I don't see the acquisition of DVDs as an "either/or" situation.

Much of classic literature was the cheap pulp fiction it's time.

Comparing the acquisition of mainstream Hollywood films to buying cheap
prints of great art is not a fair comparison.

Is "Citizen Kane" a "cheap hollywood DVD"? Or is it a masterpiece?
