Well, it happened. The new, sexy Star Wars set was finally enough to make me break down and pick up a cheap blue ray player. I've never seen the need for upgrading and the demos at best buy were never enough to convince me that I needed new gear. But everyone I ever talked to said "Oh, you need to see it at home! That's the only way that you get the True and Awesome Effect!" Fine - so I set about pulling out the old DVD player, setting up in the new one and throwing the disc in, I'm poised to be blown away by this awesome new format. Sock it to me, New Technology! . . . .um, it's not exactly knocking my socks off here. Seriously, it looks just about the same as DVD boxed set from 2004 (simple basic fuckups like the Trench Run music and the lightsabers from RotJ in front of the Emperor not withstanding). If there's a Sexy New Increase in the visuals, I'm not seeing it. Same thing with the Twilight Zone discs that I picked up at the same time as I got the Star Wars discs - they looked just about as good as the older sets that I borrowed from a friend a couple of years ago. Bottom line for me? Meh. No thanks, I'm sticking with the old format.
