I just got The Brave One the other day and the picture is stunning. VC1 can do wonders!
True but they got very lazy including WB on quality where as Blu was getting better and better with HD DVD's lossless/pcm somewhere around 24% and BD at 67% that made the difference for me.
I bought a HD DVD player for Serenity, Constantine, and Batman Begins. (By the way still have never bothered with the IME - just not for me I guess)
I just watched The Brave One and it did look quite good indeed!

I got my $800 Onkyo dvd player back in the spring/summer of 95. There were only 25 titles total out at the time. With the movie Twister being the headliner.

Edging out the small guy? Toshiba isn't small. Microsoft isn't small. The market has bought Blu-ray faster than HD DVD. Fact.

Why do people think Blu-ray wouldn't be a competitive market? That's like saying Toshiba did whatever they wanted with DVD and it wasn't a competitive market. Or Sony did what they wanted with CD and that wasn't competitive either.

Blu-ray is obviously the better format in the long run, with it's higher specs and stronger abilities. Not sure why it's sad that the best of the two formats won.
