Has anyone seen Superman in HD on TMNHD?

No Superman in HD on TMN but a lot of low budget Canadian made features........some are really not that bad.

I am disappointed to see that "The Prestige" will premiere but no HD and to add to it, not even in widescreen format , it seems.
I was looking forward to see this movie on HD.

Movie Central finally posted their August schedule... Of the list of 13 movies Hugh highlighted in the first post, Movie Central is showing barely half of those in HD (and then, only if you include September 1st). Here's how it breaks down (number in parenthesis is the TomatoMeter number from Rotten Tomatoes (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/)):
MC HD: Grudge 2, The (11%)
Man Of The Year -- Sept. 1st (21%)
Open Season (48%)
Running With Scissors (29%)
School For Scoundrels (25%)
Snakes On A Plane (69%)
MC SD only: Little Miss Sunshine (92%)
My Super Ex-Girlfriend (41%)
Stranger Than Fiction (74%)
Thank You For Smoking(86%)
Catch A Fire (76%)
Anybody notice a trend there?
As per usual, Movie Central doesn't come close to matching TMN in catalogue depth. Even worse, Movie Central continues their aversion to quality movies. Here's that list again, sorted from best to worst by TomatoMeter:
Little Miss Sunshine - SD (92%)
Thank You For Smoking - SD (86%)
Catch A Fire - n/a (76%)
Stranger Than Fiction - SD (74%)
Snakes On A Plane - HD (69%)
Shortbus - n/a (64%)
Open Season - HD (48%)
My Super Ex-Girlfriend - SD (41%)
Running With Scissors - HD (29%)
School For Scoundrels - HD (25%)
Man Of The Year - HD (21%)
Grudge 2, The - HD (11%)
Zoom - HD (2%)
Top six--the only ones over 50%--only one will be aired by Movie Central in HD. Of the top 8, only two. Bottom five? All of 'em. :mad:
Not surprising if one considers that MC is now run and programmed out of the East (not a slam against the East, just saying they don't have to actually watch the content on the channel they're running). MC doesn't seem to even bother trying--another thread indicated that MC *never* gets the HD version of a Disney movie. Combine that lack of effort with their apparent allergy to quality programming, and the result is a pathetic schedule. Simply pathetic.
Where's TMN West? Anybody?

I agree... Movie Central HD is a sham. Someday when competition arrives we can ditch them.
update: The film Farce of the Penguins, originally confirmed as available in high definition, is only available in standard definition
The movie will be replaced with November on Aug 18th and 22nd. After that it will be replaced by Grizzly Rage.
