I'll run through the ones that I have at the mo:
King Kong - As it was free I cant complain really. Video quality is excellent in parts, but not as much of a flagship for hd-dvd as you'd expect. Extra features are piss-poor, the whole U-Control thing is just badly implemented generally. I want a menu with special features, not just picture-in-picture stuff that you cant hear over the movie soundtrack.
Riddick - Best example of a HD exprience that i've seen at the moment. Picture quality is amazing, and its the only one thus far that's managed to stop my friends bitching about not being able to see any difference over DVD. Top marks. Dubious quality film though, at least for some
Batman Begins - Excellent transfer, generally good quality throughout and the special features are seperated from the main movie, which is a good trend.
Mission Impossible 1-3 - As you would expect really, it shows what they can do with films from various eras when converting for the new formats. MI1 looks decent, MI2 is a step up from that, and MI3 looks superb. Decent special features on each of the discs, and not much in the way of U-Control stuff, which is a good thing.
Clerks 2 - Probably the most uneccesary HD movie I've bought, but its one of my favourite films from last year and was only £14 for the two-disc edition. Craploads of special features on a seperate hd-dvd, top marks for that. Picture quality is excellent but not really needed for something like this
Overall i'm loving it thus far, despite not being 'wowed' by King Kong at the start. What have you guys bought? Any recommendations?
