The only thing holding BD back is HDTV price...which is steadily falling...

in fact I'm hoping to have a new 46" Bravia Z4100 HDTV in the coming weeks...Amazon now has it for $1600 shipped...where it was $2300 + shipping when it released in September...

My mom and pop rents BLU for 2 bucks a day. Glad I rented and did not purchase TROPIC THUNDER and HANDCOCK. With all the hype I thought Tropic Thunder would be better. It was just ok. RDJ was funny. Hancock was horible.
