    I don't have Target in Canada so I walked down the street to BlockBuster and picked up the single disc for $19.99. First single disc I ever bought but money's tight.

    Is disc 2 all that? I'm curious as to what I'm missing.

    I picked up the 2 disc DVD set from Wal-Mart today at lunch for $21.96. I look forward to watching it tonight.

    I got the regular two disc version at Target this morning. I briefly thought about getting the excusive casing, but really, I don't have anywhere to display it. I probably won't be able to watch it until the weekend, if even then! It's a busy week.

    Wel, it was grand. The DVD did not disappoint. But now I yearn for a Blu-Ray player just for this movie. Honestly, Serenity & I, Robot looked more phenomenal, but Trek looked great too. Ahh, the illogic of aquiring better systems...

    It's mainly the deleted scenes, as far as I am concerned.:techman:

    I watched the blu-ray tonight with my PS3 hooked up to my TV via Component Inputs.

    :drool:

    Unfortuantly, my TV only has two component inputs which are being occupied by my DVD player and my cable box (I disconnected the DVD player for this viewing.) :(

    I guess I could just permanently disconnect and decomission my DVD player and just use the PS3 as my DVD player (since it'll function as one) but... I dunno. Guess I've no "good reason" to not do that.

    This movie looks gorgeous on Blu-Ray though. Stunningly gorgeous. The picture is crystal clear. And this movie is still all kinds of awesome.

    I thought some of the pieces were really good. The makeup bit was really cool, and all the footage of Nimoy was great. I teared up a bit when Nimoy was thanking everyone on set after he had finished shooting.

    I'll bet you pulled for HD-DVD didn't you?

    Look, even my wife (who wasn't into the whole HD thing. Thought it was a gimmick to sell more TVs, before we got one and a Blu-ray player). She is just as blown away by the picture and audio quality as I am. She rents more Blu-ray titles than I do!

    This is not a gimmick. This is VERY worthy of the reputation it's gotten, but it takes a pair of eyes to appreciate it (I guess).
