Well It's the age old arguement of film vs Digital. The truth be told is both have wonderful qualities about them. Both have advantages and disadvantages. So it's nice we have all these choices to complete our home video theater. It's just a shame that VCR video is gone. I think we possibily could have done a little more with it , to include the option in the digital age.

I think it depends on where you go.Most places Dvds are expences but if you want to buy an older dvd then it is pretty cheap and that is fine by me.

Laserdiscs last longer than both VHS and DVD.

The big problem I came to have with VHS, was that I wanted to watch films letterboxed in their original format, and too few of them were.

And VHS is the first to fall apart. It dies a little death every time it's run through the hubs. You start getting those ways lines at the bottom...

Right now, it TVs you have to look carefully at. Those HDTVs with TruMotion - that looks unnatural to me. Things are too sharp, and the movement reminds me of video.

£10 here in Britain anyway is around $14/15 in America. £10 is usually older releases on the dvds or if lucky a blu ray release. I just bought a new release blu ray for £11.

Unless he means pirate copies, but then you are an idiot who has been conned.

Ok, DVD's are a certain quality by nature (4.37 gigs, High Definition that is), blue ray are a lot higher quality because the file size is higher (14.7 or something like that)

The overall quality of the film itself depends on how it was made, compressed and burnt, its just circumstantial so you can't say all dvds sucks or are good, its a false equivalency.
