One of the coolest movie posters I’ve seen in years comes from Captain America: The First Avenger. It’s a limited edition poster that harks back to the retro designs of posters from the past. Awesome stuff.

I’ve been collecting DVDs for a few years now and have moved on to Blu-rays. I’m still pretty amazed that the prices of blu-rays in Singapore are still very high. With new Blu-rays selling locally for about S$50 – S$60 and older ones about S$30 – S$40.

I’ve been getting my blu-rays from the US Amazon store for the past few years and the prices have been falling rapidly in the past year. With similar titles selling for about S$20 – S$30 each. Even Inception which was just released is selling for US$17.99 which is about S$27 here including shipping. Compare this with the $49.95 price of local blu-rays. Where would you choose to buy from?

Also, reports are that the locally made blu-rays may not be ripped or encoded with the same quality as the US versions, and they may not have the same extra features as the US version. I for one will continue to purchase from Amazon, I may have to wait a couple of weeks for the blu-rays to ship over, but it’s worth the savings and quality. Can’t wait for the titles (as in the pic above) I’ve ordered to reach me. :)
