I will admit that, while my DVD collection is large, it doesn't contain 'essential' DVD's as the size of my collection would allude to someone who is now a movie lover. I never was a "movie" person until HT & DVD opened the door to viewing quality movies in my home. Now that I am hooked on movies, I try to purchase movies that I always ignored when I really wasn't into movies. The problem is, when I first started collecting DVD's, 80% of my purchases were new titles and movies that I loved...now that I've had my fill of movies, I am starting to get into the films that I should have watched YEARS ago. Anyways, for example; I don't own American Graffiti but I want to purchase it. Now going on Amazon, I see it was released in 1998. Not that it's a tough decision, but sometimes I get turned off by purchasing older releases. They just don't seem as pristine. Knowing how much the technology has changed, I'm often turned away. I mean, the only good thing is, they are usually pretty cheap, so I'll end up getting it, but.... Does anyone else feel this way?
