I'm definitely pumped for the New Releases.

As I said on AVS.....

Hopefully, Universal gives us the Tangerine Dream cut of Legend!

Glad to see that we are getting Heroes in HD!!!

Anyway, I'll take about 5 of those to go, please.

But I wants MORE!

I didn't realize that was 58 titles. Damn, that's most of Universal's slate for the year.

If priced reasonably, do you think Heroes would be a decent blind buy? All of the previews I've seen for it have looked pretty damn good, and I am not sure I want to rely on Netflix.

I haven't been watching Heroes, although I plan on buying the HD DVD set. The miniseries that opens Battlestar Galactica is kind of lackluster (fine, but not great), but the first season/season and a half are outstanding. In my opinion, the show took such a dramatic nosedive in season two, particularly the last half of the season, that I found it unwatchable and couldn't bother with season three.

Yes.... Excellent Blind Buy.

This show has surpassed LOST in my weekly viewing list.

August - Heroes: Season One (depends on cost)

September - Nothing
9 movies is about all I want and some of those are iffy. Heroes would be awesome, but I'm betting the sticker price will drive me to the regular DVD.

I missed Heroes from the start, but I'll certainly be purchasing the HD DVD set. Not to mention about 20 other titles. It's a great mix of stuff, but I don't think anyone would have been bothered if they had listed a big blockbuster film or two.

I wish they would do Blu-Ray, I just bought a PS3, or at least do combos with HD-DVD and Blu-Ray
