    Nice! I see a few good rentals and one definite (and I am sure expensive) purchase in there!

    I missed Hot Fuzz in theaters. LOVED LOVED LOVED Sean of the Dead so I'll definitely be looking at the HD-DVD.

    Patch Adams, hold me back.

    OK, there are some good ones there, but that one is just crap...

    The list is pretty underwhelming for me. It doesn't bode well if the major player in your format has a weak list. Let's hope that Universal has some tricks up their sleeves because based on that list alone, EEK.

    An interesting one is Timecop which was never released on DVD in widescreen.

    Coming from our resident expert in the topic, I'll take that as a compliment.

    8/7 - Hot Fuzz - most definitely
    8/14 - Erin Brockovich - maybe
    8/28 - Heroes: The Complete First Season
    9/18 - Battlestar Galactica: The Complete First Season, The Last Starfighter, Legend - all maybes
    9/25 - Knocked Up
    11/6 - Evan Almighty, About a Boy
    11/13 - Pride and Prejudice-gotta get something for the lady friends to watch
    12/11 - The Bourne Ultimatum
    12/18 - Eastern Promises - blind buy, given how I liked History of Violence

    It's a blind buy, I kinda liked Bruce Almighty, and Steve Carell is also one funny dude.

    But I'll be looking for sale prices and that Amazon 10 percent discount. Same for everything else.

    Steve is indeed one of the funniest guys around these days but I just found zero appeal in this lame-o looking version...heck watching the trailers, ya pretty much get to see the whole movie. :(

    BSG and Heroes alone is enough to make that a killer list. Especially Battlestar Galactica. That is one that would have got me to plunk down $250 for a player if I did not already have one.

    These were already well known. It's the other releases past BSG that is generating the purpose behind this thread. That list is pretty anemic if you ask me in terms of quality releases. In order to gain more market share they need more than just a couple of a rentals and maybe a buy. Universal's problem is their best titles are not under their control. Spielberg really has them by the balls.
