Yes they removed them, but somebody posted them here.:Krobar said:Maybe it's just me but it seems to have been removed.
Same here, i was or am tempted to get one from the US but can wait until Nov; i thinkalpha10 said:I'm getting very excited now......
Still not sure whether to take the risk and start buying HD-DVD disks from the US in the hope I'll be able to play them when the UK players arrive, so I've got something to watch when it all arrives.......
I tried the same thing: "it's too hot for movies", "summer is for going out and about", "enjoy the Sun" were all phrases I used to try and convince myself not to buy a HD DVD player now. My resolve lasted about 7 days...now a XA1 owneri must keep telling myself summers for cycling (as i am a keen cyclist) and winters for watching
Anything shot on film can be in HD, with film having a much higher definition than HD-DVD to start with. I notice you have SkyHD, most SkyHD films look like decent SD DVD, HD-DVD apparently looks much better.Gae said:I'm as excited as the next person but here's my main concern. Will these older movies look that much different to the upscaled DVDs that some of us already have of them? I feel a lot happier to part with my money when the film is something new and originally shot in HD or at least when I know for certain the the quality is going to be stunning. Having send that, my HD copy of "Brother's Grimm" looks superb and I'm assuming that that is just a transferred film negative. I'd love to see the 1976 "King Kong" looking as good as it did when I first saw it in the flicks as an 11 year old. OK, so the films pretty naff, but there's a lot to say for nostalgia.
