Which Titles Will Launch With Blu-Ray On May 23?

Blu-Ray Fifth ElementIn just a little over two months, Blu-Ray drops on us all. The Samsung BD-P1000 is the hardware player of choice on May 23rd, but what titles will you be able to throw into that player? Here is the none-too-exciting line-up:

  • Resident Evil Apocalypse
  • XXX
  • A Knight’s Tale
  • 50 First Dates
  • Hitch
  • House of Flying Daggers
  • The Fifth Element
  • The Last Waltz

Not exactly a killer launch as far as quality title’s go - we are guessing that Sony wants to provide a mixture of eye candy and mass appeal. Still, nothing says “No need to adopt Blu-Ray at launch” like this movie selection.

The only one of those that I will have to “upgrade” with eventually is The Fifth Element. Not the best movie ever but I did like it and it does look great. It was the first movie I wanted to try out on my HD tv to see how great the colors would look.

Other than that, I doubt I would be rebuying very many of my movies for a while.

The starz HD, hbo HD, and showtime HD channels show these movies so thats cool.
