not to confuse things too much, but actually HD DVD (without the hyphen) is the correct way to refer to the specific Toshiba-backed format (see thelookandsoundofperfect.com for confirmation). the usual term for Blu-ray and HD DVD combined is high definition media (HDM).

anyway, my most desired title is: Vertigo.

Consider me schooled, thanks

And damn, HP5 looks good. I can see myself watching this movie over and over again. I love HDM in general.

I think it has been a year or so since this topic last came up so I'll list my wants again:
Pride and Prejudice (1995) (A&E)
Amélie (Miramax/Disney)
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (Columbia/Sony)
Quigley Down Under (MGM/Fox?)
The Lord of the Rings: Extended Editions (New Line)

I'd be pretty happy with my High Def investment if those came out and were well done. [I also had Serenity on my original want list but that was an initial release on HD DVD, of course.]

I'd also like to see Father Goose (the SD DVD isn't even anamorphic so the PQ is very poor; I'd really like to upgrade), Moulin Rouge (that one ought to look amazing in high def), Shakespeare in Love, Monsters Inc., Mulan, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Gladiator and The Seven Samurai (assuming a good master can be made). I'd also say the Star Wars movies but all the controversy has left me burned out on them; takes some of the fun out of watching them.

It will be a good long time before some of those hit HDM, if they ever do.

LOTR and Dangerous Liaisons (1988). I figure LOTR is inevitable but DL is a complete question mark. The current SD version is barely above VHS quality.

Comedies such as Planes and Groundhog, The Great Outdoors - what 'benefit' would you get from HD on these ?? why not upscale the exisiting DVDs (surprised that you didnt have THE JERK on HD).

The studios with these titles will have a hard day trying to sell to the marketplace HD versions - unless they sold for the same price as their current DVD ones.

It seems trivial, but after seeing a slew of HD transfers of movies that didn't seem to need it, such as Trading Places, Blazing Saddles, and even Happy Gilmore, it is really, really difficult to go back. Just having them look vastly more modern and current than even the DVDs works wonders.

On a similar topics, some movies that I never would have imagined needing it look so much better that it actually elevates the atmosphere in the movie thanks to more precise lighting and detail in the darker scenes, such is the case with Out of Sight, which is still one of the best catalog titles in terms of video quality.

I thought the topic of this thread was about what movies I want to see come out in HD. So I listed the movies I want to see come out in HD. Does it really matter what genre of movie it is? I want all my favorite movies in HD regardless of what genre it is. I would think that better picture and sound quality would "benefit" all types of movies, not just movies that tonyjg think would sell well on the marketplace.

I just bought The Jerk on HD. I just didn't mention it in my post because it is not one of my 19 favorite movies of all time.
