Top 10 Blu-ray movies / Best looking Blu-ray movies

The ten Blu-ray movies that every videophile must own

So, you’ve finally splurged out on that brand-spanking HD home theatre to wow your friends with – along with any strangers who happen to pass by your house window. (Try not to stare as they press their noses forlornly to the glass: you’ll only be encouraging them.)

The next step on your road to high-def glory is to stock up on some Blu-ray movies. After all, a home theatre system is only as impressive as the discs you throw at it. (Note: we don’t mean in a Frisbee like manner. That would just be impractical.) Like a supermodel splayed gratuitously over a sports car, a good Blu-ray movie lends an essential decorative air to your hardware. In some ways, it’s the most important purchase of all.

While all Blu-ray movies share identical 1080p video resolution; some discs are ‘more equal’ than others. Indeed, certain earlier releases barely look any better than a standard-def DVD (Total Recall, we’re looking at you.) A true videophile needs to pick his discs wisely.

In the following slideshow, we take a look at some of the best looking Blu-ray movies currently troubling store shelves. We’ve tried to include films that not only look fantastic, but are also entertaining in their own right. (It’s not all about the eye candy – otherwise you could just watch Transformers 2 on a loop, forever.)

To make life easier, we’ve also included links to where you can buy each disc online, plus the original theatrical trailers. Truly we are the caliphs of audiovisual dissemination.

    Man I agree with the other two comments. I hate when websites do this goofy ass shit.

    Must agree with the guy below - why can't you have these lists on ONE page? I refuse to read "lists" like these anymore. It really is frustrating having to go through 20 pages loading to read a list of 10 items that could easily all fit on one page or at least 5 to a page.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
