I was wondering if the forum 'At The Movies & On DVD' should be changed to something like 'At The Movies & On Home Media' or 'At The Movies, On DVD, & On BluRay'

Good idea, Smiddy, but I foresee a trend that could lead to an uncontrollable tendency toward 'media ad infinitum'.

How about just "At The Movies".

Or just "The Movies", because I might be "at" my house.

I would have gone with "Home Cinema". :)

You can blame me for original name of the forum....

That works.
I read a report that said the typical symptoms of stress were eating too much, drinking too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Who are they kidding? That's my idea of a perfect day.
