There's something to be said for having a robust DVD/Blu-Ray collection at home. Streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime are affordable and work well, but it's just not the same when you don't physically own any of the content.
And should your internet connection bail on you? You're straight out of luck.
Owning a healthy collection of discs also comes with other benefits - trade-in value, showing those sleek steelbooks off to friends - that make it a worthwhile investment.
Another benefit - overlooked, but nonetheless positive - are the easter eggs and secrets studios often include in home media releases of their movies.
You can find everything from nifty behind-the-scenes clips to alternate trailers and secret interviews on a variety of DVD and Blu-Ray sets, and while some of these do make their way online, it feels gratifying to seek them out yourself; it's the reward you receive for following a breadcrumb trail or locating a hidden menu you never knew existed.
You'll be surprised how many discs are packing content like this, and if you have the necessary movies at home, these secrets are definitely worth seeking out.
