Default The 'To Watch' Pile

I've just been looking at goodies to buy tomorrow, my pay day, when Mrs Make Them Die Slowly pointed at the "to watch pile" and said "Why not watch them before you waste more money". Setting aside the ensuing arguement about waste of money, I did a quick count up and realised I have 48 DVDs to watch and 4 box sets, including the massive Hammer and Meyer sets.

So, how many films do you have waiting to be watched?

Also, does anyone else on occasion look at their to watch pile and see it more as a chore rather than entertainment?

Not an exact count, but an approx....

60 DVDs
30 taped off Sky/TV (Some dating back to Christmas........2008)
20 or so stored on DVR (Plus TV series.)

Plus I have a rental account with Lovefilm that sees at least 20 rentals a month drop through my letterbox if I watch them within 48 hours of delivery.

And I often look at my to watch pile and think, "I fancy seeing (Insert old fav here) again tonight".

I have 27 blurays and 20 DVDs to watch at the moment - a few boxsets in the DVDs, Twin Peaks, The Sopranos and Mad Men series 1 and the Death Note anime boxset. This time last year it was probably at 250-odd and I've still been buying lots in that time. A lot of the time I end up watching movies I've just bought, e.g. over the weekend I bought Hider in the House, Terror at the Opera, Life During Wartime, Oasis of Fear and The Stepfather and managed to watch them all despite having a load of DVDs that I've bought years ago still unwatched.

This is an on-going battle at the Broonage household.

I try to watch at least 4 a week.
