I hate dvd collectors. I've got prolly 7 or 8 hundred now, but I consider myself more of a movie buff and film fan than a dvd collector. Not all my films appeal to everybody, but I think they all have merit. I'm talking about the kind of people who have absolutely no taste in film, but buy up a pile of movies because they've got nothing better to do. Granted, film is a subjective medium, but sometimes I have to seriously roll my eyes. I've got a buddy who has just about zero taste as far as I'm concerned, and sometimes it really pisses me off. Like, one time we were in a Movie Gallery looking through the used dvds and I came across a copy of 'La Dolce Vita' for about 6 bucks. I couldn't believe my good luck and called him over. He snurled his nose up and said "That's not even in English." I looked down in his hand and he was buying 'Without a Paddle'. I said "You're gonna pre-judge what is widely considered a classic while you stand there with that piece of shit? I watched your movie and it sucked. Why not try mine?" He replied with "I don't wanna read a movie. And this might be funny. It's only ten bucks." "Yeah, ten bucks you could spend on a movie that doesn't suck balls." He just shrugged. I turned around and walked off. I also got a little hot in the collar a few weeks ago because he flipped through Rashomon and said "I ain't watching that piece of crap." I got pissed and called him an ignorant, backwoods redneck and left. It would have been different if he had actually watched it and said it sucked. Worse, though, are the people I see on certain message boards (not this one), that show pictures of their massive collections where as much as 75% of the movies haven't been opened. Speculation on dvds is a lost cause and I don't think there is any kind of MISB rationalization in terms of movies. Not to mention, you will find NO intelligent discussion of films, anywhere on the site. It's like going to a site about music, and just talking about the cd covers. It pisses me off. But the worst is a recent thread where the posters are talking about 'Which acclaimed movie that you blind bought were you dissappointed by." Granted, I could see how movies like Suspiria, Hard Boiled, Blue Velvet, etc., wouldn't appeal to everyone, but some of these movies these people are listing you just have to say 'WTF'. For example, in this thread some of these 'dvd collectors' have said the following movies were 'some of the worst they'd ever seen' Keep that in mind. Not just dissappointing, but the worst. Braveheart, Fight Club, E.T., Pirates of the Carribean, The Godfather, Raging Bull, etc., etc. Just had to get that out.
