The thing I think of as I read these Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD vs. whatever news article is how much of my money is going to go down the drain if I decide to be an early adapter, or how much time I'm going to waste searching for out of print copies on eBay if I wait until the winner is declared.
Bleh, I doubt it really matters. Neither Blu-Ray nor HD DVD will make crappy movies any better. Here's an idea! Give us a disc format that makes craptastic films palatable.
