The postman visited again today, its been a while since my last delivery and this time I went for something different. VCDS.
Just to be clear, I don't buy vcds anymore, as far as I'm concerned it was never a great format to start with and nowadays it feels as archaic as VHS, however many movies that I haven't seen are available quite cheaply on ebay on this format. A guy in France was selling quite a few titles, all with pretty low starting prices and offering reasonable shipping rates. So I thought what the hell!
Here are the titles
Troublesome night 8 was thrown in free for buying six vcds from him, I had never heard of a few of these but for less than £2 each including shipping it was worth a punt.
They may all be a bag of crap but I see this as part of my growth as a human being. Let me explain, this turnaround was inspired by Kingwho? the fact is I'm a terrible snob about video quality and I'm trying my best to care less about it.
The reason I'm snobbish about it is I have a pretty awesome Home cinema setup that has taken years to get right, don't get me wrong its not a pro install or anything like that but it does feature some well chosen components (lower mid range kit but the best I could afford) that are well set up. It was expensive (to me at least) but as I love movies so much, it was worth it. I love watching movies on it and unfortunately vcds just don't cut the mustard.
Yes I know its the content that matters but I want to see the best quality version I can. I find it hard to ignore if a better version is available, especially if its a favourite. I see this as a first step. Now maybe instead of buying the same movies over and over, my spare cash will go on different movies and that has to be a good thing!
Anyone care to comment? What kind of system do you have? Do you care at all about video quality (You don't have to answer that one Kingwho?) Or is it just me around here that does?
