The Avengers DVD and Blu-Ray Release This Week

I was having a look at the different version of Marvel's The Avengers that is being released this week and noticed there isn't the usual DVD/Blu-Ray/Blu-Ray 3D/Digital Copy release that has been available from the previous Thor and Captain America releases. I have had a look on Amazon and found what I was looking for (http://www.amazon.com/Marvels-The-Avengers-Four-Disc-Combo/dp/B001KVZ6HK/ref=pd_sim_mov_1/184-2017432-9772211) - does anyone know if there is the same regional coding for Blu-Rays as there is for DVD's and if so, does anyone know if there is going to be an Australian DVD/Blu-Ray/Blu-Ray 3D/Digital Copy release later on as happened with Transformers 3: Dark Side of the Moon?

Had a look at this site - not listed there yet - just would hate to buy the Blu-Ray/Blu-ray 3D/Digital Copy and find out the quad pack (so my sister can borrow the DVD version when she wants to as she does not buy many DVD's these days) with the DVD version (and the digital soundtrack with the Amazon copy)

You can get the DVD/Blu Ray combo. If you need the digital version just leech a copy off the net.

I dont understand purchasing movies. Given the US$30 price you quote compared to renting from store on $1 tue or buy on a deal for a few bucks. Worst case scenario, new release @ $6.95. I would only watch it once on DVD having already seen it @ the movies and again maybe a months later if a mate or somebody hadnt seen it n wanted to watch it with me. So thats less than half the price of buying it new @ 2x new release price. Unless you wanna own it so you can watch it multiple times i dont see the appeal in buying movies.

Whats the appeal?
Having an awesome library collection?
Having access to it whenever you wanna watch it (no renting or DLing required?)
Im interested to know.

People like to collect stuff? You're telling me you don't have some weird collection of crap.

I'm personally with you on the whole buying dvd thing but I each their own.

I've benefited from going over someones place and having a huge dvd collection made killing a few hours easy.

I like having the movies (and TV series depending if they are my favorites) to watch when I have had a bad week and just want to watch a couple favorite movies. I am fairly picky in what I buy and will buy digitial when I want the movie but don't think the DVD/Blu-Ray is worth it. But not everything is available through services such as iTunes while just about everything has been released on either DVD or Blu-Ray.

The addictive properties of collection hey, i can understand that.

As a kid it was fucking military models. Loved making that shit.

During my late high school pyro stage i amassed a huge collection of the shit i had made/blown up/set alight that still sits in a display cupboard amongst my models in my old room @ my parents place.

Now days i try to test every new game im remotely interested in thats available on PC. 90% of them are torrented first and then bought at a later date if i enjoy it enough and play for more than say 60mins. Probably less than 10% make the purchase required grade.

I dont see the appeal in watching favourite movies over and over though. The only time i have watched a movie more than say 3 times is when ive enjoyed it and have watched it multiple times with different people who hadnt seen it before. I just find rewatching most movies pretty boring once you've seen them as you know whats gunna happen and when. About the only time ill enjoy rewatching a movie is when i havent seen it for a few years and have a faded memory of it. Eg - Saw Dirty Harry and the original Nightmare on Elm Street both for the 2nd time a few weeks ago after. First watched Dirty Harry probably 10yrs ago and Nightmare on Elm a little less than 10yrs. Remembered most of both movies but it was still good seeing both again. GF on the other hand forgets most of what happens in movies after a few months so seeing them again is a new experience for her.

DD, same can be said for cds. I still buy CDs all the time as i love having a physical copy of the album. I also try to meet a lot of the bands that tour Australia and I can get those albums signed by the band members.

CDs i understand as you listen to songs over and over via whatever audio device you use. And as you said, you have use for the physical copy to get signatures, rather than just DLing digital tunes.
