How much of a transition have you made into hi-def Blu-ray?


For the time being, very slowly. As with Iceman, I only seem to gear towards Blu just for the added extras that standard DVD isn't allowed to carry. But things seem to have come to a stand-still at this moment. I guess the big deciding moment will come once Dark Knight Rises comes around. I know for sure that The Dark Knight will get released with, not only with possible voucher money, but with Oscar-winning remarks on the packaging (I know that Warner Bros, for years, has been DYING to re-issue the packaging to acknowledge this) but this means that Blu-Buyers might have to double-dip for the first time. OR they could just leave that up to standard-DVD the way they did with the limited box set of Batman Begins.

I honestly feel that this release will assure the fate of Blu and DVD.

The only thing that will get me to double dip on BB/TDK is DTS HD MA and audio commentaries. I wonder if WB will do what they're doing with the Potter franchise and release TDKR in December, let the inventory go OOP, and in 2013 do a six or seven disc box set of all three films plus additional footage, etc.

I think the most recent DVD was "Home Alone." It used to be a Christmas tradition that we'd watch that movie and "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" on Christmas Eve. I realized that I've owned a copy of "National Lampoon's" for years now; however, the only copy of "Home Alone" was an old VHS at my parent's house.

Prior to that Christmas time purchase, I bought a variety of old children's show DVD's to include:

He Man: Masters of the Universe (Seasons 1 & 2)
Teddy Ruxpin (The complete series)
Muppet Show (Season 1)

Friday The 13th Parts I-IV (Deluxe Editions) Ran into this at Wal-Mart for $13. This marks my 3rd-owned copy of Part IV (My favorite part anyway) but it's cool to finally check out the extras for the 1st two and the chance to see Part III in 3-D. Interesting to know that Paramount included the seperate discs for this set. I'm so used to double-sided discs for multiple films much like the way Warner Bros does for these type of sets.

Also got X-Men on sale for $10 with the Act of Valor credit.

I already own X2 so I'll have to pick-up X3 to complete the collection. Walmart has it for $15, Best Buy has it for $30 so I'll have them match Wal-mart.

I got some great deals on used Blu-rays off amazon recently.

Kick-Ass ($3)
The Dark Knight ($6)
Trick 'R Treat ($3)

And I also, got some cheap DVDs:

Daybreakers ($0.75)
Poltergeist ($0.75)

Amazon also lowered the price on the Planet of the Apes blu-ray box set a few weeks ago to $24! I had to pick that one up. Some great new featurettes and Conquest now has the original darker ending included.

So Amazon dot com has the Two-Disc Collectors Edition of The Social Network directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jesse Eisenberg and Spider-Man for 1.99. That seemed like a fair price to me so I bought it and maybe other people here might be interested in that movie for that price? I don't know.

I'm not sure where this should go but maybe this is the place yes?

Oh, and I bought some more DVDs. It is almost as if they know you will do that and plan accordingly!!!!

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
Cabin in the Woods
Dead Man
Zombieland
The Iron Giant
Robin & Marian

They were all like five or six or seven bucks (which seems a kind of okay to me) except for the last one which was more like eleven. That is trending dangerously close to paying full price for the DVD!!!

I just bought the Back to the Future trilogy on bluray and as I was watching it I realized something. The actors today are now the age that their characters were supposed to be back in the 1985 scenes.

Crispin Glover is 48, Lea Thompson is 51 and Thomas Wilson is 53. It's funny but if Robert Zemeckis was like George Lucas in that he wanted to continue "fixing" his films and everyone was actually up to it, they could go back and CGI themselves into the scenes of adults George and Lorraine McFly and Biff.

For that matter, in part II when they travel to 2015, Michael J Fox and Elizabeth Shue could now play their adult selves in those scenes. That would be a trip to see that.
