I probably won't buy any of the single layer mpeg-2 releases. What I'm really waiting for is:

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
Band of Brothers
The Pixar movies
Pulp Fiction
Batman Begins
Spiderman 1&2
Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind
The Matrix

Hopefully they will all be on 50gig dual-layer discs with Mpeg-4 compression.

- The Spider-man movies
- The X-men movies
- LOTR trilogy
- Matrix trilogy
- Men in Black
- Pirates of the Caribbean 2
- Re-encoded, cleaned up version of The Fifth Element
- King Kong (I'll buy it on either format, whichever looks better)
- Munich (one of my all time favorites)
- Kingdom of Heaven (can't wait for this one)

I know King Kong's slated for HD-DVD, but I own an Xbox 360, and more than likely I'm gonna end up buying the HD-DVD add-on for it. I'm also looking forward to the PS3 at launch.

EDIT: I'm also hoping that all of the above will be encoded in either AVC or VC-1, whichever produces better results. Not to mention lossless audio.

Good times ahead!

Something with PQ at least equivalent to HD-DVD?
nyg's Avatar nyg 10:20 PM 09-03-2006
I'll be buying some of the Fox and Disney titles for sure. Once Sony and Lions Gate get their PQ issues sorted out I'll buy their discs as well.
eightninesuited's Avatar eightninesuited 11:25 PM 09-03-2006


I can't wait for Gladiator on Blu-Ray. Imagines 7.1 discrete DTS Master Audio of the Collessium. And of course high definition PQ revealing people wearing Timex Indiglo watches among the crowd.
anilrao's Avatar anilrao 08:39 PM 09-04-2006
My top three.

2001: A Space Odyssey
My Fair Lady

I certainly hope that Lions Gate would get their act together as well.

I just saw Crank in the theatres a few days ago, and I must say that it would make for a FANTASTIC HD presentation. The film's picture was nearly flawless, with not a speck of grain to be found. Stylized direction, lots of color, and fast moving scenes would definitely make this fine demo material if encoded and transferred properly.

Being a Lions Gate film, I'd imagine it's only coming out on Blu-ray.

Here's hoping that they would go with VC-1/AVC for this one...

I haven't checked the list of movies of other people have given on this thread. But among the thousands of movies that I look forward to seeing on BD, two of them has to be Pleasantville and Down With Love.

Leftfield, I know. But great moviemaking and pure eye-candy to boot!

In general I'm on the wait to see how VC-1 and mpeg4 work out. I want Master And Comander to compare against the D-VHS tape.

I love that movie!!!

Except for Best Buy Brian who will buy all of those movies he listed (BB must be giving him a great discount), nobody else wanted to get the Mission: Impossible box set. Isn't that like one of the big test of the formats?

Saw another movie tonight that I'd love to get on BD - El Hijo Del La Novia aka Son Of The Bride.

#1 No movies in particular, but for starters better caretaking, better masters, better encoding (VC-1) and preferably BD-50 (to the insiders, please note i'm not a candidate for double dipping any more ).

#2 pricetag under $299 for a premium player

By then hopefully #1 will be sorted out.

I wouldn't buy but a dozen or so titles over several years and assuming Fox stayed blu-ray-only i'd pickup POTA original and maybe EP4-6 (might even just netflix those).

Yep. I'd double-BD-dip for the theatrical and EE versions. But it should have the best possible video and lossless audio at original sampling rate (not 16-bit).

I can just imagine it now - tissues at end of FOTR, tissues at Gollum-Smeagol in TT, and a whole damn box for ROTK.
