Top 10 Blu-ray movies / Best looking Blu-ray movies

The ten Blu-ray movies that every videophile must own

8. 2001: A Space Odyssey



The disc Stanley Kubrick’s sprawling space saga has never looked better than it does on Blu-ray. For those weaned on the VHS or DVD editions, this 1080p/VC-1 transfer will come as a revelation – it’s like going from the Stone Age to the Space Age in one masterful jump-cut. Every trick in the trade has been used to make 2001: A Space Odyssey look the best it possibly can. Images are awash with hereunto unseen detail, while the vibrant colour palate is truly a feast for the eyes. In short; this is what Blu-ray was invented for.

The film 2001: A Space Odyssey is a timeless classic that demands to be watched and analysed over a lifetime. Originally released in 1968, the visual effects still hold up to this day. (Indeed, the space scenes look so plausible, that some people are convinced Kubrik helped 'fake' the 1969 moon landing!)

    WHY CANT YOU JUST MAKE A FUCKING LIST SO I CAN ONLY SCROLL DOWN DICKHEADS

    No thanks

    LOL my thoughts exactly. Waste of time.

    Man I agree with the other two comments. I hate when websites do this goofy ass shit.

  • FUOFF2

    Must agree with the guy below - why can't you have these lists on ONE page? I refuse to read "lists" like these anymore. It really is frustrating having to go through 20 pages loading to read a list of 10 items that could easily all fit on one page or at least 5 to a page.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
