HD Movies On Demand - Rogers
I wonder if anyone has tried out the HDTV Movies On Demand on Rogers? It seems to be a pretty well-kept secret.
From Rogers On Demand Channel 100 --> All Movies --> HDTV
Clerks II, A Prairie Home Companion, Bad Santa, Bridget Jones' Diary, Hero, Resident Evil - Apocalypse, Take The Lead, The Notorious Bettie Page
Not a lot of choice, and $7.99 each (although many of us are "VIP" customers and get 10% off all ROD purchases) a bit pricey ... but, hey, it is genuine HD.
Everyone has different tastes, of course, but holy cow!, you might want to check out Hero with Jet Li. It's breath-takingly, jaw-droppingly, eye-poppingly awesome to look at. The special effects are like Matrix on steroids and it's a broodingly dark adventure that's just exquisitely shot.
For other tastes, Take the Lead with Antonio Banderas has some pretty sexy bits for a PG-13 "heart-warming" story. To each his own.
Way better than commercial TV and with pause, rewind, replay, definitely my preferred way to watch something.
