Just watched What dreams may come, what a gorgeous transfer. Anyone else watch anything lately on this platform?

I just started revisiting Battlestar Galactica Season 1. I'm too cheap to rebuy it on blu ray.

The Last Samurai. Wouldn't play all the way through without issues. Replaced with a BD. First time I've had to do that. Only other BD replacement I've done is Casablanca for the deluxe box set.

I watched Assault on Precinct 13 a couple weeks ago. I dunno, although I've committed to Blu-ray (lots of discs and Oppo 93), every time I put in an HD-DVD, I can't help but think that the wrong format won.

Still have dozen or so "shrinkwrapped" HD's to watch (out of nearly 200), started to give up on them as both my A30 and A35 would freeze up toward the end of ANY disc I played.



Well my "new" XA2 solved that (EVERYTHING that was said on this unit PQ, AQ, and build is TRUE).


Just watched "Trading Places" with Eddie Murphy, Dan Ackroyd , and a very yummy Jaime Lee Curtis. Classic 80's comedy with more language and nudity than I remember (hence the R rating), but it looked awesome and sounding pretty decent for the age. NO film grain and only occasionally, the picture looked a little off. (this is on my 46" Sony LCD) . I would rank this up with one of the best PQ in my collection. I watched Eddie's followup "Coming to America" years back and I remember it looked very good as well, these are both Paramount discs.


Still have 3 players hooked up and always look forward to HDDVD movie night.

A milestone . . .

We watched "Scary Movie 4" on HD-DVD yesterday. It played perfectly and was just as silly a movie as the rest of the Scary Movies.

This is the last of the never been watched HD-DVDs in my collection.


Update: fired up "Bourne Identity" yesterday. What a terrific film and it played perfectly.


Another update: another day, another Bourne flick on HD-DVD = "The Bourne Supremacy" = a non-stop action flick with excellent PQ & AQ.


"Bourne Ultimatum" was also loaded with action, although some parts were a bit repetitive to scenes & themes in the 1st 2 films. Great pq & aq and this combo disc played just fine.
