Quoted for truth.

Blu-ray players use a different laser than normal DVD players.
It'd be the equivalent of playing a LP in a CD player.
HD DVDs are also a totally different format than blu-ray. My grandfather bought a HD DVD player while I kept telling him that he should get a blu-ray instead. But, as always, noone ever listens to me. Now he's stuck with a HD DVD player he can't fully use since noone makes HD DVD movies anymore.

EDIT: Also..if Blu-ray movies could be played on normal DVD players..then there wouldn't be a need for normal DVD's anymore.

EDITx2: The funny thing about Blu-ray lasers is that..they're actually quite purple:

I know you won't get the same effect, just curious if it will play.
You can watch DVDs on a Blue ray player, but I'm pretty sure a blue ray will not play on a DVD player...

I just watched it tonight for the first time, My son and wife saw it in the theater, waited in line, and that turned out to be my reason that I bought a Camaro instead of a Challenger because my lovely wife and son wouldnt stop saying BumbleBee for days! I felt it was a funny,action packed,on your seat kinda movie, Well worth it.....Great Job, and money well spent to advertise the new Camaro!!!

With this one, it's like the "Jurassic Park" sequels. We've seen all the special effects before, so they really need better plot and dialogue to actually carry the story. The plot made little to no sense. They added new characters all over the place, including a bunch of "generic" Decepticons for the final battle, and tried to throw in a huge amount of back story that was left out of the first one. I also agree with the post above that the final battle was a bit anti- climatic. I don't want to sound like a dick because this movie wasn't Shakespeare, but you can have a blockbuster action film with a coherent plot. It's still a fun movie, but I think it could have been better, even though it's about giant robots. I've read that the writer's strike may have really screwed with the timing of this film in particular and I think that's probably true. Hopefully the third one will be better.
