You sure about SPR? It's a Spielberg flick and as far as I know, he's not allowing any of his stuff to be released on either next-gen format as of yet.

^^ Ya well not 100% sure as I read that on a BluRay forum from an article released back in January. I know the Patriot is for certain though, but Im really hoping the same holds for Saving Private Ryan. I love my war movies In Hi Def

Cool.
I can't wait for the Chiller channel on Directv to go HD hopefully later this year. Yea I know they have commercials but it's the only horror channel available right now except for Monsters HD on Dish and hopefully Directv will carry that later this year also when their satellites go up.

HDNET Movies has some decent HD transfers of horror movies sometimes. I saw Friday the 13th on there one night and it looked pretty damn good.

Yeah, Jaws is another one I should have listed.

I really like a bunch of the horror movies like Halloween, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Pumpkinhead, Candyman, etc. but I wasn't sure how well they'd look in HD. Since they're a little older, I was concerned the added detail and clarity of hi-def might make some of the special effects look fake.

Yea it might, but remember the film they were shot on has more resolution than HD.
A lot of people think regular dvd is the best a lot of old horror movies (and just old movies in general) will ever look. Wrong.

Hmm, no star wars fans here? I haven't seen any listing for them yet but it is possible that you guys already know they are coming out with them in HD.
