Happy Monday, Everypeeps! Hopefully your weekend was totes awesome.

Today’s post is brought to you, in large part, by the Disney Movie Club.

Yes, I know those movie clubs are designed to ultimately screw you over… but I love Disney movies! And if I play things just right, I can average about $14 a movie, for 9 movies!

But that’s not what I’m writing about!

No, I’m just wondering, what’s up with Blu-Ray? I mean, I get that it’s great, gorgeous, lovely, and whatever.

But is it really worth it?

I’ll admit, while walking through Best Buy a while back, I caught a glimpse of Toy Story 3 playing on a super HD, 3D, gigantic TV. And I assume it was playing on Blu-Ray, because I could see the wrinkles in Mr. Potato Head. Like, whoa.

So I immediately wanted a new TV, of course. But I don’t have, or really need, a new TV. And was there ever really a moment when I thought to myself, GOSH, I sure wish I could see the wrinkles in Mr. Potato Head?

Or, for that matter, was I ever dissatisfied with the quality of DVDs before the advent of Blu-Ray?

Probably not.

So, when presented with an awesome deal from Disney’s Movie Club, do I opt for ye olde DVD format, or do I snag myself some Blu-Rays, which I can currently only play on my PS3 (because I’m not about to shell out $100+ for a Blu-Ray player)?

I get the appeal, but I think that I might notice the added detail while watching a Blu-Ray… but I doubt I’d miss it while watching a DVD. Sort of an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ thing. But I’m still a little on the fence.

What do you think? Are Blu-Rays awesome? Worth it? Just a temporary thing as we make our transition into all digital media? What’s the next big thing? Let me know in the comments below!
