First of all, I've never even touched a laserdisk before today, so bear with me. I wanted to know what people see as some of the advantages that laserdisk has over dvd. I Know that sometimes you can find things on laserdisk that will never be on dvd at least supplements wise...(like the Criterion disks) I'm going to buy a player, and I was wondering what to look for. I know I want to get one that plays both sides of the disk, because I hate to get up and flip disks when I'm involved in a movie. Aside from that??? Also, where do you get ahold of Japanese disks? I'd love to get my hands on the Japanese disk for Eraserhead, and Twin Peaks Fire walk with me, and a few other movies that I know about that have extra footage and things like that. Finally, does anyone know if the laserdisk of David Cronenberg's Videodrome has anything that the dvd doesn't? Thanks!
