Banner Day or Pay Day!!! :-0 So, your refuting the OP, any other evidence to the contrary of this being a "banner day" for HD discs? Have you seen a "banner day" in the past for HD disc, or one coming in the future?
Wow, the 14th appears to be the first time Blu-Ray will have more releases that interest me than HD-DVD. If I had a BD player, I'd probably buy Kingdom of Heaven, Black Hawk Down, Speed and The Transporter. Instead, I guess I'll just be picking up King Kong and The Eagles: Farewell Tour on HD-DVD.
I will only buy Speed on Blu-ray from Fox or Disney due to their pricing structure. It's one of the few ways I can protest studios taking advantage of early adopters. Sooner or later, they will come to the table and have their pricing more in line with their competitors whether it's BR or HD software.
By "banner day" the OP was/is categorizing that date as great for the sale of HD discs & the purchase of HD discs. You will be doing neither. Did you think by posting; "none are on my must buy list", you were agreeing w/the OP? Again, has there been a better day for HD disc for you, or is there one in the future? Hope your enjoying HD discs!
I'm getting Forbidden Planet & Casablanca on HD-DVD and Kingdom Of Heaven on BD for starters. Like Crawdaddy, Fox's $39.99 list is not sitting well with me. Besides, I have a slew of their stuff on D-Theater tape and there is no need to upgrade them. They were top dawgs with D-VHS as far as I'm concerned. So, I won't be tempted too often by Fox's wares. Just out of this first lot, I already have The Transporter & The League Of Extrodinary Gentlemen on tape. League....is definitely one of the better looking D-Theater tapes....
I may get Mutiny On The Bounty, Fantastic Four, and maybe Water World too....those are all maybe's.
My persistent perpensity to percocsiously position my posterior on the fence post appears to be predestined to failure, leaving me prostrate and pounding the earth, permeating the sky with my petulent pleas for the perposterous pots of pennies I need to purchase these myriad of perfect moving pictures
