A poll. About renting movies.
It’s been several weeks since the last poll. All regular posting was put on hold during the festival. And to be honest, it’s a bit difficult getting back into regular programming. But I’ll forge ahead, for all our sakes.
The last poll was about movie purchasing habits.
Seventeen percent of you say, “I buy everything I like! Including the most recent box sets and director cuts, I’ll buy basically anything.” To be honest, that’s much higher than I thought it would be and I kind of envy you. But on the other hand, when I look at my own collection, I see 85% regret.
Nobody picked “I buy quite a bit. I’m not so concerned with collector’s sets, or anything, I just buy what I like.” I thought this would be the most frequently chosen option.
Another 17% said, I’ll have to be sure I’ll watch the movie at least a couple more times before I buy anything.”
A quarter of you said you mostly let the price decide, and you’ll pick up a good deal whenever you come across one.
But the most popular selection, chosen by a third of voters, said you only pick up maybe ten or fifteen DVDs a year, mostly just your favorites.
One person said they rarely, if ever purchase movies.
This new poll is about your renting habits. I’m a Netflix user, and very occasional RedBox patron. I never go to rental stores any more. What about you?
