Top Five Must Buy Blu Rays for Christmas

Ok, Ok, Ok. So you’re buying someone a Blu Ray player for Christmas and you don’t know which Blu Rays to pick up in addition to the Blu Ray. Our own Blu Ray Junkie has come up with the top five must buy Blu Rays to get for Christmas.

#5-Transformers- this action pack flick is filled with every little boy’s fantasies, robots that turn into cars, and Megan Fox of course. Apart from breath taking special effects and up to minute cgi, you cant ask for a more non-stop action filled bd flick.

#4-Casino Royale- Apart from a great story line, and an awesome cast , this has to be be one of the best bonds ever. Outstanding 1080p picture quality and a crisp 5.1 surround sound, this bond do will do far from dissapoint.

#3-Cars- One of the first bd discs that i saw that made me say “WOW”, for the breathtaking picture quality, the one that put my tv to the test for sure, and also one of my kids favorite movies to watch on movie night,this is by far the best looking bd disc out there in the kids genre!

#2-Iron Man- If you saw this movie in the theathers and loved it, just wait untill you get it home and put it in your bd player. You will surely be the first to pat yourself in the back for a great (home theather) investment. This movie is in that category that you just cant leave out of your list.

1-The Dark Knight-this movie has already grossed over 530,280,200 dollars and was just released this year. the best of the series with out a doubt, no disrespect to the original but from head to bottom this movie is the one that if your
 shopping for the whole set up, this is the one that you need to start with without a doubt.

 Handsdown one of the best movies of all time in outstanding 1080p, 5.1, surround sound with deleted scenes, behind the scenes, commentary, and plenty of versions of the movie to choose from. PERFECT!!!!!

Step Brothers: High Definition Comedy

Step Brothers is one of the movies that is simply hilarious. Will Ferrell and one of my favorite actors John C. Reilly drop hundreds of f- bombs in this funny Blu Ray flick. Some of the scenes are plain outrageous.

Step Brothers is a solid pick up to anyones Blu Ray collection. I’d recommend it for those looking for a good comedy. This is a flick that’s adults only, so don’t watch this with the kids around. If friends are around though, pop it in the Blu Ray player and get ready for laughs.
Step Brothers will likely be compared to Talladega Nights as it should but this movie has a great deal of much more profanity laced humor than Talladega Nights. What this film does is succeed by allowing Will and John to dish out a bunch of f-bombs because of the R Rating.
This film isn’t likely to go on sale any time soon, but still would still be worth the funds if you have’ em.

PS3 vs Sony’s $299 Blu Ray Player

Now that several retailers have dropped the price of the Sony BDP-S350, consumers will have a decision to make when buying a Blu Ray player. Do you opt to be a PS3 that allows you to play cutting edge games or go with the stand alone Blu Ray Player?

Blu Ray stand alone players and the PS3 should continue to drop in price. The question before you upgrade to Blu Ray player is, which one to go with.

I think one question that needs to be answered is, if you’re a video game player. If you are, then maybe the PS3 is your best bet. Do know that you will subject your PS3 to much more wear and tear if you take this option.
One benefit of buying a PS3 instead of the Sony Blu Ray player would be that you would save room in your entertainment center. If you’re anything like me you already, you have more than a few components with who knows how many cables intertwined back there. Have you taken a peek behind your entertainment center? 

The PS3 allows you to watch Blu Ray discs but also enables you to play high definition gaming as well as watching DVDs. It’s also a space saver if you choose just to have this alone.

The PS3 will also eventually be developed into a high definition video streaming device. Sony does seem to be dragging it’s feet here.

Moving on the the Sony Blu Ray player, which can be found for about $299 at your local electronics store or found online is a solid piece of Blu Ray hardware. Sony does hope to keep this model on the shelves for some time.

This Sony Blu Ray player does make sense if you’re really not a video game player and want a stand alone Blu Ray player. Although, it doesn’t come with an HDMI cable; it does have all the basics an Blu Ray player should have.

That includes component output/input, hdmi and optical sound. Note that this is also what is on a PS3.

One thing to note on the Sony Blu Ray player BDP-S350 is the load up time. It’s been found that this model has a significantly higher load up time than the PS3 in comparisons.

In the end, it really depends what you’re looking for whether it’s a game machine or simply a high definition Blu Ray player. The PS3 also has a “coolness” factor that is hard to beat.

Hopefully you don’t buy both. We do recommend if you purchase either that you do pick up the extended warranty wherever it’s bought.

Wanted on Blu Ray – Arriving Dec. 2nd

Wanted comes out on December 2nd. Can you ask for anything more than Angelina Jolie in high definition? The movie wasn’t much in the theaters but you can expect that it should at least worth a rental when it’s released.

We’ll post the review once it’s released. Until then, here’s the trailer. Dam, Jolie is hot.

Downey Jr does Blu Ray with Tropic Thunder

Robert Downey Jr. , Ben Stiller and Jack Black are lighting up blu ray players this week. From what we’ve seen, action and hilarious scenes will come in bunches. If you look closely, you’ll spot Tom Cruise in one of his most original roles ever.

The plot to this movie is pretty simple. A overpaid Hollywood cast of characters get sent to Vietnam to make a war film. In order to better get in character, the cast goes guerilla and gets thrown into a war full with real guerillas. The result is solid comedic performances from Downey, Black and Stiller. Downey Jr. will be remembered here for the “white dude playing a black guy”.

As far as picture quality and sound goes, it stands up to most blu ray movies out there. Again, my TV has a little trouble displaying action heavy scenes. Otherwise, the film looks solid in 1080p and 5.1 surround sound will have you pleased.

Lowest Price found online: $26.99 at Amazon

Blu Ray Review:

Must Rent

Here’s a great scene from the movie when they’re actually talking about Blu Ray vs HD DVD!

Fake Blu Rays hit the US

“The Chinese have done it”, as George from Seinfield has said when discovering a cure for baldness. Unfortunately, this is much more serious. A recent article from Wall Street Journal says that authorities have uncovered a stash of pirated Blu Rays.

The fake Blu Ray discs are actually DVDs in 720p. Apparently, these crooks are ripping the high definition content from Blu Ray discs and recording the 720p version and putting it on a regular DVD. Since DVDs are much cheaper, this has created a perfect opportunity for pirates out there.

EBay has begun to warn buyers and sellers to keep an eye out for counterfeit Blu Rays. As if you didn’t already have a reason to not buy stuff on Ebay, here’s another one. The discs found during the raid come with the blue case and even the holographic packaging.

So far the titles that have been spotted as counterfeits have been, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter and Transformers.

One of the signs that you have a fake is that real Blu Ray discs are easily smudged with fingerprints, while their cousin the DVD isn’t.

Our suggestion, would be to stay away from online merchants for now. Such as those as Ebay. Retailers should be fine. And as always, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is.

NetFlix adds another nail to HD-DVDs coffin

As if another nail in the coffin was needed. NetFlix has announced that they will stop shipping HD-DVDs on December 15th, 2008; adding more insult to injury that Blu Ray has imposed upon HD-DVD.

I guess it would’ve been nice for NetFlix to continue to service those that have HD-DVD players, including myself. Unfortunately, it’s likely a cost cutting move. NetFlix had a good run supporting both formats but in the end it’s a smart move now that Blu Ray has won the high-definition war.

The Clone Wars Lands on Blu Ray Tomorrow!

Star Wars fanatics can’t seem to get enough of star wars, in any form. Neither can I. Star Wars Clone wars is likely the best animation high definition Blu Ray to date. Those might argue that Cars still holds supreme but this might be the film to knock it off.

Visuals of light sabers and action scenes are to die for. There aren’t many bright colorful scenes in this but the action scenes are ones that will illuminate your high definition set guaranteed. 

Sound is a plus as is produced in THX and 5.1 Clone Wars puts out crisp clear sound that will warrant you turning it up. We’re currently working on locating the best price found online and will publish it shortly. Until then.

Thanks to our friends at Trailer Addict for the kick ass Clone War Movie poster.
