    I'm trying to talk her into getting a PS3 along with it as a blu-ray player but she doesn't want to because she thinks I'll just play more video games....(I hate it when my purchase suggestions break down over things like that becase she's 100% right....)
    That was my reason for getting a PS3.
    Ask me about My Jesus and how to have a relationship with Him.

              I might get killed for this, but the only time I can tell the difference between a BR and a DVD played on the BR player, is when I'm watching anything animated.

                You haven't watched it on the right tv.

                  I can't wait for Star Wars. I hope the Beatles films get the Blu (meanie) Ray treatment.

                    most people can't.

                      Do the older movies really look that much better on Blu Ray?

                        depends on the movie. i could tell with Top Gun, but a more recent movie, Independence Day was converted over poorly.

                        that's really what it boils down to. the conversion.

                          For a TV show to TRULY be Hi Def it needs to be shot, broadcast, recieved and (obviously) viewed in HD. Same with Blu Ray, all older movies are "upconverted" so as RB says it all depends on the conversion.

                            That's not entirely accurate -- theatrical movies have almost always been shot on analog film where the grain size is finer than even blu-ray. Those old black and white reels contain enough resolution information to exceed even blu-ray. It's not an "upconversion."

                            But it is true that it all comes down to the quality of the conversion. If somebody just takes an existing DVD print and makes a blu-ray, it won't be better. But if they re-master from the original film, blu-ray can be breathtakingly better.

                            The Sound of Music is a good example of this. Anybody that can't see the difference there may as well get a seeing eye dog.

                              My wife loves "The Sound of Music". Where would I find it on Blue Ray?

                                You could get on Amazon, just make sure you get this new 45th Anniversary edition that came out in November:

                                http://www.amazon.com/Sound-Three-Di...5966335&sr=1-1

                                It has the "3 disc" version, which means you also get a DVD copy in the package (handy for car or the bedroom or kids room or something).

                                They probably have it at Wal-Mart -- that's where I got mine.
