    I'm bored - so I'm asking you to list which DVDs you're taking, since generally people only seem to take about ten - are you going to take your favourite films, just comedies, sitcoms... documentaries?

    Go on. Humour me.

    I'm taking them all up and just storing them in a box somewhere.

    But then again, I own very few DVD's so my collection won't exactly take up a lot of room

    I took all of mine without the boxes. I had the most on my corridor I think but they weren't to most peoples taste so I always had people coming along asking to borrow one looking through the collection and realising that 1970's sci-fi wasn't what they wanted :p:

    Thought about putting them all on a hard drive but having the actual disc means its easy to just pop round to someones room with it and watch a film.

    I liked to abuse the library dvd collection too. Supposedly for academic use only but they had some classics..

    last year i took all of them, and trust me, they came in useful!!

    if your starting uni this year, i HIGHLY RECCOMMEND taking as many DVDs as possible, because there will be boring nights in on your own. also try and buy some new ones, boxsets if possible, such as the sopranos.

    i used to love comin in pissed out my tree and wacking a good Pacino film on. i NEVER sleep.

    I no longer use torrents as I got a hell of a lot of viruses from files I downloaded. I use youtube or rent/buy the DVD.
