I wonder, if WWE stopped making DVDs and went exclusively with BR, would stores like Walmart and Kmart carry those BR or would they just not carry any WWE releases?
Blu-Ray seems like a more logical choice here. More content, less waste. Too bad it’s almost impossible to find WWE blu-rays at the major retailers. But, I am looking forward to this release.
TO THIS ATTITUDE ERA GUY WHOEVER HE IS DON’T BASH THE KING’S DVD. IT’S OBIVOUS TO ME THAT YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT.
Chill or be banned.
Disc 1 is that length of time – fact, nothing to argue over – and that’s all he “bashed”.
Chill or be banned? Really? The guy got carried away, yes, but threatening with the death penalty is a bit stiff, no?
I hope blu ray comes to an end like hd dvd did back in the late 2000’s
God DVD was just like blu ray when it first came out and still some of the
same but less the only people that can have blu ray is people who have hd
I think it will go away to be honest I think blu ray is made by dvd to.
just to clear up: HD dvd came to an end because of the higher quality on Bluray…and not because of standard DVD.
I hope, that, -if- it comes down to only 1 physical media to choose from over subscribing to and paying forever and ever to streaming services, then that media will be bluray, since especially with HD filmed material it is horrible to watch that on SD media..and there is much more space to fill with goodies..
Many releases even contain favorites of mine on those particulare releases, that are bluray exclusives, e.g. the 2 matches on ECW unreleased vol. 1, the Punjabi prison match on Batista’s, etc.
Can’t understand the hate for Blu ray. Considering all WWE content 2008 till now is HD why wouldn’t you want blu ray. Basic blu ray players are cheap now so I don’t get the complaining. I did buy WWE 50 on DVD because I found it for way cheaper than Blu ray and I already had the Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels on Blu ray and I didn’t give a crap about Big Show vs Mayweather.
sure, you’re LOUD enough!?!
I’m not really bashing the content, as I have not seen it, for obvious reasons.. what I really am bashing, to use your words, is the empty space on a dvd disc that could be filled with content, that Joe talked bout in his review, which then could ad to make the documentary on one of wrestling’s fine characters even more interesting, than it appears to be.
But yes, sure.. I would not know 100 % untill I really saw it.. although, experience from previous releases, + the great reviews I enjoy reading from the team in here, that are very close to how I experience the releases myself, are enough “evidence” for me, to conclude, that there IS indeed empty space on this release, that could have been filled.
I’m with you. I’ve been saying for some time that WWE just needs to drop the 3-discs and do 2-disc on both formats. They still get the same amount of time. Everything on this DVD would have fit on 2 discs. I just don’t see the need anymore. That way, if the DVD were 2 discs, you’d look at the Blu-ray and say, “Well, they’re both 2-discs, but this one HAS A LOT MORE ON IT.” There are those who believe that the 3-discs is better than 2, like the people who thought the black bars on widescreen movies cost them part of the movie when it was actually the other way around. 3-discs are just not needed anymore. Period. I’m with you. It’s a waste. Think how much WWE would save by eliminating one disc for every release. The stuff adds up. Hell, they wouldn’t even need to drop the price.
Can I bash the documentary?
with all the bashing -this- and bashing -that-, wwe better resurrect the GAB and Bash at the Beach events.. 😉
I heard the Basham Brothers are looking for work. I also heard WWE banned the Curb Stomp.
See what I did there?
hmm.. I get the part with the Basham Brothers…but…the Curb Stomp??!!?? me, being slow?? -lol-
It was a reference to being banned. See Mr. Bee’s comment. Sorry it went over your head you wrasslin’ fan you! 🙂
Disc 1: 1 hour 25 minutes!!! This has got to be the worst example of waste of dvd space since Rock vs. Cena DVD, disc 1.
1 hour more would not do any damage to the quality of pict and sound.
And that way, the missing parts in the documentary, that Joe Israel talked bout, would be integrated.
Another example of why bluray is much better than dvd, imo..
1 hour and 25 minutes? I think Sharknado 2 was longer than that lol
tell me, you did’nt just do THAT!?! -lol-
Don’t forget the first disc of The Streak DVD. Yeah… That was a waste too.
-lol- dammed myself for forgetting that one..or suppressed, I rather should say..
Really nice looking set.Can’t wait to check this out.
