Default Sweeney Todd/There Will Be Blood

With Sweeney Todd coming out next week and There Will Be Blood to follow a week after, are any of you going to pick up the DVDs since there has been no Blu Ray announcement?

I for one am going to hold off. I may rent them but I already have a ton of films in my Netflix queue. Besides, I rather watch these in High Def.

This cold-turkey abandonment of HD DVD has left HDM lovers out in the cold. Sometimes I wish HD DVD would have died a much slower death than the instant fatality it received.

Btw, wtf is Amazon doing teasing us like this?

I am tempted to pick up both of these on sd dvd. I know I should wait to see if there is a chance we could see these be released on blu this year...but my patience is not my strongest attribute.

I'm gonna hold off for one reason: I don't have unlimited funds. And I'm dying to get my hands on Sweeney -- I'm sad they didn't go ahead and release this on HD DVD for now.

I don't buy SD's anymore. It's just pointless to me now. I may rent on Netflix but probably not even that. I already saw both in the theater and I want to save my next enjoyment of them for high def. I kept thinking to myself while watching TWBB how awesome it would look on Blu-ray. So that's what I will wait for now.

Both are being released in the UK, so you can be assured of that.

just because it has a B doesn't make it not all region. I think it's a scare tactic. I'm EAGERLY awaiting word as to whether Sweeney will be all region or no.
