Weekly Blu-ray Releases Suddenly Not Inconsiderable

One of the complaints often sounded by Blu-ray proponents (and would-be supporters) is that there’s still not quite enough content being issued on a regular basis to justify the expense of buying a Blu-ray player and suitable discs—especially with both types of products still noticeably more costly than their standard DVD counterparts.

A second gripe often seen in blogs and other postings is that Blu-ray has a long way to go to catch up with DVD in issuing older titles (including the classics), sometimes referred to as “catalog” titles. Yet a check of what’s being issued in the next several days (a time frame not seeing any more Blu-ray releases than usual) shows a rather broad range of Blu-ray titles popping up.

Judge for yourself from this unofficial (and possibly incomplete) listing of more than two dozen Blu-ray titles being released between the eight days of March 3–10:

“Wonder Woman”
“Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic”
“Beverly Hills Chihuahua”
“NFL Super Bowl XLIII”
“Brokeback Mountain”
“In the Electric Mist”
“Paramore Live, the Final Riot!”
“Stargate: The Ark of Truth /Continuum”
“La Vie en Rose”
“Oh Happy Day: Sunday Morning Music”
“HD Moods Fire”
“The Silence of the Lambs”
“I’ve Loved You So Long”
“Pinocchio (70th Anniversary Platinum Edition)
“Transporter 3”
“Batman: The Motion Picture Anthology”
