Best way to go about selling Blu-Rays / DVDs?
 
I had a bad habit of buying DVDs and Blu-Rays and never even watching them. I only have a select few I want to keep and have around 150 or so I want to sell.

Among these are about 20-30 Criterion movies.

Do you think the Criterions I should sell as a lot or individually?

Is Craigslist my best option or is ebay better?

If anyone has sold their collection of DVDs before, I'd appreciate the help.

I would be willing to see what you have and maybe buy a few of them. You could PM some titles if you like.

They are usually movies that don't get funded to go on DVD by major studios or something.

Criterion is a company that does that and they print very short runs of the DVD and include a shit ton of Extras.

I just looked some up on Amazon and those are pretty expensive. I am cheap so I might be out on those ones except for Life Aquatic. I ****ing love that movie.

I've bought about 150 blu rsys off of eBay. The way most people buy on there is on small lots of 3-7 movies based around a genre. I spent on average around 4 or 5 bucks per movie in lots like that.

Let me know some of the rest that you have and I would definitely be down for buying a small lot of movies.

phisherman 12-25-2012 07:17 AM

I'd love to get the Robocop and For All Mankind from you unless you're going to eBay all of them.

Fried Meat Ball! 12-25-2012 07:19 AM

Please do not Craigslist or eBay them until you've given the folks here a run at 'em! :D

I'll go through your list today and let you know what I might be interested in.

Agreed with this. Set up a list... maybe on a Google doc or something.

Not true. Criterion focuses on what they consider important and/or groundbreaking movies, or what they say are "the defining moments of cinema" or something like that. They do amazing transfers and generally have incredible extra features.

That said, they have a love affair with Wes Anderson (seriously, WTF?), and occasionally come out with strange releases (Armageddon? The Rock? Seriously, WTF?).
