Default Better on HD DVD

I just got an HD DVD player for $15 and was wondering if there's a list somewhere of HD DVDs that were better than their blu-ray counterparts. (More special features, lossless audio, different cut, better transfer, etc.)

There are a few movies on HD DVD that have more extras (or exclusive HD extras) or a longer cut as well, but I haven't listed them. Thanks for bringing that up, I think they're worth putting in the list.
