The end of the world is better on Blu-ray

Paul and mine's Blu-ray collection. Don't worry, our DVD stash is even bigger.

Paul just happened to be glancing over at our Blu-ray collection earlier today, and there’s one thing he noticed: of the 17 films that we have on Blu-ray… 8 are about the end of the world. That’s right, currently 47% of our Blu-ray collection is dedicated to either apocalyptic or post-apocalyptic scenarios.

No wonder I ended up doing a YouTube Saturday last month about the end of the world. Well, apart from the fact that there was a whole load of Rapture nonsense going on.

Our high definition, 5.1 surround sound toting collection of end of the world fun contains:

Zombieland (2009)

Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991) (Skynet Edition)

Evangelion: 1.11 – You Are Not Alone (2007)

Watchmen (2009)

Independence Day (1996)

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (2005)

The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)

Knowing (2009)

And that’s just our Blu-rays that deal with the end of the world. Yet all of these films tend to be VFX and CGI/CG heavy, which brings me on to my next point: when you’re considering what genres to buy on Blu-ray (at the moment) you’re better off concentrating on purchasing films with lot of big effects going on. It just doesn’t seem like there’s much point in picking up comedies, rom-coms or even plain dramas in high-def yet.

Really, you don’t need to see Jefinner Aniston kissing anyone in high definition.
