Yes.

35mm film, film in general, Blu-rays especially if I want to see the film twice, CDs if I'm interested.

These things will never die.

I still buy physical media. I guess it's because I trust that will all be there still, where if something bad happens to you hard drives, then it's gone, etc.

That's right. Digital storage is nice, but...

I'm using digital media like my Amazon Prime but my collections of movie and TV DVDs are my standby. There may be the time when I can't afford the cable bill anymore and I hate OTA TV. They show as much commercials as programmings.

The DVDs are 100% commercial free and I have two players and a player/recorder.

Glad to hear common sense is prevailing in many of the recent comments!

Oh for crying out loud. It's not a matter of common sense. It's a matter of priorities and preference. What's right for you isn't right for everyone.

In the case you haven't noticed, physical media - in general, all of it - is now in the same position as eight-track cartridges were about thirty years ago: Flooding the second hand retails and tag sales, on its way OUT.

That's what all forms of physical media, from vinyl and cassettes to books, face presently:

Total extinction within the next 20 years. That's what those of us who care are fighting.

Well, there's a reason it's on its way out.

Collect old physical media all you want. Just recognize that not everyone wants mountains of DVDs, CDs, cassettes, etc. Just because you want to own all that stuff doesn't mean it's right or "common sense" for everyone.

Point well taken as we are moving into the digital age. There are still those who likes to collect stuff as DVDs and CDs. Who are we to judge?

I don't think anyone is. The judgement seems to be of those who don't wish to collect those things. We apparently don't have common sense.
