Here's mine. It's small, but growing.  I don't think I replace many DVDs with BDs, but just start buying BDs from now on.

Don't own a Blu Ray player. So I don't have a collection of Blue Ray disks, just DVD's. Happy I could contribute to the discussion...hehe

Bought today - Eagle Eye and The Women. As I predicted, both arrived two weeks early. Also saw Burn After Reading, GhostTown and The Duchess in store but will get them another time.  

Here is a nice pic of my beautiful purchases today. I'm now finding it strange to hear that I can get some of January releases before Christmas. :shock:




I have just found a new Blu Ray website/Forum  that is way cool!!! You not only get news, but get to chat with other Blu Ray lovers and you get your own Blu Ray Collection built into your profile. Nice!!!

The Dark Knight: 2-Disc + Digital Copy
The Dark Knight: Limited Edition with Batpod
Made of Honor


The BatPod looks great, tested the disc and the IMAX scenes are incredible. I had doubts about the shifting rations, but turns out it doesn't bother you at all. The timing and the way they managed to do it is exceptional, very well done in this respect!

I went through 4 of those!!! It took about 6 phone calls for the US company to send it out to me properly in Australia (that is pack it so it wouldn't break).

Everytime I had to ship it back, they would credit me the shipping costs. I always seemed to get back a bit more than what it cost me to ship - due to a weird way they were calculating the exchange rate - and eventually I was credited back the price of the disc as well....

Funny thing happened to me this week. My retailer got sent an advanced copy of "Passengers" on Blu Ray Disc, even though it is not supposed to be out till May 12th!! So I bought it (The only copy), and now I have if not the only copy two months in advance. Can't watch it though. "Passengers" is region locked. But not to worry. I have a brand new Multizone Blu Ray Disc Player on the way. Just waiting for my supplier to release a new model. It is not made by one of the major brands. It is made locally in Australia. In times like these, you need to support jobs in your country, not buy products that are made elsewhere, especially China!!

I also bought Quantum of Solace, also region locked. I'll be watching both in a few weeks anyway, so bought both QOS and Passengers to keep for later.

Mark, what brand is the Blu-Ray player that you are buying here? How have they made it region free?

Star Trek was really worth the numerous dips. Cant wait to get seasons 2 and 3 on Bluray. Don't know if the movie boxset is worth it.
