Most HD movies are upscaled because making HD versions would involve going back to the masters, which = money. Especially with special effects involved, because a lot of the time you would have to redo some of the special effects. However, there are tons of movies that were made with HD in mind, the recent Star Wars movies as an example. However, I'll be happy once we start seeing more HD-DVDs on the market. For the newer movies at least. And if the stand-alone is only $200, I can't see not picking it up.
