I'll go ahead and apologize for this poll to those it offends, just hit that back button, but after reading reviews of Poseidon and Scooby-Doo I actually went as far as to check out the prices on Amazon before I stopped myself. They reportedly look fantastic, but I KNOW I'll hate them.. but still want to see them in HD.. just not $22 want
I've seen Poseidon and was disappointed.

I didn't spend a great deal of time making up these poll options, sorry if other bombs are not listed or you consider some of these to be good movies. Don't vote for them

FWIW, I actually didn't hate the Hulk, but put it here so others can vote for it because I know it has its fare share of critics. Also Corpse Bride is a movie that I know I'll hate (not a Burton fan at all) but I know it's supposed to look great.

I think your idea of "eye candy" is different to mine, out of the list there's only Tomb Raider that contains "eye candy"

Other. Chronicles of Riddick. Man did that suck.
Although I'm something of a guilty fan, I probably should have put Van Helsing on the list, its' got a dismal 5.3 IMDB rating.
Probably King Kong or Swordfish.

KK was a disappointment at the theaters and the more I thought about it afterwards, the more I came to dislike it.

I told myself I was buying solely with the intention of just re-watching a few scenes I actually liked (like the ESB end), but temptation was there to re-watch more of it thinking my attitude may have been the result of posing and trying to be a contrarian too much- but no, I actually honestly dis-liked it and regretted spending the $20 ( on sale).

The one good thing about it was that it prevented me from repeating the experience with Superman Returns- even though I would love to see the airplane rescue again.

FWIW, I love the Hulk, and greatly enjoyed Tomb Raider, Van Helsing, and didn't dislike Aeon Flux.

Haven't seen Riddick or some of the others because I have too much else to watch that I actually want to, to even be enticed into squandering 2 precious hours on something I most likely don't expect to (on the other hand, I didn't expect to enjoy Van Helsing much at all- go figure)

Tokyo Drift I knew I thought sucked ass, but I bought because people said it looked so good. Personally I don't think it did.
Why has the poll left off one of THE best PQ films so far??

Aeon FLux its a real stinker!!!!!!!!!!!

Great PQ but impossible to watch all the way through. Maybe no one is stupid enough to buy it?
Yeah sorry guys Aeon Flux and Tokyo Drift should both be on the list.. should I re-start the thread? How do I delete a thread, anyway?
I'll second 'Tokyo Drift'. Was both a pleasure (PQ) & a pain (movie itself) to watch

Other - Riddick

I've bought some other low caliber movies on HD DVD, but Riddick was the only one I bought because it looked great.
Other - Riddick as well.

I saw this in the theater and knew that I didn't want to own it on DVD, but I kept reading here that the director's cut "transformed" the movie into something less craptacular. I was deceived, but I've held on to the Riddick HD-DVD for the eye candy alone...
Aeon Flux

The movie wasn't great but something about the colors and the set just made me buy it. Must be subliminal messages embedded.
I've got you all beat... Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow!

Need to add Aeon Flux to the list. Great looking but aweful film.

This is such a subjective thread that it really comes down to personal preference. For example, while I don't feel Riddick to be Oscar-worthy, I don't find it as insipid as others here have pointed out. It's a guilty-pleasure, groin scratching while grunting guy movie.

That being said, I'd have to currently say King Kong. I'd never seen it before the purchase, but flat-out, the movie was just too damn long. Lop off about a 30 minute stretch in the middle (dinosaurs/giant bugs), and it would be a much better film.

It'll all be irrelevant by this weekend, as the wife and I will purchase Scooby Doo to watch with the kids....Now that's a horrible movie....

Ok I'm gonna re-start this, sorry early voters.
Argh even in 'edit' I can't delete the thread. Edit gives me a delete message option (but not on the first thread) but not the whole thread.

Please vote on the new thread as hopefully that'll be the last one I do.. sorry guys.
