Blu-ray is slowly phasing out DVDs as more and more people are getting into the HDTV bandwagon. Offering full HD goodness, Blu-rays offer a more pristine and better picture quality compared to DVDs – and trust me, once you’ve started watching Blu-rays, it just isn’t the same with DVDs. Blu-ray discs and players have become more affordable over time and you normally see them as a part of almost all home theatre setups. If you recently bought a shiny new big screen HDTV and are looking to impress your friends then check out these five Blu-ray movies that I feel offer the best picture quality to test your HDTV.

The most successful movie of all time is also one of the best Blu-rays I have tested. Each frame from the movie bleeds with superior image quality and since most of the movie was shot digitally, not a single amount of grain is present. Add to that a rocking soundtrack personally supervised by director James Cameron and you have the ultimate demo disc. Look out for the Special Collector’s Edition that contains three cuts of the movie.


  1. A Batman movie might be visually impressive but I’d never include a movie that almost requires you be a fan of an existing series. It’s like, ‘Here, watch this, but I hope you’ve already seen a bunch of other junk so you fully understand what you’re watching’.
