Oh, I don't mind animation on DVD so much since the color resolution is so low to
begin with compared to live action. But live action movies... ugh. The compression
is so noticeable sometimes that lock off shots that don't have anything moving in
them sometimes turn into stills like from a slide projector. But animation survives
fine. I'm looking forward to shelling out the massive cash for that Macross box set
DVD thing. Did I just say that? My wallet just kicked me in the ass.
