The movie I want most on HD-DVD is probably "Heat", but it's WB so if it does get released again, it'll probably be on HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. What movies do you guys want?

If either format proves to be successful enough, then absolutely. Sure, the release of the original, unaltered trilogy was a debacle, but people shouldn't forget that Lucasfilm has been responsible for some of the best DVDs ever, in my opinion. All the Star Wars DVDs (excluding Episode I) are excellent releases, and I have no doubt that if Star Wars is released in HD, it'll be an excellent presentation; unfortunately, I don't think we'll see the real, untouched trilogy, but that doesn't mean what we will get won't be an excellent presentation.

I could be wrong but I think Dreamworks handled domestic distribution and Paramount Pictures covered international. Now, as for what that might indicate as far as a future HD release goes, I don't know. If it were Paramount it would probably be released in both formats concurrently. I don't know what Dreamworks's stance is on HD, though. Does anyone know?

I did some research and found that Dreamworks co-distributed Collateral with Paramount, its sister studio. In 2005, Dreamworks was purchased by Viacom, who owns Paramount. So hopefully this means they are neutral in the HD war and release it on both formats.

Also, I looked into Heat again and since it's Warner it should be on both.

It would probably save alot of typing to just list which films you DON'T want on HD disk.

Examples:
Adrenaline
House Of The Dead
Dark Harvest 1 - 3
Highlander 2 - 4
Rollerball (the new one)

If I were to narrow it, LOTR and the Hitchcock films would be at or near the top of my list. There are plenty of others as well.
