Do you think there should be a thread somewhere to just discuss HD movies/media?

I think that we need a forum. I've asked CheapyD for it but nothing yet...If you want to create a thread go for it...I figured the Blu-Ray and HD DVD stickies on the PS3 and XBOX360 would suffice for now.

i think the problem with the ps3 thread is the guy who made it is banned so he can't update the OP or topic

i don't mind updating it weekly with new releases/deals unless someone else wants to do it

Was he perma-banned?

I can take over the BD thread if needed.
(oh wait, Rsigley might be better, let him do it)

You're right, I think the BD and HD DVD threads are enough.

I think we should keep it open until the PORN Industry decides what to do. They must be upset right now that they weren't the behind the scenes force that helped choose a winner like they did in the DVD vs VHS war.

I also wouldn't mind having a list of HD imports that are still exclusive in terms of being out there that BR doesn't have yet. Basically we wait to update when this changes.
I'm thinking of "Renaissance" and "Brotherhood Of the Wolf" for one. Anyone want to list some others, preferably Lossless.

Here's a pretty long comprehensive list of imports...which one's Blu-Ray doesn't have yet...well that you have to figure out for yourself...I know I had Mr. & Mrs. Smith before Blu-Ray had it...also Equilibrium.

Is that using a two tin cans and a piece of string connection ?

I kid, but 8 hours is crazy, I'm guessing that isn't broadband.


Ok, maybe not 8 hours, but it takes at least 2 hours on my 4mbps Cable Modem.

Linkin, blu-ray still doesn't have Equilibrium, which makes me a very sad panda.

He isn't permabanned, but he'll be gone like a month. Someone else can start a new thread if you want.

I'd say yes.

The PS3 has a Blu-Ray thread, the Xbox 360 has a HD-DVD thread and this thread has served it's purpose.

If we can get someone like dallow (or someone else typically on point) to edit the main post in the BD thread, closing this up is fine with me. As long as it's stickied with Ice2Dragon as the OP, though, I don't see a point.
