DVD a thing of the past?

Betamax and beyond

DVD a thing of the past?

Postby Dellamorte on Mon Aug 06, 2007 12:27 pm

Perhaps!

Check out this article in the New York Times about the new way to rent movies!:

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/06/business/media/0 6stream.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

It's all about streaming movies through your computer. Netflix is doing it and so is this company out of Seattle called ReelTime.com. They have a lot of niche movies and a good selection of horror as well as some documentaries and lots and lots of indies. Their rate is really cheap too. I'm thinking of signing up for a free trial. Apparently, you can also hook it up to your TV so you can still get comfy on the couch. What do you guys think?

Screw this, I like having the option to break my DVDs should I choose. If you stream them, I'll have to break the laptop when the films crash.

The concept of streaming movies to your computer isn't new.

Nor are threads about the different potential replacements for DVD.

There are people who don't know the internet is anything but AOHell or are frightened of the internets and want a hand to hold. I was with AOL for a short while many years back and they kept sending me their discs for another five or six years. Some of the packaging was pretty cool, except it had the logo.

I can't recall the name of the movie, but there is a funny scene where they make a collage of all the AOL discs - they have this hanging on their wall. Anyone remember what film that's from?

In the film, Maui, was the artist waiting for just the right AOL disc to finish the piece? There's a nagging memory but I can't get the title.

Throughout 2017, we will highlight one MUBI movie per month to help illustrate the catalog’s breadth and importance.


In other words, its for about 10 people.

All snark aside, its cool and all that this service is available I guess, but man, talk about a small market. I guess for 6 bucks a month it ain't bad if you're into films no one has ever seen.

Re: DVD extras a thing of the past?

BMD Extra, Extra: ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY
You've all seen the movie and will be buying this anyway, but are the extras worth your time?
BRIAN COLLINS wrote:As sales of physical discs (Blu-ray and DVD) decline, the idea of bonus features becomes less and less essential for new, mainstream films. There will always be a market for library titles with extensive retrospective commentaries and documentaries (see: Criterion, Scream Factory, etc), but for new films it's a dying trend. "Extra, Extra" is an attempt to encourage the studios not to give up on us disc champions, by mostly skipping over the film itself (which you can find reviews for anywhere) and focusing on the bonus features they were kind enough to include. Viva la physical media!

After a torturous wait of three months and change, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is finally on Blu-ray, so you can relive the nostalgic memories of fifteen weeks ago without shelling out theater ticket prices.
