Tombstone is definately a must have on HD DVD. The perfect scenery and killer audio, this one must have TrueHD track though.

Gladiator is a must make must have for me. Loved the movie very much, the soundtrack is top notch.

I'd like to see this on a double disc. With PIP commentary and bluescreen for many of the battle scenes. Dolby TrueHD. (Homer like salivating).

The other given to me is Lord of the Rings. And it would have to be the extended version. Again Lossless audio would be a must and some kick ass special HD Features.

Shrek would be another release I would like to see, maybe with a PIP of the cast recording their lines or something.

There are very few titles that I am really interested in replacing in HD though. Of the ones I have, the following would be rebuys for me:

Gladiator
LOT Trilogy
Shrek
The Incredibles
Star Wars Prequels (especially #3)
Seven
Jurassic Park (maybe)
War of the Worlds
The Matrix

Have to agree on Gladiator.

There are several Michael Mann movies I would love to see on HD DVD.

I would love to see Collateral on HD. I believe it was filmed in Digital and would be similar to Miami Vice in terms of PQ right? Even though almost all of it was shot at night I think it would look great.

I would also love to see The Insider on HD. Great story, haunting music and great performances by Pacino and Crowe.

Ali, which is listed as a possibility of coming out in France on HD DVD.

Last of the Mohicans would look and sound awesome.


Finally, HEAT. "Mann" would that look and sound great on HD DVD. Can you imagine the shootout after coming out of the bank in downtown LA? WOW!



What do you guys think?

Collateral and Miami Vice were both shot with a mixture of (primarily) the Thomson VIPER Filmstream, the Sony F900 CineAlta and (believe it or not) 35mm film cameras (for slowmotion and probably any shot that wasn't purely 24fps). I don't think it would be fair to compare the two precisely because Collateral has so many exterior night scenes. Also, no doubt it was a learning experience for all involved. The VIPER was also used to shoot Zodiac, which, aside from a few shots, looks amazing.

Quote:


The Viper, another three-sensor camera design, captures a 1920 × 1080 pixel image. In addition to uncompressed RGB output, the Viper is also capable of outputting RAW sensor data, which allows for more control in post-production.

The camera has a unique feature known as Dynamic Pixel Management, which allows the camera to change its aspect ratio by vertically ganging pixels. This allows the cinematographer to shoot at different aspect ratios without cropping the image (thus losing resolution) or using anamorphic lenses.

[...]The first major motion picture shot using the Viper was Michael Mann's Collateral, which was followed by Miami Vice, which was shot with the Viper to HDCAM. The first feature film to be shot entirely in the Viper's uncompressed digital data format is Zodiac.

Also, have an article on the shooting of Collateral:

These may be 2 off the beaten path. Not exactly thought of as high picture quality needed titles, but to me, very much replay material.

Driving Miss Daisy
American Graffiti

I mixed this up with "Enter The Dragon". Do you know it? Worthwhile if you like the Bruce Lee fights.

Here some of my whishlist candidates:

Chaplin's "The Great Dictator", "Modern Times", "The Kid", and other

I think they are in Warner's hands.

Laserdiscs: ~350
HiVision LDs: 42
HD DVD count: 379 / still 20 on the wishlist
