Glad to have helped someone see the light. Go forth and buy the better movies that are older. I am a fan of 70s and early 80s cinema myself.

Trust me... watch The Searchers in HD... I don't like the movie but it looks AMAZING for being as old as it is.

I just wish we would get the Sergio Leone westerns.

The French HD DVD import of Terminator 2 is absolutely stunning.

Most of Lionsgate's first Blu-ray releases were half-assed (which includes Terminator 2).

Jesus. Did you time your orgasms to match each time the Iceman hit on Maverick?

Here I was thinking that me admitting that I have a Myspace page was bad. This is a whole 'nother level.

poor Top Gun lovers.

You have to admit though it is a pretty gay movie. I bet those homos look stunning in HD though.

Nope, but I did get hard-on everytime I saw a shot of the F-14 Tomcat, which was the real star of the movie, and why I liked it so much. The first LD I bought was Top Gun.

Im not spreading information or denying that film has higher res, im just posting my findings with what i saw.

Myspace is far gayer than Top Gun.
