I mean, you have movies like Avatar being reintroduced into the market with a directors cut edition. When Avatar first came out I bought it for $24.99 and the new directors cut version costs $24.99.


Personally I do enjoy the extras...they have good stuff in there and you're no worse off watching that than watching SportsCenter.

I am tempted to buy the new collectors edition Avatar just for the commentary. I feel to hear what the director was thinking or trying to portray in a certain scene.

More and more companies are doing this, especially Disney, but I think now with companies delving more into their catalog of titles for conversion, you will see more blu-ray/dvd combos.

Man that picture sums it up amazingly well for me. For me the time between when I put the dvd in and wait for the menu to show up is the time to go handle business, aka get food ready, get everything nice and comfy, and make sure I'm good to go. That way I can skip past the annoying trailers/whatever and by the time I'm ready to go, the dvd is at the menu. Then just skip past everything until the start of the movie and problem solved.

Same thing with TV shows. All these studio execs wondering why people pirate TV shows. When you charge upwards of $40 and $50 for a single season the reasons pretty much write themselves and this is coming from someone who owns every season of Friends along with all but one season of Everybody Loves Raymond.

They keep on giving people excuses to not buy legitimate copies and then wonder why the bottom line isn't producing the numbers they want. For God's sakes man, previews are cool in the actual theater because not only do they act as a buffer that allows you to get to the movie a little late but you get to see previews of movies you've never heard of before. Previews at home on the other hand usually include movies that are about to come to DVD.

Well to be fair if you have internet connected Blu Ray player they send you the most updated previews.

Re: F...Blu Ray

this might be an fu bluray thread,but i didnt want to start a whole new thread.For anyone interested in buying a bluray player,I suggest a samsung bd-c6500 I just got at bestbuy on sale for 139.99.Ive been researching them a little,Ive bought 3 this week and tried them out and this one is by far the best,especially for the price.I havent even tried to play a bluray disc in it yet,so I cant attest to that,its the other features it has that are cool as shit.Its wifi,and it lets you stream any movie service,while others might only let you do vudu or blockbuster or whatever,this one does it all.It does pandora,facebook,and a few other things,plus you can buy apps from samsung to put on it like an iphone.But to me the coolest thing it does is it will let you stream movies from your home computer if you have some on it.You have to download a program from samsungs website that lets you do it,then your good to go.

Re: F...Blu Ray

Don't buy Samsung blu-ray players, they are a flimsy and unreliable. If you're getting a blu-ray I would suggest you either get yourself a PS3 or this bad-ass Panasonic player.

thanks for the advice,but Im going to stick with the samsung.The main reason being I can access my computer files thru it to play on it.Do you own the panasonic one you recommended? Will it let you access files on your computer?

so does the PS3 do everything you "need" or want a blu-ray player to do? If you don't have a HD TV, is blu-ray worth anything?

PS3 does everything you need for blu-ray and then some. Without a doubt it is the best blu-ray player on the market. Of course if you just want a blu-ray player and have no use for it as a gaming device the price is a little too high.
