Most Spectacular Blu-rays (That I've Seen)

Avatar (2009)


Avatar is the mother of all demo disks, hands down. On Blu-ray, the transfer is simply without a fault - the detail, clarity, sharpness, contrast...everything is sublime. This is to be expected from a natively digital title, of course, but it's fortunate nothing was sacrificed in bringing the title to home video.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)


Oh my God, this disc is freaking revelatory. I've seen good transfers before, but the video quality here is beyond amazing. It's astonishingly detailed, clear, crisp and sharp - nothing here can be faulted. No matter what your thoughts on this polarising movie are, nobody can deny that this transfer is flawless.

Mary and Max (2009)


Animation movies look naturally stunning on Blu-ray, and Mary and Max is no exception. This transfer is phenomenal. It was shot frame-by-frame on high quality still cameras, so there's no grain or any imperfections at all. I cannot overstate how great this transfer is. If you're a fan of Mary and Max, you MUST buy the Blu-ray.

Shoot 'Em Up (2007)


Holy mother of God, Shoot 'Em Up was made for the high definition format. It looks absolutely stunning from top to bottom. Detail, clarity, sharpness and colours are all faultless. A slight layer of grain covers the image, but that's because of the source. The picture was shot on film, so grain is inherent, and it's not distracting at all. Plus there are no film artifacts or compression artifacts... This is a superb transfer. Add to this an equally stunning audio track, and Shoot 'Em Up is a must-own.

Sin City (2005)


I feel like finding everyone involved in this transfer and giving them all a huge wet sloppy kiss and a hug. Sin City is jaw-dropping on Blu-ray. There is not much else to say.

WALL·E (2008)


It's a given that computer animated titles will look good on Blu-ray. They were made digitally, after all. Thus, WALL-E looks stunning on a high definition television.

Toy Story 3 (2010)


Once again, Disney have supplied a first-rate transfer. There is not a single fault to be found.

Collateral (2004)


Like a few other releases, Collateral has come to Blu-ray equipped with its inherent grain structure, but that is where all the fine detail lies. I was stunned by this transfer. Michael Mann is a director with an eye for detail, and his releases are simply ideal demo discs.

King Kong (2005)


The King Kong Blu-ray comes with both the theatrical and extended versions on one disc, but the video quality was not sacrificed in any way, shape or form. King Kong is a succulent visual feast with lots of huge special effects, so the high definition upgrade makes a lot of sense.
PvtCaboose91's rating:

There are a number of films which simply do not benefit from a high def upgrade. However, there are films which were made for the Blu-ray format, and their transfers are absolute revelations. These Blu-ray discs absolutely blew my mind.

Please note I've only included the Blu-rays discs I've seen, because, well, how can my mind be blown if I haven't seen it? So I'm not exactly looking for suggestions... This is just a list of the most spectacular Blu-ray titles I've seen :)

In no particular order. Suffice it to say, transfers for each get an easy 10/10
