Apparently I can’t properly insert image galleries anymore. I have no idea why not but it’s not working the way it should. I was going to post photos of cats but I guess I won’t.
I purchased a Blu-Ray player yesterday. About a month ago I had seen Sin City for sale on Blu-Ray for $12.99. I knew I would eventually get a player so I picked it up and kept it for when I did. After I got my player set up yesterday, I put Sin City in to make sure it was working properly. Wow is the only word I have that describes the picture. I had no idea just how amazing it could look or what a difference it would make. Being into photography, the best way I can describe it is by comparing a matte finish photograph to one finished on pearl or metallic paper. It is stunning.
I own over 500 dvds. I like movies. I won’t replace every single dvd I own with a Blu-Ray (where one exists) but there are some movies that I definitely will replace. Anything that is visually impressive to begin with definitely needs to be replaced. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is at the top of my list as it is my favourite movie. I’ll also replace the 3 X-Men movies, the 2 new Batman movies, The Punisher, the Harry Potter movies… Basically anything that was based on a comic book, that I own, needs to be replaced on Blu-Ray. I have been putting off buying The Crow on dvd because I couldn’t find it cheap and I’m glad I did because that’s another one I’ll just buy on Blu-Ray. When True Blood season 1 is released they are releasing it on Blu-Ray as well so I’m definitely buying the Blu-Ray version of that. I love that show.
For anyone more technically inclined that might be interested, I got the Sony Blu-Ray 350. They had it for sale at Blockbuster for $249.99 which was less than Future Shop had it and seems to be significantly less than many American sites I’ve seen. My TV is a Sharp Aquos LC-32D64U. It’s a 32″ which is just fine for a TV in my bedroom. Someday when I have the money and the space, I will get a much larger TV for my living room.
