No matter which of these: TV, movie rentals, online piracy is how you get your actual home entertainment, nothing beats the pride of owning a DVD collection. Whether they remain smartly wrapped in their factory seal—or opened for that once in a lifetime viewing—having a few hundred plastic boxes stacked in the family room seems to be satisfying for most of you.
It seems that when you own a DVD, you’re saying something about the person you are and the types of movies you plan to watch someday. Or, it’s a way to remind yourself that you really enjoyed a particular movie the one time you saw it. Perhaps you don’t want to risk a clash between video rental hours and a late night craving to watch Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
So look at what’s missing from your DVD collection and start shopping (or ripping and burning), but hurry—we understand that DVDs will only be in use for another three or four years.
