    I have only seen one double sided dvd in my life and that was the starship troopers movie, very nice when in the middle it shows a dvd flipping over. Does not take you out of the movie at all

    I saw one way back, Eraser or Conspiracy Theory or something, one side was Fullscreen mode the other side was Widescreen Mode. Those were the days.

    The first Goodfellas DVD was double sided. Extremely annoying even back then (10 years ago).

    I'm glad BluRay has put an end to this madness, once and for all.

    Not really. There's plenty of space on a DVD for a whole film (unless it's really long like the LotR extended versions). I've never even come across a DVD that had a film (apart from really long ones) split over 2 sides/discs; dual layer discs have been around for years, so no need.

    Even the aforementioned LotR films still get split over two discs on BD.

    Dang, I had hoped LotR didn't need to be split on BD.

    The films are nearly fours long, so there wasn't much choice if one wants a decent bit rate.
