Default Movies / TV Shows You'd Like to See in Hi-Def

One of the other threads touched on this some already and recently when ordering some movies from Amazon, they had a box that could be filled out to ask for movies you'd like to see in hi-def. Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to see what people are most looking forward to seeing in high definition. Please don't turn this into another Blu-ray vs HD DVD debate though. There is more than enough of that already.

Here are some that I hope make it to hi-def (not really in any order):

LoTR Trilogy
Star Trek (all of the movies)
Jurassic Park 1-3 (although mostly the first one)
Alien 1-4 (although mostly Aliens)
Matrix Trilogy

Independence Day (ID4)
Twister
Armageddon
Dante's Peak
The Day After Tomorrow (don't like the propaganda but I like disaster flicks)
Sum of All Fears
Crimson Tide
Titanic

Gettysburg
Saving Private Ryan
The Patriot
Gladiator

The Exorcist
From Dusk Till Dawn
Underworld
Blade
Resident Evil
The Cave
The Time Machine
Close Encounters of the Third Kind

From TV (since I already own these on standard def, I'll probably sample one or two to see how much hi def benefits a TV show):

Buffy The Vampire Slayer seasons 1-7
Stargate SG-1 seasons 1-9 (10 as soon as it's done)
Stargate Atlantis seasons 1-2
Eureka

from what i understand Joss shot all the Buffy episodes (minus the musical) in 4:3....so while they could probably make it look better it wouldn't be WS....

Main ones I want are Sergio Leone westerns... but mostly Once Upon a Time in the West, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly... those movies are just so awesome... I would also love to see Ravenous.

Those and:

Band of Brothers
Ghostbusters 1 and 2


LOST
The Shield
The X-Files
Firefly
Rescue Me



I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of any right at the moment.

Is Rescue Me really that good? I never watched it but enjoy some other FX shows (been watching The Shield from the start... season 6, I think it is?, April 3 WOOT, and I thought Thief was an awesome show also), but never really watched that one.

Then again you have Lost, X-Files, and Firefly on the list also... not sure if we have similar tastes :\.

Is it season 6? I could've sworn it was technically season 5 part 2. I'm pissed if it IS season 6 (and hell, even if it's just 5p2) because the first 13 episodes still aren't out on DVD. I always like to watch the previous season right before the new one starts so I can make sure I'm fully up-to-date and refreshed on what happened.

The Shield is in my top three favorite shows...absolutely phenomenal.

And Rescue Me is equally awesome. The drama is fantastic, story-telling amazing, and the humor is top-notch. I think both seasons 1 and 2 are on sale for $20 this week at Best Buy and both are worth that and more. I highly, HIGHLY recommend you check them out. Fantastic television right there.

Firefly for me also. I can't believe I forgot about that since Serenity/Firefly are some of my favorites. Wish they'd revive the Firefly series also.

The Patriot and Saving Private Ryan should be in production and should be releasing on BluRay hopefully within the next quarter or two.

My top picks would be Gladiator, Dawn of the Dead (remake ) and few others
