Top 5 exclusives for each format

Just for some fun discussion... what do you guys consider the top 5 exclusives for each format that are out right now (or this week)?

Here's my list I just made quickly...
Overall I think Casino Royale is the biggest exclusive across both formats and King Kong may be second

Blu-Ray:
Casino Royale
Rocky Balboa
Terminator 2
X-Men last stand
Ice Age 2

HD-DVD:
King Kong
Children of Men
Troy
Fearless
Batman Begins

BD:

The Prestige
Casino Royale
Talledega Nights
Crank
Saw III

HD-DVD:

Batman Begins
King Kong
Serenity
Clerks 2
Poseidon

I guess I defined most important as a combination of both most important to selling systems and movies I liked, and only went with already released titles. I mainly went with new stuff, but I think that my personal favorite is Batman Begins for either format. I was surprised to see that I liked my HD top 5 list more than the BD top 5, but there's more upcoming BD stuff on the horizon that could easily crack that list.

It seems that most of the HD-DVD titles listed aren't even new titles, but then again there haven't been too many new titles to mention.

HD:
Lucky # Slevin
Goodfellas
Batman Begins
King Kong
Constantine

Blu:
Devil's Rejects
Ice Age 2
Terminator 2
Rocky Balboa
Saw

I'm not sure if all of the one's I listed are exclusives, but that's what I watched them on.

Should Batman Begins be considered an HD exclusive? I've been in stores that advertise and show Batman Begins on a Blu-ray demo disc. I'm assuming it's coming out for BR eventually/soon?

Of course, if we're just considering the present....BB is currently an HD exclusive.

Yes, Batman Begins will eventually be on Blu-ray. Warner is waiting for BD-Java to be finalized so that they can replicate the In-Movie Experience feature from the HD DVD on Blu-ray. This also applies to other Warner movies like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the upcoming Matrix trilogy.

For movies currently released, based on my opinion only:

HD DVD
Children of Men
Serenity
Miami Vice
King Kong
V for Vendetta


Blu-Ray
Casino Royale
The Descent
Reservoir Dogs
Crank
The Prestige


Blu-Ray has me as a customer once these titles are released:
Amélie
Amores Perros
Kill Bill
Snatch
Y Tu Mamá También


The thing is, a couple of these might come out on HD DVD abroad before they come out on Blu-Ray here. So I'm waiting to see.
