Why do people who don't care about physical media love to parrot "By the way, it's not really yours" when speaking about discs, as if the legal disclaimers and terms of use make any practical difference? Speaking practically, the disc and the information stored on it is mine. The studio will never come to my home and take that copy, so why even bring it up? There are plenty of laws that have no practical impact on my life.

Yeah those people are stupid, however i do laugh my arse off when they say you're only buying the license you don't own it, well yeah i own it, and i trade and sell it all the time.

What you get with blu ray (which isn't much) it isn't worth the price of admission.

Depends on the film and screen. The difference between a well transferred film on a giant (50"+ screen) is astonishing.

To be fair, there are a LOT of shit Blu Rays too.

That's it though, i'm not buying it for movies, im just buying S3 of Cobra Kai on DVD, don't need Blu Ray as i have no need to see the actors black heads or the pores on their noses.

Sure, just get what you need :) Mad to dismiss the entire medium though, it's such a jump in quality. I've been arguing against streaming for about a decade now with my "cinephile" friends :P

Oh i'll never stream, hate things like Netflix. As for Blu Ray, i just don't see the value, sure it might look a little nicer, but paying an extra $10+ for that is not worth the money when DVD does a great job.

@Chutebox: Honestly i don't buy movies and Cobra Kai has been the only tv show i've bought in the last 5yrs, im not really the kind of person that watches a lot of tv, be it tv shows or movies. So yeah DVD gets the job done.

I have an XBOX ONE X and it has a Blu-Ray Player. I used that to watch Bill and Ted: Face the Music. Even the standard XBOX ONE has a Blu-Ray Player.

@i_p_daily: Kinda the same really, when it comes to DVD. Can quite happily lower the quality.

A lot of that is probably due to growing up on VHS.

Get higher quality when can get it. But not life or death type shit gonna fixate over.

Yup, probably won't get it right away, but definitely scooping eventually. Can now consider the WiiU officially worthless lol.

But yeah, cosign on some new shit. Still a few Switch games I need to get around to, but ready for the next round of heavy hitters.

Still need WWHD, TPHD and Xenoblade Chronicles X for that to happen. I also wonder where that rumored Skyward SwordHD is?

@ConanTheStoner: Yo bro, Wii U is still awesome. Some of these switch ports are inferior to the OG, like pikmin, dk, w101 cappy toad etc. Plus yoshi wooly world hasn’t been ported, love that game. Wind waker HD. TP Hd sucked though, Wii U can have that port lol.

Also, there’s a few Wii games that are widescreen only, and are letterboxed on my Sony trinitron ; for those games Wii U is great on my modern set. You can even jailbreak it and have the entire Wii/GC library on it! (if you own them, don’t strike me down mods) Not to mention the Wii mode virtual console.

But yeah, 3D world is definitely not one of those ports. I think it’s funny, because I think it looks at least as good as odyssey lol. You like no more heroes Conan? I’m pretty excited for 3!

Hell no, Nintendo is basically

But I just use pro controllers for everything and leave it docked. Sucks for people that use them though.

Someone left some Christina Aguilera DVDs by the mailboxes, so I'm trying to see if they will play/rip. I don't know anything about her music, but I like concert films and music videos. I forgot how badly other people abuse discs. The laser sides look like someone scraped them across concrete. I will throw them out after, because they smell like makeup.

Maccaulay Culkin wants Donald Trump removed from Home Alone 2. The sad thing is that Disney (who now owns Home Alone) actually does censor their later versions of movies to make them more politically correct. I'd rather just leave these movies as products of their time.

Credits blooper deleted from the Toy Story 2 UHD:

I'm grateful the previous Indiana Jones movies stayed with Paramount, who don't censor their legacy. Those movies are so "problematic" now.

I think that's pretty dumb to remove something like that. I get it, Trump sucks, but he exists and it's not like him pointing a finger in a hotel lobby to give direction is particularly offensive.

Lol I still have my VHS copy somewhere of Toy Story 2 with those bloopers. Removing that gag just makes it more infamous.

@Chutebox: if they do, it’s on the same level as any other main controller getting loose over time. I have 2 pro controllers and no issues yet.

@MonsieurX There’s lots of games I would recommend, but at the top of the list besides odyssey is luigi’s mansion 3. Oh and bayonetta 2 if you’ve never played it. Pretty sure you had a Wii U though?

lol repeated viewing. its chore for first time. hack I was skipping some scenes.

although final 30 hours were excellent. the showdown between frank and harmoica guy, the truth reveal.

Good, bad ugly is much better imo. no one can beat clint eastwood.

Back of the box.

Clint Eastwood. was originally to play Harmonica. Although glad he didn't. Charles Bronson has an unspoken steeliness.

For me The Bad And Teh Ugly is great, for sure, but that's the one that drags. Tend to prefer For a Few Dollars More over it.

@uninspiredcup: RDR2 should have been live action western movie of our generation that can pay homage to older western movies. since it suck as video game but having incredible story, world, soundtrack and characters can be qualify for a hollywood movie.
