Last week, we asked how many Blu-ray discs you own. For this week’s poll, let’s find out how many of those movies in your collection you’ve actually watched.
Like many collectors, I’ve managed to acquire a large library of movies on disc, more than I could possibly have enough time to actually sit down and watch. Until now, I hadn’t really given much thought to counting the disparity between how many movies I’ve watched and how many I haven’t. However, I did have the foresight to track my viewing habits by flagging titles in DVD Profiler after I’ve finished watching them. That allowed me to export a report and do some math.
Between DVD, HD DVD, and Blu-ray, I own 956 movies on disc at present. (I’m not bringing Laserdisc into this.) It turns out that I’ve watched 522 of them, or approximately 55%.
To break that out a little further, I’ve watched 44% of my Blu-rays, also 44% of my HD DVDs, and 73% of my DVDs.
Because I realize that not everyone will be able to pull up an exact count like I have, we’ll keep the poll to broad estimates. I’ll let you make your own decisions about counting methods.
