If you glance over to the right of the main page on this site you’ll see that I’ve added a new category of posts — Essential Blu-rays.
Posts in this category are short reviews of the Blu-ray editions of movies I consider important — essential to any home collection of movies, worth buying a Blu-ray player to watch.
I’m an enthusiast of the Blu-ray format — it allows one to view movies at home in a quality only exceeded by the projection of good prints on a large screen in a theater, and they’re usually movies that one has little chance of seeing projected in a theater these days.
The popularity of the Blu-ray format has fallen short of expectations — people increasingly prefer to stream movies at home in far lower quality than the Blu-ray format makes possible. But there are many movies, and not just the great ones, which only reveal their true content, their true nature, in a high-quality presentation.
In the long run, the Blu-ray format may be doomed — relish it while you can.
