It seems that some people enjoy watching movies on a phone or portable device, while others – especially home theater purists – refuse to watch movies on such a small screen. Where do you stand on this issue?
I have a subway commute every day, and I enjoy using that time to watch movies on my Android phone. I find this a very good way to make use of my DVD collection that I no longer find acceptable to watch on my projector. The low-res DVD image just looks terrible blown up to a large home theater screen, but it looks perfectly fine when ripped to my computer and then transferred to my phone.
I try not to make this my first viewing of any movie, and I probably wouldn’t watch movies that I consider important on the tiny screen. But disposable movies that I don’t care too much about make a great timewaster on the subway.
What about you? Do you have strong feelings one way or the other?
