Should I get a regular or upscaling DVD player?

Our current DVD player still works, but it's pretty old, takes up way too much space and shows all our movies in square CRT TV-sized display, so I'd like to get a new one. Thing is I'm not sure whether I should get a regular DVD player or one of these 'upscaling' players I see people talking... show more Our current DVD player still works, but it's pretty old, takes up way too much space and shows all our movies in square CRT TV-sized display, so I'd like to get a new one.

Thing is I'm not sure whether I should get a regular DVD player or one of these 'upscaling' players I see people talking about these days.
I don't know what upscaling players have to offer in comparison to regular players. (I'm not all that fond of overly-modernised graphics like incredibly fluid motion/frame blending and such) so I don't know which I'd prefer.

Can anyone offer some advice for me? Thank you in advance
