• High-Def Holidays: Fall into Blu

    Posted Wed Sep 5, 2012 at 01:30 PM PDT by Dick Ward

    The summer is over and that means it’s time to go back to school. Or at least it used to be. For most of us, the end of summer just means that we’ll continue going to work every day, but we won’t have to stare longingly out our windows wishing we were outside. It’s actually a pretty nice feeling. “High-Def Holidays” is a celebration of that and all the other strange and wonderful things that September brings us.

    It's been a busy month for Blu-ray. Thanks to Dolby's new encoding tech, Blu-ray sound is going to be improving to levels higher than it already is. In the world of videogames, May seems to be the month of delay announcements. Still, there's plenty of goodness to come from the month before E3. You can bet, though, that the next few weeks are gonna be huge. That all being said, here's the biggest of the big new in Blu-ray, gear, and gaming.

    There's been plenty happening over the last month – so much that even we have a bit of trouble keeping up with it all.  While March may not have had the biggest Blu-ray or videogame releases, it did play host to some significant reveals in both movies and gaming.

  • Beyond the Blu: March 2012

    Posted Tue Mar 6, 2012 at 12:30 PM PST by Dick Ward

    There's a line that separates fans from fanatics.  Movie fans already have the Blu-rays of their favorite flicks pre-ordered and are ready to watch them as soon as they come in.  Fanatics need more.

  • High-Def Holidays - Blu-ware the Ides of March

    Posted Fri Mar 2, 2012 at 10:30 AM PST by Dick Ward

    March is a month that tends to be associated with green beer, melting snow, and regular colored beer.  It's a beer heavy month, but light on traditional holidays.  Luckily, we've got plenty of non-traditional holidays to celebrate and some crazy good Blu-rays to go along with them.

    The leap year really helped February out.  What will probably be the biggest Blu-ray release of the year was announced on the 29th, earning February a place in history.  Were it a normal year, those honors would have gone to March.  We've got that announcement and plenty of other news from last month here in the High-Def Digest-Digest.  And yes, I do labor under the assumption that months fight against one another to be the coolest.

    So it's February. It's a month full of holidays and Blu-rays to celebrate them with, but there's one day we're not going to worry about in this list. If you're looking for something to cuddle up in front of with your significant other, this one isn't for you. This list is for the rest of the holidays - the strange and underappreciated ones that get overlooked in favor of chocolates and flowers. Nothing against chocolates, mind you.

    January has been a crazy busy month.  The first week was all about recovering from New Year's and Christmas celebrations, and right when it was time to get things back on track, in comes CES.  After CES, of course, comes another week of recovery.  If your January was anything like ours, you probably had a difficult time keeping up with the big news.  Lucky for you, we've gathered up all the really juicy bits and compiled them for you in the High-Def Digest-Digest.

    Sure, the normal fans can get the special edition Blu-ray and call it a day, but some of us are cut from a more obsessive cloth. We don't just want the movie and the commentary and the special features. We want even more.

  • High-Def Holidays: Ringing in the Blu-Year!

    Posted Wed Jan 4, 2012 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

    It's January and all the holiday hubbub is over.  Well, the major, well recognized mainstream holidays are over anyway.  Me, I'm sort of a holiday hipster.  I was into Talk Like a Pirate Day before it was cool and I dug National Catfish Month before the corporations ruined it.  So let's talk about these obscure or strange holidays and the Blu-rays you can watch to celebrate them.

    Normally we'd give you a little bit of flak for not keeping up with the news, but at least you had a good reason.  The holidays can be crazy and the entire month of December seems like a blur in retrospect.  But now your guests are out of the house, you've recovered from your New Year's party, and it's time for life to return to normal.  That means you've got to get a handle on everything that went down last month - and there sure was a lot of it!

    Need help picking out a few movies for your Christmas marathon?  This isn't the list for you. We'll have that list of course, but this one's all about celebrating those holidays that slip under the radar. The weird ones celebrating things that just don't need celebrating.  The holidays that you didn't even knew existed.

  • High-Def Holidays: Remember, Remember the Blus of November

    Posted Thu Nov 3, 2011 at 11:50 AM PDT by Dick Ward

    It's November and that means it's time to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Turkeys and pilgrims and Indians and all that jazz.  Or if you're one of those people who watched 'V for Vendetta' and pretend they were familiar with the holiday before hand - Guy Fawkes Day.  It's also a time that the really exciting holidays get overlooked.  Just because no one else is celebrating them doesn't mean you can't, so check out our list and put on a Blu-ray or two to celebrate your favorite oddball holidays.
