    Or to push you to buy a multidisk player and avoid it entirely.

    Got a Lion King CAV box set in this afternoon, $100+ when it came out, $9 eBay. Cool! Lithographs pack was still sealed, too! Had that nice '90s new thing smell'.

    Spent all afternoon going through the bonus features discs and drawing a comic, very pleasant time. The multi-speed setting is really nice for perusing extensive still frame galleries, 1/90 or 1/30 seems to work really well for 'em.

    Watching the Criterion disc of 'The Burmese Harp' now, black and white films particularly look amazing on this thing.

    Yeller's post about cleaning up Blade Runner reminded me that I meant to post this:

    http://www.amazon.com/NOVUS-7056-Pla...=novus+plastic

    It's a plastic cleaner and polish that does wonders for removing small surface scratches from LDs. It won't fix larger scratches, but it will make them a bit smaller too. It's part of a three step clean/repair system, but the third bottle is for really deep scratches on motorcycle windshields and stuff, I figure that's not needed for LD's since a scratch that deep probably would irreparably damage the disc.

    It also worked wonders on a certain white PS2 I picked up as well

    Outstanding!

    My Blade Runner disc has some spotty business going on Disc 2, it plays absolutely fine but looks like hell, like little spots of coffee under the plastic. I was worried it was the much-talked-about 'Laser Rot', but it plays fine, so whatever. Old media!

    That sounds like rot to be but if it plays fine who cares.

    T2 box set should be in tomorrow, we watched the Lion King last night. Nice warm film look to it, vs. the Blu Ray's a-bit-too-crisp and computer-y picture.

  8. I was starting to warm up to laserdisc advocacy until you said you liked the Lion King ld better because the Blu Ray version looked "too crisp." That's just nutty talk.

    But damn that T2 box is handsome.

    It's pretty simple to me. All the 90s Disney stuff was composited using Disney's CAPS system. For the dvd/bluray they took the images right from CAPS instead of using the film master, and I don't prefer the hard edged digital look for those movies. The film transfer looks great on the LD and has a slightly softer glowing look that squares with how I remember those movies in the theater.

    Waaaaaay more fun to collect than DVDs too. Check this out. $10, tons of bonus materials, and a pack of concept art lithographs:
