    Another one off my list of HD DVD exclusives. Only 6 left from my collection. Good to know if I need to replace any. To think, when this list was first put up, I had nearly 150 titles on it.

    That's what I don't understand, they release Liar Liar again which was last released on BD in 2011, but ignore films like Sneakers.

    I have about 35 HD-DVDs, but Sneakers is the only one I really care about. I would probably put my player in the closet if I could get that on Blu. The other factor is that I've already had to replace my first HD-DVD player due to it failing and the new one is incredibly temperamental with my receiver for some reason, 90% of the time it doesn't pick up sound and I go through and change settings that are correct then change back sometimes it works. Everything else I care about I already have replaced or will the next time I have the urge to watch.Sneakers is the entire reason my HD-DVD player remains connected.

    I need to re-purge my HD-DVD collection as well. Last I cared to check for the BD version was almost 18 months ago. I don't have Sneakers, but I do have a few concert/music discs that I doubt have made the changeover.

    When I left my prior employer, we had around 100 un-opened Tranformers that we couldn't give away if we tried. We also had a few titles in other file drawers...nothing I didn't already have.

    I don't recall Liar Liar ever having a previous BD release...?

    It's available on Amazon, but it could be another region release as Amazon does that a lot with many titles.

    Looks like it was released in the UK in 2011. This is the first US release.

    It comes out tomorrow actually, fun. Since Universal now has a Blu master of this, I'll give it 6 months to see if we get a domestic release, then if not that might be something I get, but I HATE non-US discs, its an irrational thing. I've only ever gotten 2 for things that either weren't going to come out here or were going to be a couple years wait.

    I just bought Sneakers BD from Amazon UK. It's a region free release from Universal. I bought four other BD titles that worked out to about $16 each.
