    My wish list is as follows:
    X Men Trilogy
    Bourne Trilogy
    Grindhouse
    Zodiac
    Aliens 1-3
    Dollars trilogy
    Finding Nemo
    Incredibles
    Titanic
    Under the Tuscan Sun
    se7en

    I still buy catalog titles in SD. Much cheaper and some dont look much different. Im not rebuying LOTR or Star Wars in Blu. Not worth the repurchase.

    What a list. I'll never forget Frailty. Who knew Bill Paxton could be so creepy. I have to ask. Would you actually purchase all of these titles on Blu-Ray disc? I would have to stagger that list over several years to avoid a divorce. [​IMG]

    Hi John,

    Yes, I would - assuming that they would be staggered over a reasonable period of time. I couldn't afford to buy them all at once.

    I always felt that Bill Paxton had it in him to do good work. Like Ben Affleck, though, his directing ability is superior to his acting ability.

    It's all about what you like. Besides, the more Blu Ray releases the better.

    I'm shocked that it took 33 posts to go by before someone mentioned Titanic!

    Beautiful Girls.

    With "October Road" creators Scott Rosenberg (the screenwriter of this film), Josh Appelbaum, and André Nemec now behind the British television remake of "Life on Mars", Disney; this is the perfect time for a high definition release. Also, an HD transfer has been made. There's a high demand for this, as evident by this thread here on HTF:

    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htf/...t-reissue.html

    So once again I ask you, please bring "Beautiful Girls" to Blu-ray, and finally give the current OOP DVD, an anamorphic transfer with extras along with the original theatrical trailer (in 1080p on Blu-ray, please).

    Considering the rights to the various Highlander films are all over the place a trilogy set (or even a quadrilogy or a 5-movie set) is at the moment out of the question. You may however find comfort in that Studio Canal in France is scheduled to release the first Highlander film on Blu-Ray on October 23 this year according to Amazon.fr.

    The Germans have also been so kind as to supply us with the original cut of Highlander 5 on Blu-Ray, if you are so inclined. [​IMG]

    My short answer is: everything. Don't even look @ the SD section any more. I can't stand it. (Exception - The Three Stooges Collection - took so long to get 'em in chronological order, I doubt HD is anytime soon).

    But hopeful for:

    Jaws
    Star Wars (original trilogy)
    Donnie Darko
    Weird Science
    Ferris Bueller
    Breakfast Club
    LOTR
    Batman (Tim Burton)
    Batman Returns
    My Favorite Year
    Eagles: Farewell Tour 1
    REM - Perfect Square
    Justice League Seasons 2, 3 and 4
    Incredibles
    X-Men Trilogy
    Fish Called Wanda
    Local Hero

    I pretty much own every movie on DVD that I have an interest in owning, so for Blu-ray, I'd really just like to see some of my all-time favorites get released (that haven't already been announced):

    Grease
    Saturday Night Fever
    (with the deleted scenes that were left off the last DVD release, preferably)
    Back to the Future
    Raiders of the Lost Ark
    Murder By Death
    (*ahem* with those 4 deleted scenes that were only in the TV version) [​IMG]
    Harold and Maude (I mean, who doesn't want to see Ruth Gordon in Hi-Def!) [​IMG]
    Young Frankenstein
    The Muppet Movie
    A Hard Day's Night
    Help!
    Yellow Submarine
    Airplane!
    Victor/Victoria
    Sleuth (1972)
    Deathtrap
    Xanadu
    The Wizard of OZ
    The Rocky Horror Picture Show
    Phantom of the Paradise
    (with some decent extras this time, please!)
    The Abominable Dr. Phibes (and the sequel)
    The Picture of Dorian Gray


    And in the "yeah, right, don't hold your breath" category:

    Star Wars (1977 version)
    The Empire Strikes Back (1980 version)
    Return of the Jedi (1983 version)

    I agree with Clue. The production design of that film is fantastic and would lend itself well to HD. Not to mention making it easier to follow all the little details.

    Add to that.

    Tequila Sunrise (1988)
    Klute (1971)
    The Parallax View (1974)
    The Budd Boetticher/Randolph Scott westerns
    The Maltese Falcon(1941)
    The Big Sleep (both versions)
    Escape from New York (1981)
    The Thing (1951)
    The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
    It Came from Outer Space (1953)
    The Ghost Breakers (1940)
    Fantastic Voyage (1966)
    The Andromeda Strain (1971)
    Jason and the Argonauts (1963)
    Logan's Run (1976)
    The Three Musketeers (1973)
    The Four Musketeers (1974)
    Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
    Chinatown (1974)
    The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956) (good excuse to restore it)
    Psycho (1960)
    12 Angry Men (1957)
    20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954)
    The Satan Bug (1965)

    And any of the old Republic Serials
