It’s funny but I went close to 15 years without using physical media, yet find myself going back to it now.
Main reason is how fragmented streaming services have become. Content is so spread out I’m tired of having to search to figure out which one has it, resubscribe for one movie, etc. Plus 4K streaming isn’t as widely available/consistent on Shaw internet as I’d like.
Piracy always remains an option but streaming-wise tends to be way lower than 4K quality and it’s been ages since I last messed around with Torrents/etc. I’m sure there’s a way for anyone so inclined though.
Plus there is something enjoyable about waiting for deals and scooping up some of my favourite films for $10-$15 apiece. Snagged the 4K remaster of Casino for $15 last week.
