If you like action you would prolly like the Bourne series. I am not a Matt Damon fan that is until I finally watched Bourne Identity on Hd-Dvd. I loved it so much that I went out and bought the other two to finish out the series. I just watched Ultimatum this evening and it is absolutely awesome. I wish there was some way to tell Universal how great this series is. Man the sound and picture quality of Ultimatium is just plain awesome. All I can really say to describe it is "Wow".

Definitely the Bourne Trilogy. Also go for Blood Diamond, Chronicles of Riddick, Pianist, U-571, Shooter, Mission Impossible 3, King Kong. The Thing is a great classic horror. Pickup Batman Begins and Transformers, too. And don't forget about Planet Earth!

I thought Nine Inch Nails 'Beside You In Time' and the recent Queen HD DVD's were awesome, if you like either of those bands.

I also really liked the way Blades of Glory, Knocked Up, and The Big Lebowski looked in HD. As far as action, I agree that Chronicles of Riddick was great, although more Sci-fi then action. Actually, I don't really have any straight action on HD DVD. I thought every Western I bought on HD DVD looked phenomenal, although I personally was disappointed in the Wild Bunch as a film. I was expecting one of the best Westerns ever made, and it barely ranks in my top 20.

I don't know how many other people are still buying.

The Shakira BD is beating The Kingdom HD DVD (those hips don't lie)

The Rock is beating out Zodiac.

This is a new trend.

Thanks for all the replys, except the last one from kamspy with his off topic BD stuff. The Bourne series is a MUST buy, I did not know Nine Inch Nails was on HD DVD, Picking that bad boy up too. I forgot all about the Mission Impossible series too, I'll be grabing that too .
I'm no where near jumping off the HD DVD bandwagon. I'm RED till the END! If the end ever comes for HD DVD I'll still have my HD DVD's and a sweet ass upconverter for my SD DVD's.

What is the Big Lebowski about? If I buy Chronicles of Riddick should I get and watch Pitch Black first? Thanks everyone for taking time to answer me. My collection is going to explode in size in the next couple weeks, LOL I might even give bruce a run for his money

I just picked up Stardust, Knocked Up, The Kingdom and Shrek the Third at F.Y.E. in Hot Springs, AR. All were new and sealed but all were marked as used as were dozens of other titles sold to the store unopened as used. Today is my birthday, so after the buy 3 and get 1 free and 20% birthday special, the price was acceptable. The store is too high otherwise, but the selection of Blu-ray and HD DVD titles is good.

Knocked Up, 40 year old Virgin, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Children of Men, The Mummy, The Pianist, THe Eagles rocks!

Blade Runner is a great transfer and rocks the home theather.

Loved Planet Earth.

World Trade Center is a good movie.

MI III is a must have.

Shrek The 3rd, not bad but not as good as the first 2.


All depends on your tastes

The Big Legowski is a sort of dark comedy about this deadbeat hippie sort of guy who calls himself "The Dude" and a sort of misadventure he finds himself in when he is mistaken for a millionaire because they both share the last name of Lebowski. The Dude is played by Jeff Bridges in what I think was his finest performance, and other stars in it are John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, and John Turturro. The same guys that made the movie "Fargo" made this movie, so if you've seen that, it has that same quirky mood and feel about it, but in my opinion, The Big Lebowski is 10 times funnier. It's got tons of classic dialogue in it too, if your a fan of memorable lines.

As far as the Riddick movie, it is not necessary to watch Pitch Black first. Other than featuring 2 of the same actors that were in the first one, you really don't need to see Pitch Black at all to understand the story. The two films don't really share a similar plot line or anything. It's like, if you watch one James Bond film, you don't need to see the preceeding one to get what it's about, if you know what I mean? Riddick is one of the rare instances where the sequel was way better than the first film, but then again it's more of a standalone film than a sequel.

If you like sci-fi adventure, I also thought the movie "Serenity" was phenomenal. It's based on a TV show I guess, which I never saw a minute of. However, you didn't need to see the show to like this movie either. I thought it was awesome and it looks great in HD. Blade Runner has THE BEST surround mix I've ever heard in my life, and the PQ is good too, although I'm not sure if the actual film is for everyone.

Lastly, if you like NIN, you will love that disc. It features way too much of the material off of "With Teeth", but it looks and sounds awesome!!!

Those are some titles I forgot about too. I rented Shaun of the Dead and hot fuzz from netflix awhile back and forgot about them. Crap, I'm gonna need a sofa bed as soon as my wife finds out what I'm doing. Thanks
