This is the movie version of the thread we all know in the general section. I personally have just gone high-def and will be upgrading my collection with my favourite movies in BLU-RAY! I thought in this thread share news and tips about releases and bargains! Both DVD and BD (BLU-RAY)!



I have pre-ordered the hmv.com exclusive editions of three of my favourites:

- Persepolis
- Pan's Labyrinth
- Orphanage

here is the link for them for anyone who is interested, the prices are great for blu-ray! this hmv always has an own exclusive slipcase on the releases!

Wow, those are some bargains! I'm glad the BD prices seem to finally be affordabe. To be honest pourya jan, i've not sampled much of Guillermo Del Toros works. Do you recommend them?

I do pedram jan, however his masterpiece is Pan's Lab! Start with that! After that comes Devil's Backbone which has some similarities with Pan's! On the more commercial side he has done Hellboy movies which are also decent. The orphange is produced by him, not directed. But its a good movie. He is directing the upcoming The Hobbit movie now!

Yeah the prices are great! some even cheaper than the DVDs i must say! I am tempted to get Antichrist for that price, even though i havent watched the movie yet!

Thanks pourya jan, i must say Pans does appeal to me, i may pick it up during the weekend. Btw, have you purchased any of these "Reel Collection" exclusives? Many films seem to have been issued in this format but i'm not sure whether they are worth the extra few pounds..

I went ahead and ordered the HMV exclusive (slipcase+booklet). So far the best release until Criterion releases its superior version in winter, but that will be region-locked! sadly!

It's a great movie that should have been issued in one installment, rather than the 2 parts. Del Toro is nothing short of excellent in this role. Thats a nice edition pourya jan. Have you completely abandoned the DVD now, in favour of BD?

to be honest Pedram jan I stopped buying DVDs for the sake of the movies exactly one year ago! And I started to buy blu-ray movies around the same time, however only the special and limited editions like these:

along with some exclusive steelbooks!

However I still buy DVDs if the packeging interests me! Yesterday I bought Gran Torino digipak from Thailand 10 euro delivered!

But yeah, when it comes to movie watching I am all BLU now! :D

Nice sets, particularly the "I am Legend" one! I think the time has come for me to also commit only to BD purchases.

What makes you still buy DVDs Pedram jan? is it the price? Right now the BDs are sold for a reasonable price in my opinion. Sometimes even cheaper than DVDs! yesterday I bought the Swedish BD of Elegy for 7 euros! Thats dirt cheap, it was released month ago! I ordered some from play.com the other day! great bargains delivered for 9-10! However TV series as single seasons are still not worth the price in my opinion! Unless one doesnt know when it will end!
