I'll probably have a lot of movies that will never be shown again anywhere.

Lots of folks like nostalgia. It's hard to part with them. I still have my record albums and cassette tapes, mostly 60s and 70s rock.

For me with all the streaming available for Anime, Music, and services like NEtflix for films, I just find it hard to justify the physical clutter caused by owning discs anymore. Furthermore, I just have a philosophical outlook on life in which "owning" stuff is overrated, I prefer experiencing stuff. For example, I can "experience" a hit song any time and as often as I want because of YouTube. I don't have to "own" the song.....

I do own one Anime Series, a few hip-hop CDs from the 1990s, and the Batman Trilogy (will add Fast & Furious collection soon) but that's only because those for me have unlimited replayability.

For those of you who are still buying how do you approach your physical purchases?
For some reason streaming or getting it digitally is better..

More convenient, especially away from home. But not the same quality as physical collection when you get home!

Sentimental reasons my foot. I don't trust 'streaming' or the 'cloud'. At least I know what version I have of something(original, remastered, colorized, pasteurized, homogenized, etc) if I can hold it in my hand.

I read it all. I still go for more convenient and zero clutter. Big benefits in my world. I trust streaming. I don't need it in my hands. And I certainly don't want a lot of crap in my home.
