No, Laserdiscs sucked, I can tell you from personal experience. They were huge, expensive, you had to flip them over in the middle of a movie and the quality was the same as a non-high def DVD. Almost anything looks better than standard definition VHS, even Beta Max. Besides, Blue Ray DVDs have far better quality and can store a lot more data. Nostalgia makes people do stupid things, like bringing back cassette tapes.
