Think it depends on how old - got to remember, the 'classic' touch of some movies e.g. the godfather rely on those dark film techniques..i watched that ish on Blu Ray and was like wtf?

it does enhance it, but the actual Blue-ray re issues are better.

Just get a PS3

I didn't see what the Godfather looked like on Blu-Ray yet, but I didn't think it would be that bad, Goomba. Coppolla's lighting techniques between dark and light were awesome.. something I thought Blu Ray would capture perfectly.

I've seen a few older flicks on BRD, and they looked unbelievably good. King of New York stands out as it was the first restored flick I watched. The audio wasn't spectacular, but it was improved. But the sharpness and quality? My GOD!

I also saw things like The Untouchables, A Clockwork Orange, and Coming to America... all unrealistically sharp.

I don't know. If you're a purist for the way movies used to look, you might be disappointed. But the new quality was welcome on a new television, that's for sure.
