7. Tropic Thunder

The disc: When it comes to naming the best looking Blu-ray discs, comedies usually get ignored in favour of action and sci-fi. After all, who wants to see Jack Black’s pudgy face in 1080p when you could be watching high-def explosions instead? Fortunately, Tropic Thunder combines both these elements to ensure its place on our list. The 1080p/AVC encoding is impeccable. From the hellish spray of napalm to the lush forest greenery, everything in the movie pops off the screen. More importantly, it'll make your friends laugh as it impresses them.

The film:Tropic Thunder is a rip-roaring comedy adventure starring some of the best comedians working today. If you’ve ever seen The Three Amigos, you’ll have a good idea of how the plot unfolds: three spoilt Hollywood actors set out into the jungle to make a ‘Nam movie – only to stumble into a real-life conflict which they assume is all part of the movie. The film lampoons Hollywood mercilessly, with Robert Downey Jr.’s turn as a pretentious method auteur being a hilarious standout.
