@capguncowboy: I remember those. Looked like a CD the size of a 33 vinyl? I always used to wonder who bought those when I would see them in Tower Records...

I'll add a format, too.

VHS: Can't remember, probably something from Columbia House.
Laserdisc: Monty Python and the Holy Grail
DVD: The Matrix, I think.
Bluray: Spiderman 3, it was free with the PS3. Unfortunately, the PS3 died a while ago.

Not too sure on my answers as it's tough to remember, but

VHS (that I personally owned, not counting what my family had): She's All That. Birthday present from sister. I don't even really like that movie. I think the first one I bought was Ten Things I Hate About You.

DVD: Pretty sure it was Baz Luhrmann's Red Curtain Trilogy (William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, Strictly Ballroom) which I mostly got for Moulin Rouge. I just checked and I've got that on VHS too.

Blu-Ray: No player yet so haven't gotten any.

We first had Beta growing up though... mostly stuff taped off TV. Cartoons, and the Ewok movies, and I think my Dad had bought some of the Indiana Jones movies too.

Only one I remember was DVD. It was some weird U2 Joshua Tree "Behind the Scenes" movie about the album. I think it was made by VH1 and it was actually really really good for true "behind the scene" stuff. Not just some promotional nonsense you see now-a-days.

Anybody remember videodiscs? NOT laserdiscs - they were like LPs in a big flat cartridge, and you had to flip them over halfway through the movie?

Well, I had the '70s Spider-Man TV movie on videodisc. My family rented it, and then the place we rented it from went out of business, so I got to keep it.

@jason toon: I remember we first rented a VCR (from a place called Curtis Mathis) because at the time they were too expensive to buy, and I think my parents weren't sure if VHS or Beta was better.

Anyways.. wasn't the videodisc the precursor to a laserdisc? I thought laserdiscs were cool when they came out. They were big, but it had something to do with lasers! And, to a younger boy... lasers are cool.

Laser Disc: Billy Squier
Beta: The Towering Inferno (used)

Yes, "videodiscs" (actually, the RCA CED format) were a competitor to Laser Discs from 1981-1985.
