Turkey Day HD movie viewing - What are you watching?

I thought I'd throw this up just for the hell of it. I'm kind of worn out by all the format hoopla. I myself do have both formats. But I'm just wondering how many of you out there spend Thanksgiving day at home watching movies and getting stuffed. I'll watch a game or two, but my whole family usually invades my DVD (and now hi Def) movies and watches whatever they feel like.

I think I'm going to have them watch Ratatouille, maybe a few Pixar shorts. My dad is jonseing to see Transformers, so I figure that's a good way to blow out their eardrums. And probably The Host just to get a rise out of them.


So what are you all watching this holiday? My apoligies to those actually working that day, those few of you out there. Peace and stay safe.

Chuck and Larry? Blades of Glory? Trying to find an HD DVD title that my grand parents won't flip out about because it has sexual "yuckies" in it

My wife and roomates and I will be watching the Thanksgiving classic, "Planes, Trains, & Automobiles"! Classic Steve Martin & John Candy stuff! I also love that Steve says the word "f***ing" 18 times. How can you NOT love that ?

Is Blades of Glory worth it in HD DVD? I've almost stopped buying SD DVDs, but this one is ultra-cheap this week (Borders, BB) -- plus I have a $3 off coupon. And the HD DVD lists at $39.99 -- why??

I'm thinking a little Road Warrior (HD), Deliverance (HD) and possibly one or two more. I still need time to eat and screw my chick, so I'll need at least 15-20 minutes free.

It's a new release, same price as Fox, Sony, Universal, and Lionsgate new releases (okay, Sony's are a dollar less), and Warner's HD DVD new releases since they are combos.

binge & purge?

I'm going with Ratatouille on BD and Caddyshack on HD for sure, hopefully Planes, trains, Autos, MST3K, and Last of the Mohicans on SD.
