The Hold List
« on: August 24, 2012, 11:05:42 am »
I am always maxed out with 25 Holds at the Library for DVD's I'm waiting for and usually I have plenty more that I want to check out. I usually write those that I can't Hold on paper. But like always, they get lost and I forget what title it was. So, this Thread is geared strictly to extending your Hold List, while also doing your part to save trees.

If it weren't for the Library, half of what I have reviewed so far, I would have never gotten around to seeing. I spent way too much money on DVD's (Blind Buys) that just didn't pan out as keepers. The Mom and Pop Stores never carried the Big releases until like a year after the fact and Blockbuster was like paying for a new copy for Rentals on release day, so that was out. I just stopped buying all together and missed out on a ton of releases during a 5 year window. So, I'm slowly hitting those titles and keeping up with current releases as well.

I will be updating my Extended Hold List with new titles to keep them all in one place, instead of just posting new stuff.

Big update to my Extended List. I included movies I own on DVD in with the list as I want to work those in with the stuff that I've yet to see.

I always have 400+ DVDs on my Netflix queue... I'm such an addict, but it beats buying.  Lot of it is TV shows, since I don't get HBO it's the only way I can see Game of Thrones or BoardWalk Empire (just finished the first seasons of both and loved them... and I have such a crush on Kelly MacDonald).

I don't have HBO or Showtime so I have to avoid spoilers and wait for it on DVD. I actually prefer it this way. Shows like Thrones, Breaking Bad, Dexter play so much better when I can knock out 2-3 episodes a day. If I had to wait a week for one episode, I'd blow my brains out.

Exactly.  And HD over the air isn't as good as HD off a disc.

And now I have a rule:  I'll only watch ONE HBO season of one show at a time, otherwise it gets a little muddly in my mind.

I got rid of premium cable a long time ago and I haven't looked back since. It was Mac that got me into the idea of hitting my local library for all the free DVD "rentals". The amount of money I have saved can't even be calculated. Well, it can, but I don't have that much time to sit down and do math.

I own a few of these on DVD already. The rest I will have to get from the Library. But my guess is that everyone has the same idea of knocking these out for Halloween and if there are only a couple of DVD per movie, it's gonna be a long wait.

I've seen everything that's in my Halloween List. I just want to do nothing but Scary movies for October in Marathon style. For the Main List I would say maybe 1/4 I haven't seen.
