Default What 'not so rare but tough' HD DVD titles are you still looking for?

Now that my collection as grown to well over 300 the pickings are becoming very, very slim. I have a complete Weinstein HD DVD Collection (not hard, $20 at Fry's). I have literally every domestic and import release I could possibly want. Now I am working on some others that seem to be a bit tougher to find than others...like The Lost City, Bubble and PS I Love You. I've already spent $24 on One Missed Call (sigh) and beside PS I have all the 'late' Warner titles.

Which ones are you still looking for?

At this point, just Sahara, but that's only because I don't want to spend more than $6 for it. Someone had it on the forum last week for $5 and I completely glossed over it because they had a huge list... kicking myself!

Other than that some of the "rare" titles are going for more than their blu-ray counterparts and I'm sure as hell not spending anywhere near the same amount of money for an HD DVD when the blu-ray is either the same price or a little more expensive.

Is there a list or thread somewhere about this? I'm very curious.

Mmmm, probably the only two that I can think of are P.S I Love You and Sublime. Not because they are great movies simply because they are the last late Warner titles I am missing.

I nabbed Sublime for $20 on eBay last month.

deliverance
dog day afternoon
led zeppelin
king kong '76
hero
downfall
torchwood

All blind buys for me with the exception of hero & partials viewings of torchwood & kk 76. Would like to eventually pick them up even though it's doubtful on all but a couple. I can import the blu version of Downfall for less than $20, which is what i'll probably end of doing.

I know a cpl of these aren't all that hard to find, but just not titles that are "a dime a dozen" so to speak.

Pretty much just The World's Fastest Indian remains, but I've just about given all hope in regards to finding it for the same or less than it's Blu-counterpart. As someone else mentioned, I can't push myself to pay more than the Blu-equivalent at this point...

ETA: I'm surprised P.S. I Love You is difficult to find, I got mine a while back from Deep Discount when they were blowing out HD DVD's. Now it's coverless, but doesn't seem like it would be any more rare than a title like Taking Lives (which is also pretty commonly found). I can imagine Sublime however as it was no where near a hit movie and I have never seen it for purchase anywhere - even when HD DVD was still limping by following February '08...

I saw Sublime at Frys for 2 months but was $22.99 while the Blu-ray was $13.99....very odd pricing for a dead format. Two are up on eBay right now cheap.
