    I've got well over 100 BDs

    Where do you get the majority of your BD's from Darren? I've bought some from Movietyme, who were okay, and Amazon.com, where I ended up paying some import costs. The annoying thing is that I have an Asian PS3, which is Region A US and Japan, but if I go shopping here in the UK it's a bit of a gamble buying BD's in case they're region protected. Did that with Eastern Promises, bought for 12 at Asda only to find it's UK only.

    Region protection is such a pain in the arse.

    Are there really 100 Blue Rays worth getting...seriously?

    I'm struggling to get over 10. So many of them are either shit films, or the transfer isn't really that good.

    Where do you get the majority of your BD's from Darren?

    I've bought about a quarter of them from Movietyme (300, 2001, One Missed Call, Disturbia, Seven Years in Tibet, The Aviator, The Mummy, The Mummy Returns, etc., etc.), the remainder are from Play.com, except where they're cheaper on DVD.co.uk (Play.com do have a nasty habit of listing BDs at 23.99 and I refuse to play that much for a movie on one or even two discs).

    PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U, Xbox One, PC (Intel Core i7-4770K, 16 GB, 4 GB EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 SC, Windows 8.1 Pro), iPad 4, iPad mini with Retina Display.

    I'm off to Hong Kong in a month or so, I've got a feeling that my luggage could be all BD's and no clothes by the time I return!

    You forgot to add the music CDs as well, been going through a bit of a mad 80s thing at the moment, buying cheap CDs left, right and centre... ;)

    ... but, yes, I do tend to get between one and five parcels per week at least (I think I'll be needing a bigger house soon!). I got four this morning (all CDs) and I'm expecting two tomorrow (90125 by Yes on CD and The Sixth Sense on BD)! :)

    Darren, have you watched any of the other 4 bladerunner discs? I'm currently in the middle of the 3hr docu about how the film was made, casting, writing etc. Fascinating stuff.

    I've watched all of the extras and four of the five cuts of the movie and it is a brilliant set, in fact it's by far my favourite BD. Shame the extras are on DVDs though, I'd rather they'd been 1080i on BD but that's just me being pedantic because as it is the 5-disc Blade Runner set is the best BD in terms of content. A friend at work also bought me the 5-disc DVD version in the limited edition tin box too which was nice. Only watched the new cut though.

    It's a UK one, originally a launch 60 GB HDD model but it now has a 320 GB WD Scorpio HDD fitted.

    Oh and I've just checked Movietyme and they have Cloverfield listed as region-free and costing just 9.99 if you're interested (which I presume you are are as you mentioned it in your list).

    I bought Terminator 2 and Stargate SE last week on BD and was a bit miffed to discover that neither movie has any English subtitles at all. I mean bloody hell, I can accept no extras at 13 each but to not have subtitles is, IMO, a crime in this day and age (it's one of the reasons I don't download movies from the 360 Video Marketplace).

    T2 is the Director's Cut though, much to my delight, and I own the Ultimate Edition on DVD, which does have subtitles, so I pretty much know the dialogue off by heart now.

    I was going to pick up Total Recall on BD (I don't own this on DVD) but was put off by a review that claimed the picture quality wasn't especially great. I presume this is also bare-bones and subtitle-free too?

    Okay, that's weird...

    If you search for Cloverfield on Movietyme, it lists the DVD version, and two BD versions;

    SDD: Cloverfield (Blu-ray)
    Cloverfield (Blu-ray)

    I can't see any differences, anyone know wha "SDD" means?

    /edit

    Found it, it means "Same Day Dispatch". D'oh! Basically, you pay a slight premium for faster dispatch.

    This is the region-free BD of Cloverfield you want from Movietime: *here*. Weirdly this has gone up to 11.99 now (I'm almost positive it was showing as 9.99 just a few hours ago though).

    Errr, mine's in English. At least, it bloody well better be! :D

    No, you misunderstand what I meant. Both movies are in English but as a hearing-impaired person I prefer to watch them with subtitles and both T2 and Stargate don't have them, which is shocking for a BD really even if they are cheap(ish).

    If it weren't so expensive to get a BC PS3, and it weren't so fucking ugly, I'd do that. But it is.

    BRDs are roughly twice (or more) as expensive as DVDs. That's a bad thing for me.

    SilentBob's argument: "Be rich, then it doesn't matter!"

    Cheers Bob, that's a good idea. :p

    They maybe more expensive than DVDs, that's because DVDs are cheap. It doesn't actually make BRDs expensive, especially considering the difference in quality.

    So anyone who ever bought a DVD for RRP cannot complain abuot the prices of BRDs today. Unless they want a good shafting from me.
