This Week in HD DVD: the final edition

This is the curtain call, there is no more to see. Wipe the tears from your cheek fellow fanboys, for this will be final installment of This Week in HD DVD.

Toshiba and Microsoft no longer support the HD DVD format, so we'd feel guilty and a bit dirty to continue our own support of a format that deserves to simply rest in peace. You will be missed HD DVD. That's a fact. You were strong and wise, but you were unable to gather support by the masses and as a result, you passed at a young age. This is it, the final curtain call. Goodbye HD DVD and goodbye to This Week in HD DVD. We promised we wouldn't cry ...

This Week in HD DVD: depressing edition

We don't think you need anymore reminding that HD DVD is getting its bum whooped lately. Heck, just take a look at our HD DVD tag and you'll see a solid dozen stories reporting about its eventual downfall. So, we guess our general negative feelings and bummy attitude is warranted. We're depressed about this HD DVD stuff and depressed that our This Week in HD DVD column may be coming to an untimely end. That's it then. No golden foil from us. Here are your HD DVD releases for this week. If anyone still cares.

This Week in HD DVD: amateurs gone wild edition

With news that Netflix will dropping the HD DVD format later this year, we've been bit bummed over at camp HD DVD today. So, in an effort to raise our spirits, we invited any upcoming HD DVD to join our new release party, laugh a bit, share a few stories and drink our sorrows away. But our plan backfired. Only two new HD DVDs RSVP'ed for this week's party leaving us to question where our HD DVD supporters have gone. Then we noticed that one of this week's new releases is none other than the girls from Girls Gone Wild and in full HD. But we soon realized that they were a yawn fest and had zero substance (we aren't that shallow), so now our plan is to go into hibernation until next week. Maybe then we'll be treated to a surprise HD DVD release party with some 30 attendees. A man can dream.

This Week in HD DVD: deadly catch edition [update]

Update: Well we'll be darned. Both Elizabeth and Naked Beneath the Water also release this week to HD DVD. Oops on our behalf and yay for those who wanted HD DVD choices.

With Toshiba's Super Bowl commercial ending up being a not so entertaining waste of millions of dollars, we figured we had new HD DVDs to look forward to this week. Then we noticed that by saying new HD DVDs (plural) we are sort of bending the truth. You see, there are multiple HD DVDs releasing this week, it's just that they come packed together in one box. Deadliest Catch: Season 3 is the only new release this week, but it does come packed full of multiple HD DVD goodness and the show isn't all that bad either. It's actually mildly entertaining. So, Deadliest Catch is your only HD DVD choice this week, but you have other life choices to make anyway. Choices like, "what will you eat for supper tonight?" and "how much bleach is really necessary to make your whites white?"
  • HD DVD Movie Releases: February 5th
  • Deadliest Catch: Season 3
  • Elizabeth: The Golden Age
  • Naked Beneath the Water

This Week in HD DVD: millionaire edition

Bringing an end to January's HD DVD releases are three new discs that aren't blockbusters, but are dandy in their own right. Nothing overly special really. Fear not though, because in the weeks to come we promise bigger blockbusters, more excitement and an HD DVD dunking tank as well. So, while we wait for the blockbusters to appear and the dunk tank to arrive we can all huddle around the television this Super Bowl Sunday to watch a 2.7 million dollar HD DVD commercial. It has a strong possibility of actually being entertaining and is guaranteed to put a hole in Toshiba's wallet. Either way, it's a win-win for everyone. Here are this week's HD DVD releases.
  • HD DVD Movie Releases: January 29th
  • Dispatch: Zimbabwe - Live at Madison Square Garden
  • King of California
  • Strauss: Die Fledermaus

This Week in HD DVD: our method edition

It's HD DVD Monday and that means we're dishing out this week's new HD DVD releases all of which are now available in both low fat and sugar free versions. Though, we only have two new HD DVD releases available for consumption; Channels and Method Man: Live from the Sunset Strip. And if by chance those two titles don't get your salivators salivating, we have open bar and complimentary mini sausage hor'dourves from 7-9:00PM. Our research tells us that an intoxicated consumer is an HD DVD purchasing consumer. So, we're sure we'll be seeing you later on this evening and remember to bring your wallet.

  • Method Man: Live from the Sunset Strip

This Week in HD DVD: the ten edition

This week we've got some rather bad news and other news that's either good or bad depending on how you want to take it. And first up, the bad news. We're sad to report that there's only one new release this week and, as you can see below, it's the movie The Ten. Yawn, yawn, yawn ... Moving right along, we also thought we'd share with you the good / bad news (depending on how you want to take it) that most HD DVD related goods are seeing a discount. In light of the recent pro Blu-ray news as of late, Toshiba has slashed the prices on their HD DVD players and discounted HD DVD movie titles. While we don't believe this discounting to be official, it's quite widespread and is happening all over.

Good or bad, that's the latest HD DVD news and this week's new movie release. Enjoy, be happy and eat some deliciously moist cheesecake. Because cheesecake rocks and makes us smile.

This Week in HD DVD: it's the noise edition

Even though the HD DVD format was thrown a devastating blow this week (courtesy of our friends at Warner), we're moving forward with our head high and bringing you new HD DVD releases. No bad HD DVD news will stop us from publishing This Week in HD DVD. None! And it's a good thing too seeing that the director's cut of Zodiac and The Pianist release this week. Two movies we're sure most will enjoy. We do have one question though. Who thought it to be a good idea to make a sequel to White Noise? Really? We can smell a direct to HD DVD release from a mile away.
  • HD DVD Movie Releases: January 8th

This Week in HD DVD: polar freeze edition

This week's HD DVD list is kinda minimal. It's also kinda lackluster, but that's not to say that some won't find the list below super exciting. Because we are keen to the fact that there are a lot of Queen, Battlestar Galactica and polar bear fans out there. But we were just hoping for some big blockbuster releases, you know ... like Superbad on HD DVD. But no, it's a Sony distributed movie which equals Blu-ray exclusive. Meh to that. Anyhoo, your HD DVD releases for this week are below and be sure to watch out for next week. It'll be jam packed full of releases and we've got two words for you ... Harry Potter.
  • HD DVD Movie Releases: December 4th
  • Arctic Tale
  • Battlestar Galactica: Season One
  • Queen Rock Montreal & Live Aid

This Week in HD DVD: Anchorman game plan edition

New HD DVD movie content will be releasing in less than 24 hours and that means you'll need a game plan recruit. Your game plan should include things like your movie preferences, what snacks you require, how you'll watch said content and who you want to experience HD greatness with. Oh, we almost forgot. You'll also need to know which new HD DVD movies are releasing this week. Silly us. So here you go kids, cross off the very last bullet point on your HD DVD game plan, because this week HD DVD brings ...
  • HD DVD Movie Releases: November 27th
  • Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy
  • Hot Rod
  • Mr. Bean's Holiday
  • Old School

This Week in HD DVD: Turkey tremors edition

Not too much going on in HD DVD land this holiday week. With both Thanksgiving and Black Friday going down, not too much focus is put onto purchasing new HD DVDs. Hence the rather limited list below. But, if you're a fan of Tremors, Star Trek or musicals, then it's entirely possible your HD DVD fix will get fulfilled tomorrow. But we can't guarantee that these high-def releases will fulfill your hunger for turkey and mashed potatoes ... that's something you'll have to work on fulfilling on your own.
  • HD DVD Movie Releases: November 20th
  • Mendelssohn: A Midsummer Night's Dream
  • Star Trek: The Original Series - The Complete First Season
  • Tremors

That's not to say that some won't find Pride & Prejudice and Ultimate Force super exciting, but we know you can't go wrong with Pitt or Shrek.
