I almost wet my pants... Casablanca.... Forbidden Planet... Mutiny on the Bounty... The Deer Hunter... The Breakfast Club... I have a feeling there are many more HD DVD announcements coming. Damn it's gonna be an expensive 4th quarter for me.
I was thinking the very same thing earlier Ed about WB. It was the muscle and genius behind DVD and looks like it's the same way for HD-DVD. Only now WB is moving some current hits with a good mixture of Cinema Classics. Amazing. WB's library is huge for sure, but they have released some great ones already in HD-DVD.
Eventually might be the key, though - Warner does seem be giving preferential treatment to HD-DVD (not unexpected - don't they and Toshiba own chunks of each other?). If something is out on HD-DVD first, the people who bought both platforms will probably get it on that format, allowing them to boost the format they have a larger investment in while still hedging their bets.
