I won't be going out of my way to own it, no. If it ends up in a future re-release boxset of the movies, then I suppose it'll have joined my collection under cloak.

I'll be double-dipping right at release...

I'll be picking up the 3 disc Blu-Ray for me and my sixteen year old daughter wants a DVD copy for her room.

I don't understand why you guys buy blu-ray. I mean, I love blu-ray quality films, but hell, it's like 30 bucks for a movie.

Yeah. I have a few Blu-Rays, but none of 'em are recent blockbuster releases. I'd prefer the film on Blu-Ray, but I think it'll come in too expensive for my tastes. On the other hand, I certainly don't want to pay for it twice. Maybe I'll torrent a rip whilst waiting for the prices to drop.

And it's WORTH it.

Think of it this way: Those who have Blu-Ray players will also have HDTVs. You think we want to feed those HDTVs with anything other than the very best quality sources? I'm not putting some crappy standard def DVD in there if I can avoid it.

I do more selective purchasing. So far, the only things I've bought on blu-ray are Blade Runner, The Dark Knight, and the first two seasons of Mad Men.

Star Trek (2009) will be joining the hallowed ranks.
