i still haven't jumped on the Blu-Ray bandwagon... most of the films i enjoy the most were made in the 70's-80's and are supposed to have that grainy filmstock look- let's face it, some movies were not meant to be shown in crystal clear high definition.
Movies being produced nowadays, ones actually filmed with High Def equipment- now those do look/sound pretty snazzy, but it's probably just a matter of time until some new format come out making Blu Ray obsolete, and forcing us to purchase the same movie(s) ...again

According to an interview with the producer: "And since everyone wants to know, there are three very brief snippets of Eric Stoltz incorporated into one of the documentaries."

Better than no Stoltz footage at all I guess.

I have to disagree, I have both old and new films on blu ray. I thought the same thing but working in production there are ways of enhancing things now that there weren't before. Their craft is getting smoother and cleaner. I have lots of great films to watch, but you also have to have a great tv to watch them on. If your just watching on regular your not enjoying the full aspect.

It's like saying your going to jump into a shopping cart down a hill to enjoy the same experience of a roller coaster. Thats just unlikely.
