Call me crazy, but I think there's a certain charm to movies on VHS... the softness of the image can sometimes work to the movie's advantage. Maybe it's just nostalgia, though.

I am enjoying my growing blu-ray collection, but sometimes the image is so clear and crisp that I spend half the time in amazement at the clarity and detail that I forget to actually watch the movie!

It would appear that you're not alone, check this new documentary out:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...this?ref=video

Some more info on the project here.

One interesting comment in the video is that 50% of VHS content is not available on any other format.

I still have the last VCR that I bought, a Mitsubishi HS-HD2000U DVHS, and am still using one of the last Mits DLP TV's that had dual IEEE 1394 inputs. I also still have hundreds of tapes, both standard and SVHS, on which I have recorded a bunch of stuff, though it's mostly movies from pay-cable, but also have every Super Bowl from XX on tape.

I like keeping "legacy" stuff around, hell, I still have an old PC that runs DOS.
