    I keep seeing the laserdisc double pack of the two Phibes films on ebay. How do these laserdisc versions compare to the MGM DVD's? Paff, I'm looking in your general direction.

    I prefer the laserdisc double feature (the widescreen ones, not the earlier versions) - the sound is so much better. I have to keep turning the sound up on the DVD's just to hear the quiet dialogue and then a music cue happens which is just too jarring.
    The picture on the LDs are very clean and free from speckles, even!
    I watch both DVD and LD versions, but the LDs have gotten more play from me.
    The color on DVD is much stronger, however.

    Jeez, what a toss up! Better color with the DVD, but better sound with the LD (but isn't that usually the case!?!) I'll have to wait till after Xmas to make up my mind (the 2 Phibes films are on my DVD wishlist). If I don't get the DVD's as presents, I'll buy the LD on ebay & save a little dough.
