How do THE FIFTH ELEMENT and HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS sell so well? I marked both of these titles off of my Blu-ray wishlist (along with Field of Dreams HD DVD) due to the almost unanimous negative reviews.

'Cause most people don't read reviews, and not all of those that do are going to be deterred.

Paramount makes up an extremely small portion of my HD-DVD collection. As does Fox with my Blu-ray discs. Not surprising that both studios combined have one title on the Top 10 lists.

Man, Happy Feet had a lot of suck to it. Even my kids thought so. Surprised it has done that well.

Maybe the worst Oscar winning film I have ever watched. I really regret dropping $25 on the HD DVD though my 3 year old does like it.

Monster House was 10 times the film Happy Feet was.

I'm no fan of Happy Feet, but Forrest Gump and Driving Miss Daisy are much worse Oscar winning films, IMO.

Agreed.

I would have had to see them to make that judgement.
