Your Movie Collection

posted by Chyron8472 on - last edited - Viewed by 697 users

There is another thread on this forum about showing off our video game collections, and I thought we could also show off our movie collections.


At any rate, I have recently finished ripping all of my DVD movies to .m4v (they're mine, and I don't share them, so it's Fair Use to back them up.)

  • Icons is my fave more! I hated ISO though.

  • lol. :D

    That is just the folder where the actual files are. I have a different folder with shortcuts that looks nicer (though doesn't show movies from within other folders like that one does).

    The ISOs folder is where I rip DVDs to (with DVDfab), and the icons folder has DVD covers in it. I use Handbrake to encode the movies to files.

  • Good idea (and you seem to have a good taste in movies as well :)). Here are the ones I own on DVD: http://mekestekst.eu/stuff/films/

  • I have no intention of listing all the movies I own. There's far too many.

    I will happily share an image of the RiffTrax'd movies I have though!

    Huh. THAT'S where all that hard-drive space went.

    ...and yes, I've donated to make up for the fact that I've downloaded these. Hush.

    (Also, the misspellings are intentional to make sure Windows places the films in order. Very annoying. For those wondering, Star Wars Episode IV½ is the Holiday Special, which is every bit as bad as you've heard and then some)

  • Yeah, not happening. I own over or about 500 movies on DVDs(I haven't counted in years). I don't think I'm at 1000 DVDs yet, especially since I haven't been buying many in the past year. Ballpark? 600-700. I emphasize DVDs, I hate people who brag about having hard drives full of downloaded movies and music. Yeah, good for you. I also own over 1000 CDs. That insanity has all but stopped though. I have more than enough music.

    Here's the bulk of my DVDs(including some TV). I have another old VHS cabinet full of DVDs plus a couple shelves of blu-rays in my room. I couldn't back up further, oh well.

    People who have tons of downloaded music (ie. a hundred gig or more) use file sharing to get them, so that really doesn't count. Seriously, I have a lot of music and several audiobooks but they come out to 16.2GB. Having hundreds of gigs of music means you either compose (like MusicallyInspired), which is cool, or else you're a pirate, which is not.

    I have recently discovered that buying movies via such as Amazon Instant Video is a bad idea because they are loaded with DRM, which is not cool. I rip and encode my own movies, and from DVD, so I have director commentaries included in secondary audio tracks on most of my files.

  • I know. Hey, if I sat down and ripped all my CDs, I'd probably have 100Gb or more... but that's not going to happen. I don't have that kind of time.

    Holy shit, I am impressed. And you have tons of stuff I would totally buy if I had the mone-

    mother of mercy you have Pelts.

    Same here.

    Interestingly, I find Chyron's and Darth's displays MORE personal. As impressive as Johro's collection is, I can hardly identify a single movie.

    Ahhhh well... one of these days, I might make actual photographs of my collection. Hopefully in a way that allows individual movie recognition... and I'll have to translate some of the German titles also. ;)
