Default I Did It!!!!!!!!!!

I went to work(CC) yesterday and i saw the HD-A20 at $250, i think thats the regular price now but i bought it any way.
I am now format neutral i bought Casino, and for the 5 free i got The Frightners, Darkman, The Thing, The Italian Job, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
I will likely pick up The Deer Hunter and Children of Men soon, any other recommendations?

the best to me so far (in no particular order) are:

"The Graduate" (French Import)
"Casablanca"
"Transformers"
"2001: A Space Odyssey"
"A Room With A View"
"A Clockwork Orange"
"Full Metal Jacket"
"The Adventures of Robin Hood"
"The Untouchables"
"The Matrix"
"Star Trek: Season 1"
"Bourne Identity"
"King Kong"

Batman Begins is awesome
Matrix Trilogy they look superb
If you like it Enter The Dragon looked great for a movie over 30 years old
Transformers
If you like music Eagles Farewell 1 Tour, Deep Purple, Heart are awesome concerts
King Kong 2005 & 1976 Import look awesome
Dantes Peak
U-571
We Were Soldiers
End of Days was descent could have been better could have been worse
Water World looked awesome but there were no extras in it so I did not buy it.
Terminator 3
Top Gun

One's to stay away from
Tomb Raider it was so grainy I turned it off I was like I cant watch this anymore.
Goodfellas was very grainy as well they really should have done a better job on this one.
That's all I can think of right now.
Hope this helps.
Mischa.

just make sure if you buy full metal jacket to get the recent version

old version:

new version:


personal recommendations... basically all of these

out of those
most recommended... as demo material the nine inch nails disc is wonderful and if you like nine inch nails as i do it's definately worth a buy

least recommended... dirty dozen... definately not my best looking hd-dvd but still looks better than the SD-DVD

"A Room with a View" is an excellent movie that I most highly recommend, but the picture quality is just average, definetely not reference material.
