Australian Blu-ray Releases For This Week for August 4, 2008

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Aug 4, 2008 5:54 am

It's a brand new week and as we normally do, let's take a look at the Blu-ray awesomeness (or non-awesomeness as the case may be) that will be coming our way this week:

 

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment:

 

Juno

 

Stargate: Continuum

 

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment:

 

Reservoir Dogs

 

StarShip Troopers 3: Marauder

 

Vantage Point

 

Young Guns

 

Roadshow Home Entertainment:

 

Semi-Pro

 

Probably the pick of the week would be Reservoir Dogs. It's slightly overrated but worthy of a purchase in my books.

 

Until next week...

Australian Blu-ray Releases For This Week for July 27, 2008

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Jul 27, 2008 11:42 pm

You may have noticed the lack of Blu-ray release updates last week. There was of course a reason for this. There were no new Blu-ray releases last week. Fortunately though, that will probably be the last week for the year where there are no new releases.

 

So, as we normally do, let's take a look at the Blu-ray awesomeness (or non-awesomeness as the case may be) that will be coming our way this week:

 

Sony BMG:

 

Where The Light Is - John Mayer Live In Los Angeles

 

Toto: Live In Amsterdam

 

Paramount Home Entertainment:

 

Cloverfield

 

No Country For Old Men

 

The Spiderwick Chronicles

 

Not a bad little batch. Cloverfield is definitely worth a watch, and works better on a small screen that it did in the cinemas.

 

Until next week...

This Weeks Blu-ray Releases 1215997861

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Jul 14, 2008 1:11 am

Let's take a look at the Blu-ray awesomeness (or non-awesomeness as the case may be) that will be coming our way this week:

 

Beyond Home Entertainment:

 

Digital Video Essentials: HD Basics

 

The bad news is there are no new movies due out this week. However, the good news is that you can purchase Digital Video Essentials, and get your display up to scratch for the huge array of Blu-rays due out in the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2008!

 

I've requested a copy of Digital Video Essentials for review on TweakTown, so hopefully that will arrive soon.

 

Until next week...

Sony DADC To Begin Blu-ray Manufacturing In Sydney

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Jul 13, 2008 6:34 am

 

On Tuesday at a Blu-ray Disc Association conference in Beijing, it was announced that the Sony DADC disc replication facility in Sydney would be recieving a substantial floorspace expansion, which will enable the facility to manufacture Blu-ray discs. The production aim will be set at 1,000,000 units per month by February next 2009. Sony DADC Sydney have replicated DVD discs from the earliest stages of the format in 1998.

 

This will lighten the load on loaded Blu-ray manufacturing lines worldwide which have reached stretching point, leading to staggered release dates and limited numbers.

This Weeks Blu-ray Releases 1215413231

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Jul 7, 2008 6:47 am

Let's take a look at the Blu-ray awesomeness (or non-awesomeness as the case may be) that will be coming our way this week:

 

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment:

 

Rambo

 

Dragon Wars

 

I am intrigued to see just how bad Dragon Wars is, and mildly interested in seeing how old Stallone looks these days. Other than that, its slim pickings.

First Set-Top Blu-ray Recorder Hits Australia

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Jun 11, 2008 11:11 am

Now that my Computex spanning embargo has lifted; back to some Blu-ray news!

 

Panasonic have announced that Australian stores should now have in stock the DMR-BW500. Uninspiring model number I know.
What is inspiring, however, is that this marks the first Blu-ray recorder to be released outside of Japan. Even better is the price: $2,299 AUD. A lot of money to be sure, but lower than the first DVD recorder to hit the Australian market in late 2000; they started at $6,499!

 

I have been hassling Panasonic for a review unit for a TweakTown first look, but so far unsuccessful. Of course, persistence is a trait of mine...

 

For now, take a gander at this mechanical beastie.
