    I'm so glad that I don't notice any of this stuff. I'm not pointing fingers at anyone in particular, but it seems that some people don't even enjoy the films anymore because they're too preoccupied with picking apart the flaws in the transfers.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

        I don't mean this as a slight to anyone here, it's usually a thing I notice in regular people, but they tend to appreciate the frame more than the picture. Meaning, somewhere along the ways regular joe was taught about HD this and 6 foot displays and whatnot and they seem to fetishize it over the actual content. If they walked into a museum they'd pick apart the frame of the Mona Lisa instead of marveling at the image itself. Everyone these days is an arm chair connoisseur. They have the latest and greatest displays but are watching sports and Taco Bell commercials. The quality of their frame is superfluous.

        I grew up watching a 9-inch black and white television that me and my sister had to share. I also played my Atari and NES games on it and it was years before I saw video games in color. I still don't sweat the random VHS transfer if it's the only way to see a specific title. I count myself lucky to be able to get a hold of all these wonderful titles from the far reaches of time and space.

        The comic forum I'm on has a similar fetish regarding book binding and reproduction. People will buy the same book dozens of times over just to get the one copy that lays perfectly flat, or has had the the absolute perfect reproduction this time for sure like there won't be another updated copy a few years down the road. Pictures of their bookshelves often show multiple high end books still in shrink wrap. Where the enjoyment in that?

        There was a post recently here talking about the endless posts on another forum that drones on and on about slipcovers. I'd love to tell all those people I throw all my slipcovers away. In fact I throw all the packaging away, and the discs go in a binder.

        I do get that if you pay for something you should expect to get your money's worth but sometimes it's taken to such an extreme I can't imagine the amount of enjoyment is equal to the price and time invested sweating the little stuff.

        Again, not trying to target anyone specific here, just something I've noticed in various fandoms. Hell, when I go into a MJ dispensary or a liquor store I see people holding products up to the light and complaining about minute flaws and making royal declarations regarding the quality. And these are winos and pot heads. (as am I)

          I'm not sure if you buy stuff from Vinegar Syndrome's website, but there's actually an option to buy the discs without the slipcover and they're almost 3 dollars cheaper without them; I've been choosing this option for a while and if you're buying several discs at once, you can save a good chunk of change.

            You're unhinged and need professional help.

                They weren't when I bought Pigs, Secta Siniestra & Malabimba in the Halfway to Black Friday sale earlier this year.
