Noted with estimated release windows.

Also, I'd be shocked if "Hulk" isn't released with "The Incredible Hulk" (which was recently rumored as coming November 25).

I have a question for those who own the HD DVD release of "Field of Dreams". How was the high-def transfer? This is my favorite film and I hope Universal does it justice for a potential Blu-ray release.

Also, I went on DVD Empire to look at the back cover just now, and it looks like they ported everything over from the 2004 Widescreen Anniversary Edition (including the "Field of Dreams Scrapbook" which was on the first DVD release and ended up as a Wal-Mart "exclusive", and I do have that bonus disc). The original theatrical trailer wasn't listed, so I guess it didn't make it on that release either. It would be nice to see it on a Blu-ray release in 1080p.

Speaking of "Serenity", what are the chances of seeing that Q&A with Joss Whedon that was filmed in Australia on the forthcoming Blu-ray release?

My top five Universal movies off the top of my head:

1.) Back to the Future Trilogy
2.) Hitchcock (the big three and other favorites)
3.) Jaws
4.) The Blues Brothers
5.) 1941

TV:

1.) Miami Vice

One of only two TV shows that I'd probably upgrade to BD.

Chris, I bought the Field of Dreams HD-DVD when Circuit City was blowing out all their titles and sorry to say the transfer is not good. I had sold my 2004 Widescreen Anniversary Edition DVD prior to the purchase. I sold the HD-DVD and re-bought the same DVD I sold.

If Universal still has the home video rights...Soderbergh's King of the Hill.

Thanks Dean. Here's hoping Universal does a new transfer then, and they are waiting until the film's 20th Anniversary next year before releasing the Blu-ray release.
