GOLDEN GLOBE® WINNER AND BAFTA EE RISING STAR NOMINEE AWKWAFINA STARS IN:
AVALIABLE ON BLU-RAY, DVD AND DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ON 13TH JANUARY 2020
Lets face it I have been waiting for it to be announced when the Lord of the Rings Extended Edition was going to be released on Blu-Ray since getting my PS3 to play Blu-Rays on. I did not want to buy the theatrical versions like I did with the DVDs and decided to just wait for the Blu-Ray to come out!
June 27th 2011
That is the date when the Blu-Ray extended edition is to be released and I am definitely going to pre-order this! Over the past few months I had decided not to buy DVDs anymore and even Blu-Rays (until they become cheaper of course). But Lord of the Rings is the reason I love cinema and films so much. I have to own the extended versions on Blu-Ray!
Yesterday saw the release of ‘Remember Me’ which I really enjoyed at the cinema. It actually helped show that Robert Pattinson can indeeed act as well which was a bonus. I headed to HMV to buy the DVD (it is very rare that I buy a DVD on release date now). But when I was standing looking at it, the Blu Ray version was only £5 more than the normal DVD, with the Blu Ray containing a normal DVD as well. So I went ahead and bought my first Blu Ray DVD – now all I need is a Blu Ray player . . .
Well this will probably suprise you but I am still not part of the blu-ray revolution! Yes I know that really is bad isnt it! But I do need a new TV in my room before I can go for the blu-ray dvd player etc. I think I have now waited long enough and must join a better viewing world in terms of film at home. Sky HD on the TV in the living room, but upstairs an old TV with normal pictures . . . yes it really is time to go HD and blu-ray I reckon!
I have been looking at that Samsung player from HMV as you get 6 blu-ray dvd’s with it for only £149.99 which seems like a great deal to me. Unless anyone can point me in the direction of a better deal?
So should I take the plunge and go blu-ray???
For quite a few years now I have had problems buying DVDs of films which I have never seen before. These films may have one of my favorite actors in, won a lot of awards (mainly Oscar’s), I had heard a lot about the film or I missed it at the cinema. This is made more difficult when HMV, Asda and play.com all start selling DVDs for £2 or £3.
This morning I decided to have a look and see how many of my DVDs that I have not ever watched . . . just the ones that I have never seen the film either. I have 30 of these DVDs and my plan is to watch them over the next few months. I probably have tried to watch a couple of them before but other than that they are films that I have never got round to seeing.
I have decided that I am not going to buy any more DVDs of the films I have not yet seen until I start watching some of these which are just sitting around. That may encourage me to watch these a little faster.
Here is the 30 long list of films I plan on watching over the next few months . . . or maybe longer I am not going to put a timescale on it but they are now top of my to see list. Why not? I have them ready to watch whenever I want.
