Well, I don't know much about the technical side of it, but I agree with some of what OP says. I watched X-Men on blu-ray and frankly, I was shocked
that people were making such a big deal about the way it looked. I find most people are too easily amused these days. Honestly, when I first saw the
thing, I thought I was watching a behind the scenes featurette. It looked like crap video! Something's just aren't meant to look that way. When I go
see Lord of the Rings or Star Wars, I'm trying to get away from "real" life, at least for a few hours. And as for older films. The grain is what I
love about them! I'd shoot myself in the head if Taxi Driver ever looked liked it was shot on video. Sure, they will eventually make digital "look"
like film, but until that day there not getting a dime from me. There's plenty of dopes out there who will so I guess they'll survive. Don't get me
wrong. I love where all this technology is going, it's getting better and better and not too expensive (heck, you can buy a dvd player for the price
of a VCR rental in the old days). I wait until things get a little more affordable and see if it sticks around. I'm usually right about these things.
I saw both Beta and the Laser Disc meet thier early demise.
