Out with the old!

I've always loved to watch movies ever since I was a little kid so when they started come out on video tape I jumped at the chance to watch them, surrounded by my teddies and dolls because it's a way of getting into that child-like frame of mind where I feel happy and  carefree, safe sipping a glass of milk. 
That's why as technology changes I just had to act starting first on my favourite cartoons such as the Pink Panther and various Disney titles since first starting to buy DVD's in 2002.
It was only those titles that went straight to first time DVD release, those cartoons plus a few classic TV and Music releases I bought leaving a legacy of titles I had to use my trusty S-VHS recorder for.
At long long last I have been replacing a good many of my VHS tapes of movies with DVD versions since updating my DVD player a short while back.

I replaced recently the following:
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
The Wiz
Flash Gordon
Staying Alive
Two Of A Kind
Streets Of Fire
Top Gun
Days Of Thunder

The improvement over the tapes is hard to describe but they are sharper with better colour rendition and contrast.
