50% off of BluRay at Amazon.com

I saw this posted on eproductwars.com:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?r ... 1&plpage=1

It's only 47 select titles, but some of them are pretty good. Excellent way to stock up on BluRay movies :D

Now if only I had a PS3....

That's how I started.... and now I have 9 BluRay titles and still no PS3 :lol:

At least you know when you buy BluRay movies that your format isn't going to up and die on you, so it's safe to buy early :)

Are there any good review sites for BluRay movies? I'd be tempted to pick up something like the 5th Element, but it sounds like the transfer isn't too hot. Since many of these are early BR releases, I'd rather not spend ANY money if they're not really good representatives of the format... but I'd like to read some good reviews to know.

I like these guys personally:

And yeah, the transfer for 5th Element is one of the worst, but it still looks better then an upconverted SD-DVD, and I can attest to that one personally :wink: (I have both, and I compared them on the same screen in a local shop last year)

I think I read somewhere that they were looking into redoing the Blu-ray authoring for 5th Element because it turned out so crappy...
