    The new transfer they did for 5 disc edition Bladerunner looks amazing.

    You could get on Amazon, just make sure you get this new 45th Anniversary edition that came out in November:

    http://www.amazon.com/Sound-Three-Di...5966335&sr=1-1

    It has the "3 disc" version, which means you also get a DVD copy in the package (handy for car or the bedroom or kids room or something).

    They probably have it at Wal-Mart -- that's where I got mine.

    But it is true that it all comes down to the quality of the conversion. If somebody just takes an existing DVD print and makes a blu-ray, it won't be better. But if they re-master from the original film, blu-ray can be breathtakingly better.

    The Sound of Music is a good example of this. Anybody that can't see the difference there may as well get a seeing eye dog.

    depends on the movie. i could tell with Top Gun, but a more recent movie, Independence Day was converted over poorly.

    that's really what it boils down to. the conversion.

    most people can't.

    it helps to have a trained eye.

    I can't wait for Star Wars. I hope the Beatles films get the Blu (meanie) Ray treatment.

    You haven't watched it on the right tv.
