This list also sort of doubles as movies enjoyed while growing up in the 80's-90's. Some of these have already even been given the HD DVD treatment, but as of yet have not been slated for blu ray. Maybe some have been repeated by others already too.

Spartacus (Has a HD DVD version already, is a dramatic classic film that has stuck with me just as strongly as Ben-hur and Ten commandments, it has that similar epic classic dramatic feel to it)

Willow Special Edition (Classic Fantasy movie of late 80's, with a few memorable creature effects. George Lucas was a producer on this film.)

Waterworld (Has a HD DVD version already, it was the most expensive movie undertaking of 1995, I did love the explosions and the plot premise)

Daylight (Has a HD DVD version already, the Sylvester Stallone movie where he rescues people from a collapsed tunnel. Similar kind of thrilling intensity and theme as his Cliffhanger movie which has already made its blu ray debut.)

Dragonheart (Has a HD DVD version already, a rare occurrence with Dennis Quaid in a fantasy movie and a CGI Dragon voiced by Sean Connery. Was pretty campy at times but it had a few redeeming touching moments.

Masters of the Universe (Based very loosely on the He-Man franchise, very campy, but strangely enjoyable. It is one of those 80's action sci-fi movies that used colored "laser guns")

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (Replete with Disney's family movie charm. I also loved the special effects used in this movie to simulate the kids having to look at their world from a miniaturized point of view. And I would love to see them remastered.)

Super Mario Bros. (Based ridiculously loosely on the Super Mario Bros. video game. It was extremely Campy, but I enjoyed the heck out of it as a kid on the verge of becoming a teenager. There was much frenetic activity throughout the movie so sometimes you missed out on certain background details. So a blu ray version that makes those colorful details pop would be welcome to me.)

Heat(Pacino & Deniro) has one of the best shoot out scenes ever. Great movie all around.

Yes, Sunset Boulevard! It and "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?" are classics in this house.

Good list. I would especially like to see "Moonstruck" in Blu-ray.

I hope that it is a good transfer of "Juliet of the Spirits." The cinematograhy greatly influenced my videography.

Remains of the Day? Good luck with that. I'd like to have it too, but only if enough care was taken of it to do it right. I guess the PTB decided that Gosford Park didn't have broad enough appeal and didn't need to be put to BD with any care because the blu of Gosford Park is really, really bad. And it has none--that's right--none of the special features available on the DVD. So I'd only want Remains of the Day if the studios realized that enough people whose taste isn't defined by Transformers and The Hulk are actually into Blu-Ray. The detail of the inside of the stately home shown in RotD would look beautiful if done right. I'd buy it, too.

The Ginger Snaps trilogy. It'd be nice if they included some bonus features for the first movie--the American DVD has NOTHING in the way of extra material.

Soylent Green, the remake, coming soon to a theater near you.

and Terminatrix: which is Terminator vs. know, Terminator ends in machines taking over the world and in the Matrix machines already are in charge and the insurgent geeks try to bring back people who live Arnold fights against Reeves! Doesn't it sound cool? They even used the same futuristic choppers in both movies so it would be a seamless movie. Or it could be called TerminX ;)

I spend my day thinking of new movie concepts...sorry...

I just finished "The Searchers" on blu-ray and it was simply gorgeous... and it wetted my taste for more high-quality blu-ray releases presented 16x9 (1.78:1). Granted, "The Searchers" was photographed in Vistavision (1.50:1 negative but generally projected 1.85:1 in the US and 1.66:1 in Europe), which is probably still the finest widescreen format of all. I can only hope other Vistavision films, "North by Northwest", "Vertigo", "White Christmas", are presented 1.78:1 when they get the blu-ray treatment... And, again this is a personal preference, I'd even like to see more 16x9 versions of some 2.35:1 features. I don't want to rehash the 20 yr old debate on this issue, but I do think the letterboxing of most (not all) feature films when presented on an HDTV is distracting and unnecessary.
