Default CNET Lists the top 40 movies not yet on Blu Ray

http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-18438_7...html?tag=rtcol
Some of their choices I agree with and some not so much. Many on the list have been announced or talked about as coming out "soon".

I saw the list yesterday, I will agree with many of the 40 but there are some I thought can wait a while.

Not really feeling:

CHARIOTS OF FIRE
CINEMA PARADISO
DAZED AND CONFUSED (God, what a freakishly overrated movie--I liked it so much better the first time, when it was called AMERICAN GRAFFITI)
RUSHMORE
SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE (really? Isn't this the most "what were they thinking?" Best Picture Oscar ever?)
SLAP SHOT (am I losing it? I consider myself a big film fan but I can't say I've ever even heard of this movie)
SWINGERS

...but, otherwise, this is quite the commanding list (actually, I'm not feeling the snorefest THE THIN RED LINE, either, but even I have to concede it would look rapturously gorgeous in 1080p).

I couldn't see Swingers being impressive on BD. I mean, it's a pretty low budget fare. I'm sure it'll obviously look better than the DVD. It just isn't something that I see winning any awards.

Cinema Paradiso is a fantastic film. I loved it. I bought it on a whim, and sat down to watch it. Truly a sad, but wonderful film. I'm sure it would look rather beautiful. I'd buy it on BD...and not just for a dollar.

yeah overall not that comprehensive a list imo.
I mean some of the choices are just baffling.
also: 3 movies on the list ARE on bd already--
"Cinema Paradiso", "The Deer Hunter", and "leon"
LOTR shouldn't have been included given his criteria because we know it's coming out soon.

it was released in Japan long ago, and now there is a UK version coming soon I believe.
I made a thread about it the other week.
Japanese version has no English subs.
