Welcome to the world of blu Philleh :welcome:

Ha, cheers dude!

Is it me or do regular DVDs look better when played on a Blu-ray machine too? I watched The Corruptor the other night and it looked fantastic!

Yeah they the blu-ray players will always make regular dvd look better.Still not as good as a a blu-ray disc but a lot better than using a standard dvd player :)

Yep. When it was a really groovy treasure trove of things.

I got my first ever DVd from there..."Organ". The R1 DVD of that wacky Japanese body horror thing.

Picked up all the old VHS of "Bubblegum Crises" and "Yurusei Yatsura" as well.
As well as the R1 double VHS of "Natural Born Killers" and NIN's great "Closure" double VHS.
Started going when I was child (about 16 years before I moved to Hanley) and picked up some great stuff from "Talisman" boardgames to 'Conan' novels, to "2000 AD" books.
Memories........!

True - it probably should have looked a bit better. It's still well worth the upgrade, imo.

I grabbed Memories of Murder, Inglorious Basterds, Pan's Labyrinth and Dark Knight - can't wait to get more already!

Enjoy!

Will you be upgrading many films?

I started by just selecting a few classics, but I've since upgraded on many titles - as an addict!

Philleh 19th December 2009 02:50 PM

I'm going to keep it to my favourite cult and art-house films for the time being, focus on upgrading those. I was tempted to pick up Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, but HMV wanted 22 for it and I already have 3 copies of it! ha. But I will get it if I can find it cheaper.

HMV also wanted 35 for Usual Suspects!! :ack:

yeah it was loads better then, i used to get quite a few things from there too but i cant remember any of them, did you like organ? i haven't watched it for ages but i remember it being quite good
