I always seem to be about 10 years behind, regarding technology - The novelty of getting hold of a 2nd hand VHS recorder in the early 90s was mind blowing - and then VHS (very slowly) started releasing widescreen versions - even more mind blowing, as it was in many cases, people of my generation’s first opportunity to see the correct composition for many film classics.
Similarly, when I first saw the DVD of OUTW on a proper widescreen telly, it made all those 100s of VHS tapes suddenly redundant
What concerns me is that once you get accustomed to a specific format and level of detail … the novelty soon wears off, and that initial, wow of amazement becomes just a standard experience.
Sure, I’d love to have the luxury of picking up all my favs on BD … but pretty soon that system will also be redundant … so it takes me back to the time when just getting to see the film was the important thing, not the acquiring of the ultimate version.
I only have a few BDs and even so when I go to watch a DVD again, I find myself analysing picture quality rather than sitting back and enjoying the film. So, I understand perfectly where @ENNIOO is coming from.
