While many of you may have gone HD a while ago, I was content with my old, boxy TV for years. But thanks to a great Black Friday deal, I finally decided to upgrade. However, since I've never owned an HDTV before, I know that my TV upgrade saga isn't over.
There are a few things that I'll be buying to round out my viewing pleasure. While I'm not going for the ultimate home theater experience, I do have some necessities, including the ability to stream and watch content from my computer and keep everything hassle-free. Are you a new HDTV owner as well? Read my list of essentials after the break.
Start chillin' your Pepsi Free's and practicing your guitar licks, cause the Back to the Future trilogy on Blu-ray hits stores today! Coming with all three installments (along with digital copies for your mobile devices), the BTTF 25th anniversary edition comes packed with hours of behind the scenes footage, deleted scenes, and documentaries so you can get a closer look at the making of everyone's favorite time travel trilogy.
I got a chance to check out the Blu-ray pack for myself and was truly amazed at the film quality — the flicks have all been remastered for HD viewing and look better than when they were first released in theaters in 1985. Couple this with the announcement that the Back to the Future game is hitting your Mac, PC, and PS3 beginning next month, well it's going to be a very heavy holiday, indeed.
Where can you get the goods? Find out more (including what other big-name star auditioned to be Marty McFly) after the break.
The Blu-Ray section in your home entertainment center is about to get crowded — not only can we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Back to the Future ($50) and The Goonies ($35) with a Blu-Ray re-release this year (October and November respectively),
but George Lucas announced over the weekend at the Celebration V Star Wars Convention that he would be releasing the entire six episode collection of Star Wars on Blu-Ray in 2011.
I don't have to tell you how stoked I am at all three of these developments, and there's no way I could choose just one to buy. But let's say you could only pick one to purchase — would you rather buy the Star Wars collection, The Goonies, or the Back to the Future trilogy on Blu-ray?
