i love watching movies all the time. this had been my passion for many years. when bored and just can't do anything, i just pick up a VCD or DVD from my collection and play it. i can just sit down on our living room sofa and watch movies... more so, i feel relaxed after. actually, i have more than 30 films on my collection which i haven't seen yet. i love buying movies on VCD and DVD. for one, i can watch them anytime and i can watch them over and over again. how about you? how addicted are you when it comes to movies... whether old or new.

I can call myself as a movie addict because i always rent a movie evryday (except saturdays and sundays). I really like to watch movies and critize their presentation or the plot or the theme. There is a time when im with my girlfriend in the movie shop and i always tell her the story of the dvd she wanted to buy, then she seem so impressed (hehehe LOL). I always go to the movies. I like the movie armageddon, titanic, a walk to remember, 50 1st dates, etc.

J3rvic, there goes your stumbling penguin again which is cute. hehe anyway, nice to know that you share your thoughts about the movies your girlfriend is trying to get. atleast she knows that she's getting something that is worth her money and time.

I watch only those which interest me. There are times though when I watch along with my kids even if I am not that interested. My kids have acquired quite a pile of movies already. I don't watch with them all the time. The problem is, if I watch a few too many, I end up not understanding anything of what is being played right in front of me. I am suffering from some sort of information overload. I easily forget things. And that will include the titles of most movies I happen to have watched.

I love watching movies. I am one that will watch a movie time and again if it was one that moved me. My husband will only watch a movie more than once if it is one that he likes. But,let me put in one that I like and he stomps his feet. Too bad. He can always go to his computer and play Battlefield.

Well, I perfer to be a critic!;) LoL I review movies, try to look at the story first, then watch it whenever I get intrigued by how the story goes. Most of the times, I prefer for those movies which are critically acclaimed and are with best castings. Stories about triumph, true-to-life, inspirational and comedy flicks are what I mostly love to watch. Though I never get a chance now of adding some of the DVD/VCD's on my collections, I still try to find a way to look at reviews!;)

wow! i wish i have that kind of patience, too---reviewing first before buying. but nope. mostly, i just grab the one with a nice title, read the synopsis at the back, see the casts and the production and if i'm impressed, i buy it. hehe. i admit there are movies i bought which is far down my expectation.

I have an overwhelming DVD collection, counting in for the moment at around 500 or so. I just got rid of a bunch, actually. Then there's the VHS movies, which I'm slowly replacing with DVD ... I have about 200 of those, not counting the Disney Classics collection for my kids, of which I have the complete set. Yeah, you could say I'm a bit of a movie addict. I like to see everything that comes out, even just to say I've seen it. We watch very little tv in my house, but a hell of a lot of movies.

wow! yep. you are a movie addict indeed. i haven't gotten those VHS collections. all i have are collections on DVDs and VCDs. and your collection of around 500 proves you really are a movie addict. hehe. as of now, i have more than 400 in VCDs and more than 600 in DVDs. hehe. and i admit, not all of them have nice stories.

By watching the movie you can forget your own problems and enjoy it, if it is tured out movie based on best theme. I used to see plenty of movies when I was young. After introduction of VCD and DVD I hire them from shop and watch only the best movies. Slowly I am loosing interest on movies because now-a-days except few all are not attracting my attention. Of course I have collection of VCD and DVD movies of old classical and few modern movies.

Your collection of those classical movies must be those stand outs. We have quite a collection movies at home, too. My kids are very fond of collecting movies which they hear to be good to watch.

I guess I'd have to consider myself an addict. I have about 100 DVDs and a bunch of VHS that I'm replacing as they become available on DVD, and as I can afford them. I don't have much money or space or my movie collection would be much larger, but I rent from Netflix, so I'm hardly ever without something new to watch. I'm also very selective about what I spend my money on, so my collection is movies that I know I'll watch many times.

i should try and do that, too. be selective about what movies i'm gonna spend my money for. that's a great idea... just buy movies which i can watch over and over again.

Prove it huh? Hmmm For one, i go to cinema for almost every new one that comes out every week especially the most raved movie. I almost cant stop myself for that. If i do, i buy dvds. We have almost 200 dvd collection accumulated now because of how much we have bought before. We decided to just rent it out even to return the money rather than have it sitting around. Also, even before when i was in college, everytime i come home for the weekend or vacation, first stop when i arrive is the rental place. I borrow vhs tapes of 5-6 movies. And i specifically saved up some of my allowance for this too. :) So have i proven it to you?:)

My proof is in the ammount of DVDs that I own. at the present time I own somewhere around 250 DVDs. I am also a subscriber to both Netflix and Blockbuster online, and the blockbuster and hollywood video stores in my area. I think this qualifies me as a movie addict.

Every since we joined the Netflix movie rentals, I have definitely become a movie addict. I never used to make time to sit down and watch movies or any television shows for that matter. When we joined Netflix, we started getting 3 movies in the mail at a time to watch and then we send them back and get 3 more. We like to watch these new releases and send them back as quick as possible so we can have 3 more sent to us. I can watch some of them over and over again, but we like to move on to the next new release and we can always get one of the old ones again any time we want to. We rent some of the old ones too that we haven't seen for a long time.

netflix is an online rental store, right? i have heard about it. but i don't think we have that here in the philippines. you mean, you can get another three for free if you send back the first three films you rented? wow! that's a great deal!

I can spend days together watching movies, but only ones I like. I have a very strange habit of watching one movie multiple times with a gap of a month or so. There are instances wherein I have watched movies continuously for 14 hours. Now I am paying the price for it, I have got a +.25 rating on my right eye !1

I am more than addict to movies. I have more movies than average videostore.(400+ VHS,more than 700 dvds and +VCDs) I still keep tapeing movies. New or old I don't care as long as it is good. Now i have problem because i can't find one that i didn't watch(exept war movies-I stopped when I had real wararund me,...) Now I enjoy to watch the same movie in different versions (old and new version as is : King kong) They are more effective than medicine for nerves Comedy first,than:trillers,drama(not too much),dancing,other languages/countries,
