Does anyone else do Blu-ray?

I bought a Blu-ray player a year or so ago, specifically because I wanted to see the restored version of How the West Was Won. (It was worth it.) Of the thousands of titles released on Blu-ray, I'm finding relatively few that I want to own. It seems they're not marketing to the old fogey set. Among the films I have now:

The African Queen
Apollo 13
The Bridge on the River Kwai
Charade
Close Encounters of the Third Kind
Cool Hand Luke
Fly Away Home
For a Few Dollars More
Gettysburg
North By Northwest
Rio Bravo
The Shawshank Redemption
T-2: Judgement Day
(Not a complete list.)

Anybody else? What Blu-ray disks do you have?

you definately want to see Solaris and The Double Life of Veronique.

stop buying them. it is better to use a dvd by mail netflix type service.

i do think the quality is better when it's going digital to digital rather than film to digital. i have the star wars trilogy, casino royale, dances with wolves. just a few movies that i bother with owning and a few more given as gifts.
Paths of Glory looks interesting, and they have Godzilla! Thanks for the link.

I have a dial-up connection, so Netflix isn't a viable option. Still living in the Stone Age I guess. I only buy movies I know I'll be watching more than once anyway.

What am I missing? With movies, I thought it all originates on film.
