the cinematography was killer looking, vibrant colors etc.

The Mummy D-Theater tape is in a league of it's own, I would love to see this on HD-DVD soon

Yup, it was a TriStar release, so that'd put it in Sony's court.

Do you think somebody is going to figure out a illegal way to copy a blueray movie to a blank hd dvd disk in the future. I am not for that. It only seems somebody always does something illegal with these technologies.

When are some good titles coming out on HD-DVD? I am just sitting back and waiting because there is nothing drawing me to HD-DVD yet as far as media. I thought Batman Begins and Matrix were coming? Right now I have much better movies on DVHS, yes it is a dying format, or some say it is dead, but the collection of films on D-Theater is going to be superior to HD-DVD for some time to come at this rate.

Last Watched 3D: Oz the Great and Powerful

It should be called Violet-Ray

Twister would be a good sound and picture test, theres a lot of scene with high movement. THe first release was crappy (1997) , the re release was better..but there still mpeg artifact here and there..

89+ Blu-ray Disc ;)

When is Paramount going to release anything and when are we going to see day and date releases (will V for Vendetta come out along side the DVD)? I haven't bought an HD-DVD player yet but I plan too before the end of the year and would love to see more dual format releases like Rumor Has It. I would buy the dual format release instead of the standalone DVDs right now even without a player. I just bought The Producers(musical) on DVD but would have gladly waited if an HD-DVD version was on the way. I hope MI:III gets a day and date release later this year. I thought King Kong was going to be one of the first titles. I would think that they would release some big titles to try and get the attention of the average consumer. I just don't think Rumor Has It is going to sell players but, LOTR might. I'm sold on HD-DVD (going to get either the 360 add-on or one of the Toshibas) and the only way they loose me as a costumer is if Universal begins to support Blu-Ray but, I'd still love to see more big titles released.

You simply can't, because Blu-ray is not a DVD..it's disc size and structure are different.

Blu-ray is a totally new different format, While HD-DVD is more related to DVD.

So the simple answer is no.

You can put a blu-ray managed copy on hd dvd r and vice verse.

Assuming there's enough capacity both ways.

The physical disc size of Blu-Ray is different?

SurfingMatt, your signature "BLU-RAY: THE ONE AND ONLY TRUE HIGH DEFINITION FORMAT OF CHOICE," is funny. If BR is truly the one and only true HD format, how can there be a choice?

Matrix
Jurassic
Twister
Saving Private Ryan
Top Gun
Titanic
Gone in 60 Seconds(the Nic Cage one)
Armageddon
Master and Commander

And don't laugh, but Fast and the Furious! I'm 40 this year, but despite the film's obvious technical errors, I enjoy the fast-moving, entertainment-only film that mainstreamed import modding. Granted, I can't stand "riced-out" cars, foreign or domestic, but I would never have been interested in buying my S2000 had I not seen that film.

Learning... always learning

I'm surprised to see Fast and Furious 3 is getting some positive press. It might be the sleeper hit of the summer.
