This is, assuming, Blockbuster rents out HD-DVDs. I assume so!

Anyhow, I just got a new HD player and want to try it out. So if anyone could tell me some good movies that have made the jump to HD, I would love you forever.

    Only BluRay? What the shit.

    I'll try Hastings, maybe?

    Hastings might rent HD-DVD, but I'm not sure. They were talking about not for a while.


    Rent Planet Earth on HD-DVD. It's freakin beautiful.

    Also, give some thought to a Netflix subscription. They have a huge HD-DVD Library and they've saved me a ton of money.

    Goddamn it, no one in town rents HD-DVD movies. Hastings and BB do Blu-Ray, while Family Video only does vanilla DVD.

    So, tell me about Netflix!

    Netflix is fucking awesome.

    I don't know what they're HD-DVD/BRD selection is like, but they have a shit-ton of DVD's.

    I would go for the 3-at-a-time deal for ~$25/month. Depending on where you live, this'll get you a different movie to watch 4 nights out of the week.

    It's also great because they carry TV shows on DVD, so you can pretty much skip cable if you want.

    Agreed. I do a 2-at-a-time for $14. The turnaround time is 2 business days, so if I throw a movie in the mail Tuesday morning I've got the next one by Thursday. Never been longer than 2 days (except Sundays of course).

    You should be able to score a 2-week free trial to test it out, and if you're running Windows a download service comes with the membership. From what I can tell it's a bit limited but they have stuff like The Office if you just have an itch for something quick. No Mac support :(

    Edit: If you really churn through movies it's a great deal. At one point I did 12 dvds in a month, which is like a $1.15 per dvd.

    Here's another vouch for Netflix. No idea where you are, but here in SoCal, I can turn in a movie and get it usually next day, the day after at the latest. I also subscribe to the 3 movies at a time deal. There is also a 2 week free trial going on, so you have nothing to lose.

    Netflix operates the same as Gamefly, so the closer you are to their distribution center the faster the turnaround is. In Cali it's ~2 business days, in the midwest it can take 3-4.

    Still worth it IMO, you save a shitload of money. And you can set up your queue so you can watch all those awesome old movies you never find at Blockbuster.

    Here's hoping it comes out right, and I support blockbuster online overall - I get 3 at a time, unlimited for $17.99 a month , and I can trade em in at the store for more free movies no extra charge and while I have those other movies my new movies are then on the way to me.
