HD-DVD movies flood to the UK

Blade Runner, 2001: Space Odyssey and Goodfellas - not only three of the best films ever made, but three of the 161 HD-DVD titles that will get a UK launch before the end of 2006.

Also on the menu are modern blockbusters such as The Matrix trilogy (pictured above), and a massive 14-disc Superman Ultimate Collector’s Edition.

With rival format Blu-ray only touting approximately half that number, it’s not completely beaten. The HD-DVD line-up flatters to deceive in some areas, with such ‘classics’ as Scary Movie 4, Doom, and Paris Hilton’s big screen debut, House of Wax.

With all that lot to get through, grab the popcorn and join us on the sofa for a movie marathon when we get our first HD-DVD player to test.
