I wanted to add a couple of my favorite films on my iPad for quick and easy access anytime I am in the mood. What I found many times on iTunes is that a somewhat newish movie will be available in HD for rental only, but you can purchase the movie in standard def. I have HD TV, and try to purchase nothing but Blu-Ray movies for my bigscreen, and I do see a big difference there. I'm wondering if there is really much difference noticeble on the iPad? BTW, for fans of The Godfather Trilogy (my favorite). The iTunes price for each of the three movies is $9.99, but I got the Trilogy for a recently reduced price of $17.99. That basically gets Godfather 3 for free, which is exactly how much I was willing to pay for it. Not even sure I can justify the disk space.
