So, some sanity....
The list of titles and my useless ass opinions of their getting a HD-DVD release.
ABOVE THE LAW This hasn't been watchable since VHS.
ALEXANDER This won't be watchable until tru-life interactive holographics allow you to sit on the bed with Angelina Jolie, having deleted the snakes from the scene. A good behind the scenes feature then will let you walk up to Oliver Stone and ask him how pulled off a film sucking this bad. Film students will learn much.
ANGELS IN AMERICA (HBO) Don't care.
AUSTIN POWERS: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY (NEW LINE) The current DVD is pretty.... doesn't matter if I can see ever pore on Mike Meyers...
BATMAN BEGINS WB's thinking ahead...
BLADE (NEW LINE) This film was very pretty in the theater, and never owned up on DVD.... Size mattered.
CATWOMAN The format is doomed.
CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY More forward thought.
CONSTANTINE : SOLD!
CONTACT : DITTO. I'm proud of this selection.
DARK CITY (NEW LINE) More courage.
THE DUKES OF HAZZARD A different kind of courage???
ERASER Now you're trying to make me sick. There were two people in this room. One eryudte movie geek with taste, and the idiot putting Alexander and Catwoman and this shit. It's a shit movie. Disagree? How MANY times have you NEEDED to pop this off the shelf and watch it. I've NEVER heard after it's release, "I've been meaning to pop in Eraser again, those were good times!" Never.
EXECUTIVE DECISION Will once again remind us it was made.
FINAL DESTINATION (NEW LINE) Ooooo Death in Detail!!! Will it look REALLY fake in HD???
FRIDAY (NEW LINE) ...
FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON (HBO) I loved this series... but like Eraser...
THE FUGITIVE I'm there.
GOTHIKA From now on, the idiot will sound his selections with a Boing!
HARD TO KILL Boing!
HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE SOLD
HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS SOLD
HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN SOLD
HOUSE OF WAX (2005) Boing!
THE LAST SAMURAI purdy!!!
THE MASK (NEW LINE) Don't Care.
THE MATRIX One day I'll learn to love again.
THE MATRIX RELOADED and hope love doesn't make me do something stupid.
THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS once bitten...
MILLION DOLLAR BABY it'll be out by the time I'm thinking of buying it....
THE MUSIC MAN ...
MYSTIC RIVER Don't Care...

THE PLAYER (NEW LINE)
THE POLAR EXPRESS
RED PLANET <
RUSH HOUR (NEW LINE)
SE7EN (NEW LINE)
THE SOPRANOS (HBO)
SPAWN (NEW LINE)
SWORDFISH Smart pick.
UNDER SIEGE yawn
U.S. MARSHALS <
WILD WILD WEST <
THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE The Sinatra one!!!!! (No.. look at their next pick ass.)
SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS For every toddler who can tell progessive scan DVD players from not, and who are really whiny that Spongbod doesn't get a crisp enough definition or that NTSC really bleaches out his spongebob yellowishness... Christ. Incredibles is a family film that should be here, this is like the Care Bears movie... any of them.
SCHOOL OF ROCK unnecessary
SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW Maybe THEN it will find an audience.
MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2
SAVE THE LAST DANCE
U2 RATTLE & HUM Hallelujah!
VANILLA SKY Boing!
LARA CROFT: TOMB RAIDER
STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT
WE WERE SOLDIERS
THE BOURNE SUPREMACY
THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK
VAN HELSING It sucked but was an eyegasm. Only the HD visuals make it a rental.
APOLLO 13 This will become one of the HD discs that show off the systems in stores I bet.
END OF DAYS Did I hear a faint Boing?
THE BONE COLLECTOR don't care.
SPY GAME more apathy.
PITCH BLACK maybe I'm just tired.
CONAN THE BARBARIAN yea, I'll come back to this.
A list like this without Titanic, Koyanisquatsi, Hunt For Red October, Die Hard, Finding Nemo, the Lion King, Akira, Blade Runner and ALL HOLY TRILOGIES (SW:OT and PT, LOTR, and Indy)
These are movies that will be bought on HDDVD no matter how many copies the owners have. Okay, maybe not Koyanisquatsi... definately not, but Best Buy and Circut City could by copies to demo TV's with.
