Thanks dfergie, that's helpful as I was contemplating downgrading to HD Essentials, but that's a list that's well worth the $10:

- ET
- Jaws
- Close Encounters
- Bullitt
- Network (underrated)
- Mutiny on the Bounty

and several others which I didn't mention simply because I already caught them recently (like "Cool Hand Luke")
