Why do people buy several copies?

What's the point in buying more than one copy of one movie on dvd?

The only time I have bought a dvd that I all ready own was with Reservoir Dogs and that was only because of the 15th anniversary edition with the gas can case.

I tend to wait for a bit now to make sure I get the dvd with the best features and best case.

Some are psychotic, some buy extras as copies for others.

The only DVD I have more than one copy of is Reservoir Dogs. I have the 2 disk special edition and I have the 15th anniversary edition with the gas can case. The only time I will buy more than one copy is if a seriously cool edition is released.

That's what I did with Reservoir Dogs, but usually if a nicer edition of a film I like comes out, I'll sell the one I have and use that towards the new edition. Hardly ever happens though because I usually find out all the editions before I buy or wait until a new one is released that will probably happen with some films.

Because I like extra stuff....like when you order a regular hamburger...why order extra bacon, cheese, grill onions, etc....? you know...it tastes even better.

...I always like more.

He is more, why buy FOUR copies of the same film, instead of just one special edition with all the extras on(that you like WD)...

I couldn't sell my 2 disk Reservoir Dogs though because it is part of a set with Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown.

Ooo I wouldn't sell mine, it's one of the collection where you can get Mr. Brown, Mr. Orange and so on as single characters on the front cover.

Topic reminds me of a garage sale I went to once. This fellow had 15-20 copies of several Disney movies (Fantasia, Lion King, etc.) and I asked him why he had so many. He said "Oh, you know how it is, you're out shopping and you can't remember which movies you have."

Um, if I had purchased a movie 12 unique times already, I think it would sink in. He seemed like a perfectly normal guy otherwise.

I buy several copies because (1) for my family, as they want a copy as well, (2) to sell on eBay (3) different editions have different stuff than standard dvd

I've never been one to buy multiple copies of the same movie for selling purposes.

However, I have bought the same movie multiple times because newer editions came out. I would sell the old one later.

I feel bad for T.M, who's looking for the Mr. Pink edition of Reservoir Dogs. I sold mine when I got the gas can DVD. I didn't see a need to collecting all of those 'cause it's the same DVD with different slip covers.

I have two copies of Donnie Darko and Daredevil because I want the original and the director's cuts of them. I have two copies of A Nightmare on Elm Street, one is in the box set and the other is the SE with loads of features.

I think he was lying to you. People know those Disney movies are going back to the Disney Vault and will become valuable when they do. So buy extra copies to sell later when people really want them.

I'm talking about for let's say "The Dark Knight", people say they'll be getting 2-3 copies of the same film, ediution, on the same day. Why?
