    None. I own only books (and vinyl) I‘m commenting because
    I‘m surprised to find The Man from Earth here. Thought it’s not widely known.
    Wonderful ‚intellectual excercise‘, intimate play. Thanks

    Lol, what movie Don't I own.

    We watched DVDs because we didnt have cable. I actually use to have a major collection of dvds, game systems and games as my career was in video games.

    For anyone that might not be aware; if you buy yourself a sony playstation you will have a machine that will play both blue ray and dvds. And you can play games.

    Dvds are on the way out it seems. The industry wants to have everything online. Dvds are getting cheaper and rarer.

    Just counted. 782 movies, from 3.10 to Yuma to Yes Man. And another several hundred documentaries. (All downloaded from torrents, though, so 'own' might not be quite the right word.)

    Off topic here, but my original version of Moonraker changed (q.v. Dolly's braces and the Mandela Effect) while the external disk the movie file was on was offline, in a drawer, and unconnected to any computer.

    The original, with braces, probably was incinerated in WW3 after Hillary Clinton became president.

    This is such a weird phenomenon.

    I've seen 'Moonraker' at least five times and I am absolutely certain that Dolly had bracelets. Because that was what the whole scene with her and Jaws meeting for the first time was all about. The steel in their mouth, so to speak.

    I wonder if it also effects vhs tapes.

    Still, it's an inconvenient 'riddle', this Mandela Effect, because the implications are of course huge.

    It's more or less the ultimate 'conspiracy.'

    I had maybe 800 or so.
    I 'recycled' most of them but hung onto some I just couldn't bear to be without:
    Jacques Tati's five most well-known films.
    Bedazzled, the original 1967 release
    The Fearless Vampire Killers 1967
    The Rebel 1961
    2001 A Space Odyssey 1968
    as well as various Ealing Comedies, and anything with Sid James!

I haven't been watching my TV (as a device) anymore in years, and I've also cancelled my cable TV subscription many years ago, for that reason. I do however regularly watch one of the movies again that I have on my computer, and I also have certain episodes of a couple of TV series on my computer, including the complete UFO series by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson.

    I have a hundred or so, many on VHS. Many from the European format that I can only watch on my computer. I really don't watch much television, I read quite a bit. But I do have a thing for old horror movies....Creature from the Black Lagoon is one of my favorites.

    I'm a baby so I own all of my movies digitally


    These include:

    - The Lord of the Rings (got that one for free, ha!)
    - Ghost in the Shell (the original 1995 animated masterpiece)
    - A couple of Ghibli/Miyazaki films: Princess Mononoke and Nausicaa
    - Grandma's Boy (a stupid-ass satirical stoner film)
    - Kung Pow

    So that's that

    Like you I remember Dolly with the bracelets on her teeth. With this in mind I recently bought an original copy of Moonraker on VHS but the Dolly scene with Jaws shows her without bracelets. I was so disappointed to see this. In my mind I can still see her with the Bracelets.

    I also remember the bracers
    I remember thinking it was weirdly cute, they were there

    Mandala effects, sometimes due to some part of a previous timeline written over, a type of echo, via butterfly effect,
    If it had been changed by wormhole time travel you would not get this, it’s most likely due to crappy low end tech (parallel world hopping)

    Crap, I thought my collection was large, (300-400)

    To many to mention,

    But everyone should watch the original version of The day the Earth stood still,
    Classic

    The remake of Total Recall 2012,
    Covers the subject of false flag attacks

    ......and you wonder why the critics hated it even before it was released.......

    I just finished a DVD cabinet that holds 700 DVDs. It was filled the moment it was commissioned. I have another on the way and it will immediately be half filled when it is done.

    Besides that we have prolly another 2000 DVDs in the original wall unit that is filled to over-flowing.

    Collecting DVDs and now BluRays is my wife's hobby...as was VHS in an earlier era - those have all been thrown out or sold.

    I was getting into this (although I probably have ~100 DVDs). Except the way I went about it was I'd go to the flea market and check out the DVDs. If I see something cool I'd grab it if not then oh well, better luck next week. I use the same methodology for finding music. The internet has ruined the fun of it for me.

    I have slowly been bringing back the VHS' because it's fun, as well as my old gaming systems and games (Nintendo etc).

    Sadly this has all been put to a halt due to the virus.
    That's life, and I can't deny it

    Teh interwebs is not that bad, eBay is great for retro,
    Been thinking of getting a N64...

    But the games are dirt cheap,

    Btw Nintendo do the best Star Wars games,

    As with any second hand market tho, be careful of pirate material, more so with Nintendo, (many cheap knock offs from China, that could damage your console)
