    Which first blu-ray disc to buy?

    I have just ordered the Sony BDP S360 Blu-ray player:

    Having never seen a blu-ray film before, which Blu-ray disc should I order to test out my new player? I was thinking of the Matrix triology, would this be a good first choice?

    didnt see it on HD-DVD wouldn't have thought there would be much difference between the two?

    oh and Wall-E is awesome on BD

    Does the blu ray player come with a HDMI cable?

    If you have not got one then best get one as if it is not connected by HDMI you wont notice any difference.

    I think most votes will go to BBC Planet Earth series or BBC life.

    ]This also might be of some help.

    good point it wont come with one in the box, i had a look last night play do a 1.5metre cable for five quid, will do the job :thumbsup:

    Planet Earth definitely

    I always thought the two latest Bond films looked good on Blu-ray also Apocalypto.

    Iron Man

    Thanks, some nice suggestions.

    The thing is, I already own Planet earth on DVD, surely it wouldn't be worth buying it on Blu-ray as well, would it?

    I was planning to get Wall-E on DVD a while go, so that seems to be the best choice. It's 10.98 on Amazon, so I may go for that.

    I already have a HDMI cable for my DVD player, so i probably just use that. Hopefully, it lets the blu-ray player show its full high-def glory....

    ...maybe I should try a non-animated film as well though...

    Thanks for suggestion, but Bond films tend to bore me to tears (I know, I'm odd). I have a look into Apocalypto...

    I was going to see Dark Knight at the IMAX, but never got around to it. So, maybe watching it on Blu-ray will be the next best thing...

    just got hancock for a fiver from gamestation and its looks superb in hd

    Batman Begins and Dark Knight.. .

    Wall-E

    Dark Knight

    Wall E is a good choice. For live action The Dark Knight great film, great picture, great sound and pretty good extras. Planet earth is also a great watch (Only 1080i though) but for really stunning visuals Baraka is about as good as it gets.

    Fantastic 4 Rise Of The Silver Surfer and Iron Man both look incredible on blu ray. Apocalypto as well.
