Default Do you have blu ray?Whats your collection look like?

I got a blu ray player during black friday to see what all the hype was about.I whent out and bought Underworld 2 on blu ray to compare it to my regular dvd copy of it.i definetly tell the difference between the two, blu ray is much better.I whent to a store where they sell used movies/cds very cheap and i got some great deals bought all these movies on blu ray for less then 55 bucks.

The Fourth Kind
Underworld 2
Predator
Zombieland
2001 Space Odyssey

came out to about 11 bucks each rather then spending 30 bucks on one movie.Also planning on getting District 9 and Predators.

I put North by Northwest and Inception (still haven't seen it yet) on my wish list on Amazon so hopefully I'll be getting those for Christmas.

Yeah I've got about 200 BD's on my Amazon wish-list, and It's very hard choosing which one[s] to order. Some of my favorite movies aren't released on this format yet which kind of sucks. I'm ordering my favorites in a particular order and when I run into a snag it just halts the whole thing. I haven't ordered another one since the summer because Taxi Driver and Jaws are still not released.

The only blu-rays I have so far (since I got my PS3) are:

The Dark Knight
Sin City
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

The rest of my collection is DVD.

I really wanted to get this but I read some bad reviews on the overall Blu Ray including quality and extras. IIRC, it was kind of hard to find, too. Several different versions and whatnot.

It was on sale for $9.99 and the only copy I had was a full-screen DVD of it which I got as a gift. I don't even know if there are any extras but I needed a better version in my collection.

I have quite a few Bluray rips like some others have mentioned.


Basically anything that's 1024x576, 1280x544, 1024x428, etc. is a Bluray rip. I have lots of 576p Bluray rips because I think it's a great balance in quality and filesize, and if ripped by a knowledgeable encoder they're just as transparent as higher resolutions.

2001, Wall-E, Der Untergang, Crouching Tiger, Truman Show, Shawshank, etc. etc.
