If you saw these films at the theater, you would notice the same things.

Hmm, maybe I wasn't being attentive enough, because I guess technically theaters are beyond 1080p. So I definitely misspoke. But still, do you think that maybe we can see more detail on our HDTV's because the screen is smaller and isn't stretched as much, and we're sitting closer? Or has I been proven we see more in theaters with the high resolution and all? Because I don't at all remember seeing the obvious CG and such while watching the Star Wars prequel trilogy. However, even Revenge of the Sith was six years ago... Maybe my multiple viewings of the DVD's of such movies has made me forget what the theatrical version looked like. Hmm...

Thank you! I was worried blu-ray wouldn't look better than DVD on my 37" 1080p tv because some on the internet have said blu-ray only is good 46"+ displays. Thanks for clarifying this.

So based on the tv chart and the 1080p, is 6-7 feet away from a 32" tv ok?

Default 2D TV + 3D Blu-ray = 3D TV

Hi all, please bare with me I am new here. Thanks

Good day guys, I have a 39inch 100hz, Samsung LED TV (2D) and a Samsung 3D Blu-ray player.
Is there a way I can watch 3D on my TV with the Blu-ray player, or do I need to go out and buy a 3DTV.

Thank you very much

You will need to buy a 3DTV and Blu-ray 3D disc movies in order to watch 3D at your home.

Hi guys,new member here,I'm 18,and for a while now,I've been thinking about starting a Bluray collection.I love movies,I respect the art form,and I love having some sort of a physical manifestation of that love of mine.

But to go into some detail as to why I'm asking this.I live in Serbia,and as an 18 year old student of a culinary academy,I don't earn a whole lot yet,so taking a piece of my earnings to fund my hobby is considered quite a bit of money for me.
So taking this into consideration,I would love it if you could give me your opinion on the question in the title.I mean,I'm not gonna lie,I download movies off the internet,but I wonder if any one of them are able to emulate the quality of a Bluray movie.
What made me wonder about this is a copy of ''Prisoners'' I downloaded,great movie,it was about 2,5GB ,and goddamn,it had some seriously good picture quality.But I have to wonder,Bluray discs are 50GB no? So I mean there must be a whole lot more quality in them,plus the 2,5GB movie would be compressed right?


TL;DR: Considering I don't have a whole lot of room for throwin' money,are Blurays a high enough quality,that cannot be reached by ~5GB torrented movies,to be worth the investment?

Also,keep in mind that I have NEVER watched a single Bluray movie,so perhaps the quality from the movies I torrent,even though exelent,may not be even close to the Blurays.

Guys thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read this and I really do appreciate any answer that you may give me,I really hope that there is a striking difference so that I could really have a drive to get the collection going.

Thank you again and have a great day.

Firstly, this probably isn't the best place to describe your on-line activities in such detail!

But at the moment you can't beat Blu-rays (with a few exceptions) for the price. A compressed copy will be just that, you'll lose out on video and sound detail and possibly resolution too. If you can afford to get a player then you can enjoy BDs on a budget, you just have to wait for titles to go on sale and have a bit of patience. A good physical library of movies is a nice thing to have and many members enjoy collecting.

If you get the opportunity try and watch some PIXAR movies or big blockbusters on a friends Blu-ray player on a decent sized HDTV with a surround sound system and you'll be blown away.
