That post on DVD's being a waste of money really had me thinking. Sh!t my complaint of this though has to deal with the blu rays being out. I am not sure(did not check)if this has been mentioned. I hate the fact that blu rays now have all of the exclusives, interviews everything while the DVD may or may not have the directors commentary and thats it.
I was so burnt with The release of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo on DVD which was real sh!tty...then on the Blu Ray version, so many "easter eggs" and everything. Another gripe is I tend to buy certain wrestling DVD's and The Rock's new dvd is one of them. So much was left out on the DVD that was nicley packaged for the blu ray.
Yeah I agree in which someone said that DVD's are slowly walking the plank on the ship. Problem is I have so many DVD's and can't put money into a blu ray right now. So yeah everytime I see a new DVD out on the shelves, makes me also think why bother....can you imagine when The Avengers makes it's way out?
But that's the entire point of Blu-rays...to be able to fit more data onto one disc.
Another example is I've got Peter Jackson's King Kong on dvd.
It's a 3 dvd set. The movie is broken up over 2 discs to fit the added footage of deleted scenes & the 3 rd disc is purely "behind the scenes."
On the blu-ray version all this fits onto one disc, plus the added advantage of better picture & sound quality.
Re: Re: Makes we wonder as well are DVD's as waste.
I understand that. I would rather have a 3 disc set, than a sh!tty made dvd with just the directors commentary. They are not trying with DVD's anymore and if thats the case, why don't they just dissapear.
Because not everybody wants or needs or is the least bit interested in director's commentary or what goes on behind the scenes of a movie.
These people are more than happy to buy the dvd version just for the main feature itself.
My friend told me Blu Rays will be getting affordable soon. Not really sure I need to check for myself. I do know that here in the states at stores like Best Buy, DVD's now go for like $14 and change while the Blu Ray's go for $24...plus change.
I mainly buy TV shows on DVD now (cheaper than blu a lot of the time, assuming they even get a blu release -- Community, American Dad, et al), but when I do buy a movie these days it's because it's... well, disposable, I guess. I bought Dog Soldiers and Wind Chill for five bucks a piece the other day because I wanted to see a good horror movie and went in cold with both. When I buy a blu-ray it's because I want the high-quality picture and sound and something that I can hold onto for the long-term (such as it is with home entertainment).
well i think some dvds are waste of money!! cause if you wait while then you can buy then cheaper on blu ray!! now blu rays are coming down!! i recently brought 4 blu rays for at $4 bucks an peace at target!! they had like whole shelf full of 4k blu rays!! now i think in year or 2 there probably wont be any blu rays!! but the 4k blu rays coast $25 to $30 bucks an peace!! im not going to start over with blu rays then you got to buy 4k blu ray player then an smart tv!! but i don't even think 4k blu ray players plays dvds!! but thats why im not going to buy me an new game system cause then it coast $500 hunderd dollars then you got to start over with video games they coast $60 bucks an peace!! then now you got to buy an smart tv for the graphics to look real looking!! im not much of an gamer like i used to be!! im just sticking to regular blu rays!! i try not to get dvds unless there not on blu ray yet!!
