This thread is to discuss releases on blu-ray...the good,the bad,the crappy transfers,collections etc.

Please keep the blu-ray vs. dvd posts to the other thread.
Blu-ray players and tech issues etc. can go in the home theater thread.

Here's a hidden gem some might not know about..

Posted Image

This is one of my current favs in my collection.
The original version from the 80's.
It was released by a small,indie company called Twilight Time.
They specialize in releasing lesser known movies or those that are not guaranteed to have a mass appeal as far as sales go.
What makes it kind of neat is they are limited edition releases of 3,000 copies.
Once it sells out that's it...gone.
Try ebay.

This release was,in fact,their first sellout.

I preordered a copy the day it went up.The demand was so great the site that handles the distribution and orders for them (Screen Archives) crashed.People were freaking out.I luckily got my order in before the crash.
You have to be willing to take a bit of a bullet price-wise but any blu-ray I've got from this company so far has been totally worth it.
The blu-ray treatment is outstanding,just superb.Super clear and natural grain intact.I have the dvd as well and this just buries it (but enough about that here).The soundtrack has been remastered as well.
It's pretty much a barebones release,no extras apart from a trailer and an isolated soundtrack option.
But they do include a magnet of the cover (the cover as seen above) which is a neat little perk...looks cool on the fridge. :tongue2:

Absolutely one of the gems of my collection at this stage...really happy with it. :)

I'd give it a 9/10...probably the best it's ever going to look.
1 point knocked off for the lack of extras (but that's part of the deal when they license the movie for release).

I use my PS3 for everything.

Just ran out to Walmart tonight and grabbed Star Trek (2009) for $5! Also got the Scream movies for $40 because I had a giftcard.

And Zint, damn you.. I beat myself up for not ordering Fright Night (it would have been a blind buy, but still..) I think I didn't because it was like $30 or something? Still though, had I been smarter a few months ago.. :(

As for my gems though, I love my Jurassic Park collection in the metal case. Also love my steelbooks, especially Underworld Awakening 3D! And my Alien Anthology ^_^

Do any of you import? I've got two on their way right now - Taken and The Hurt Locker - beautiful steelbooks. I'll post pictures later :)

No, I download all of the time. If I liked the movie enough though, I'll gladly buy it at the right price.

Pretty fair call. TV Shows too?

Yep. There are some shows though that I'm too far behind in buying the seasons (Dexter, True Blood) that I'm probably just going to wait a few years until the whole sets are released and buy them then.

And that reminds me, my Lost Collection is a prize of mine as well :D

As is my Willy Wonka box set :)

Buying movies is one thing, but TV shows are fucking expensive.

Yeah, but the way I look at it is it's like 10-12 hours, for $50? Not that bad, in my opinion.

Also, TV shows are always cheaper the week they come out, which is when I usually get them.

New release movies are usually between $20-23, and I hardly every get those. And this week, the latest season of True Blood is $35, so.. :shrugs:

Both are stupid, fuckin' region locked though, so I'm just going to swap out the discs for the regular US blus ( even though that version of the Hurt Locker has an exclusive commentary :/ )


Then, I'm going to get Paul:

And hopefully I'll be done for awhile :)

More than I should :lol:


Really though, these are the most expensive ones, and they aren't even that bad. The first two, after shipping, I'll get for around $35-40 (for the pair), which is really good considering they're coming from overseas. Paul is a little more expensive though, mainly because of it's availability.

As for the blus I just buy around here though, in the states, I don't usually spend more than $10-15 on one single movie, and I don't even do that too often. Occasionally I'll splurge on a new release f $20 or so, but that's only if I really want the movie.
