Unless you own a PSP and have actually experienced UMDs, you've got no grounds to bitch about it. The movies are of superb quality, and for movie-watching on the go, I'd sooner take a PSP and a handful of UMDs over a portable DVD player. You may not have the same library of titles as you would on DVDs, but a surprising number of new releases (and some old releases, case in point: Ghostbusters) are being UMD-ized, and that's enough for me.
EDIT: Also, who the hell is pointing a gun to your head and forcing you to buy UMD movies instead of DVDs? Is there some fantastic scam that Sony is pulling that I am unaware of where they are bilking customers into purchasing a PSP and UMD movies who would not ordinarily purchase them? Did it occur to you that nothing else is going to support UMD movies because they were created specifically for the PSP? Are the UMD movies somehow harming the market by their very existence? The UMD movie feature adds $0 to the cost of a PSP's hardware, so it's certainly not costing you any more by being there if you don't watch movies on your PSP, for one thing. For another, there's little to no investment needed to convert a movie to a UMD and the costs to press optical media are minimal, so it's essentially instant profit for a company - are you honestly telling me that there's something wrong with a company wanting to make money off of something that harms nothing and nobody? You're not required to buy UMD movies if you have a PSP, the movies don't add anything to the cost of the PSP unit itself, it makes money for the company by filling a niche market, and it makes people happy who want to watch new-release (and some old-release) movies on the go without shelling out for a DVD player. Unless you can come up with solid grounds for disliking UMD movies and their association with the PSP, sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up.
