Anyone bought a particular film on VHS, then Laser Disc,then DVD and now Blu Ray.

I`ve done 3 excluding Laser myself on odd titles.

Best Mark.

Just realised odd ones I`ve then bought the Blu Ray Steelbook too so done 4 sort of thing.

I also had a few CEDs for a while, not great.

Is there a list somewhere of essential laserdisc titles? Stuff that is is only available on laserdisc, or where laserdisc is the best quality home video format. I've had a player for a number of years now, but I've only got a handful of titles. I'd like to add some more titles to my collection, though I'm not really interested in editions that are redundant due to being available in superior DVD or blu-ray editions. I'm also not much of a stickler for audio, so strength in this area probably wouldn't be a huge motivator for me.

To answer the second part of the original thread, no, I have never projected a laserdisc. Though I did once see Neil Young's Solo Trans projected from a laserdisc on a monster screen in a theater. The format's limitations definitely showed, but it was still very enjoyable in a media archaeological sort of way.
