Yes. It is in the plan. There is a thread on it around here somewhere with this on the list.

I'm guessing January. 40 Year Old Virgin along with American Pie, Conan the Barbarian, Dante's Peak and The Blues Brothers are still M.I.A. from Universal's promised titles. I would think these all will be the next couple waves from them.

One of the few comedies I will rebuy in HD (along with American Pie). The DVD transfers on both are pretty meh, so I hope that they really make this one look good.

Dual Supporter as of January 4, 2007!

Oh wow, I am so excited. Blu-Ray is getting Casino Royale, The Prestige, PotC, and PotC2 over the next 4 months, and what does HD-DVD have to show for it... 40 Year Old Virgin... Wow, that is such great competition. Blu-Ray is doomed now.

Or you don't like pointless comedies. Sorry, I like intelligent comdies that aren't dry. Still, nothing can be as bad as Napoleon Dynamite and Scary Movie 2.

and this is why I am not worried I am sure they will start to "ramp up" production of titles and people need to remember just because they haven't announced EVERY one of those titles doesn't mean they are not coming to us. Les all be patient I am sure there are still MANY surprises that ahve yet to be announced.

Pretty funny movie. Not something i'd like to own in HD right now though. Maybe when they end up in those sale bins for like 9.99.

Also, why is it that people complain about the price of blu-rays (even though in most cases they're cheaper than HD DVD's) but have no problems importing HD DVD's at a premium price?

Depends on the volume of importing. If it's a couple here and there, you're still saving a ton of money versus going BR. I did the math on the HD DVDs that I bought versus comparable BR and the difference in price of a player and I'd have to buy something like 30 imports to even up the score as it is.

I'm sorry, you must be new here, but I'm allowed to speak **** **** about either format as I own BOTH.

Ph8te, that is a nice list, but the only movies in there I care about are The Game and Eternal Sunshine. I'm getting The Departed for BR since it is a combo. As for importing, I am not doing that anymore, as it is too much of a hassle, and the cases are not the same cases we get here.

Owning both formats doesn't make you any less of a troll. Go away, you're no good here.

It makes perfect sense, actually. I just ordered several HD DVDs from Amazon.fr for $31.75/disc (average INCLUDES 1-5 day shipping!). Yeah, that's a tough choice!...a few bucks more here and there or an immediate outlay of $700+?

What I find more confusing is people who would rather buy a second player and a second format when the same variety of content is available on one format if you just look a little harder...

Yeah, owning both formats doesn't give you carte blanche to incite riots. A troll is someone who intentionally raises tempers on a message board not someone who owns only the "other" format...
