Considering the current Blu release looks great, this one should be nothing short of phenomenal.

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


This should be the year for Blu-Ray to dominate sales. I've seen some ads for players as low as $79, with some major brands of HD-TVs under $300. Best Buy has a 50" Plasma for less than I paid for a 37" LCD a couple of years ago.

Santa came a little early for me, dressed as a UPS guy...

And he dropped off V: The Original Miniseries, V: The Final Battle, & Moonlight Mile
Having the first two of those on DVD is nice, and the latter for 90% off wasn't bad neither.

Studio insiders from WB, Sony(Columbia) and Paramount all agree on one thing. Brace yourself for an unfathomable onslaught of catalog releases on Blu-Ray. In other words, if you have a favorite movie not yet released on Blu, it probably will be released in 2011/12.

Now, the quality of the catalog releases is what is in question. There are a lot of older films being slapped on Blu with no restoration (just using old Laserdisk transfers) or they just slather them with DNR (digital noise reduction) to make them look sharper - while stripping away all the fine detail in the image.

DNR is the devil, but this is what you get when so many complain about excessive film grain, and "soft image". The studio tampers with the film instead of staying true to the respective source.
Proper restoration is what every film deserves with no edge enhancement, or grain removal. After all Blu-Ray is the last stop in a movie medium. A picture that can rival(or duplicate) the actual film source.

Viol-Ray with 3D Enhancement capability will be the next stop, and certainly not the last.
