Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum but have been visiting for 5 years. I have 1200 DVDs in my collection and i gotta tell ya, after more than a decade of collecting movies i feel the same way about it as i did back in 1997. I started buying movies even before i had a player. I have no real interest in blu-ray for one main reason: i do not believe older films will look that much better on the format than they look on regular DVD unless the studios physically restore every film they release and thats not gonna happen. "Digitally Remastered" isnt good enough. As for extras, nobody needs 3 commentaries, 2 discs and a 2 hour making-of on every movie, especially newer stuff. All in all, i'm perfectly content with my library as it is and, yes, original artwork on the package is very important too. Long live standard DVD!
