    I believe the list of UMDs coming out this week are:

    Kill Bill
    xXx
    House of Flying Daggers
    Hellboy
    Once Upon a Time in Mexico
    Resident Evil 2: Apocalypse

    Target has them at $12.99 and up, which is the best deal Ive seen so far.

    Anyone going to pick up some? I think Kill Bill looks good to me...

    I would pick up Kill Bill in a second but the $27 price tag I have seen on DVDEmpire keeps my wallet safe for now. Unless I see it for $12 there is no way I am getting it. I cant understand how they could charge that much for a UMD with no features when you could buy the full DVD with everything for half the price.
    Aside from that I would love to pick up Hell boy as well.

    I am not interested at all and it is not because of the price. I really don't see myself watching a two hour movie on my PSP. Now if they had a Best of Seinfeld disc or some Three Stooges episodes I would be much more interested.

    The Target I work at only received xXx, Hellboy, Resident Evil 2, and House of Flying Daggers. All are 12.99 except House of Flying Daggers which is 19.99. I might pick up 1 or 2 for a trip I'm taking to Chicago at the end of the week.

    I dont really see myself watching to many movies on the PSP either. But I find rare times when they come in handy. Waiting in bewtween classes on campus, trips etc. This doesnt happen to often but I would watch a few every now and then. That also depends on the price of the movies.

    5 bucks a pop should be good but higher? No. I'll probably just "convert" them from DVD to a memory stick.

    Yeah, that's what I will be doing but those 1gb duo sticks are EXPENSIVE. I ran a little test and managed to get about 10 seconds of video onto the 32mb stick and it works pretty well.

    U got that right. At first I thought an ordinary memory stick Pro would do as Dell has a one gig for $100 but it turns out the PSP accepts only Duo or Duo Pro. I'm correct guys...right?

    You can fit a movie in good quality on a 512mb stick though. The problem is most of the UMDs are MAR, not OAR. House of Flying Daggers and XXX are MAR, as was Spider Man 2

    Kill Bill is OAR, thank goodness. Hopefully the MAR isnt a trend.

    Well, Kill Bill and Hellboy are the only OAR that I have seen. Once Upon a Time In Mexico is slightly mar (1.78-1.85) I dont know the OAR of Resident Evil Apocolypse, but it sure isnt 1.78. XXX, House of Flying Daggers, and Pirates are all MAR though. I think it was Del Toro and Tarantino's say that they werent MAR.
