I'm trying to build a collection of classics I know I will always like, because in the end I know the majority of movies I loved wont move me the same way in a years time.

Recent additions:
Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain Special Edition
Near Dark

High definition DVD is on the way, and I'm going to have to make some choices on what gets upgraded and what is good enough for plain ol' DVD. I'm really hoping the 4-layer Blu-Ray DVD becomes the standard, but I fear that's a pipe dream. It holds a whopping 100GB of data. The current standard is somewhere around 54GB and HDDVD is a mere 45GB. The studios are negotiating behind the scenes to agree on a single format(just like they did with standard DVD), so I think the choice is clear on which one should prevail.
Yes, it's clear that HD-DVD should win, because in the end it isn't just about capacity, if it was neither of these formats would win.
