The word is that first LOTR releases will be theatrical versions on BD and HD DVD? Will you buy these discs? You can select more than one option. Hopefully someone from New Line will take the result of this poll into consideration when they make their final decision.

LotR is coming on Total HD so it may be an impossibility to purchase just a HD DVD or Blu-ray version.

Has this been confirmed? This means another dang flipper format. I hate flippers.

I'll buy both, but hopefully they'll have both on the same release via seamless branching. And on the TotalHD side of things; I will not buy it if it's a damn flipper disc.

You do realize any disc with HD DVD/BD on it together will cost as much or more as a separate version??


There is no way Sony or Toshiba would allow any undercuuting of prices...A TotalHD disc would be just another choice it would not mean a lower price.....

It is a little red X at the top right of your browser...

So far no titles have been announced on Total HD, let alone the LOTR trilogy.


I am not entirely convinced that Warner or any other studio will publish those things after seeing the general feedback from both BD and HD buyers.


As for LOTR trilogy, I would try to get both versions.

Extended editions of movies that were already an hour too long? No thanks, I'll pass. Put me down in a new category - best transfer @ the cheapest price whether that's BD or HD-DVD.
