godfather collection on sale for $17. regularly is around 60 bucks

If your into cool packaging the Godfather 40th anniversary is still on for like 28 pounds which can be had for under 50 I'm pretty sure. Pound is crazy high now tho. Comes in a massive bible and has tons of cool shit, picture doesn't do it justice.

I use to be the same way. While some downloads look really good you can still tell the difference popping in a Blu-Ray compared to downloading than streaming it. Esp with the HDrips and some Blu-Ray downloads, great quality and I use them still. Even DVD's that get upconverted look really good. Older titles or less popular titles that don't have tons of great rips. Assuming your talking about downloading. I buy alot of Blu-Ray's and still download aton of things too. To me watching the Blu-Ray looks the best.

I like collecting things as well. Love the packaging and all the cool editions. Special features etc. Love owning physical copies instead of digital. Just picking out a movie and popping it in is really simple.I'm up to like 163 Blu-Ray's now and pretty addicted don't even want to know how much I've sunk into it.

Go on Ebay and search Iron Man future shop exclusive steelbook. People sell it for 300+ dollars. 2 have sold since Christmas for 400+ and one sold in November for 600.

Even though Blu-Rays are far superior to downloads/streams (not only for quality, but simply for the experience), I find the sound difference between Blu-Ray and downloads more apparent than picture quality. There are lots of very good quality streams, but I always notice a difference in the sound.

Forgot about that completely. YIFY has really good bluray rips compared to file size but I always find his audio to be somewhat off, have to jack up the sound to hear it. Watching a Blu-Ray, sound is just as good as the picture.

I use to argue in favor of downloads and that you couldn't notice the picture, esp when I first started downloading Blu-Ray rips. Now that I've actually seen a bunch of Blu-Rays on my TV it really isn't all that close for me personally. I'll download random stuff but generally if I really like a movie I'll want to see it on Blu-Ray esp if it looks really nice.

Yeah the audio is always so much better on a blu-ray, along with the picture quality obviously. Collecting blu-rays definitely is an addiction for me too, I'm up to 348 currently.. and want so many more.

Captain Phillips 1080p, then i put in on my 20gb usb stick and put it in my 50 inch samsung tv.

Yeah it will be better. That is just going to be a compressed rip of the movie, while its still going to be really good quality considering its 13gb its not true bluray quality.

I still download movies... but its generally just for movies I haven't seen yet or can't get on bluray yet.

Blu-Ray releases I'm looking forward to from Twilight Time:

Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (Sam Peckinpah)
Crimes and Misdemeanors (Woody Allen)
Broadway Danny Rose (Woody Allen)
Wild at Heart (David Lynch)


I was really hoping The Criterion Collection could have released all of those, but Twilight Time has some solid releases in their library so we'll see how they do.

These are the big items I've bought in the past few months. Aside from these, I've hardly bought any BRs - I need to get back into it.
