That, if u only believe the guy who told if u try anything new or if u ever meet Angelina Jolie u would immediately divorce ur wife. U and me know live is not this one-dimensional. For someone who owns a large collection of anything, I assume there is an intrinsic love for it, and not just because it was THEN the latest and greatest.
Never look at at a BR? that's just silly.
Never to own a BR player? Now, if your TV upconverts the DVDs good, ur set, but if it doesn't, u may want to own a BR player, because they will play DVDs and automatically upconvert to HDTV resolution.
About collecting... Recently I Netflix-stream The Fantastic Voyage
. Is a classic right, maybe you have it in your own collection. This version they clean it up am sure, it's now in color, but that's not it, I was a little disappointed at the content. After 50 years of science, what it shows is not so awe-inspiring anymore, lots of kids knows about immune systems and blood cell-air exchange. So while the big argument in this thread is about look, I may have another argument about outdated contents. That's another pandora box.
In the same breath, 2 years ago, I finally junked my VHS and my LPs. The online stuff now is so much more convenient. But Jim is right, VHS-DVD, big difference (analog-digital), DVD-BR (higher bandwidth only), some of us here say not so huge.
