These 6 titles are pretty much candidates for the eventual double-dip on BD. Proceed with caution...

Is BD a common term for BluRay?

Actually, yes, Chris.

I should have been more sensitive to the use of shorthand in the thread title...but while many people use BR, I read here on the HTF early-on that BD was the accepted industry abbreviation and I conditioned myself to use it.

Meaning, I suppose, that the picture quality isn't all that it could be? Or something else?

That and/or missing extra features, etc. in some cases. For instance, the T2 release is barebones kinda like the original DVD version on top of being subpar in PQ.

When in doubt, just go read reviews of the BD titles in question, there are plenty of online sources for reviews. That's one of the things I do when I see a "deal" on HDM, and that usually saves me from the impulse purchase for a good many titles.

I would be highly surprised if T2 was NOT double dipped. I think it had, what, half a dozen iterations on DVD between the theatrical and director's cuts? This BD isn't even the director's cut so I fully expect that version in short order.

I own Stargate (twice, I got the corrected version with proper subs for the alien languages) and am underwhelmed by the PQ.

Exactly what I did when I checked out this sale. While I almost pulled the trigger on T2 at that price, I sought out a couple of on-line reviews which made it clear that an upgrade is expected down the road with better features, PQ & SQ. One reviewer also made a point that T2 is Artisan's cash cow...so they are going to keep coming up with creative ways to encourage double-dips.

There's already a deluxe HD DVD due at the end of January in Germany, under the banner of "Dynamic HD." It boasts a lot of interactivity. I don't know if the whole Warner thing will affect its release or not.

I was tempted to pick up T2, but Im sure we'll see another version with the Dir Cut somewhere down the line.

Aye. Interestingly, Artisan even uses the same cover for this T2 release as the first DVD release way back when. Seems like a dead giveaway for those of us who still remember (or still have that version lying around). ;D

Aye. Anyone interested in Close Encounters might want to get it now. That one just dropped from ~$33 down to ~$24 today.

Spider-Man - Trilogy for only $43.49 (or if you still have the 10% discount $39.14) is the best deal I've seen so far on this set.
DVD & Blu-ray - It's all about the movies!
