You’ve just blown a grand (or close to it) on a Blu-ray player. Now what are you going to do? Go get Disney titles! Seriously though—the player isn’t all that exciting when it’s empty…
ComingSoon.net says that Buena Vista Home Entertainment just four HD titles for January. Here’s what I don’t get: Why do they go to the back of the Disney vault for the first of 2007?
OK—“Chicago” is a home theater demo favorite, as well as an Oscar winner. However, was “Casanova” or “The Guardian” at the top of people’s “must-see” lists? I guess if it’s one of the few Blu-ray titles you don’t have yet, it soon will be. Also, I think “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” might look cool in high-def, but it was sort of disappointing (sorry if you don’t agree).
The one good thing is that each of the releases are 50GB dual-layer discs, which should pack tons of bonus goodies.
Where is “The Little Mermaid?” “Kill Bill?” Pry open that vault, fellas. We want the good stuff.
- $34.99 each
- Titles available January 23, 2007
- 50GB, dual layer discs
