I buy blu rays because eventually DVDs will go the way of the VHS. I'm just being prepared.

Though, I usually just download movies onto my computer lol because thats REALLY being prepared.

I actually miss VHS. Like, you really cant find it anywhere anymore, like floppy disks.

 

I happened to stumble upon some old VHS tapes in my abode, but I couldnt play them. I dont know, but I felt somewhat depressed by this.

Same here. I have some tapes but the VHS broke down some years ago. I even had such pearls like Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos or Live by the Fist. I loved those movies as a kid. I had Transformers, G.I. Joe and Visionaries. Man, those were the shit when I was few years old.

Just finished watching Ordinary People  (1980).  

Timothy Hutton is amazing at  showing grief and pain on screen. I noticed it first on Leverage; there is something  very natural and visceral about the way he does it and it's come out on full display in this movie.   

This is probably the most realistic depiction I've seen of a young man going through PTSD and survivor's guilt after a suicide attempt.  The ending was fitting and bitter sweet.

Eventually, everything gets replaced by newer technology. But since neither format is likely to become obsolete anytime soon, I'm sticking with DVD's. And even when/if the time should come, they'll still have value. Just as physical copies of first edition comics have monetary value, even though those same books can be downloaded digitally.

I used to have VHS tapes of Batman: The Animated Series episodes, various Disney and  non-Disney animated movies.

after all the "Skyfall" talk i had to rewatch it and was glad i did but quick question when Silva took out his mouth piece(what ever you wanna call it, i guess/) why did his skin on his face deteriorate and then soon as he put his so called dentures back in, his face went back to normal?(did i miss something?)

 

also wanna say it was a great movie(SkyFall) imo but putting it against "Casino Royal" (nope) it def set the bar to high, as i've read( i think i'm right from old posts, crossing fingers i read them right) from other posters and by my standards as well, it might be my all time favorite right now and i love all the bond movies except for a couple few, again imo

@White Zangetsu  Yeah, me.

 

I am on the Blu Ray train because the difference between it and DVD is pretty substantial. Hell, even shows that i watch on TV that are in "HD" look better when I get them home on Blu Ray. I want the best possible picture and sound quality when I watch so I need Blu Ray. I REALLY wish the rest of the US would get on board because their insistence on "sticking with DVD" means that far too many properties that would benefit from a HD release don't get it. Empire, Steven Universe, The Americans, Covert Affairs, ect. You can get a Blu Ray player for $50 bucks on Amazon, and the Blu Rays themselves aren't much more expensive than DVDs.

He had a cyanide capsule in his tooth when he was working for MI6. He tried to activate it when he was captured, but it instead burned away the inside of his face, so he wears those dentures to fill it out and look normal.

i get that but i just dont understand why when he took it out he was disfigured then, when he put it back in he was normal?(did i miss something?)


 

so i just watched "Batman vs Robin" was a good watch but why is Robin(damian) so OP(i dont pay attention to the comics but for him to stand on par with Nightwing and Batman seems a little far fetched imo but again i dont follow DC comics)

 

edit: i know hes bruce son and ras aghul(sp?) grandson but to be that strong and experienced? just wondering is all, thnx

also who was the bad guy at the end, it looked like the older version of Nightwing

...a piece of the denture goes up into the side of his cheek that was destroyed and fills it out.

Like how doctors fill cavities in your teeth with artificial shit.

Saw it myself, back on this past Sunday, when it premiered.

 

Pretty much a more thorough look at Scientology.

An overall further confirms how whacked out it is.
