  4. Blu-Ray Statistics

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Does anyone know of a list of Blu-ray movies that includes information like audio format, aspect ratio, and 3D? Often times when I go to buy a movie online that information isn't even available. I'm looking for a quality 3D movie that's 2.35:1.
  5. Overwhelmed!--blu-ray recommendation

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    Hello, I've been reading blu-ray reviews on this forum, and I'm overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of information. Perhaps someone can help make it simpler. I'm looking for a good basic player, with no need to access Internet services like NetFlix, and not too expensive, perhaps less than...
  6. The Green Hornet - Blu-Ray Review

    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    Audio: :4.5stars: The Green Hornet has a very well rounded and thoughtful 5.1 DTS-HD-MA. My only complaint is that I felt there was a lack of low end frequency extension when comparing it to the rest of what I felt was a very dynamic audio presentation. Surround activity was plentiful and very...

  9. The Incredibles - Blu-Ray Review

    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    Audio :5stars: Once again Pixar delivers in force with this all-encompassing 5.1 DTS-HD-Master Audio codec. The bass rumbles and many times comes off very rude and offensive! A basshead’s kind of transfer to be sure, but that’s not all! The surround channels get an extremely healthy workout as...

    Buy.com has the original theatrical release of the LOTR trilogy on Blu-Ray for $30 and free shipping! Now I know I will get some flak since it is the original theatrical release version but for $10 a piece I think it is still a deal. those who don't have the DVD version or don't care about the...
  11. Tangled - Blu-Ray Review

    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    [/CENTER] Audio :5stars: This one is a tie folks. For the first time in what feels like forever, the audio and video are dead even. Tangled has a 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio codec and is an incredible experience to be heard. There is a ton of throaty bass, especially in the getaway scene I...

  14. Yogi Bear - Blu-Ray Review

    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    Audio: :4stars: Yogi Bear comes to Blu-Ray in 5.1 DTS-HD-MA and the results are very good, but not what I felt they could have been. The ambient noises in the surround mix are very detailed and clear and the entire sound stage gets a decent workout, but I just felt the sound as whole lacked the...
  15. Issue with Blu-Ray playback on PS3

    Video Game Systems | Video Games
    The issue I have with my PS3 is that I will get the loading circle popping up in the top right corner of the screen during Blu-Ray playback. The loading circle or icon will pop up for a second, then go away. This has been happening for the last few months with my system. It doesn’t effect the...
  16. Blu-ray won't eject

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Anybody have an idea of how to remove a stuck disc in a PS3? First thing is it is acting weird, you hit eject, no disc comes out and the disc does not show up on the display after you hit eject then if you power down the unit then power it back up it will show the disc and allow you to play it...

    Reviewers Private Forum
    I have this in my Netflix queue. The reviews have been pretty good for the most part. It had completely escaped me being on AMC. It definitely looks interesting.
  18. Skyline - Blu-Ray Review

    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    Audio: :4.5stars: The DTS-HD-MA in Skyline is a welcome distraction from the rest of the film. There is plenty to hear in Skyline across every frequency. There is enough LFE to tame the most bass addicted audiophiles and there is a generous amount of surround activity with all out action as...
  19. The Ten Commandments Blu-Ray Screencaps

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    See post lower down: I'm normally very careful to disable all these "negative settings" on my machine to take screencaps - the issue in this case was that I forgot installing the new card would reset them all, I apologize profusely to all affected - this was something that simply slipped by me...
  20. Faster - Blu-Ray Review

    Reviewers Private Forum
    [/CENTER] Audio: :5stars: Not to be outdone by the video, this 5.1 DTS-HD-MA audio presentation is also near perfect. There is not a ton of bass but it is used appropriately and thoughtfully as opposed to many of today’s action films that constantly bombard you with it. I appreciated the...
