Its crazy.... all I can think is its not laziness or forgettting that we have them but more of a sense that other people will be watching them as well. Almost community viewing rather than hiding away on your own.
That or it is just me and I am lazy and forgetful.
Speak for yourself. I have a couple of my Indy Jones DVD's within reach of my disc player back at home at this very moment. I had Last Crusade on a continuous loop last week and Crystal Skull and Raiders two weeks prior. They are some of my favorite go-to feel good movies, especially when I want a pick me up or to watch a great adventure flick since they are the best!
Admittedly, sometimes I'll have them on while doing house work and tune in and out, but usually I'll give them full attention, as with last few weeks.
Now I'm due to watch TOD soon, and wanting to watch bonus feature documentaries again soon. Sometimes I try to take a year between views, just to keep them fresh and not get bored with them, but I find I seldom tied of them. Excited, because a couple of my buddies haven't seen them in a long time, and only once, so they barely remember them, so I'll be reintroducing them to Raiders on Blu-Ray on their giant screen 4K TV soon. They're in for a treat. Btw, you are right in that I also sometimes drop what I'm doing and will watch them immediately if they happen to be on TV.
