    Blu-Ray boosts home entertainment. Are you buying Blu-Ray's or renting?

    I'm still doing both pretty actively. I try to see as many new releases as possible, probably 2-3 per week on average, but I'm only buying the ones I really like after getting from Netflix, catalog titles, and new releases that I know I'll like but can't see in theaters (2 kids under the age of 3).

    True Lies?

    I thought there was a rumor a few months back about Abyss and True Lies hitting around Titanic.

    Ah! I knew Blu Ray was snake oil!

    I wasn't blown away by Blu-Ray when I got my first player, other than noticing how "perfect" the image looked on the menu for the first movie I watched, but it was more a deal where, after a few months of watching Blus, I just couldn't stand to watch DVDs or broadcast HD movies anymore. For...

    When you register your Ultraviolet copy, they give you the DTV Emerald Knights movie for free.

    Blu-ray Review Green Lantern Blu-ray Review

    I liked the movie a lot more watching it at home than my original theatrical viewing. The video looks a little darker than it did in theaters, but maybe that's my memory playing tricks on me because some of the scenes that were in all of the TV spots are definitely darker here and I know that...

    Whatever Lucas can do we can do BETTER.

    I'm sure there's something I can do better than he did. Everyone has a special purpose.

    The Force is Strong on Blu-ray: Star Wars Saga Breaks Global Sales

    Much of this Star Wars Blu-Ray affair has reminded me of the classic South Park episode where the school is holding an election between a turd and a douche. You can either get this set or not have Star Wars on Blu-Ray. For me, that would mean not watching Star Wars anymore, which I like to do a...

    The Force is Strong on Blu-ray: Star Wars Saga Breaks Global Sales

    Do the numbers include each trilogy's stand-alone release? If not, what would that do to the numbers? Not that I saw that many of those moving, but I know some people picked those up. Let's hope this encourages the full restoration of the originals by showing how eager people still are to buy...

    Maybe that's why they switched to the darker color, since the mystery of who was beneath the mask was going to become the key to the mythology.

    Is it just me, or has the upgrade to HD suddenly made it so you can see David Prowse's eyes through the mask on some shots in Star Wars? That's probably something to fix for next time.

    I also just watched AOTC and I'd agree with all of this. I also spotted a new change to AOTC that I haven't seen reported elsewhere. During Anakin's nightmare, you can now hear what he is hearing.

    Star Wars The Complete Saga MEMBER REVIEW Thread

    I just finished watching The Phantom Menace. I'm not especially critical about these things, but I thought it was a pretty mixed bag in the video department. For the most part, the opening section of the movie looked really good to me, but it looked kind of like the first Gladiator Blu-Ray in...
