Well, now comes MI-3 which was released HD-DVD at the same time as DVD, so this is the first movie for me where the first time I am seeing it (and owning it) is on HD-DVD.
Just wanted to know if others have been able to show better self-control.
The last samurai, Perfect Strom, Serenity, apollo 13 were all movies I have in HD that I never picked up in SD.
Toyko Drift F&F 3, and MI 3 will be the 1st movies I will be buying for HD-DVD that I haven't seen in the theater or on SD-DVD.
"The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests. And cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Courts will be convened. Spoils will be enjoyed!"
btw is there any places online to buy them cheap? besides ebay.
Aeon Flux, then Serenity, Space Cowboys, T3, Batman begins.
I stopped buying DVDs over a year ago, so the only movie I own twice is U571.
I picked it up along with Training when I picked up my Toshiba HD-A1
Corpse Bride <--- It was very hard to hold off buying the DVD.
#4 will be King Kong (with the HD DVD drive), and #5 will be The Thing.
I'm not keen on purchasing most of my DVDs on HD DVD again. OTOH, I wish combo discs were cheaper, because I'd preferentially buy those (if all the usual extras were still there). I like the fact I can rip DVDs to my iPod. So far we can't do this with HD DVD.
Chronicles of Riddick
I previously didn't own either of these. Since than my HD-DVD collection has expanded (not alot, I only have 16 or so movies)and I don't have any movies that I previously owned on DVD.
The Last Samurai
Phantom of the Opera
Million Dollar Baby
Actually, at least half of my discs have been "blind buys", and I have had some pleasant surprises.
