My goal is to only buy rare movies or movies I know I'll watch repeatedly, everything else falls into Netflix territory.  At $10 a month, it is far cheaper than cable and serves the same purpose.

What sucks with dvd collections is that you end up losing your favorites. You lend our favorite movies to friends who haven't seen them and what they do is not watch it and never ever bring it back

Thats why I never lent out movies... No matter what. Been burned too many times.

Half my collection is from burning people.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Don't you just end up buying the special edition that comes out soon after losing it?  I'm not sure how you've been burned yet.

I recently traded in a bunch of DVDs for store credit. I'm replacing some of them with Blu-Rays eventually, but others I hadn't watched in years and I decided to get rid of them.

$135 store credit. It won't cover all the Blu-Rays I want to get to replace certain DVDs, but its a good start. I plan on further clearing out titles that I haven't watched yet. My DVD collection right now is like a depressing monument to where I spend a lot of my money.

There's a chain in the Dallas area called Movie Trading Company.

I do this all the time. When my dad gave me his huge DVD collection of action movies starring Sylvester Stallone, etc I was like "Halleluljah! I will trade this shit for some weird pretentious stuff!" and went crazy in the store. I don't even buy movies anymore.

I was going to put all my Criterion DVD's on Ebay but found out I could only get $3-$4 for each one. It's not even worth it. Collectors items my ass.

$3-$4? I have never seen even used Criterion at that price. If you have any OOP there are a lot of people (I think?) who would pay a nice sum.
