I love Movies. I think that movies are one of the best forms of entertainment that we have. What I like better are movies that last forever. I usually buy the films on DVD that I would love to see more than once.
The one thing that I have trouble with is the changing formats. I remember having a lot VHS tapes when I was in High School and in College. I didn't like this format too much because the tapes can get warped and the picture quality is not that great. So when DVDs came out I had to re buy many of the movies I already had.
Now I have a pretty nice collection of DVDs. These are movies that I love to watch. I make sure that the windscreen version and at times, the director's cut. Lately, I have not even cared about the extra stuff, because I don't watch it. I just want the movie.
The issue now is HDTV and Blue Ray. Which means to me that DVDs are becoming the things of the past. I know that Blue Ray plays DVDs and that is cool but I am not trying to recreate my collection. I know people who stopped buying DVDs all together...and they do not have a Blue Ray! But, of course when they get one...then it is on.
Recently I have invested in a DVD ripping software that allows me to view movies on my iPhone. See...this I love. I can watch whatever I want anytime and anywhere. The reason why I bought the software is because I am not trying to buy movies off of iTunes. I already have a deep collection, so ripping movies I already own seems to be the way to go for me.
I have been holding out on getting an HDTV and Blue Ray. I am sure it is only a matter of time.
