Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen

 

Buy Now and Price - Unlisted

 

Whilst the quality of the movie itself is debatable, as far as robots and explosions go, in addition to robots exploding in slow motion, this film has no equal. The video and audio transfers are amongst the cream of releases yet pressed to a Blu-ray disc and with the extra features as produced by renowned DVD producer Charlie de Lauzarika, Transformers 2 is almost the perfect Blu-ray release.

I dare say that this will be under many Christmas trees this year, including mine which is a gift for my uncle Peter (just don't tell him that).

 


Sony PlayTV

 

Buy Now and Price - £69.45 on PriceGrabber UK

 

In the home entertainment realm, the must have device for Australian and European readers is the PlayTV device for PlayStation 3. The PS3 console has improved by leaps and bounds in two and a half years, both in capabilities and quality of games. And the latest feature in its bag of tricks; a digital recorder for free to air standard and high definition TV signals is a boon for owners.

For just $169 AUD, PlayTV expands the abilities of the PlayStation far beyond the notions of a video game console. Now the console is truly the hub of the lounge room. A more specialized product than what game retailers generally provide.
