Hangover Cure: 14 Great Blu-Ray Movies To Get You Through the Day!

Hungover? Tired? Bored? Here's a great way to get through New Years Day without resorting to watching bad football or toffee-nosed Mummers. Blu-Ray can see you through, and we've got the goods for you!

A lot of Blu-Ray players showed up under the tree this holiday season, as prices dropped close to the magical $99 range. But now that you've got a new Blu-Ray player, what should you watch? We picked the the 14 best Blu-Ray movies released in 2009, to give you an idea of what you could be watching!

If you are new to Blu-Ray, not all movies released look and sound great. Some are just lame ports of DVDs without much to enhance them or make them better. But there are lots of great movies, new and old, that have been lovingly transferred to Blu-Ray. Our list, compiled by the HD experts at HD Nation is a good place to start.

Here are five of them - to see the whole list, watch the video below!

  1. Iron Man: Yes, it's a great movie, and it looks awesome on the big screen in your living room!
  2. Up: Great sounding movie, and Doug's special mission is, well, special.
  3. Star Trek: The movie was good, the Blu-Ray is even better!
  4. Wizard of Oz: Yes, the classic movie really can look better than ever! It will be either joyous rapture or it'll have your kids screaming from the room when the flying monkeys arrive!
  5. 3 Days of the Condor: See Robert Redford in his prime in this '70s era thriller. It stands up well, looks great, and the mono-sound track has been remastered. Awesome!
