If HD DVD does a BOGO on all Universal and Paramount titles it will be a great week for consumers

I really hope the kiddies go back to sleep and let the mature boys praise or hash the film for what it is.

The movie itself wasn't the best although I somewhat enjoyed it. There are parts in HD I wouldn't mind watching. If I owned blu right now I would most likely rent this one. Not a buy.

My guess, not as many bastardization threads. The blu boys do enough of that

Onkyo 605 / Paradigm Titan / Paradigm CC Center / Paradigm ADP rear / HSU STF-1 / HD-A2 / 40gbPS3 / 360elite / Wii / PC
I hate fanboys..

OK, all HD DVD'ers unite and buy as many discs as you can that week!!!! Even buy ones that suck or that you'll never ever watch!!! Doesn't matter if you're spending your rent money, your grocery money, if you have to postpone getting that life-threatening surgery...we must buy all the HD DVD's we can so that SM3 won't win that week and maybe Warner will see it and go HD DVD exclusive!!!!

/sarcasm

Starting my first HT project!

I don't see much sarcasm. You've captured the spirit of the previous buy days pretty well.

I agree, I just didn't want anyone to think I could possibly sound that idiotic and be serious.

It's been 3 weeks since I received my Spidey Trilogy from OZ. Have already watched each part twice. Amazing PQ and SQ. The biggest disappointments were

1. Slight color banding in Chapter 6 in SM2
2. Terrible climax of SM3. Hope that Sony gives us SM3.1 with a never-seen-before climax.

Blu-ray : 340

I say 7 useless threads. We'll be 3 shorter this time due to not having to hear about the lack of lossless audio and how the world will envelope in flames for it.

I wonder if we will see threads titled:

Spidey- 2 discs...what a failure

Anyone see the grain at 1:23:56??

I want to watch Spiderman but my Toshiba gives an error code..do I need to update my firmware?

Also, if Spidey gets more threads will that be enough to end this war?

Well we could have one or two threads about SM1 & 2 being only BD25s and without extras. From there we could bridge to BD50 yield rates. "$ony=the devil" is always a good topic as well. Throw in a couple of "what, no pip because of lacking profile1.1???" posts and we're well on our way!

To be totally honest, this movie was not that good, but I did see it in the theater to finish out the trillogy. I did not see Transformers at the movies but have to admit that HD DVD was great!! LOL.........

My point is that who cares? This is the third movie and it has lost it's shine to me. I would much rather watch other BR or HD DVD releases coming up.

SM3 was good until the climax scenes which was a complete screw up by Raimi.

Blu-ray : 340

Definitely the worst of the trilogy but having seen the boxset online for £35 pounds, I'm in.

You mean my kids eating takes precedence over HD buy-days? I had no idea.....

By the way, as per your sig: If HD DUD is so bad according to you, why do you own a bunch of them?

Well I definitely agree with you about the numerous and ridiculous threads and polls for Transformers.

So I started a "gag" thread on SPM3 - nothing more than a rant thread - you can clearly see that from the OP. . . hoping that people would realize that maybe it won't be necessary to start numerous threads and polls.

We will see rigtht?

Please, a good number of said threads were created by Blu boys to try to highlight perceived disadvantages of the format (and to belittle it).
