I have the Samsung Blu Ray player. It's good. The add on adapter cost 70 to surf online, Youtube, Vudu HD Movies, etc. It's great.

I'm not sure if all of them do, but the best definitely do that.

There's really no reason not to buy one from that list I gave him, unless he's got a budget.

Since I've got the Samsung LED and the Samsung Sound Bar.... i guess it makes sense to go with the Samsung Blu Ray player seeing as how it is the top-rated, non-PS3, Blu Ray on that list.

Budget really isn't an issue.

I really hate when i see black bars on my TV screen.I thought having a 52 inch tv and a blu ray player would make the movie "fit" on my screen.

Watched kick ass 2 nights ago and it looked awsome except for the black bars.

I understand its because you get to see the whole picture instead of 80% percent of the picture.I just wish they could format it to where it would fit my entire screen without leaving out anything out.

I have possibly the WORST Blu-Ray collection ever

Spiderman 3 (came with the PS3)
Semi Pro (was $4.99 at Platos Closet)
The Wrestler (was $7 at a Movie Gallery going out of business sale)

So I've paid a total of $12 for 3 Blu-Rays

Default Re: Blu Ray thread!

So as some of you know, I recently upgraded the shit out of my TV, and will soon be purchasing a top-of-the-line Blu-Ray player. You also may know that I have a very extensive library of HD-quality digital film rips.

What films out there absolutely must be watched on Blu-Ray instead of via a 1080p Blu-Ray rip?? I'm thinking it has to be a combination of quality of the film, its rewatchability, and visual awesomity.

What are the best Blu-Ray titles to own based on the aforementioned criteria??
