unwatched DVDs You Have for the Longest Time
« on: Oct 10, 2002 at 11:03 PM »

i would plan to watch them later when i finish my current semester in graduate school.
about dvd rot, i think it has something to do more with batch defects rather than something that will happen to all discs eventually. case in point, superman r3
i had it only for 3 months before the delamination or the cloudy areas appeared and rendered some of  the special features unviewable. luckily astrovision replaced it.
compared to my silence of the lambs criterion edition. one of the first dual layers discs. you would expect that it would show signs of delamination after all this time but it doesnt

Just saw my first post. Andami palang natutulog na DVD sa cabinet ko! Hindi pa kasama dito yung mga bagong bili dahil sa P350 warner and viva sale! Stop muna akong bumili until I watched them all!

Sige, I'll stop buying DVDs muna starting . . . November. . . . . 20xx

Everything I bought from the Magnavision and Warner sale are still unopened.

Rock Star
Perfect Storm
My Best Friend's Wedding
Swordfish
Snatch

Unopened R3s:
Amadeus
Panic Room Superbit

Tapos, I still have some unopened R1s :

LOTR
ID4
Commando


Dami pa akong binili sa Amazon, hindi pa dumarating - siguradong hindi pa rin bubuksan yung mga yon.


Tama si bro viper, tigil muna ng bili...sabayan ko na lang siya  ;D

I always make it a point to make a fast scan-through of the discs as soon as I get them, this in my paranoia that I might get a subpar copy.  

Thus I am left with no sealed DVD, except for my Wild Wild West R3 (dunno why I can't seem to have the energy to unseal it ;D).

What I have plenty of are unwatched DVDs, like:

Ali
Along Came A Spider
Animal, The
Armageddon
Atlantis: The Lost Empire
Basic Instinct
Beatles Story - Lifetime Biography
Behind Enemy Lines
Big Daddy
Birds, The
Bone Collector, The
Boogie Nights

Bryan Adams - Unplugged
Bulaklak ng Maynila  ;D
Chasing Amy
Clerks
Corrs, The: Live at the Royal Albert Hall
Dangerous Minds
Das Boot
Devil's Own. The
Diamond Are Forever
Eric Clapton - In Concert-Benefit for the Crossroads
Frantic
French Connection, The
From Hell
From Russia With Love
Gandhi

Gilda
Goodfellas
Hart's War
Heat
I Am Sam
In The Bedroom
Iris
Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back
Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
John Lennon - Sweet Toronto / Keep On Rocking
Leon: The Professional
Life Is Beautiful
Majestic, The
Mallrats
Mexican, The
My Best Friend's Wedding
Notting Hill
Octopussy
Omen, The
Paul McCartney - Get Back Live
Pink Floyd: The Wall
Roger Waters - In The Flesh - Live
Rolling Stones - Bridges to Babylon Tour '97-98
Ronin
Rosemary's Baby

Saving Private Ryan
Serendipity
Shawshank Redemption, The
Sound of Music, The
Spy Who Loved Me, The
Super Troopers
Superman 1,2,3,4
Taxi Driver
There's Something About Mary
Thunderball
Titanic
Tony Bennett - MTV Unplugged
Top Gun
Traffic
Under Siege
We Were Soldiers
Who, The - Live at the Royal Albert Hall

Me, too. The first thing I watch are the special features, the trailers, and my favorite scenes.  

What I do have are DVDs (the main film) that still have to be watched from beginning to end:

Excalibur - loved this movie first time I saw it
Lawrence of Arabia - another movie I fell in love with
Star Trek I: TMP Special Edition
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn - Director's Edition
  (for this one, I plan to watch director's commentary
  first)
Little Women - the Winona Ryder version
Time after Time
L.A. Confidential
Ben Hur - too long, have to find time
Bridge on the River Kwai - liked it before, seems slow    
  now
Superman
The Way We Were - finished half, hope to see the rest  
 tonight

Sometimes I get to borrow some titles without even watching the ones I have.  Maybe it's just that notion that your DVDs will always be there on your beck and call but rented ones need to be viewed to be returned on a date.  So buying DVDs and not watching it seems illogical but it is not really on watching it but just the joy of owning one. ;D

Hmm, my database tells me I still have 46 unopened ones, mostly classics and SEs. I do intend to open all at some point, though I must say opening a DVD is both a great pleasure and a sad event. I'm afraid to think of what that means...

well after my recent experience with my recently bought beauty and the beast platinum which had scratches but could play, i think i should start opening them. i've been able to have my scratched dvds replaced before but not this one. my first ever dvd was blade runner r3 and it was scratched when i opened it. buti na lang pinalitan ng warner after a year because i thought it was not replaceable.

Yun, napanood ko na yung The Majestic, maganda pala.

However, additional unopened titles were added. Marami pa ring unopened.  Promise na talaga, stop buying muna ako ng DVD origs habang marami pang unopened.

Added unopened titles:

Iron Giant
Citizen Kane
Pelican Brief
Memento
Joy Ride
Twilight Zone 40th Anniversary
The Royal TEnenbaums
One Night At McCools
Amadeus: Director's Cut

Total unopened DVDs: 63 DVD sets

If I watch one set a week, I need not buy a new title for a year? I don't think so.   ;)
