    Smile BR marathon

    So yesterday I went to blockbuster and sighed up for a thing for one week rent as many movies as you want 2 at a time. So starting tomorrow I am going to basically do a 2 day marathon. I want to get some good movies for anything weather it be for audio or picture or just a good movie. BR movies I have already seen on my system are:

    Eragon
    Dark Knight
    Xmen wolverine
    Angels and Demons
    Public Enemies
    No Reservations
    Terminator Salvation
    Harry Potter HBP
    Sky Caption and The World Of Tomorrow


    Looking for recommendations.

    Kill Bill 1 +2 (My favorites on BR), the new Star Trek is worth seeing...go with personal taste from there, but those are must sees as far as I'm concerned. If you are allowed to get mini-series, my one and only BR buy is Band of Brothers, a must see, must own. Have fun!

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?...GOT SUNFIRE? ...GOT Maggies?

    Is "Sky Caption and the World of Tomorrow" just a movie with subtitles in multiple hi-res languages?

    No, it is a pretty good movie I enjoyed it. I thought the same thing but it was much better than what I was thinking it would of been.

    Apparently the humor went amiss there.;)




    I would suggest...

    Not watching anything...and instead listening to music in 2 channel. It's much more enjoyable.;)

    Seriously though...no Blu-ray player here yet...so not much in the way of suggestions.

    Thats a pretty awesome deal, I did one of those earlier this summer

    Except instead of $9.99 for the 1 at a time plan, you can do $14.99 for a 2 at a time plan. I was renting 2 dvds, ripping them, and returning to Blockbuster within an hour. I cut my hand at work and had a week off for the stitches to heal. After my week was over I had rented over 60 movies and ripped them all to my external harddrive. Almost all new releases.
