Eight months ago, we looked at the HD DVD vs. Blu-ray format war through the lens of the Netflix Top 10 in each category. At that time, Million Dollar Baby topped the HD DVD charts, and Crash led the way in Blu-ray.
The charts look very much the same today.
1. Crash; 2. Mr. & Mrs. Smith; 3. Million Dollar Baby; 4. Finding Neverland; 5. The Da Vinci Code; 6. Syriana; 7. Click; 8. Hitch; 9. The Devil Wears Prada; 10. Failure to Launch
1. Million Dollar Baby; 2. Ray; 3. Syriana; 4. Failure to Launch; 5. The Break-Up; 6. Batman Begins; 7. Firewall; 8. The Lake House; 9. Rumor Has It; 10. Ocean's Twelve
I don't know a single person with either a Blu-ray disc player or its HD DVD rival. Anyone want to come to the defense of either format?
See you around Christmas with another update.
