Blu-ray has already been on the market for five years, but there are only 3,000 Blu-ray titles available for consumers to purchase. This is compared with the light-speed rise of DVDs, which had over 20,000 titles available after the DVD format had been around for the same amount of time. These numbers for Blu-ray titles are due for a change and with the price of decks coming down to a nice $69 this coming black Friday, more people will be demanding more titles.
As far as what is available, there are many really great movies around which have been produced in Blu-ray versions, including “The Sound of Music,” “Gone With the Wind,” and all the “Back to the Future” movies, there are some striking gaps in the collection.
These are the five top films which are still not yet available on Blu-ray format but have been requested by fans:
- Star Wars, parts 4, 5 and 6
- The Lord of the Rings, extended versions
- Star Wars, parts 1, 2 and 3 (requested less often than the more popular, and better films, 4-6)
- Indian Jones original trilogy. (The latest movie ‘Crystal Skull’ is on Blu-ray already.)
- Finding Nemo
