BD-Java's Liar's Dice in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

There are only very few mass produced consumer products that can lay claim to being true works of art, and Disney's two new entries to the Blu-ray arena, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, may represent the best that high-definition discs today can offer, and as such can be said to have crossed the line into true art.

The care and love that went into the production of these discs are lovingly apparent in the beautifully rendered cover art and outer cardboard sleeve. It may be mere marketing fluff, but the inclusion of cardboard sleeves, and the use of artwork on the disc itself (which Sony in particular seems to have eschewed for its blu-ray offerings), give some weight and majesty to the actual product, kindling in the user a sense of heightened anticipation.

Each title is composed of two discs. A BD-50 disc that contains the movie itself and a BD-25 disc that contains all the extras. That's 75 GB of pure entertainment folks! :-)
