Bought Hangover 2 and Hanna on BRD last night.

Hangover 2 avtually has some nice scenery at times. And no I dont count a ladyboy pen!s as nice scenery.

Alien in 1080p is nothing short of stunning magnificence. I can't wait to watch the rest of them. I'll even go back and watch the directors cuts.

Ridley Scott really knew what the f*ck to do with the science fiction genre back in the day.

JAWS finally gets a release date: August 14, 2012.

Also, watched all four Aliens and I prefer the first over the second.

what I cant notice is the difference between 720 and 1080 I have a small 720hd ready 22 inch tv and my friend has a 42 inch plasma 1080p TV and it looks the same to me except his is big as ofcourse so it great to watch on, quality wise I dont see a difference, I want to get a bigger TV since LED's are getting cheaper so ill probably get a 32inch in the future, but right now BD are expensive in my country and DVD's are a dime a dozen( pirated) less then $1 each I can also download and usually only watch movies in my Galaxy Tab

It also depends on the PQ. If you're watching a shitty transfer, it doesn't matter what TV you use.

I wanted to find this thread after Christmas. I added some new titles on BR from the holiday.

I got some as gifts and bought some with holiday currency, ya dig?

New BR's include:

Aliens (looks glorious and love the cover Art)
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Lion King 3D Diamond Edition
Metropolis (one of the most important works of art EVER,re-cut)
Super 8 (awesome special features)
Lost In Translation
The Fountain (looks magnificent)
500 Days of Summer (wanted this on BR for the art direction)

All in all, it was a nice little haul

I have about 30 Blu-Rays now and about 275 DVDs. I finally got my Special Edition of True Romance with the cover art I always coveted. Not a Blu Ray though

I have Apocalypse Now on BR. It really sucked me in further with the visceral imagery with its improved clarity/resolution.


Although, I don't have the ultimate serious version that you ordered! I'm jelly ni99a

Which one? And not to be nit-picky, It's Blu-Ray Disc, Blu-Ray is considered one word so it would be "BD".

I ordered this one today

Those are great movies to have on BD (word to Pete's)

However, for having the worst summer Blockbuster this decade (TF2) in the best format for home viewing. I hope it was a gift
