Default Does anyone other than me use iTunes to rent movies?

Personally, I'd highly recommend it for the following reasons:

(1.) It's fairly cheap ($2.99 to rent most movies), which is good for me because I don't have the money to buy DVDs regularly (or maintain a regular membership with Netflix).

(2.) The video quality is quite high-resolution, meaning that it's more likely you'll be able to properly ID the guns. It's not quite Blu Ray quality, but still pretty high res. Most of my screencaps are around 1440x600 (for movies), whereas DVD resolution is about 850x360.

(3.) You don't have to worry about matching your media player to the aspect ratio of the DVD, or anything like that (which is how we often see screencaps that look distorted/stretched).

I think I'm going to continue to do my pages this way. I've already done "2 Fast 2 Furious", "Air Force One", "Deep Rising", "Hard Target", "Jericho", and "Patriot Games" with iTunes, and I plan to continue using it.
