TweakTown's Digital Lounge Blu-ray Awards 2008

Rewarding those whom have rewarded us.

| Editorials in HT & Movies | Posted: Dec 30, 2008 5:00 am

I trust that everyone is enjoying the revamped Digital Lounge, where I have been reviewing Blu-ray movies and hosting the Blu-ray release schedule since the start of the year.

 

Over that time, we've seen some pretty major changes; the growth of the format and the multitude of releases, both catalogue and new. And let's not forget the spectacular demise of Toshiba's HD-DVD format, which paved the way for mainstream success.

 

I thought it would be an apt time to take a look at the best of the best, the Blu-ray releases for 2008 which have stood above the rest. So join me in rounding up the winners (and runners up) in the first annual TweakTown Blu-ray awards!
