99% of that list is bullshit.

I've only had one single problem with a firmware update and I have hundreds of blurays. Even then all I had to do was turn off the internet on my player and it worked fine. The menu thing is a industry wide thing, its not like they're still making wacky cool menus for the DVDs but giving blurays bland menus. 99% of Blurays come in the standard case with the standard clicker thing, only a few box sets use different packaging. As far as big packaging goes, that's a personal problem, if you don't want a gigantic godzilla book, don't buy it. Special features are ehhhhh because they release most of that stuff online now and I don't care about that shit anyways so I can't really comment on it. Lastly, I've stopped a bluray and put it back in years later and I still got the pop up thing that says "would you like to continue where you left off?" so he clearly just doesn't know what he's doing.

"The only thing bluray really has going for it is the picture quality"

Well no shit. I know picture quality doesn't really matter for the 1930s horror movies that James watches, but if I want to watch Blade Runner 2049, I want it to be in HD.

I only got far enough to hear him say "Streaming is king" and then shut it off. There's a reason I removed this guy from my recommendations a while ago.

The only thing that could be agreed upon would be the interactive sections, but other than that it's all bullshit.

Video and movie streaming is some of the best things to happen to the hobby, that's why you see every thrift store and flea market clogged up with the junk.

I think the ability for a Blu-Ray to resume where you left off has to be specifically programmed in, whereas it just worked by default with DVD. I've experienced what he's talking about with older Blu-Rays, but I think all the newer ones will remember where you left off.

And the picture quality improvement actually is noticeably better even for 1930s movies. Even with standard definition material, the Blu-Ray standard supports better compression codecs.

Physical media is trash.

Digital is where it's at. No physical space required (outside of hard drives) and no swapping discs.

Not to mention studios 1984ing the films because they're not up with the current political zeitgeist, like this scene from Toy Story 2

Let's be real: it was the anniversary game that Sonic deserved. A celebration of everything that makes the series what it is. Unbridled autism, failure and incompetence.

I love him having one of the reasons as "I don't like the name". He shows he did no research, cuz he whines that the name is wrong, cuz the disc ain't blue. Blu-ray gets its name from the blue laser that is used to read the discs. That info is on the Wikipedia page, does Jame's ancient PC only allow him to check IRC chats or BBS's?
