(List) Your First Blu-ray Purchase(s)...
« on: April 21, 2008, 08:08:35 AM »
Not a replacement for the 'most recent dvd thread' ... just a simple question, what was your first Blu-ray? It could help others in deciding what purchase(s) they make for their new Blu-ray players.

So what was (/ will be) your first blu-ray?

For me it was
 
The Prestige - Absolutely love this movie. Hope everyone has a chance to see the film 'unspoiled'.


followed by
T2 - This is a Blu-ray 'no brainer' if there ever was one. One of the greatest action films ever made at a price under $20.

Well, got a PS3 on friday, and my first Blu-Ray purchase is:



Of course, I already owned the SD version this.  And I'm not one to re-buy movies, but for Die Hard, an exception must be made.

I plan on getting Juno soon, just waiting for the price to drop a little bit.

Knew from the very beginning which format would win my vote: the one that displayed my beloved PIXAR films in HIGH DEFINITION!!

And that became Blu Ray...

so I bought my first title:



unfortunately for me I still don't have a player just yet, but that will change in the next couple months. Thank you, Economic Stimulus Package!!

Oh, this will be an easy list for me. I don't own any.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

Does the T2 include the alternate cut?

Yeah, I'm protesting this expensive and unnessesary format change. No Blu Rays here.

That's a shame.

I don't have any BR discs yet, but Hellboy is currently at the top of my list of ones I want.
