Default American Gangster will be another big hd dvd exclusive

The film just opened up to $46.3 million and should clear anywhere between $150 mil-$200 mil and a lot of people seem to really enjoy it. This is just an observation as I am purple.

I don't care how much money a film makes, it's no indication of quality. Ridley Scott, however is. This is gonna be good....

AG is getting excellent reviews!!

Movie Review Query Engine - American Gangster

My favorite critic, Roger Ebert, gave it 4 out of 4!

I am going to resist the urge to see this in the theater. It will be tough but I'll keep reminding myself that it will be a real treat once it comes to HD DVD.

And, as a Universal title, we won't have to put up with the "We'll have it in 18 months" WAG from the Blu crowd!

Let's not forget about The Kingdom, another Universal, aka HD DVD-exclusive, title!

2008 is going to be very good to my home theater enjoyment!

I would be very, very surprised if they didn't have DolbyTrueHD. Universal has been very good about that. Although, I don't currently have a set up to take advantage of it, so it does not matter for me.
