Default Blu-ray's 'Batman Begins'?

Peter Bracke mentioned in a recent post (http://forums.highdefdigest.com/showthread.php?t=204) that he thought the Blu-ray format could use a "Batman Begins" kind of title -- referring to the HD DVD release that has quickly become the format's defacto reference disc.

Another poster suggested maybe that title could be 'Spider-Man' -- what Sony/Fox/Disney titles do you all think might be good candidates?

I think X-Men III might be this picture. It comes out on 11/14/06. It is said that they are already showing up in the Best Buy inventory system.

That's not going to happen anytime soon, and you probably know that.

I believe the Matrix trilogy and The Lord of the Rings will prove to be favorites for a long time once they come out.

Yup, I said that tongue-in -cheek.

Fight Club?

It certainly was a great DVD reference disc.

There are several big titles that should be announced soon for Blu-ray including most of the titles you guys mentioned here. I myself just want them to perfect their features beforehand so that I don't end up buying 16 versions of the same movie.

Being one of the worlds biggest Matrix fan, I wanna see Matrix, Reloaded and Revolutions. Other nice followups are Spiderman 1 and 2 and X-Men 1-3. People who are going to get Blue-ray or HD-DVD are going to want to see some nice action and CGI type scenes. Not old movies converted.

Sony itself now has the James Bond series correct? Release some Bond, Bad Boys 1 and 2. Hero is another great title that would look awesome if done right.

Oh my word - one of my favourites - and one that would look great in HD.
