I'm all for kickass home theaters and enjoying it in the quiet your own home but going to the theater is still great fun! I mean laughing your ass off with 200 strangers is great and going with a group of friends and then talking about it for the next hour. You can't beat it.

Too much laughter in a theatre is why I will never go to another comedy in a theatre again. Half the time you don't hear the next line.

Back on topic, my blind buys were:

Casablanca
The Adventures of Robin Hood
The Departed

Should hopefully get these today from Amazon (and departed next week).

So far few blind buys. Pulse, Slither, Serenity was pretty much a blind buy because I bought the SD 3 weeks before making the HD-DVD plunge. Dukes of hazzard and Enter the Dragon as well. Babel is on pre-order and will be another blind buy.

NetFlix currently rent HD-DVD's for sure... I just had to adjust my account settings to confirm I had a HD-DVD player and voila!

No Blind Buys anytime soon for me either... Departed is in my Queue though...

I have 46 HD DVD's now and 24 of them were blind buys. A recent blind buy was Swordfish, which was very entertaining. I've only ditched one blind buy so far- Jarhead. Well made movie, but I knew I wouldn't watch it again.

So far for me it has been Lucky # Sleven , Feerless & The Departed.
Lucky , was SO great! I love it when I buy a blind buy and it turns out to be outstanding.

May the Force be with you.

It's nothing extraordinary, but it is noticeably sharper (and probably cleaner; I haven't done a comparison of this yet) than the Criterion DVD. Worth an upgrade if you like the film.

But does it come in a nice case with a sleeve with bats on it? Don't make me go upgrading, Criteron's aren't cheap to replace!

I've had more than a few blind buy HD DVDs, but the one I have on order now and I'm eagerly awaiting is The Departed. I assume I will not be disappointed.

That it doesn't, but as a big fan of Criterion, I have to say that their release of "Fear and Loathing" is pretty lousy, especially compared to the HD-DVD. The Criterion has a lot more extras, though.
