    Pretty sure. Might be tweaked a bit...

    Oh, and I don't think it's the whole sets. This is basically the marquee 'greatest hits' package.

    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.

    From what I'm reading, it's the same thing. . .with a few more extras on top of the new transfers. I'll probably have to buy it. "Have to".

    EDIT: **** me. Yeah, I'm buying it...

    Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) - w/3D version of the film....

    I agree...to a point. The fully loaded sets are really lovely. But for us folks in the new century, with fancy motorcars and such, a 'best of' classic monsters blu will really hit the spot.

    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.

    Honestly, if the transfer is good, they're amazing. I have The Searchers on Blu-Ray and it blew my mind. The Star Wars ones look like they were filmed today. It's quite impressive if the transfer is done as well as it can be done these days. The studios generally seem to do amazing jobs on the classic movies that people care about too. Not just in picture quality, but in sound as well.

    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.
