If this is really the best of Blu-Ray for 2010 the format has no future.

I don't think this is a weak list, just heavy on films previously available on disc. Scott Pilgrim is the only film that came out in 2010. This list is all about awesome releases (vid, audio, extras) and these discs all excel there.

I guess making a truly epic blu-ray release is "easier" for older movies given the wealth of material they can draw from and lack of "after theatrical run" time constraint. Regardless, a nice list to add to the collection.

Hmmmm... I don't agree with including Grindhouse on that list-- no Blu-Ray with a DVD audio-track should be included in the best releases of the year, no matter how good the feature itself is. And I've heard that "it's supposed to sound bad" argument, and I don't buy it. You're still talking about taking the original audio and sound design and compressing it down to a 448 kbps Dolby Digital track. You might as well argue that they should have just put the movie in standard 480i resolution because it would look "crappier."

Drew is clearly some kind of Monopoly-esque tycoon who was paid off by Vivendi to put that on his list

Jables, Samurai Seven is one of the best FILMS to come out on Blu-ray, for sure, but it's FAR FAR FAR from the best disc, in terms of A/V quality. if you are to nominate a Kurosawa Blu-ray for 2010, it has to be ol' YOJIMBO. by far one of the best looking CC releases of the year, still it stuns me, and it's been out since March.

Drew's entitled to his opinion, even if some of you or us or them disagree. find me 2 people who think the top BLU-RAYS (not just films) were the exact same, and i'll wonder when they copied each other.
