Wal-Mart Stores Inc. this week began offering select Blu-ray disc titles for $15 and under in the latest bid to spur high-definition sales.
I think i'll pick up two
I need Rambo 2 for my collection but I already have the 1st one on blu-ray and then the trilogy on dvd. I'm on the fence here I'd hate to have my hd collection thrown off but I'd also hate to not add to the worsening American economy here.
o Walmart....you rule the retail world...we know this
How can these old movies be in high-def? I thought you had to shoot a movie with high-def cameras in order for them to be in high-def. These old 80s or even 90s movies can't be in true high-def can they?
If I remember correctly, film actually has a pretty high resolution. It was old storage mediums like VHS and old display mediums like tube TVs that held back consumer video resolutions.
Most movies filmed are in a resolution above 2K. It's just its taking TV technology awhile to catch up to the higher resolutions. From Wikipedia on Digital Cinematogrphy: "In general, it is widely accepted that film exceeds the resolution of HDTV formats and the 2K digital cinema format, but there is still significant debate about whether 4K digital acquisition can match the results achieved by scanning 35mm film at 4K, as well as whether 4K scanning actually extracts all the useful detail from 35mm film in the first place. However, as of 2007 the majority of films that use a digital intermediate are done at 2K because of the costs associated with working at higher resolutions. Additionally, 2K projection is chosen for almost all permanent digital cinema installations, often even when 4K projection is available." link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Scroll down to the resolution paragraph. The thing with older movies is that the film maybe not as pristine and or dirtier then todays films.
Yea I just got back from Wal Mart and saw a couple blu ray titles for 15 bucks, I was tempted to pick up a few of them.
and you didnt!
CAN THEY DO THIS?!?!?!?????????
Why not? They're the world's biggest retailer....they can do whatever the hell they want.
They have no choice. This is so sad.
I just picked up that movie earlier this afternoon. That movie is a classic. That was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid.
Whilst were on a shopping site, i have a used bike for sale if anyone is interested?
I picked up 3:10 to Yuma on Sunday. Tempted to pick up Blade Runner: 5-Disc Edition online for $15. My store still has it for $30.
It actually cost US$40 per blu ray movie in my country.
That's still cheap. In Norway, the worlds most expensive country, a Blu-ray movie costs approx. 53 US$. National Treasure 2 - Book Of Secrets Blu-ray http://www.spaceworld.no/ws...
Dang blade runner collectors editons is only $15!!!!
no one cares for cheap movies... which were probably marked down because no one wanted them in the first place... you sell this stuff by lowering the price o the TVs and Blu-Ray players you need to play them.
i bought 2 yesterday couldn't pass it up.
My store isn't selling them, they said it's online only.
These things should be five dollars in the crap bin!! $15 is still to much!
it doesnt shock me at all between lowering the prices on the discs and the 100 dollar gift cards. you know their hurting. they have to do something to stimulate sales. They definetly backed the wrong format thats for sure.
