Yeah I've seen it for 30 occasionally on like buy, and other sites.


I'm in the 20s now, unless you count parts of trilogies as individual in that case it goes to 30-ish. The only trilogies I count are the star wars ones as individual disks.

Also if the Bond collection wasn't formatted in whatever format the UK uses, I'd be on that shit so fast. It's way cheaper there, as opposed to stateside here.

Yeah the only trilogy I own so far is LOTR and its not a box set so I count them individually.

And Godfather is $34 CAD right now on Amazon.ca

Even though your dollar is barely stronger than the American right now...I can save 70 on the bond collection if I get it from .ca

And like 3 bucks if I get the godfather there.

Haha yeah every once in a while we get some deals that make it worth ordering. I've yet to find anything cheap enough on .com that I want bad enough to order though.

And the Bond Collection looks sick but theres no way I'm dropping that much money lol.

Yeah. I got it last week for 31. I'm kind of disappointed. Because that six bucks difference would be a dinner at mcdonald's but oh well.

Pirates of the Caribbean 1, 2 and 3
The Conspirator
True Grit (Jeff Bridges version)
Apocalypse Now

Star Trek

Pixar movies are outstanding and owning The Lion King actually got me laid. Don't judge.

I thought about buying the LOTR box set on blu-ray but instead I bought them separately because they were $8

Sound is AMAZING on both of them, which is great because the music in the movie is great. c wut i did thurr

The video is pretty good as well. The first one I think looks tremendous. I haven't been able to finish the second one so far, because I'm getting busy right before mid terms with class, papers, and the tub in my apartment broke so that's altered my schedule too. Rough stuff.

But I'd feel comfortable that saying Part II is going to be amazing overall.

If you love the Godfather it's a must own. In fact, I may actually watch Part III during spring break and give it a chance. I think I haven't watched it in about 3 years. And quite frankly Parts I and II get better as I get older.

Alright, I figured it would be amazing but I had to get some opinions before I spend 30 bucks on it.

Just picked up a couple of my personal favourites:

The Vengenace Trilogy (Symparthy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, Lady Vengeance). I loved Oldboy and Lady Vegeance while the first one was still solid overall.

Good review too: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Vengea.../14450/#Review


Also Three Days of the Condor. This, Marathon Man and The Silent Partner are a few of my favourite older thrillers that I could watch over and over again.

Only concert ones I've seen are the John Mayer where the light is one.

And The Who at Kilborn one.

Personally, I don't notice too much difference in the sound quality between dvd/blurays in regards to concert ones. I mean there obviously is one. BUT, because it's mastered very well, I don't think the difference warrants a blu ray purchase.
