Now with 4k televisions coming out, this would be great to re-release this in 4k.

It would also be great demo material for the tv manufacturers!
Current Setup:
Mitsubishi WD60C9 DLP TV
Onkyo TX-NR609
Playstation 3 250GB
Verizon FIOS TV
Verizon QIP7216 HD/PVR

Warning: I'm one of those guys that comedians make fun of. I just like shiny objects. I don't care about aspect ratios, Hz, slight artifacts, surround sound, etc.

This Blu-ray is freaking amazing as eye candy. The beginning was so clean and colorful, we were actually laughing. Some of shots looked like CGI.

Is Baraka better? I think so. But if you liked Baraka, you can pick this up and won't be disappointed. Just please, and I beg you, please don't watch the Samsara extras. The pretentious attitude is so thick, it ruined the movie when I watched it again. And unlike Baraka, parts of Samsara seemed to drag a little in parts.

For detractors of Samsara, maybe I just got lucky with my current setup. And now that I know about newer technologies like interpolation and the "soap opera effect," I'm playing catch-up as fast as I can. I'd have to thank the entertaining flood of hate about The Hobbit for sending me down this technology rabbit hole.

What are you talking about? The extras of Samsara are fantastic and pretty much a must watch. I didn't have the slightest problem with anyone, and it's extremely informative and interesting.

So, please do yourself a favour and DO watch the bonus content on Samsara.

Blu:

Glad someone has a differing opinion. I did give a warning that I'm a type of guy that comedians make fun of. I probably should have also mentioned that I'm quite jaded.

As I work through more threads here, any thoughts on the Qatsi Trilogy? Worried because of the price.

The Qatsi trilogy is a bit more "pointed" than Baraka or Samsara. More time manipulation, some of the cutting is faster, some of the images more "action packed", and the score is more aggressive (I'm very fond of the score so I do not intend this as a criticism). If you like Baraka/Samsara I'm sure you'd like the first two Qatsis; most people (myself included) do not care for Naqoyqatsi (though the Philip Glass score is just as good as the other movies). As to the cost, this is the best time to buy the trilogy box, as the Barnes & Noble 50% off Criterion sale is in effect.
