While I'm pretty PO'd I had to waste $130 on BluRay's yesterday to do this very thing, I don't care either way for "studio support" I just want movies. The studios don't seem to get it. Neither do a bunch of us here. You're not propping up a technology or a studio by buying movies. No more so than owning a car meaning you contribute to global pollution. Really small dent folks. I just want movies. I want Kill Bill, Back to the Future, Incredibles, and Blues Brothers. And the studios just have it out for each other that their goddamn technology they support is something that "I HAVE TO BUY!" in order to watch their one movie I like from them.

Fuck 'em. These guys will come around eventually, one way or another, and this whole matter will be settled. There will eventually be only one format. And I hope to god that it's not downloads. I pray for it to not be downloads and all of you should too. I like owning a movie, no matter what format it's in.

I have to agree with dvddesign. Everyone acts like they've been drafted into the service of a paticular format. I bought the format that I'm fairly certain will prevail and I'm not buying every movie that is available so I can pad my number in a forum signature:
HD-DVD 92 (42 worth watching)
Blu-Ray 76 (in your face!)

Everyone who buys every movie they can afford to support a format is a stooge. Studios release crap like Norbit and Haunted Mansion out of the starting gate because they know that super loyal supporters will buy Wild Hogs just to make their camps sales number look impressive.

The studios are screwing with us. If HD-DVD tanks they will resell all the titles back to HD-DVD owners on Blu-Ray. They know they can't lose.

As an HD DVD supporter all I can say is that I hope ALL Blu-Ray disc become collector's items and that the members of this forum make a fortune selling them on eBay. That way they can rebuy their movies on HD DVD.
