We had a hard time coming up with the number one title this week, in fact it's been a long time since we had a line up this pathetic. The other thing that's new this week is that for the first time in over two months HD DVD has more titles than Blu-ray, and for the first time in a month, Blu-ray has less than ten titles. Regardless, unless you're into Japanimation or old Charlton Heston movies, the only mentionable titles are for HD DVD in the way of comedies. Sure, not everyone agrees that comedies deserve the HD treatment, but we do, and we can't wait to check out one of our all time favorites from Paramount this week; Old School. HD DVD also has a few day and date comedies as well with Mr Bean's Holiday and Hot Rod. We are going to appreciate next week even more after this, while we wait for some solid catalog titles from Fox as well as the latest installment of Pirates from Disney. And at the same time the red camp can look forward to the first season of Battlestar.
HD DVD 343
