There is some overlap of members. But we are a bit more laidback here.

I think we care about slipcovers less over here.

Dabbled with both sites for years, definitely more relaxed here.

The MCU fans are less militant here than over there.

I call that a direct result of the mods stances and some of the posters.

I don't think there's as much constant trashing the MCU here.

I would assume that anyone posting on a forum is a fanboi of something. That to me is fine. The issue is when people go out of their way to trash things they do not like. Or actually type out a manifesto on why certain things should not exist. Which is against the forums stated rules.

I think slipcovers make the cases look better on the shelf, but I'm not going to lose sleep over not having one.

As a newbie, I probably don't have a right to weigh in, but I say welcome anyway! These forums host the nicest 27 people you'll ever meet online, and 1 jerk.

Re: Blu-ray.com Refugees

A manifesto typed out on an online forum (or painted on the side of a minivan) is a cry for help, really.

I know, I've typed one or more out myself.

Help!

I probably spend more time on BD.com than here, but Iíve never registered there. The community here is much better, but not all info gets cross posted. Sadly, part of the reason I spend more time there is just reading through all the mindless drivel to get the information I want.

Yeah, I've visited BD.com over the years for info, but the community over there never seemed as good as here, so I never bothered signing up. But this place is the tits!

Re: Blu-ray.com Refugees

Blu-Ray North America is the only section I go to. Just interested in info on what's being released.
The demo seems to run pretty young. Very little awareness of older movies. People who've never seen Hammer movies.
"Vertigo? Never heard of it. Day one blind buy for me just based on the cover!"
