    First of all the name of the movie is “Water Horse” not “Water HOSE” ;-)
    And ALL of the movies listed under the Playstation Store ARE NOT available in HD, or for rental. They are Standard Def Purchases.

    Haha whoops, my bad!

    I will talk with Tyler about that, since he has better access to those releases then I do.

    THe PSN store opened with 57 HD titles, and has since only added 2. :(

    Also would be curious to compare if the films are found on others. I know, for example, a few on the AppleTV list already exist on the Xbox 360 list.

    That would be interesting but it would also be alot of hard work :) You also have to factor in the fact that titles are also de listed on the XBLVM and presumably the PSN store (Possibly all Digital Retailors) as well due to the contracts that are drawn up for them.
