Film rocks! It's colour rendition is still the best, the tones and textures still unbeatable. The problem for film lies in distribution. Film manufacturers made money on prints; negative processing for features would be literally free say 10-20 years back. Honestly, I still like watching films in theatres on print.
In digital screening there are often lot of problems - black level, heavy compression of files, etc. at least with film prints, though they were expensive but one thing was assured, in that much money you paid for the print your quality of images were assured and inbuilt.
All these talks of scratches and dirts are bullshit. In Mumbai, I always saw films in theatres with pristine print quality only in smaller towns the qaulity of print suffered. Now a days, it is just the other way round - People in small towns, pay less money and watch pristine prints because they cannot afford a hefty digital projection system 'upgrade' and people in big cities have to watch compressed digital projection. not every theatre is purely 2K or the digital files originating in highres
