I don't have any idea when I'll switch to HDTV and Blu-Ray but I already know that I won't replace most of the DVDs I already have.  I'd buy the LOTR films as well as Star Wars (when/if released) and maybe the Spider-Man films.  I'm coming up blank on anything else, though.

Love movies, love television, and I've seen both on HDTV as well as Blu-Ray movies on HDTV and while I definitely want to go to HDTV, I don't feel a need to go Blu-Ray.

I picked up The Wrestler and Sin City on Blu-ray today.  I also ordered the X-Men Trilogy Blu-ray from Amazon.

How much did you pay for Sin City?  I'm thinking about upgrading but it was $30 at Best Buy and that's too much for me to jump on a movie I already own.

Picked up The Wrestler and Jurassic Park Adventure Pack as it was on sale at Best Buy.

I probably won't be switching to HDTV/Blu-Ray for a while (still in college, and thus, poor) but when I do I'm only going to rebuy super hero flicks, the SW trilogies and other random stuff that I really like. Some stuff like the Apatow movies... do they really need to be on Blu-Ray? The DVD upconversion will be just fine for stuff like that.

This is probably a really dumb question, but will a blu-ray player even work on a "regular" TV?  I only ask because we haven't yet picked up an HDTV (but hope to this summer), but our DVD player seems to be starting to crap out.  I figured since we intended to buy a blu-ray player eventually anyways, it would be stupid to pick up a DVD player only to replace it with blu-ray months later.  I know we wouldn't see the "HD quality", but would it work as a DVD player until then?

Yes.  It'll even play Blu-rays.  Just at standard def.

It's $26.99 this week at Target.

Here's my latest purchase, something to keep me occupied until the next season of Blossom comes out:



I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys good music.

I'm down for both, although I'll wait until one of Deepdiscountdvd's major sales (and hoped I don't get ****** over like I did last year with them and Batman: The complete animated series set).

While I would kind of like that GI Joe set, I have to admit that after watching the DVDs included with the recent Battle Packs, I'm a little less interested.

My fond memories of the show were a little tarnished after watching them recently.  It's pretty campy.  All the "Yo Joe!" and "Cooobra!" yelling was kind of ridiculous.

Sadly - the same can be said with Transformers.  I have the Rhino versions from a few years back and it was really hard to watch some most of the episodes IMO.  I'm glad to have them all, but they're just not as "good" as I thought they were when I was a kid.   :-\

Great memories though....
