Re: To those that have cut back on collecting DVD/Blu-ray, what's the reason?

I've cut way back because I rarely have time to watch what I have and because there are so few movies being released these days that I have any interest in watching more than once. There are still...

Re: Help reading blu labels

Wow! So much for asking for help and expecting to receive anything but insults. I'm new to blu-ray, but I'm no troll.

I understand that these bars are common and that they have to do with how the...

Help reading blu labels

I have no interest in buying any more DVDs or blu-rays that insist on putting those damn black bars at the top and bottom of my screen. Is there any way I can tell from the label before buying that...

Re: Just watched my first blu-ray movie-not impressed

My new PS3 finally arrived, and I watched my first blu-ray last night, Casino Royale. I have a 53" Toshiba rear projection TV that maxes out at 1080i. Since my receiver is pre-HDMI, I had the video...

Re: Finally going blu: PS3 on the way

I didn't especially care for Iron Man, and I'm not big on cartoons. I ended up with Hot Fuzz (one of my personal favorites) and Casino Royale, so hopefully they will be decent on blu.

Re: Finally going blu: PS3 on the way

Yep, that is exactly what I ordered along with the PS3.

Finally going blu: PS3 on the way

I decided it was high time to take the blu-ray plunge so I ordered a PS3 and one of those gadgets that is supposed to let it work with my Harmony remote. Now I'll just have to decide on the first...

Re: Finally going blu: Will this work?

Thanks. I spent some time reading receiver reviews yesterday. The Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K AV sounds pretty tough to beat at the mid-range level.

You are right. I was thrown because they are labeled "antenna terminals."

Re: Finally going blu: Will this work?

I finally found the manual for my receiver, and it looks like it doesn't even have the analog 7.1 inputs I would need. I guess I am going to have to buy a new receiver regardless.

Finally going blu: Will this work?

At long last, I am ready to pick up my first blu-ray player. Since I think it would be cool to also have a current game console, I'm thinking that a PS3 would make sense. However, I realize that this...

Re: Drag Me to Hell - 10/13/09

For those planning to blind buy this one, I advise caution. I rented it after much anticipation and thought it was quite lame. Neither scary nor funny (aside from one scene). I'm really glad I didn't...

Re: Should I worry about Blu-Ray Phasing out?

My prediction is that Blu-Ray will phase out because the step up from SD to Blu just isn't enough to justify the added cost for most consumers.

Personally, if it was as simple as buying a Blu-Ray...

Basic audio question

I do not have an HDMI receiver and would rather not incur the cost of getting one as long as my current receiver works. What does this mean in terms of getting a Blu-ray player? Will I be able to get...

If you are someone who likes to collect DVDs, be sure to consider that Blu-ray versions are still much more expensive than SD versions. If it wasn't for that, I'd buy a Blu-ray player today. Until...

I'm skeptical that more time is the answer. I think the added cost of Blu-ray media is the main obstacle.

Several of the prices don't look particularly great. I swear I've seen many of those titles for half what DD is selling them for elsewhere.

I think the sale is supposed to go through this weekend, but it isn't happening everywhere. That is, not all Wal-Marts are participating.

I just returned from the local Wal-Mart and found no Halloween bins. The one bin I did find (2 for $10) had almost no horror. I picked up a few non-horror movies but was disappointed not to find any...
