I do think they are kind of pricey. I only buy the ones that I really love. Even though I am likely to watch the movie over and over.
I usually wait until they are in the bargain bin

yes, way too expensive.

I don't really buy DVDs given that I rarely watch movies more than once, so $20 for me to watch a movie one time - I don't think so! Sometimes, though, I find movies for $3 or something at the discount store or even less at the thrift store. Still, though, I only get movies I *really* would want to own.
I used to troll the used Disc stores before money got too tight. That was video game and movie. Actually, I could probably get some decent titles for my last-gen systems if I skim the food budget.
We have a subscription to the Netflix webservice right now, only good if you're into expired seasons of shows missed due to not being able to receive basic broadcast... Or really old movies where only 20% ever reached cult status. Hulu is low-quality for such limited access to more recent stuff with commercials.
Right now, I could probably budget-skim for DVD's, but without television, I'm completely unaware of what wants to actually get my attention.

I hit the $5 bin at "Wally-World". My DD got three DVD's yesterday for $15. Pro-rate that for the many times you'll watch them compared to the price of a ticket, gas to the theater, price of popcorn and drink (even if it's bottled water!)...
Then there are the second-hand game/video places, yard sales, and Goodwill. Some people give DVDs as gifts to people who really don't want them. I rarely pay full price for any movies or books thanks to places like that.
