Lord of the Rings will be epic on blu-ray. All I want now is Battlestar Galactica and I will be happy. Stardust will be good as well.

Pennywise3364d ago

They need to start putting movies with trilogy/sequels on ONE DISC.

WhittO3364d ago

Ye id love to have Battlestar on Blu-ray, since the effects look amazing in HD, better effects than alot of films !

Lotr blu-ray .. FINALY

Have been waiting for their relase quite time, but with no luck. Good to see that they are finaly nearing "completion"?

butterfinger3364d ago

I really really wish they would go ahead and put these all on one disc. I get especially annoyed with TV series. There is no reason that Heroes Season One needed to be on 5 BLU RAY discs.

PirateThom3364d ago (Edited 3364d ago )

They could fit the whole series on one disc, but it's not going to be in HD.

It's all to do with cost against the best possible transfer.

No point in having Blu-ray and then the actual video being no better than DVD.

UnwanteDreamz3364d ago (Edited 3364d ago )

Some are put on one disc. I bought Dexter season 1 on BR and it came on one disc. You would think they would want to be more cost effective.

Watchmen on BR FTW! I know it's not as good as the GN because I own it.

butterfinger3364d ago (Edited 3364d ago )

Not being able to put it in HD is BS since we all know they can layer it and Pioneer said their 400GB BD they made would work in BR players currently out.

@UnwanteDreamz - That's odd if you actually have Dexter Season One on BR, because I have Dexter Season One on BR and it's 3 discs. Every version I've seen is 3 discs.

EDIT: NVM PirateThom - I just read another article on the Pioneer BD that says it will definitely not work with existing players. However, I would still prefer to have less special features and more actual footage on one disc.

Pennywise3364d ago

Thom, only if it fits man... I dont want downgraded quality. TV seasons should be on one disc.

PirateThom3364d ago

A two hour movie fits on a 25GB Blu-ray disc.

You could probably have 4 TV episodes on a 50GB disc.

I find nothing wrong with that, if it maintains the quality.

Blu-ray was about increasing quality, not reducing the number of discs for most movies.

SaiyanFury3364d ago

Good $hit, LOTR on BD. It looks good on DVD but I can't wait for this. I hope they give us the extended special edition cut of the movie as that's what I've been watching, so it'd suck if that stuff were left out. It ties the movie together better once you've seen it.

Fencefry3364d ago

I have all three extended edition DVDs, can't wait for this. (IMO making of is better than actual movie)

1) Star Wars Saga
2) LOTR Trilogy
3) HBO Original Series (Six Feet Under, Sopranos, Oz, The Wire, etc)

Last I heard Lucas was working on releasing the Saga in 3-D. I'll pass. Give me Blu!

SupaPlaya3365d ago

but perhaps a remake of IV, V, and VI?

WIIIS13365d ago

LOTR - about time! Blu-ray player beginning to collect dust!

Mr Blings3365d ago

I cant believe it isnt already out. Now we need Star Wars...all six flicks. I also cant believe Gladiator isnt out yet in blu-ray...I havent bought a single movie for blu-ray since ive had my ps3 close to 18 months. i was received batman dark knight as a gift. I rent via netflix for all my other blu-ray needs. I would gladly buy any and all of the lord trilogy, starwars trilogy and gladiator day one.

koehler833364d ago

I think you'll wanna read the article beyond this painfully misleading title:

Lord of the Rings (animated)

TMRBac3364d ago

Animated and the theatrical Trilogy. Both are coming to Blu-ray, likely on the same date.

butterfinger3364d ago

perhaps YOU should read the article.
