A little advice on weeding your LDs. If supplements are important to
you, compare the LDs and DVDs carefully. A good example; the
Criterion CAV version of Taxi Driver has an audio commentary by
Martin Scorese. The DVD does not. If you are wondering about what to
do with weeded LDs, you could always give them to me. (joke!)
