The only problems I have with the new paradigm are:But again, I personally can’t see this as being all bad when I can press a button on my remote and watch nearly any movie that’s in print. I don’t want to go back to the days of having to go to a specialty store to find something outside of the top hundred titles and then have something special ordered and delivered a month later. In the 1980s, it was a week or months long project if someone said “You should see...”. Now, it’s a button push. On the whole, this is a tremendous benefit.
- You can't truly own it unless you have a shiny disc in your hands.
- Studios have already shown their willingness to alter original classics to suit "the times."
