I have become a High Definition Television (HDTV) junkie. Now that I have seen HDTV on a regular basis I don't like to watch anything else.

Although I have a collection of over 200 DVD's, I have been anxious to get into Blu-ray or HD DVD but reluctant to make the commitment because of the dual format situation. Now that seems to have been settled and Blu-ray is declared the winner.

Why is it, however, that the choice of movies on Blu-ray makes no sense at all? I recently browsed the more than 600 titles available on Amazon and found very few that I want to buy. They have very few classics and few really good movies. The new releases make sense but the choice of older movies includes mostly drek.
