Is the original Tron any good? In terms of the actual movie, not how good the blu ray looks etc.

Sorry, haven't seen either.

I'm going to break in my Band of Brothers BD right now, ep one coming up.

Every time this thread gets bumped, it makes me want to go out and finally pick up my Blu-Ray player and like 50 titles.

This might be a silly question.... but do you have to be a real videophile to notice the difference between an actual Blu-Ray and a legit 1080p rip of a Blu-Ray source???

I recently bought Beauty and the Beast and Blade Runner on Blu-ray. I saw that they were both given perfect scores, and I have to say, they both look amazing.

Blade Runner has been enhanced. I watched the workprint and original release, and the blu-ray version looks 10 times better. The Tyrell pyrimad looks fuzzy and dull in the workprint, and crisp and clear in the blu-ray version. It makes it look like a 90's movie instead of 80's.

Anyway, too tired to post the my collection list.

I'm trying to buy the original Arthur that just came out. Can't find it anywhere.

No, 1080p is 1080p. At this point though, it's just easier to buy the blu-rays.

They take up a lot of space, and aren't cheap to copy.

No, there's no difference at all like RoseCity said. Go to page 2 and read the back and forth between me and RBA, I explain what you're missing from not buying the BD's.

Yo. I've recently been picking up a number of blu rays.Seeking a criteria of cheap/good deals ($5-$15), good movie (IMO), and good blu ray quality especially if the movie in question really deserves blu ray treatment.

This is my current collection:

-3:10 to Yuma
-30 Days of Night
-300
-Avatar
-The Devil's Rejects
-Lost in Translation
-Gran Torino
-Evil Dead 2
-Army of Darkness
-The Thing
-Terminator 2 / Total Recall two pack
-The Running Man
-Trainspotting
-Gangs of New York
-No Country for Old Men
-2001: A Space Odyssey
-Blade Runner: The Final Cut
-Troy: Director's Cut

So, anyone know of any good deals on blu-rays right now that would probably be up my alley? I wanted to get Inception/Black Swan, but $20-$30? F*ck you Hollywood.

Compare for yourself;

Encode:


A good encode can even be transparent at lower resolutions, like 576p. I love 576p.

Check out this bad-ass Spanish Apocalypse Now SteelBook!



Depending on the region, I might have to import this baby.

ha

They haven't released the region yet, it might be region b locked which means you can't play the movie on a normal Blu Ray player. Also, the price will be astronomical.

I'll update the thread when the information is released.

But seriously, that's a nice cover. ApocNow is usually very dark, the light colors is a nice change.

That looks fantastic, although you're right, it'll probably be expensive. I'm sure it'll be worth every penny though, anything Canal + (notice the small "studio canal" on the bottom right corner") is involved in means superb quality.
