My uncle (who owned LDs in the mid-eighties) and I were discussing the pros and cons of DVD. How this damn, region code thing really sucks to the both of us. He used to collect Japanese import discs. Although, since he has no desire to spend the extra money to seek out a multi region player. Looking at some of the American titles he had in their Japanese incarnations, I got to thinking. Were Japanese Laserdiscs superior to their US counterparts?
