Sounds like pure fanboy BS. Out of the 150-200 HD DVD titles at Best Buy, there is just nothing you'd want? Give me a break. Then again you do like AvP, one of the worst movies in history...

It is just all personal preference. If you go to the HD DVD webiste, alot of their 'new and upcoming releases' are all rewinds of older movies. Dont get me wrong, I love my HD DVD player and have about 10 titles for it thus far but IMO I just feel BluRay has the better title selection, but yet it can just be that I love nothing but sucky and corny movies

There are way more BR titles I would want than what HD-DVD has going for it right now. I looked at the upcoming releases on HD and "Heroes Season 1 - Coming in August" was the only one. What about titles like "Crash", "Flyboys", Rocky Balboa"? Those are the ones I wanna spend my hard earned money on.

Yeah, that's actually only 3 HD-DVD titles that I wanted, and I own them. Everything else that I wanted, is on Blu-Ray. Universal is going to run out of movies soon enough. And Weinstein? Who are they again???

Crash and Rocky? lol

Buying movies just seems dumb to me nowadays. netflix ftw. Looking at my collection of over 1000 DVD's, I realized nearly half are unopened.

Hey Chris how many movies did you own already for HD until you finally stopped and went with NexFlix? Just curious, Im considering joining BlockBuster Total Access as well since the pricing is well set and they also give you a free an in-store game rental every month. Alot of the movies I would end up picking up on High Definition I simply just gave away...alot of the other ones I wouldn't watch or I realized were still wrapped I also gave away

Universal is going to run out of movies? Correct me if I'm wrong, but they have the largest catlogue of movies and the MAYBE 100 they've released so far isn't even a scratch on a scratch on the surface.

Netflix is ok, it's just the small print. The more you rent, the LOWER the priority they use to mail the movies to you. LAME! Blockbuster's deal is better and I know tons of regulars that are way more happy using BBOnline over Netflix. Now if people can only understand that we still have late fees . . .

True, I am eagerly awaiting so many titles to come out from Universal it is not even funny, however seeing the upcoming titles from them, doesn't look like I'll be getting my wishes anytime soon

I wish Spielberg would stop being such a dick and let them put out Jurassic Park and Jaws among many others.

There are actually a few movies out there that would get me to buy a brand new player for a brand new format. Mainly because I'm just that big of a fan of those select movies.

Assuming the Aliens movies also get the BD treatment and the quadrilogy is released yet again in BD...I may consider getting a BD player. As much as I hate BD and want Sony to lose this, it's getting to the point where I'd rather be format neutral because there ARE a lot of BD-only movies I'd like to have.

They're going to have to come out with cheaper and better players first, though.
