I tried advanced search but it told me "first" was too common. :rolleyes:

But here's a previous thread. I found it by searching for Bridge to Terabithia, which was my first title because it was on a list of eligible titles free with the PS3. I like the movie but of course I've never watched the BD.

First Blu-ray/HD-DVD title purchased?

I dunno--it seemed more interesting than the other titles on the list at the time.

EDIT: Or if you mean how come I never watched it, I had already seen it (and probably owned it on DVD--remember these were the "build your collection" days), and for whatever reason I never had the urge to watch it again. Still haven't actually.

In that other thread, the first HD DVD I got was Serenity, and I've watched that movie umpteen times, including the BD I bought later.

Pretty sure it was Casino Royale. That was one of the few Bd specific titles I had any interest in at that point.

Circuit City also gave me two free discs with the player so I grabbed The Departed and Black Snake Moan, which is still unopened.
Will probably finally get around to seeing that again in the next couple months.

Casino Royale was my first as well.

50 First Dates, only because that was one of the very first titles released (I put up the product info for it on the tower.com website) and I wanted to have at least one of them- I got it cheap during Tower's going out of business sale. I wish I'd gotten the first Fifth Element disc just because I never saw what was so bad about it. 50 First Dates uses MPEG2 format video but looks great to me (it's not a great movie), it also has analog closed captions and wonderfully obnoxious menu sounds. I didn't have an HDTV til about 3 years later!

I think South Park Season 12 and Screwballs were the first Blu-Rays I actually bought because I wanted them- not the greatest choices I know.

I'm fairly positive that it was The Shining. That along with Tropic Thunder and Foo Fighters: Live at Wembley Stadium were some of the first I bought.

Edit: I replied to the old thread too and said the same titles so guess I still do remember.

Inception was my first Blu. I got it before I even had a Blu Ray player but I wanted it to be my first High Def experience.

Got my first Blu Rays after picking up a PS3 in early 2008

Not 100% sure but it might have been Blade Runner Complete Collector's Edition which I hemmed and hawed about ordering on Blu Ray or HD-DVD. That was one case where I chose correctly.

Also got very early on :
Underworld 1 & 2
Hellboy
Curse of the Golden Flower
Hairspray
Chicken Little*
Click*
The Corpse Bride*
Bridge To Terabithia*
The Last Waltz*
(*I think that these were from a promotional giveaway with purchase of a Blu Ray player as HD-DVD and Blu Ray fought each other to the death)
