39 and I don't regret it
:eek1:hell of a lot more than I originally planned on
Haven't made the switch to Blu-ray yet. Which titles are worth the upgrade for those of us who haven't converted yet?
I haven't made the switch either. It feels like I've put too much time, effort and money into my DVD collection. I know I'll have to switch at some point, but I'm putting it off.
42. Wow, that was a lot more than I thought and some of those are boxsets. Each one of them I got on sale.
In most cases they are significant upgrades from there DVD counterparts. Even the two that weren't a big improvement were worth the price I paid to have a slightly better copy.
I try not to purchase what I already own on DVD unless the picture up grade is a MAJOR improvement. I think this will most definitely change as the more obscure Italian horror films make the move to blu. I can't resist me some Fulci, Argento, and the like upgrading.
i've only realy done it on cheap titles, got texas chainsaw blu for £4 sold my dvd for £1.50, purchased storm warning for £4 sold the dvd for £2.50, don't mind a couple of quid any more, i'll leave.
Looks like 17 of my 51 Blu-Ray's are of movies I already owed on DVD.
0, and it'll likely stay that way.
Saving Private Ryan
Trick R Treat
Children of the Corn
V For Vendetta
I was only going to stick to some of the "must" upgradable ones (i.e. The Dark Knight, 300) but ended up upgrading some of them at a really cheap price. I bought the upgrades for like 10 on a lot of them, then sold the DVD for 6. $4 upgrade I can live with.
46 and counting.
Creepshow is a stunner, and of course Halloween looks amazing in HD. I was also very pleased with the quality of the original Friday the 13th.
Carpenter's The Thing is another beauty, and The Shining really shines on Blu-ray.
Hellraiser and My Bloody Valentine (1981) never looked better, same goes for Cujo and Children of the Corn.
I was a bit underwhelmed by The Lost Boys and The Goonies (Regional B) and Black Christmas' transfer remains somewhat 'controversial'.
Fuck, didn't notice I'm up to 70 replaced, 101 blus total.
On the bright side, well over 50% of those replaced I've already got rid of the dvd except when it has to kept for features or coolness.
I'm rapidly approaching 150 blus. Almost all of them
replaced their DVD brethren. I need help.
I sold my DVDs and am slowly replacing my favorites on BD.
Already done King Kong 76, The Deep, Toolbox Murders, Day of the Dead(Arrow), City of the Living Dead(Arrow), Living Dead at Manchester Morgue, New York Ripper, Dead & Buried, Vampyres, Texas Chainsaw Massacre(original & 2003 remake)The Shining and Close Encounters. Quite alot when I list them like this!!!!!
I've had a Blu-ray player since December and am up to around 15 - 20 that were dvd replacements. It's a work in progress and I'm sure there will be more. Converting to Blu-ray also got me to downsize my dvd collection. I reevaluated my collection and realized there was a lot of junk I didn't care to have anymore since I'll probably never revisit again.
The Godfather Part II
The Godfather Part III
An American Werewolf in London
City of the Living Dead
The New York Ripper
North by Northwest
The Day the Earth Stood Still
Army of Darkness
The Monster Squad
15 of my 64 BDs are re-buys.
172 ... 174 if you count The New York Ripper and Run Lola Run, which I had owned on DVD but sold years before I bought the Blu-rays.
