This is an old topic that I hope has been answered that way you can all answer it for me. I was just sitting there, watching Chasing Amy's DVD commentary again (for probably the third time) and I just actually thought about it. Why didn't Kevin Smith like DVD?

The reason I just "thought about it" was because I actually saw a LaserDisc. I thought the difference between DVD and LaserDisc was the fact that it held less memory and the picture/sound was bad. But I couldn't believe it was the fact that they're the size of Vinyl Records (without the appeal that Vinyl Records have).

So after seeing what LaserDiscs were, I'm just wondering. Why in God's name would anyone say 'Fuck DVD!' to DVD.

Of course, Kevin Smith sticks close to the theory that someone, not him said it, probably Affleck or Mewes. But if you can answer this question for me, that'd be great.
