I know, I know, everyone hates Kevin Costner and particularly his lousy English accent. But I like the movie, and it has enough re-watchability for me that it's worth the upgrade to Blu-ray.

I sold off my DVD to get the BD eventually... i love the film. Alan Rickman was so great as the sheriff.


Picked up Falling Down today.

Re: The Last Blu-ray or HD-DVD you Bought (Round 2)

I got Terminator 2 Skynet Edition for $20 at Wal-Mart. It sucks about the DNR and ocasional EE but for $20 I can't complain much and it's not as bad as I feared, though still quite noticeable. Hopefully the next go around they'll get it right.

By the way, be careful of the THX Optimizer 2.0 that's included on the disc. I was shocked to see that the below black info was actually appearing on the black level test pattern (my PS3 doesn't output below black and my TV doesn't accept below black via HDMI) but realized that they just upped the brightness on the THX patterns so you actually end up setting your TV way too dark (16 notches too dark in my case).

I'd complain for $20, I wouldn't for $15 though, that's how much it's been at Best Buy all week

The Best Buy nearest me is far enough and in such a trraffic infested area that the trip would invalidate the $5 discount.

Ordered a few region-free titles from Amazon UK:

Black Narcissus - 9.98
Great Expectations - 9.98
Funny Games (2007) - 6.94

Too bad the pound continues to skyrocket - the conversion rate is up to 1.61, and climbing.

At Blockbuster I pick up Jumper and Iron Man used for $25 total (2 for $25 sale).

I have not bought a DVD for about 3 months, I only want Blu-Ray now, even if I have to wait a long time for the price to come down on the movie I want.
