    Default Hd dvd pride!

    Screw you VHS winners! Errrrrrr I mean Blu Ray winners! I only joined this site because my beloved Xbox 360 had a HD DVD add on and I wanted to see reviews of the movies!

    Anyhoo... HD DVD pride to me and the whole other guy on this site that still remembers the same great video quality and extra DVD version for the price of a single Blu back when the wars first started!

    Eyyy yoooo! Pride!

    Wouldn't surprise me that some diehard Blu-ray fans will forever hate the color red because of HD DVD.

    "Would of"? "Could of"?? "Should of"??? I long for the day people realize that "of" is not a verb and that it'll never be possible to "of" something...

    So that's why I've been leaning Republican lately.

    Sigh...

    After all these years and people forget that it was always HD-DED.

    Really, now that UHD is coming out, it's about time for Toshiba to pull a new format out of their tails and try to pass it on as the next natural successor to DVD right? They will put it out at 720p, but with SUC who will notice the difference between that and true UHD?

    What else can I throw out there for the old arguments?

    I still have all my HD DVDs and I always will. Both formats have their advantages. But the region free aspect of HD DVD was just too good to be true. It was perfect for buyers, but terrible for the studios.

    All joking aside...has anyone seen any copies of "Ghost Of Mae Nak" on German HD DVD? I'd buy a Blu-Ray but none exist so this is the only way I can get an HD version with Lossless audio. Apparently the studio that put it out went out of business(wasn't Tartan). What does that technically mean for the transfer?
    edit: Rob, region rights in general are nonsense. I support copyright but not regional rigĥts. Just because you've bought the region rights to a movie here doesn't mean you've earned a sale from me. If you've done a subpar transfer here and I can get it better somewhere else I will. Just look at the hatchet job Echo Bridge has done with "Renaissance". My German HD DVD is still superior picturewise.

    I ended up donating my HD-DVD player and movies to a local shelter. The only releases I miss are Pan's Labyrinth and Harry Potter box set that came in the suitcase.

    I think I have maybe 3 or 4 HD-DVDS left somewhere. The player was the 360 add on which has been in my basement sitting on a shelf going on 6 years now. I should probably just chuck the player and HD's out, but they haven't been released on Blu-Ray yet. (1 is coming soon though next month).

    I'll say this...I actually finished 3, I couldn't bring myself to finish 4. It was so boring.

    Re: Add-On Players. I know the feeling about them sitting. I still have the Atari Jaguar cd addon somewhere.

    Nothing bad about HD-DVD, even if Toshiba lost the format war. My players and titles remain very enjoyable to this day. Of course I have a number of cinavia free blu-ray players and a huge collection of blu-ray titles also. It's all good!

    I agree. I have more BDs than HD DVDs, but I still prefer HD DVD.
