Universal has shuffled back the planned release dates for three of their upcoming HD DVD movies for unknown reasons. Backdraft, previously scheduled for September 12, is now slated for  a week later on September 19,  while Army of Darkness & Fast Times at Ridgemont High also slide a week from October 3 to October 10. They've also apparently given up on the Dual-format nomenclature, following Warner in calling them Combo versions. A name change is nice we guess, but we'd really like to see a price drop that brought them in line with other HD DVD releases, paying extra for future proofing is getting really tired.
