I have that same thought when I look at my VHS collection. Tom we never got your thoughts on The Dark Knight

Y'know, at this point, I think most everything that needs to be said about Dark Knight has been said. As far as my personal reaction, I thought it was great - an excelent morality play. You could have removed the Joker and Batman completely and still had a compelling film. The end is a little labored. There are really about three endings and it could have benefited from a little editing. But it would do so at the sake of sacrificing some of the more profound discussions about Dent - who is really more important to this film than *either* Batman or the Joker. Fun times all around!

I've ended up watching more VHS tapes lately- a lot of older DVDs end up rented out at the little independent rental place that I go to so I end up going to the back of the store for VHS- also people are giving away their collections all the time and it is far cheaper to buy VHS tapes than to get movies any other way. The durability and ability to skip the fbi warnings is nice too. Plus I don't care too much about picture quality soo... you can probably tell that I'm not an 'early adapter' of blue ray. I’ve seen high definition sets and the dollar amount I place on high definition is exactly zero. So yea, hooray for quaint outdated technology!

I still have two copies of Blade Runner on VHS (the original & the directors cut) and even though I got the special briefcase edition with 5 different cuts & the little unicorn & flying car, I STILL can't bring myself to get rid of them.
