Just out of curiosity, I was wondering how many of us focus on the classics. Out of your collection, what # of them are pre-1980 movies? I know. Maybe I should make it pre- 1970 movies, but I'm just thinking in terms of DVD. People tend to consider anything without DD 5.1 to be archaic. Sometimes I look at my collection and consider getting rid of some of my guilty "modern" pleasures and focus on great film, but sometimes the lack of features or perceived quality prevents me from shelling out $$ for the classics. Out of my 65 DVD's, only 14 are pre 1980 films. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Fantasia Casablanca The Third Man Seven Samurai Vertigo North by Northwest Lawrence of Arabia The Manchurian Candidate Dr Strangelove Deliverance Jaws Close Encounters of the Third Kind Superman Does the "dated" aspect of many earlier films prevent one from buying a classic and opting for something like...."The Animal" or "Mummy Returns" just because of the advances in sound and picture?
