Who here gets excited when they hear Blu-Ray...i do!  

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
**i have both formats...so this is not a fanboy post***

Anyway, i dont think there is anything else more exciting in my life of college and work than heading to best buy and see those beautiful blue cases standing right in front of me.

I loved seeing Casino Royale in yesterday and it had that nice tight plastic wrap on it...not the loose cheesy plastic wrap that is tear off on some of the HD-DVD's i notice

Movies are very exciting once again, ive always loved them..but buying DVD's were really boring to me. I guess im just slap happy right now.

Anyone else love the feeling of seeing all of those Blu-Rays, those sleek boxes. The really good tight plastic packaging where it feels like it almost doesnt even have plastic wrap on it!!

Woo...dont call me gay...i just have a passion for this.

While I don't really get so excited about the physical media or packaging...

I am a lot more excited about renting and buying movies now with Blu-ray than I was with SD.

Before BD I hadn't rented a movie in 3-4 years, I just joined BBO, and have already been to the local blockbuster twice.

I kind of understand your excitement. I've owned blueray for a month and have bought a new movie every weekend we go out to the mall! It's way more exciting for sure.

It looks like you're into tight plastic wraps. A new psychographic category?

You guys should know that tighter plastic equals better audio/video quality. I changed the case of one of my BDs to one with tighter plastic, and I noticed an immediate difference in picture quality.

There is a natural sensual quality to enjoying fine stuff. I actually understand what you are saying! I have by HDDVD and BD lined up on a piece of fine wood gently lighted with a genuine Tiffany lamp. Hmmmmmm........

Back in the LD days it was very cool to buy a new disc and it felt like I had purchased something of high quality. I couldn't afford many discs, but cherished the ones I had and looked forward to each new purchase.

DVD started out that way for me, but the difference was that I could buy them for great deals and I quickly amassed a larger collection that I ever could've imagined with LD, preordering every new release that I had even a mild interest in. In addition the prices came way down to VHS levels over the years. This is a VERY good thing mind you, but it really devalued the format to the point where they have almost zero resale value. A few of my DVDs are cherished collectibles but the vast majority would probably go for less than $5 on ebay. So over the past few years my purchases slowed WAY down, not only due to the above, but also due to the impending HD formats.

So I understand what you mean about BD. I've purchased more movies since I got my PS3 a few weeks ago than any similar time period over the last several years. They actually have some value and the quality can be stunning, and that's what's really exciting about the new format and each big new release.

Same for me.. I look foreward to each new Blu-Ray disc purchase in the same way as I did with Laser Disc...Even though Laser Disc packaging is far superior to Blu-Ray...

In LD days, it was imperative that the LD shrink wrap be removed quickly, if left on the cover, they supposedly can warp the disk. This of course created a demand for the plastic sleeves that go outside the cover, so I've always suspected that the urban legend was started by people who make these new plastic sleeves.
