Billy-

I've only had time to skim it (will do a full read tonight).  Very interesting.  Thanks for sharing.

All that rah-rah marketing slobber is just silly, but there's some neat historical information in there (sales trends, appearance of new features, etc.).

Thanks for the post Billy.


There's some interesting information in there. But reads a bit too much like a marketing brochure.

In our age cynicism most people will dismiss it because of how it's written.

the top 100 is interesting, as are the stats about oldest movies on bluray and silent movies on bluray.


It would be neat to see bluray sales charted by era top 100 from 2000-2011, top 100 from 1990-1999, top 100 from 1970-1989, top 100 from dawn-1969


what the heck does 'index' mean?  does an index of 75 for Dark Knight mean it has sold 75% of the number of copies that Avatar has sold?
