    So I dropped by my moms house last night and my sister was watching a moving. The first think I said was why are you watching a bootleg movie the picture is so bad? It turns out she was watching a legit DVD. Anyone here spoiled on Blue Ray? I don’t think I can ever watch a regular DVD again.

    Man, did you really mean to make this sound as snobby as it does?

    In this day and age a lot of people are grateful to just be able to watch anything, let alone insist on a certain format.

    I'm way to spoiled with Blu-Ray. I have blockbuster online movies and my default choice is Blu-Ray movie format. Love the clarity.

    Not so much the blu ray vs regular DVD as I have a hard time watching tv or movies on a standard def. tv over HD. I am not being snobby. :)

    I've honestly never seen a movie Blu-Ray. I can't afford the player, so why torture myself?

    I really like Blu ray. I have an upconvert DVD though, so the DVD picture is pretty good too. The difference isnt enough to ban DVD's all together though.

    I don't mind SD DVD's. Most of my collection is such. I don't think they look bad, especially not to the point of looking like a bootlegged copy. I only buy Bluray if it's an action movie or something with alot of visual eye candy in it. Otherwise I just get SD. These days it's all I even really use my PS3 for anymore.

    I don't have a Blue Ray player...yet. The wife was sitting in Best Buy while I was shopping the other day and noted how great Blue Ray looked...

    So hopefully I'll be getting one soon.

    my tv is broken, and so is my dvd player. i watch movies through my neighbors window, so im happy when they leave the blinds open. that sounds creepier than it really is.

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    Well, I have a 10 year old TV ( old glass tube set) so it makes zero sense for me to buy a blue ray DVD player since it wouldn't make any difference.

    Tell me about it, I got my entertainment system before I bought my house and before my wife lost her job. The good thing is I only pay $20 a month to rent all of the blu-ray I want from block buster.
