Universal joining Blu-ray bandwagon in the summer

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Universal Studios, once Hollywood's top backer of the doomed HD DVD video format, will soon release all its new videos on the victorious Blu-ray rival at the same time as its standard DVDs.

The studio is set to announce Thursday that the program will kick off in the summer with the recent box office flop "Doomsday."

Universal's Blu-ray strategy includes plans to release about 40 titles in the second half of the year.

When it's done, I want to one day own all four seasons of Battlestar Galactica on Blu-Ray. They got out S1 on HD, but now it's time to switch. Get with it, Universal!

Wow, we wrote that at exactly the same time... Did you have the same dream as me last night..? :)

I'm not knocking your choice in films, honest. The thing is I've only ever seen really, really, really bad reviews of this film.

Lots of people seem desparate for it though. So my question is: is this because it's a great movie or is it more because it's a great HD showcase?

I'm more interested in LOTR, SW or Indiana Jones (just my opinion) - for the films themselves and also to show off to my non-HD friends...

Where the **** is my ******* Transformers Blu-ray, Paramount?!!

Seriously, I hope they hurry up and release this. Although I have this gut feeling they won't be doing so until the sequel is nearly upon us...
