How many Christian Bale movies do you own?

It appears that no other actor is better represented on HD than Christian Bale. His movies that are available on either HD-DVD or Blu-Ray:

American Psycho
Reign of Fire
Equilibrium
The Machinist
Harsh Times
Batman Begins
The Prestige

Any other actors that have more movies available?

I just have American Psycho, Batman Begins, and The Prestige so far.

We did the most HD actor a while ago, but it's obviously changed since then.

I think Brad Pitt is up there (or will be) with:

12 Monkeys
Seven Years in Tibet
Troy
Babel
Spy Game
Legends of the Fall
Meet Joe Black
Mr. and Mrs. Smith (coming)
the 3 Ocean's ... movies (coming)
plus a quick cameo in Being John Malkovich

I have Batman Begins. I rented Harsh Times and withstood the first fifteen minutes until I couldn't take it anymore. Not to threadcrap, but that movie was horrible!

I was just thinking this the other day - which actor has more films avaliable on HD/BD.


I would say if we did the director's camp it would be Martin Scorsese. In a couple months it should be Stanley Kubrick.

1. Batman Begins
2. Equlibrium
3. American Psycho
4. The Prestige

Overpar - Harsh Times: Is this the general consensus of this film?

I was wanting to see it. But was afraid of it being a polished turd - a turd is still a turd.

I thought Harsh Times was pretty decent. I had heard a lot of negative things about the movie and was pleasantly surprised. American Psycho aside, it is easily Christian Bale's best performance.

I own no HD titles with Christian Bale, but own the SD versions of Batman Begins and American Psycho. I've been contemplating an upgrade to the HD Batman Begins.

Here was my problem with it. The dialogue was very immature sounding. It sounded like a high school student wrote it (public high school). Also, it had my biggest pet peeve in modern cinema/television - SHAKEY CAMERA SYNDROME. I don't know how people put up with watching stuff like "The Office", "24" and others. Watching the camera move all around makes me dizzy and naucious. I guess people like that stuff because those are two of the most popular shows on tv. To each, his own.
