I don't know why, but they keep releasing so many TV series and cannot help myself buying  :laugh:
And added to that I started to buy anime boxsets (I did not take these into account when making my New Year's resolution  ::) )

You are preaching to the choir, Tom... ;)

My goal was to buy less than last year. While I am with 122 (+4 in the mail) still well within the range below 168, I doubt I'll make it. The last three months of the year are very full with great new releases :shrug:

Up until know I paid 1156.31€ (which are currently $1644) for DVDs. Since this is my first year I've been entering this data I have no comparison, but I do remember paying 100€ per Star Trek TNG and DS9 season, thus paying at least 700€ in two consecutive years.

OK... I don't expect to get any more DVDs in the next few days... so here is some totals I been keeping track of... So...

For the Year 2008...
New Titles Added: 167
Retail Price: $4,700.29
Price Paid: $1,731.00
Amount Saved: $2,969.29

First Item of Year: This was a tie between Halloween: 2 Disc Special Edition: Unrated and Resident Evil: Extinction
Last Item of the Year: Christmas Gifts... The Incredible Hulk (2 TV Movie Collection), The Facts of Life: Seasons 1 & 2 and Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Season 4
Most Expensive: The Brady Bunch: Complete Series for $89.99
Least Expensive: 1408, Dead Silence, Evan Almighty, Planet Terror and Vacancy all tied for $0.49 joining Columbia House.

I guess that is not too bad this year. :) Though I didn't get as many DVDs this year as I did last year. But I have been concentrating more on TV Shows then movies... so that takes away from the totals a little.

This year I bought 109 items which resulted in 455 profiles. The total costs for this were 1,628.60€ (I transform foreign currencies at once to see what I've actually paid).

The average price was 15.66€ per item which is pretty amazing since there are quite a number of season boxes and even full series boxes among them.

My first item this year was the "Angel" complete box which costed 82.19€.



My last item was "The Dark Knight" which costed 9.85€.



My most expensive item was the "Stargate SG-1" complete box which costed 137.05€.

My most expensive item this year was "Smallville: Season 7" for $40,62, directly followed by the "Death Note" movie boxset for $39,99.
My first item this year was "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella".
My probably last items were today's Blu-ray titles (including "The Dark Knight", "WALL-E", "Ratatouille", "Enchanted", "Iron Man", "Spider-Man 3").
My least expensive item this year (not counting gifts) was Idaho Transfer for $0.87.

Define "best value"? Emotionally? Price/Minute?

I managed to add 72

My first purchases for the year were Borat, Breach, Hot Buzz and Zodiac (all bought at Blockbuster - used)

My last purchase for the year was Hellboy II: The Golden Army

The number included 3 blu-rays which I received free when I bought my HDTV and PS3 (50 First Dates, Invincible and Night at the Museum).

All in all a good year  ;D. I usually average 50-60 DVDs a year

My average prices paid (not including gifts and such in calculation):
For USD titles: $19.11 (135, a lot of these were TV boxsets)
For EUR titles: €9.35 (41 titles)
For GPB titles: £16.78 (6 titles)

Makes the sum of
$2579.99
€383.47
£100.67

 :o

At least less than last year.
My resolution for 2009: Keep it less than that  :whistle:
