After my usual Friday night steak (sirloin - thick as a brick - rare) and claret (Ch. Semeillan Mazeau 2000) I'm going to be enjoying either 'The Bourne Identity' HD DVD or 'Wild Things' on BD. Depends on the missus.

I hope she takes her time deciding, as I'm really enjoying the Cricket.

Have a nice weekend, everyone.

ps. Please join in on a regular basis with this thread.

What films are you watching?

On which format?

With whom?

Are you having a 'special evening'?

Was the film any good?

Was the high def any good?

Oh, and importantly, what did you have for tea? :D

SW

pps. Mods/everyone - This is a (hopefully) human and humourous way to bring all high def fans together, whether they're HD DVD, BD or dual format (or download/Sky HD for that matter). Please keep fanboy comments out of it, and a sense of humour close at hand.

That is soooo funny. I just watched "WILD THINGS - UNRATED" on BluRay. Played fine. Enjoyed the film very much and thought the picture and sound was also fine (if not reference quality).

Also watched "STREETS OF FIRE" on HD-DVD too. Super film, picture and sound.

DENISE RICHARDS and DIANE LANE in one night ! :devil::thumbsup:

Tomorrow sometimes I'm gonna watch "THE ROCK" on BluRay.:clap:

The last two or three overs were quite exciting when Mascarenas started tonking the ball around. At least he's cemented his place in the 20/20 team for the World Championship with that performance.

BTW, whilst 'Wild Things' was wonderful (as ever) I thought the picture was soft. The sound, whilst being clear,was a little flat.

I'll post more later.

Cheers. At least it looks like we put up a fight.

It was soft in places but I think that is the way it was filmed. Forget what a good "twisty" move it is.:smashin:

Last Night I watched Happy Gilmore on HD-DVD, big picture improvement over the SD version, Sound isn't that much of an improvement. Extra's are down to deleted scenes (nothing special there) and outtakes which are quite funny!
I love this movie and it was great to see cult actors like Richard Keil, Carl Weathers in it. One of my fav Sandler Movies and great to have it in HD.

Tonight it's 'Shooter' which I don't know a fat lot about so may or may not be a pleasant suprise.

Format is HD DVD and will be on after 21.00 when all the soaps have finished.

Food will be a mushroom pasta which I'll cook while the soaps are on. I'm having a few bottles of beer while Mrs Sonic67 will be having white wine.

Last weekend I watched SHOOTER on HD dvd and thought it was very good .. both film and picture quality.

This weekend watched The Rock on blu-ray, which was SUPERB, and also watched Death Proof starring Kurt Russell albeit SD dvd as no word on any HD release ... Death Proof was also very good, but only because of Kurt :cool:

ooohh.. there's a title I was wondering about getting or not. You'll have to give your thoughts on it after you've watched it.

For me it's either going to be Reign over Me on Blu-ray which has just come through today or it's going to be something of the mrs choice.. thats when I start worrying.. cocktail or topgun most probably... :suicide:

Before any of that happens I gotta wait till blasted Eastenders finishes.. :boring:

Darn it.. means there's now another film to add to my collection..:suicide: Subscribing to this threads going to be very expensive I think..:rolleyes::)

Just watched Hot Fuzz and The Thing on HD. Freakin' sweet!!

Hot fuzz was really enjoyable, only seen it on Standard Def though but not sure whether it was worth the upgrade to HD or not. Think if I'd not seen it before-hand I'd probably have got it already. Might just wait till the price drops some and grab it in a sale or something.

Oh.. and in my case it was'nt either Top Gun or Cocktail the other night... it was Dirty dancing...:suicide: Still my turn at the weekend.. time for some horror me thinks.. :devil:

ive got hot fuzz coming in the next few days on HD-DVD looking forward to that:thumbsup:

I've seen some great titles on HD but not alas tonight.... TMNT was my poison. :oops:

There is nothing I can think of to recommend this, I was a fan of the original cartoon, and remember seeing the first film, but honestly avoid this, if you weren't already. :D

it wasn't even that visually impressive. Nor was there any thing good to say about the sound track. I was about to turn it off, but then it seemed the creators got as bored with it as I was and it seemed to come to an abrupt and pointless end by it's self.. :suicide:

I'm not sure how much longer I can put off watching the last episode of heroes.... :rotfl: i just don't want it to end. ;)

Widely Regarded as the absolutle pinicle of HD Picture quality. 5 Star Picture Quality, 4 1/2 star Audio quality, loads of extras, a must own disc.

At highdefdigest.com it's the only disc on Blu-ray or HD-DVD that they have given 5 stars to the whole package.

I guess the only thing that might put you off is that it's a combo, perfect way to show your friends the difference between HD-DVD and DVD though and to get them involved.

Back on topic My Evenings viewing has been 3 episodes of the exellent heros, which is in a fantastic HD-DVD box set, highly recommended.

Unfortunatly dinner wasn't quite Gourmet as I had a KFC 2 peice chicken meal with some added popcorn chicken :D
