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

The ten Blu-ray movies that every videophile must own

7. Tropic Thunder



The disc: When it comes to naming the best looking Blu-ray discs, comedies usually get ignored in favour of action and sci-fi. After all, who wants to see Jack Black’s pudgy face in 1080p when you could be watching high-def explosions instead? Fortunately, Tropic Thunder combines both these elements to ensure its place on our list. The 1080p/AVC encoding is impeccable. From the hellish spray of napalm to the lush forest greenery, everything in the movie pops off the screen. More importantly, it'll make your friends laugh as it impresses them.

The film:Tropic Thunder is a rip-roaring comedy adventure starring some of the best comedians working today. If you’ve ever seen The Three Amigos, you’ll have a good idea of how the plot unfolds: three spoilt Hollywood actors set out into the jungle to make a ‘Nam movie – only to stumble into a real-life conflict which they assume is all part of the movie. The film lampoons Hollywood mercilessly, with Robert Downey Jr.’s turn as a pretentious method auteur being a hilarious standout.

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

    No thanks

    LOL my thoughts exactly. Waste of time.

    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

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.
