I'm debating whether or not to get an HD-DVD add-on to my 360. I know movies are coming out all the time on HD-DVD, Transformers comes out tomorrow.

I'm curious to see which ones people own.

-The Matrix Trilogy
-Smokin' Aces
-Blood Diamond
-The Departed
-King Kong (comes with)

I would pay a bit more and get a toshiba HD-A2 stand alone for $199 (saw the deal today at buydig.com). That way, if your 360 goes down it's no problem and I'm sure you get better playback quality with this player.

Or wait until black friday for some deals. You'll also get 5 free titles either way.

I don't have much of a collection right now and plan to work on it soon, but at the moment I own "The Christmas Story" (family tradition to watch it Christmas Eve... Now that I own a 50" plasma and XBox 360/HD DVD drive, there's no way we'll be watching it in standard def anymore!), "Lucky # Slevin" (quite possibly my favorite movie of all time) and I've preordered "Transformers" (shipped today coincidently).

There you go 8)

Here is my list so far

li The Big Lebowski
li Planet Earth (The original BBC version)
li Superman Returns
li The Hulk
li Meet The Parents
li Meet The Fockers
li Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas
li Enter The Dragon
li Dog Day Afternoon
li King Kong (comes with Xbox HD DVD player)
li Goodfellas

... and if you can count it Digital Video Essentials (the perfect calibrating tool for your HDTV... comes with online support, color filters and everything).

As for future titles, I plan on getting Blazing Saddles, Casino, Full Metal Jacket, and a few others by the end of this month.

Transformers is not my cup of tea (though I enjoyed the cartoons when I was a kid)... Its sure to be a hot seller.

We have a local store here in fargo that sells used ones for 7.99-9.99. Right now I have "The Phantom of the Opera" and "The world Trade Centers". However, I just get them at the cheap price and ebay them.


16-10-2007 08:40:58

I'll definitely be getting Transformers, I've never seen Casino though, is it good?


16-10-2007 14:42:14

Casino is somewhat of a classic. By all means, check it out.


16-10-2007 17:01:08

If I had an hdtv or a player, which I have neither of, I would get 300 and Sin City for sure...


20-10-2007 21:16:23

Check this out

If I had $180 to spare, I would get this even though I don't have an hdtv...


20-10-2007 22:08:13

I almost bought the HD addon for 360 when I saw they were giving away 9 free HD dvds with it, but then I remembered that HD DVD is going to fail and didn't bother getting it.

If you're a fan of Goodfellas, you're going to like Casino.

I just bought 3 new movies, "The Good Shepherd", "Batman Begins" and "IMAX Blue Planet + The Dream Is Alive".

The two IMAX documentaries are a little over an hour and a half combined, but the HD video quality is great for film thats 17 and 22 years old respective. I would recommend this HD DVD (and its only $18.95).

The XBOX 360 HD DVD drives are pretty nice, and they also upconvert regular DVD's. We have a 52'' 720p HD TV with it and both HD and regular DVDs look great with it.


22-10-2007 10:08:07

Here is my list so far

li Superman Returns
li The Hulk
li Meet The Fockers

I don't have any (

How do you know HD-Dvd will fail? This war isn't over yet. Sony has been known to screw things up in the past with formats.

I don't really like Sony as a company and their many iterations of the memory stick have annoyed me to no end. Still, I'd like to try to be objective and point out that they co-invented CDs and DVDs.

I'm still pissed that they couldn't agree on one standard.

no one knows what format will win out yet. last time i heard the adult industry is staying hd-dvd which means a lot of things....


23-10-2007 12:54:10

Holy hell. That's a lot of HD-DVD's. I wonder how close you could come to breaking even if you sold all of them.


23-10-2007 13:33:12

Just picked up Transformers on HD-DVD today )
