Blu-Ray\HD video recommendations?
 
Anyone have any recommendations for HD movies, shows, documentaries or other videos that are interesting or look awesome?

My brother and I are still chipping away at the Planet Earth box set on Blu-Ray and its great but I want some more variety.

Any recommendations are welcome. Either Blu-Ray or something downloadable. Preferably in 1080P. I love documentaries too, so if you know of any good ones, that's perfect.

Also, where are some good places to shop for inexpensive BR movies? They are cheaper on Amazon, but still a bit pricey for me.

Here is my current list of Blu-Ray to buy...

Band of Brothers
The Prestige
The Fountain
28 Days Later
Cloverfield
Casino Royale
Blade Runner
Terminator Trilogy
Wall-E
Mad Max - The Road Warrior
Transformers
Iron Man
Predator 1 & 2
Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Costco has (or had, havn't checked in a bit) a series of blu-rays about National Parks that looked pretty cool (and cheap, around 10 bucks/per disc I think)...Might be worth checking out...

Sadly, I've never even seen a Costco. I don't think we have them around here. :(

Capt, do you actually collect movies?

if not why not just get netflix subscription, for same price of single bd release you get a month of rentals.

The Boondock Saints is a great movie. I have it on DVD.

I don't remember seeing the blu-ray at wal-mart though... let alone for that price. I think the DVD is still $9 or $13 at our walmart. I'll definitely check it out tomorrow though.

And yeah nekro, I do sort of collect movies.

netflix doesn't seem to have any information in the sign up process about Blu-Ray though. If the selection or availability of movies is limited I'd rather just buy them.

so far haven't found a blu-ray that netflix didn't have.

i stopped collecting movies couple years ago, i had a gigantic VHS collection before, then i started collecting DVDs. Some of the same movies that I already had on VHS I then bought on DVD. Then blu-ray came along.

waste thousands of dollars on VHS, then DVD, now BR came along, later replaced by something else.

What is the point of collecting it

Good point.

Now that I think about it, I've barely watched the DVDs I have even though most of them are excellent movies. Haven't watched any of the extras either, despite buying several special editions.

Maybe I will just do Netflix. :o

One less thing to spend all my money on would be good. I just filled a shopping cart at amazon with $70 in blu-ray movies and decided to back out since I haven't had any time to watch movies anyway. :p

How much do you spend on netflix and how many can you get at a time?

Wow... they make that way too easy.

I now have a NetFlix + Blu-Ray subscription. :o

Its $11 a month, and for how little time I get to actually watch movies I think that'll work out fine.
