First off your gonna have to convince the public at large that switching over to proprietary blu ray is better than dvd.
Sure blue ray is better but not by much.
It is like beta or vhs, some folks still liked beta better.
Or dvd vs vhs, dvd was leaps and bounds better than vhs, so that was a no brainer.
In my opinion the difference between the two is ehh.
And the extra 10 or 15 bucks just isn't worth it.
I'll keep my old dvd for now until the next "new" technology coomes out.
Probably just digital download.
Yeah I'm not a big fan of HD movies either. I'm not saying it's not better, but after 5 minutes in a good movie you can't really tell the difference
unless you specifically think about it. Anyway!
Really good selection, very mainstream although. I would have made a couple suggestions but one I could make, is the movie Equilibrium. It's not B
side or anything but its not speilberg and such.
It's a movie where people in the future take pills to not feel any emotion and the law obligates you to and everything that has to do with art is
punishable by death. Then one man, decides to stop to take the pills and reads books in secret...
It's got great action too, a must see!
edit on 4-6-2011 by User8911 because: (no reason given)
blu-ray got the capability to have 5 times better picture quility then the old dvd format...
cant see a difference ? then I sugest you to get glasses.. the first time I saw a movie in 1080p.. I had a eyegasm
well anyway, this rant is alittle off topic.. it was suposed to be about some cool blu-ray movies.. blu-ray simple because its better image quility
and sound quility
Nice wishlist ... especially Star Wars. Think that's coming out in September on our side of the pond.
When the high-def format war was on the go, I chose HD-DVD and not Blu Ray. Both the players & titles were less expensive than their Blu Ray
equivalents, plus my Bro had an HD-DVD player for his Xbox. Sadly HD-DVD lost that particular format war (why ?)
But I've managed to acquire nearly 600 HD-DVD titles, often for as little as £2-£3. Combine that with over 1,200 dvd titles and I think I've got
more than enough to keep me going.That being said, I've taken the plunge with Blu Ray ... but there's no difference at all with HD-DVD that I can
see, plus the titles are still really expensive.
Sad thing is most are only watched once & put back in the cupboard, never to see the light of day again. Such a waste of money I suppose but if you
shop around carefully you can often buy the title as cheap as renting from Blockbuster
Ooohhh I like your list! Great picks! Might I suggest the movie Akira? It's cool if your not into Anime, but beleive me I am not that big on it
either. But never the less, if you enjoy great sci-fi, almost (hehe) plausible storylines about secret government projects, and mind-blowing animation
that puts todays standards to shame then by all means get it!
