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

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.

Re: What was your 1st Blu-ray?

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.

No Country For Old Men.

No player at the time, but I had a disc.

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.

Re: What was your 1st Blu-ray?

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)
