Default Just watched the Hitcher...

On my Comcast cable in HD, and I really enjoyed this movie. Unfortunately, all I have is a PS3, and this movie is only on HD-DVD. This format war really hurts lol...

Then just go out and buy an HD DVD player and they are much cheaper than blur ray players.

I personally prefer the original version. The tone seemed more sinister and Rutger Hauer did a good job as the villain. With the remake, I couldn't get past the visions of LOTR.

Movie was a blind buy for me and turned out to be a good movie. Especially like the part where Sean Bean takes out all the cop cars and the helicopter, far fetched yes, but was entertaining.

I haven't seen it but I passed on it on Amazon (bogo I think) recently. If you have an Amazon account, they have the A3 player with 10 movies for less than $180. Thats a great deal.

See the original for the best entertainment. The remake pales greatly in comparison, as do most remakes.

The Truck scene didn't leave much to the imagination in the Remake.... The Original was more sinister yes but Mr Bean does make a nasty bad guy...

I enjoyed the remake especially in HD goodness
