Canton: Dude, I watch movies on my laptop. It plays DVDs. Why should I pay more for a separate Blu-ray player, a television (I don't have one), and then more for Blu-Ray discs? I am a poor college student geek who doesn't watch enough movies to justify Netflix, and I like to have physical copies of my media. Used or cheap DVDs are a good way to go.


Used & rental BDs are cheap too.

I've had a BD-ROM drive in my laptop since late 2007.

If by "Subby, enjoy watching "Casablanca" for the 11,000 time on that 16mm projector your gam-gam bought you when you were 7." you mean a movie that isn't another lazy rehash of a fairy tale to meet this months over-saturated bullshiat quota that saps $11 from everyone for a script that the previews presented as written by a bunch of 14 year olds that just saw the Matrix for the first time, then yes, yes I will.

I'm going to go ahead and call it though... the blonde he falls in love with is going to end up being a witch.


Yup, I got that too.

Ah, but is she going to be A) Actually a good witch, B) A bad witch and he eventually has to kill her, or C) A bad witch to start with, but she either stops being a witch or becomes a good witch for love?

digitalrain: The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Obviously this movie is preposterous because Hansel and Gretel never weigh any of the witches before they kill them.

Damn you! Do you even KNOW how uncomfortable it is to snort jamocha milk shake out of your nose?


Well, clearly they must be using some more advanced wood-detection technology than cumbersome scales.

according to wiki:

Filming began in March 2011 and is taking place in Potsdam Babelsberg and in the city of Braunschweig, Germany.[13][14] On December 3, 2011, Entertainment Weekly released the first publicity photo of the film.[15] Initially slated for a March 2, 2012 release, Paramount Pictures pushed it to a ten month delay for January 11, 2013.[16]

so they actually made this last year and delayed it for almost a year. that's always a good sign.

If they're grown-ups, shouldn't they drop the childlike diminutive endings and just be called Hans and Greta?
 
2012-10-29 11:12:19 PM
Okay, so it's no "Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter", and it's not as good as "Krull" or "Conan the Destroyer", and the acting's not quite as good as "Friday 13th- Jason Takes Manhatten"- but, jeez, at least- umm, what was I saying again?

Canton: Well, as a Gemma Arterton fan I can... Okay, yeah, I can wait for the DVD.

ALL OF YOU: TURN IN YOUR GEEK CARD.

If you haven't upgraded to Blu-ray by now I don't know why you're on the internet!

Sheesh.


Mostly this. I'm long past college age but I only have a TV in the house because my fiancée owns it. Until Blu-Ray players and discs come down to DVD price, I'll say "no thanks".

They've been "DVD price" for years now. No excuses.

By the time Blu-ray becomes DVD cheap, everyone will have skipped straight to non-physical media altogether.

You know that Wal Mart $5 DVD bin? Now they have a $7 BluRay bin next to it. I picked up Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2, Three Amigos, Highlander, and Brothers Grimm the other day, thanks to that bin.

So take the premise of Hansel and Gretel and then TOSS IT ALL out the window. and create new story?

name new story something new maybe?

Side note, why the fark is youtube sucking..so..badly. Its slow.. 720p is not reliable.. and now many inline videos actually STOP and pop up the suggection window in the middle of the clip, reacting as if the clip had ended.

what is a DVD? could you use that in a sentence please. also, what is the country of origin?
 
2012-10-30 10:41:24 AM
1. You can pick up a Blu-ray Disc player at Kmart or Walmart for about $59 these days.

2. I always pictured Hansel and Gretel as fat little German kids who stuffed their faces full of candy and sweets whenever they could, and who only escaped the witch due to sheer luck and circumstance (and stupidity on the part of the witch) so they could return to the joyful task of eating the poor old hag's house.

A select few titles are near the high end of DVD prices, but that's not what I mean. I mean, title for title, the Blu-Ray version has to be at parity with the DVD. Also, the players are still too high. The cheapest Blu-Ray players are still in the $50 range, and they are crappier than the $20 Family Dollar brand DVD players.

So you want quality for crap prices, a good restaurant steak for a cheap McDs burger. Not a realistic expectation there.

For the rest of the "mainstream" Blu-ray isn't a premium.

Interesting, so you admit your original statement "They've been 'DVD price' for years now" was bullshiat, since that means they're McDonald's price and therefore beneath you? You make no sense, man.

(Gotta stop hitting that "Add Comment" button before I'm done.)

More to the point, that's not a valid comparison. There was a time when DVD players were several hundred dollars and the discs were $30 a pop, but the quality was still far better than VHS. It's no different now. Your strawman argument is invalid.

Seriously? So you are trying to say with a straight face that DVDs and DVD players were always cheap and so were BD players/discs? You just invalidated your original argument.

I take it you were either a child (or perhaps not even born) when DVDs first hit the market, or you were living in a cave somewhere. My first DVD player in late 1999 was over $200 and it was a mid-tier player. The very first DVD I bought was on sale for $19.98 at Best Buy (Leon (The Professional)), regular price was around $24 if I remember right. And that movie was already several years old.

Here's a Wikipedia quote if you're interested:

"Prices for the first players in 1997 were $1000 and up. By the end of 2000, players were available for under $100 at discount retailers. In 2003 players became available for under $50."

We're just now starting to get to the point with BD that we were in 2003 with DVD, and over about the same time span (Blu-Ray was officially released to consumers in 2006).

Next time you want to rewrite history kid, try it on someone who wasn't already an adult when the technology was born.

I could be cliche and say I've forgotten more about DVD than you know but that would be redundant.

I was *trying* to make you understand Blu-ray is a mainstream product, with mainstream pricing. Has been since 2010 or so.
DVD players below $50 back then were shiat. $50-$90 is not a high price to play for a decent player of any format. Good titles can be found for $9.99 or less.
If you can't buy one you're either poor or just plain cheap.

Fair enough, you have as much intimate knowledge of my experience with the technology as I do with yours. Point taken there.

However, I never said I can't afford to buy into Blu-Ray; I simply choose not to at this time. And I'm far from alone. Look up stats on Blu-Ray adoption compared to DVD adoption over their respective life spans and prepare to have your eyes opened. The curve is just now starting to pick up for the new tech.

I own a very nice TV that is 720p/1080i maximum resolution. This TV is large enough to make my living room look like a small theater, was fairly expensive when new, and has an amazing picture with many years of life left in it. I have zero incentive to adopt Blu-Ray until that TV dies and I replace it with a 1080p unit. I'm not an early adopter when it comes to consumer products; I prefer to save my money and upgrade a little at a time. In fact, if I were a Playstation guy instead of an Xbox guy for gaming, I'd likely already have a small collection of Blu-Ray discs just because I had a built-in player. But I don't, and I don't see the need for the redundancy right now.

The fact that you seem to take deep issue with my financial and entertainment choices says a lot about your insecurity over your own lifestyle. Why don't you stop projecting onto me and just enjoy what you have?

Just going to jump in here and say that waiting until you get 1080p isn't necessary as you probably won't be able to tell the difference and if you're able to it will only be just barely
