I think one has tons more extras than the other, and slightly nicer packaging. Not sure if one of them is a US release only too?

Ordered it now anyway :? £14.99 (less 60p quidco) seems a good price :thumbsup:

Think the ultimate is US only and u get the animatrix and lots of extras but think they're SD and not HD. I'd be interested to know how HDDVD sales compare to Blu-ray now prices have dropped considerably .

Nice find!, I just got Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains the Same for £4.99 :thumbsup:. I've just checked HMV again today and it seems they have most of their better HD DVDs dropped down to £4.99 too so double check there first if you get the student discount.

Had to have Bullitt (HD DVD), Great..................HOT :thumbsup:

Thanks got
The Island (was on HMV for 4.99 but now increased)
Eyes Wide Shut (was on HMV for 4.99 but now increased)
The Ant Bully (was on HMV for 4.99 but now increased)
2001 (best price seen)

Still awaiting The Mummy to come down in price

RE Bullitt - was on HMV +10% quidco ten minutes ago

Ultimate Matrix is HD-DVD. I ordered mine from amazon.ca for £24 delivered (10 disc set).


Thanks for the info, OP. Cancelled my final Hut order for The Brave one, and also my dvd.co.uk order for 2001.

Thanks. Ordered Full Metal Jacket: Deluxe Edition.

Promised myself not to buy more HD DVD's but couldn't resist these prices. Smoking hot. Bought 8 more HD DVD's.

I think I can resist The Matrix, but I should definitely investigate 2001 at that price.

Just went for the Matrix. Thanks

Any good HD DVD review sites? All seem to be related to US releases.

Are UK (European) releases the same as US due to the fact that HD is region free?
Or do the US get better extras as usual?

I use this review site:- dvdtalk.com/rev…=50

Are there any better ones?

cheers for posting that, just order two more bargin price hd-dvds.. got loads of hd films now

I tend to use hddvd.highdefdigest.com/ though I wouldn't know if it's better as such.

As far as i'm aware most are the same, except for the odd title like Pan's Labyrinth and Terminator 2. Depends if the rights are owned by different studios in European/American territories.

lol 3 times in a row for that site!

Ha i was just bout to put link to that site too:-D

Thanks for the post OP.

Anyone who hasn't ordered yet: Play.com voucher 'experience08' still works for an extra 5% off! & don't forget Quidco!

Funny how 'The Island' doesn't seem to be reviewed anywhere???

Excellent, at last Goodfellas for £4.99.

From what I;ve read on the hddvd.highdefdigest.com site, they are pretty much the same except generally UK releases tend to be better (better quality transfer, or more extras).
I guess this is because they are usually released at a later date... works in our favour for once!

Cheers ordered Matrix, Goodfellas, 2001 & Full metal Jacket

Probably because it didn't get released Stateside.
Just spotted your avatar, is that the little minx Alizee? :thumbsup:

The Island is sold out it seems

For those who are buying Full Metal Jacket get the Deluxe edition as its better picture quality and also comes with some extras.

anyone know of a good, cheap HD - DVD player ?

Cheers to op, just off to gamestation to pick up a 360 hd dvd now.

just a quick note to say code experience08 gets a further 5% off, I just used it for matrix, only 75p off, but every little helps! might be good if you gonna buy loads

cheers op! finally picked up tmnt having missed it at the hut!!

No they don't, but you may be able to still get your money back if you've not opened it, which i'm giessing may be the case if like most you've ordered a lot of cheap HD dvd's and yet to watch most??

I ordered it just over a week ago for £30 but deliberatley hadn't viewed it in case it dropped quickly. I rang them a while ago saying i received it 7 days ago (as they have a returns policy that allows you to return an unwanted item within 7 days of receipt) and rather than return that and re-ordering, can they credit the difference to my account.

They said no, gave me a returns auth number for the first order, for me to send back, and i re-ordered it a the new price, so i'm chuffed.
