Brought my Beo Blu-ray home and

Recommended Posts

While at Walmart today I came across Beowulf and Grendel on BR for $10! I don't have a blu ray player yet but I'd love one in the future. How many GB movies do you have on bluray?

I'm not home right now, but I know I got all that I could. I'll guess:

PSILY, ROF, Dracula 2000, 300, TUT, TBH, RNR, LAC, Gamer, TOTBF, Nim's Island, BOAW, POTO, B&G, Cradle of Life

I had to get Cradle of Life in a different language, but I just change it to English in the Blu-Ray.

I think that's everything. If there are any other available, I'm not aware of it.

I have basically all the ones that Brenda listed except for Cradle of Life. Also, I have Tails of the Black Freighter on regular disk, but bought the Blu-ray special edition of Watchman which has TOTBF cut in where it was in the graphic novel. Hopefully, they will come out with Cradle of Life in English one of these days!

Oh, I just noticed I don't have Shattered (BOAW) in Blu-Ray. I have it on regular disk but hated it so much I never bought the BR edition!

I got it from Amazon and it was under the BOAW name, not Shattered. I think I bought it last year some time.

For the most part, I don't think there's a huge difference in the BluRay when they re-release after the fact. If they are part of the original release, I think you notice a bigger difference. I think the biggest difference is in Gamer, but they used a different type of film, so that's probably why it's so clear.....especially his eyes. You can also see every speck of dirt. It's really pretty cool looking.

Sometimes things might have been visible if you go back and look at the original, but weren't quite as noticable. What I always notice in PSILY is in that bed scene, where he's spooning behind her, you know he's been "so around". Anyway, I always notice his vaccination scar now. :lol: I never did before.

I only have Gamer, Law Abiding Citizen and The Bounty Hunter on blu ray. I haven't had a blu ray player for very long and although I have all of Gerry's available movies, most are on DVD. I can't afford to replace them until they wear out! ;)

Regarding the vaccination, I think Ren is saying that the detail is so sharp on the blu ray that Gerry's childhood smallpox vaccination scar is visible on his bare arm. :)

Awesome!! Thanks Elissa and Ren!

I'd love to have PSILY on bluray as it's what brought me to Gerry! It's like $15 at Walmart!

:hugs:

Ooh, $15 at Walmart? I should go for it. I never noticed the scar. I'll have to look for that next time! I do love the little Gerry details!

I got a bluray JUST BECAUSE of Law Abiding Citizen! I wanted to see that director's cut so bad! Of course, I got the cheapest one available, so it's slow and doesn't have any bells and whistles. I LOVE my regular DVD player (it's a 5 disc with very good quality for not being full HD), and I also can't afford to switch over my collection, so I just have LAC and TBH on Bluray.

I have a massive dvd collection so there is no way I would switch everything over but there are a few I would like....PSILY, LAC, Beo, POTO(It's really cheap on Amazon right now ;) I found a Sony bluray player at Walmart but I definitely need a job first or ask for it for Christmas :)

:hugs:

Yeah, not enough money, and no desire to switch it all over. The quality is not THAT much better that I would pay to replace over 400 movies. BAH. But, I wouldn't mind having a few more of my GERRY collection on BluRay. That, I do have a desire for. But, I'm doing it slowly... starting with just buying the new ones on Bluray. And if I see one for a good price...

April, I noticed you opened another thread about your Blu-Ray purchase. I merged the two threads so no one could get confused.

Hugs.

Bummer that it was the last one!

Ooh, 2-disc Gamer, huh? I really should go pick it up... I drove by a Walmart today when I got turned around doing errands, and thought about dashing in to see their selection. But, I decided not to tarry so I could get home to my puppy faster. I'll get them eventually.
