, because I wanted to see the movie but didn't want to blow $20 on the regular DVD knowing that my mind was already made to go HD-DVD.
Bought seven more HD-DVD's (Batman Begins
, The Adventures of Robin Hood
, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
, Lady in the Water
, Good Night, and Good Luck
and Superman Returns
) and an HD-DVD add-on for my XBox 360 (w/ King Kong
packed-in) but haven't hooked them up because I haven't bought an HDTV yet. Ironically, despite my antipathy toward them because of cost, the HD-DVD combos have allowed me to enjoy my purchases by letting me watch the SD version of these movies while I get closer to pulling the trigger on what will be my first ever HDTV.
