It'd be nice though. That sound that the tripods make on BD would send a seismic shock 3 miles in all directions.

I would love to have War of the Worlds on BD. Next to Saving Private Ryan, Jaws and Jurassic Park this would be my favorite choice for Spielberg films on BD.

I saw this at the Chinese Theater and it blew me away with the subs and all they had there. This should sound beyond amazing on Blu-ray

Another one I'd love to have is Always. Another HD DVD exclusive.

Paramount has the distribution rights, so if it were to come out it would be on both formats.

Spielberg withheld most of his big titles from DVD until he felt that the format had enough market penetration that his movies could make a big opening-week sales splash. He seems to be doing the same for the High-Def formats.
