New KidVid cases

Kidvids have a new look! They work the same as they always have: you still get one free per visit when you rent another video, but they're now in smaller, thinner, blue cases. These aren't Blu Ray discs-- our Blu Rays are still in tall cases with the large blue banner at the top-- they're the same KidVids they've always been, with the same orange KidVid sticker, but the cases look a bit different.

KidVid basics:

  • KidVids are normal DVDs (they are not Blu Ray discs)
  • One KidVid is free per visit with another rental
  • Only one KidVid is free: additional KidVids rented the same day are $2.00 each
  • Free KidVids are in blue cases with orange KidVid stickers on the front and side

DVD, Blu Ray, & 3DBlu Guide

DVD

Normal DVDs will
play in any standard
DVD or Blu Ray player.

Blu Ray

Blu Ray discs will not
play in a DVD player;
you must have a Blu Ray
player to play Blu Ray
discs.

Blu Ray + DVD

These dual-sided
discs are Blu Ray on
one side and normal
DVD on the other.

3D Blu Ray

3DBlu discs can only be
played on a 3D Blu Ray
player, connected to a
High Definition 3D TV by
an HDMI cable.

3d Blu + Blu Ray

These discs can be
played as normal Blu
Rays or 3D Blu Rays.

With the arrivals of Blu Ray & 3D Blu Ray, the new higher definition format of discs, finding the movie you want in the format you’re looking for has become slightly more challenging.  However, there’s no need to fear, as this guide should answer most common questions about the integration of new formats into our stock of new films.

The Basics:

There are a few simple ways to see if what formats are available, and to tell the difference between the different formats.  Behind any title we stock in Blu Ray, we’ll have a backer like the one in the picture to the left, indicating that we have both Blu Ray and DVD.

Though the physical discs look about the same, the cases have one major difference.  Let’s use Iron Man as an example.   All Blu Rays have a wide blue band running across the top of the case, with the Blu Ray logo in the center of it.  These discs will not play in a regular DVD player.  If you’re looking for a DVD copy and all you see at first is a Blu Ray, don’t fret too much.  We keep the Blu Rays in the front of the stack, with the DVDs behind.  Just take a peek behind the Blu Ray copies until you find a DVD copy (without the blue band across the top).

Advanced Browsing:

The addition of the new backers has made our “Recommended By” and “Reckless Recommends” backers a little more complicated, though not impossible to decipher with the help of this guide. 

The basic rule of thumb is that if the backer is blue, we stock the title on Blu Ray, and if the backer is violet, we stock the title on 3D Blu Ray.

A yellow backer with some of our faces on it means some of us recommend it, and it’s only available on DVD.  A blue backer with our faces on it again means that some of us recommend it and we have it on both Blu Ray and DVD, even though our faces took the place of the Blu Ray and DVD logos.

Same thing goes for the Reckless Recommends backers.  An orange backer with the star and “Reckless Recommends” means that we all recommend the title, but we only have it available on DVD.  Again, a blue backer with the same logo and text indicates that we all like the title and we have it on both Blu Ray and DVD.

Reckless Video Gift Cards

Reckless Video just changed the way you give movies as gifts: no more paper gift certificates, we now have Reckless Video Gift Cards. The cards spend just like cash; you buy a card for a friend or a family member, and the cards are good for anything at Reckless.

Tour Our Store

The cards are available in $10, $25, $50, $75, and $100, and on sale now, just in time for the holiday season.

DVD Sale

Our pre-spun DVDs are on sale for $4.95 and our Blu-Rays sell for $7.95 on the rack in front room.

DVD

This is a standard DVD-- because these discs are the norm, Reckless Video rents these in normal DVD cases, without any sort of label or banner... they're just the most common (and universal) kind of disc available.

These DVDs will play in almost any player. DVD players, Blu Ray Players, and DVD drives on computers will be able to play these discs.

Blu Ray

This is a Blu Ray disc. Reckless Video differentiates these from DVDs by providing a large, blue banner at the top of the cover.

Blu Ray discs are a newer, high definition format, providing superior sound and video quality. These discs will not play in a standard DVD player-- you must have a Blu Ray player to watch a Blu Ray disc.

Also, because Blu Ray is new technology, sometimes a new Blu Ray disc will be too advanced for a Blu Ray player-- this can be corrected by updating your Blu Ray player. Consult your manual or the manufacturer's internet homepage for the player for specific instructions.

Blu Ray + DVD

This is a combination Blu Ray and DVD disc, and Reckless includes a blue banner that clearly shows both the Blu Ray and the DVD logos at the top of the cover, because these discs offer the option of both standard DVD and high definition Blu Ray on one disc.

Combination discs are Blu Ray on one side and DVD on the other. Play these in a Blu Ray player for the high definition version of the disc; flip the disc over to play it in a regular DVD player.

Note-- if you put in one of these discs and get a "disc won't load" error (or something similar), you may be playing the wrong side. Just flip the disc over.

Blu Ray + 3D Blu Ray

This is a combination Blu Ray and 3D Blu Ray disc, indicated by the purple banner with both the Blu Ray and 3D logos at the top of the disc's case.

The combo disc will play in a standard Blu Ray player, providing the high definition, Blu Ray experience. If you have everything you need to watch a 3D Blu Ray, you can select the 3D option in the disc's menu and play the disc just like a normal 3D Blu Ray disc.

These discs will not play in a normal DVD player, and you will see a blurry picture if you try to play the 3D version without everything required for 3D playback, but you can enjoy the film with either a normal or 3D Blu Ray Player.

3D Blu Ray

This is a 3D Blu Ray disc, identified by the purple banner marked with the Blu Ray 3D logo at the top of the disc cover.

A 3D Blu Ray disc will not play in normal Blu Ray or DVD players. In order to play these discs, you must have:

1. 3D Blu Ray Player
2. High Definition 3D TV
3. HDMI Cable
4. 3D Glasses

Unless you have a 3D Blu Ray player connected to a 3D television with an HDMI cable, along with 3D glasses compatible with your TV, this disc will not work for you.
