Upgrading to Blu-Ray
 
What do you do with the DVDs? I am trying to keep both disks, and have to decide on which packaging to keep. Lots of my DVDs have excellent packaging so I put the Blu-Ray in the main slot and slip the dvd into the side where there is no holder. If there is a product page, then that helps protect the surface, and I can add some paper to protect if not.

What about the Blu-Rays that come with DVDs. Give them to the library, to family, friends, or toss them? Selling them seems to much effort, as used DVDs sell (or don't sell) at a $1 each. I know I have bought a lot of them at that price, movies that I might only watch once a decade if even that.

I still keep my older DVDs of movies because of certain bonus features that the blu rays just dont have.

also the only time i really get into and buy a blu ray that i want is when there's a fancy special collectors anniversay blu ray for old 1980s horror movies from Poltergeist II to whatever.

as for new movies today, i can find a 2 disc DVD of It Chapter 2 at a grocery store where I cant even find the 2 disc DVD at frikkin Walmart or Target and I have looked.

Plus i prefer buying tv shows for DVD instead of blu ray. I have my reasons

I can't believe that I regularly find Blu-Ray movies that come with DVDs, that is less expensive then the DVDs by themselves. Lots and lots of DVD users out there, and I guess they keep the market alive, unknowingly paying more for less.

The 4K is bundling Blu-Rays, but the price is still high for the 4k, but interesting how the industry prices things. I do really like streaming, but only as a subscriber, not a buyer of streaming movies. Perhaps one day it will all be streaming, but as of now the shows and movies are all with different providers.

speaking of those 4K releases of certain movies, just like the special anniversary stuff from Shout/Scream i'd only buy a 4K blu ray release if they have actual brand new bonus features for the regular blu ray or a combination of older blu ray bonus features.

For example, the 4K blu ray of John Carpenter's Halloween, the regular blu ray has good bonus features including a trivia track
