I mean I love HD video, I just don't like the product..
Anybody feel the same way?

That's why Criterion doesn't use them either, because they have TASTE, so they saw immediatly the uglyness of it.

Completely agree. The blue cases do help to distinguish the product from regular DVDs, but it's aesthetically very cheap looking. I hope to see more clear cases or black cases in the future. If you need to set it apart from DVD, put a blue sticker on it like Criteron. That's how it should be handled.

No not really, if they had clear boxes they would be playstation 3 games or 3d blu-rays or black boxes you would never find them in the stores that easy. So they are fine the way they are.

Very nicely done, Shark.

I see at least two Hanna Montana discs in there. I'm not sure you've achieved that...

You need one to open the portal to Hell and release the dead.

You need a second to hurl at your enemies.

You need the third to get you back home and close the portal to Hell.

Who doesn't know this stuff?

I probably have near 15 copies of The Evil Dead in total across various formats. The Blu-rays are the LE, give it a few years and I can resell for triple what I paid for them.

I liked the movie and that cover was so nice (Awesome Job) I bought the movie just to use it. I downloaded the cover and then made the necessary adjustments to convert it to an HDDVD cover. (Hope that was okay) The HDDVD was much much cheaper than the Blu-ray.

What do you mean you don't like the product? You mean to say you don't like the packaging, which is a pretty trivial matter. You may not like it, and you may find a dozen people that agree with you, but so what, I can find a hundred people that like the packaging, what does that prove?

Frankly, it doesn't matter if it was black, blue, red, or pink.

Blu-ray is the only high definition physical media there is, the color of the cases is irrelevant.

Not to say I agree at all. The term Blu-ray, given that the technology uses a blue laser is perfectly fitting.

And since it uses a blue laser, and since they decided to call it Blu-ray, using blue cases is only a natural progression.

how is it people still think blurays are expensive?

this year so far... i have bought 12 movies and spent an average of $6.99 per movie

now a few of these were 2 packs (Kelly's Heroes/Where Eagle Dare for $13.49, Crank/Crank 2 for $9.99, and Ernest Goes to Camp/Jail for $7.99) these days i don't often spend more than $10 for a movie on bluray and rarely will i spend more than $15 instead i set the bluray.com price tracker and wait

It was a couple of years ago. Someone was selling several sets of them on Ebay. I got the prints and had them framed.
