Sorry everyone, but my Blu-rays that I ordered haven't arrived yet so I don't have one to talk about for today or probably the next couple of days. That's okay though because if I had enough money to buy a bunch of Blu-rays everyday then it wouldn't be much of a hobby would it? What makes this hobby fun and exciting is mostly the hunt for great deals. For example, one of my personal rules is that I will never buy a Blu-ray over 20 dollars unless it is a box set or a special edition. This is tricky because most Blu-rays MSRP for about $40-$60! So I am checking websites and reading store ads daily for good deals. Usually I go for movies that are 50% off or more.
Another one of my other personal rules when looking for Blu-rays to add to my collection is that I have to actually like the movie or if I haven't seen it, I have to have heard good things about it. I don't want to buy a bunch of unknown 5 dollar Blu-rays just to make my collection bigger.
Here are some Blu-rays that I have my eye on but am too broke to get:
- Office Space $8.49 on Amazon
- The Book of Eli $10.99 on Amazon
- SWAT $6.99 on Amazon
Well that's my post! I thought in addition to this I would answer some of the questions I have gotten over my past couple of posts.
Aggeron asks: So what do you think about those moviestreamers?
Movie streaming is great when you are strapped for cash, it's what I used to do before I got a job. I still do it now sometimes. But since you are streaming from the Internet the quality is going to be terrible unless you have an awesome connection and even then it wouldn't match the quality that a Blu-ray player gives.
Screaming Hawk asks: How long have you been in film?? Show us some of the things you've made.
I've only been a film student for a year now. I am actually majoring in Film Studies and not Film Production which means I don't make the movies, I more or less write about them. My dream is to be a film critic or a member of film or gaming media like writing for blogs like this one!
Psychologypost asks: nice, did you get a blu-ray player or using a ps3?
I use a PS3. It pushes out the best quality, it has built in wi-fi, and you can play games! WiFi is important for Blu-ray players because there are firmware updates that get released when Blu-rays are updating in format and stuff. Too bad PSN is down hahaha.
Well that's all, if you made it this far then thanks for reading!
