But the marquee sets are packed. I don't want just a greatest hits thing.
Not that I have a blu-ray player either way.
They have cars with motors now? :O
Oh, but seriously, I keep asking this question and I don't know if I've gotten a satisfying answer. Does blu-ray notably improve the quality of movies as old as the Universal monster movies? Silents?
I tend to assume that it wouldn't make that much of a difference because of how old those movies are, but I could be wrong.
Dunno, just the dvd age in itself set off a golden age of sorts for early talkies and silents because it became worthy to restore these films since one could appreciate these transfers on DVD as opposed to VHS.
I am just curious to watch some of the older stuff from Criterion and Kino on blu-ray, but you know about me.
Agreed. All about a)the original negative they are working from and b) the transfer and how much time/money they intend on spending. The Universal classics were already cleaned up to beautiful effect, so they don't have a long way to go, and if they show 1/2 the love they spent on the dvd reissues...these will definitely be worth the price.
