Default Vice-Versa???

I'm sorry if this question has been asked before but here goes. I have over 40HD DVD's and counting and don't intend on buying a Blu-ray Player anytime in the future, unless forced to. I was curious, as to know, what is the one movie that is on Blu-ray, that is not on HD DVD that you wish you had and vice versa, your favorite HD DVD that is not out on bluray?

The HD DVD's I Love that are not out on Blu-ray as far as I know, would be: Casino, Batman Begins (will hit Blu-ray, but no confirmed date) and Superman Returns.

The Blu-ray Movies I wish were released on HD DVD would be: The Underworld movies/Spiderman movies.

Superman Returns is availalbe on both formats.

If The Covenant was on HD DVD i would've bought it before having watched. But since it is Blu-ray only I downloaded it and now am kinda glad it was Blu-ray only.

The movie was ok but not worth a buy.

I've heard Crank is good as well. I also love the Resident Evil series but have seen all of those movies 5+ times. I have a hard time buying a movie I have already seen that many times. Which is why I don't currently own Batman Begins or The Last Samurai

As for HD DVDs that I could not live without.... Serenity, Fear and Loathing, Army of Darkness

Crank, and upcoming Casino Royale.

As for HD DVDs that I wish were on Blu-Ray, well, considering that this is an HD DVD forum, I will say 'NONE'!

I'm in the same boat; I bought an XA1 in early May 2006. I own over 20 HD DVD's, and have Netflixed many more. I'm not a gamer and have no interest in a PS3, and wouldn't pay $1,000 for a Blu-Ray player unless the held a gun to my head (I'd still have to think about it! )

Anyway, HD DVD's I couldn't do without: Serenity, Chronicles of Riddick, King Kong.

Blu-Ray's I long for: The 5th Element. (Just kidding, since this is the HD DVD forum I thought I could get away with it. I have the Superbit edition, and it looks better upconverted than the BR demo I saw at BB.

Blu-Ray's I (really) long for:X-Men 3, Stargate, Total Recall.

Then import Total Recall!!

All of my favorite movies are on HD-DVD. Just had to import Total Recall, Terminator 2, and Rambo: first blood. There isn't one blu-ray title i HAVE TO HAVE that i can't import.

I would love to have a GOOD version of the 5th elment and wouldn't mind seeing underworld in hd either.

Right now I support both formats, but for the moment I'm waiting for a few more months to see what comes out on BR before I buy BR player. But, I wish I had:

All the spiderman movies
Alien vs. Predator
Enemy of the State
X-Men: The Last Stand
Stargate

Really the only BD movies out now that I really wished I had were Crank, and soon to be released Saw movies. Crank was a really great popcorn flick, and Saw 1 and 2 are great, I don't really remember Saw 3 too much.

My favorite HD DVD movie that isn't on Blu-ray: Running Scared. Yeah, it's an import, but Blu-ray still doesn't have it.
