I must be getting old perhaps, my recent HD-DVD buys are The Thing and The Shining and already have Black Rain, Blade Runner and Full Metal Jacket.
Everytime I browse for releases I instantly look out for older films that will now look better.
I just find it amazing how I can watch say Black Rain and the movie feels and sounds like a recent release except Douglas had decades of ageing knocked off him, very surreal.
Blade Runner too, still bodes well against more recent films once it's given the HD treatment.
I am literally praying for something to keep the parity that's been intact so far, dual format releases would be ideal. I could enjoy the interactivity of HD-DVD for some movies such as online features and so forth and simply buy Blu-Ray for mainly their Fox titles. The rest i'm not too bothered about.
