HD Movies Holiday Wish Lists?

My girlfriend asked me to put together a holiday wish list for her and her family and I noticed almost everything I am asking for consists of HD movies? Just curious which HD titles you have on your wish lists this holiday season in case I'm missing anything.

Bourne Ultimatum- HD DVD - 12/11
Superbad: Unrated Extended Cut - Blu Ray 12/4
The Die Hard Collection (set) - Blu Ray - 11/20
Spiderman: The High Definition Triology (set)- Blu Ray
Harry Potter Years 1-5 Limited Edition Gift (set) HD DVD - 12/11
Rio Bravo - HD DVD
Castaway - Blu Ray - 12/4
Pan's Labyrinth - Blu Ray - 12/26

i'd probably put the Potter films on a HiDef media wish list, but I'll probably ask for gift cards instead. If I put these on a list for my family i'd probably end up getting the regular DVD's instead by mistake.

Castaway is from Fox so that's a Blu-Ray.

I generally buy all my movies right away, so people don't usually get them for me as gifts. For more expensive items I may put out some feelers this year though, like The Blade Runner briefcase and The Harry Potter BD sets.

I totally understand what you mean. I went through a whole coaching process.

Would like the Potter collection, but think its best just to wait it out until all are released (eventhough Im sure I wont).

Hmm... I'd have to say:

- Harry Potter Collection HD-DVD
- The Host HD-DVD
- A Clockwork Orange: SE HD-DVD
- Batman Begins HD-DVD
- Matrix Trilogy (either one) HD-DVD
- Shaun of the Dead HD-DVD

I probably won't get any of them though...

Nothing, actually. I'm kind of surprised at the rather bland release slate on both formats, considering the weight these two months supposedly hold for the involved companies.

Harry Potter set (though I don't like the first two movies)
Heroes Season 1
Bourne Ultimatum (should probably just get the trilogy, though I already have the first two on SD)
Ocean's Trilogy

That's it for me.
