I loved this film in the eighties and hopefully this will be a better transfer than the recent Ghostbusters Blu-ray.

It is better than the remastered dvd version but not as good as it could have been in my humble opinion.

Here is a link for a professional review.

Some people i know love it and other's think it could have been better.

I've heard they are remaking gremlins just hope they don't screw it up

With a very few exceptions, there's not much point in Blu-Ray for a movie of this age.
Charging the same as a new release is nothing short of a rip off.

That first part is utter nonsense, I own quite a fwe older blu rays or HD-DVD where the pic quality is vastly improved.

I agree. For example, the Michael Keaton batman movies are an amazing transfer.
Saying that, I also agree it'll be a rip off if the transfer is anything like Ghostbusters, which was really disappointing!

the ghostbusters Blu-Ray was awful. Really showed the grain up where it was not remastered correctly. DVD is much better (although it pains me to say it)

For your information, if the remastering and transfer to Blu-Ray process are done well, the video should be of top quality.
35mm film and cameras have a resolution way beyond the 1920 x 1080 Full HD standard. :thumbsup:

The grain is supposed to be there and will not be detrimental to the quality of the picture. The actual transfer and resulting PQ of Ghostbusters is very good and generally accepted to be how the movie should look.
As is often the case, the presents of grain is misinterpreted as making the overall PQ poor quality. With all due respect, if this is the impression you have, you're missing the point of high definition.
The DVD you refer too has probably had a lot of noise reduction applied to it in the remastering stage so, will look 'cleaner'. This is just one facet of picture quality and the removal of the grain, takes away the feel of the movie.

Total ****.

You wanted your BluRay and HDMI on 1080p to leave your picture silky smooth and grainless, did you?

"DVD is much better"? That's like saying my Playstation graphics are so much better than PS3...

It's not materially possible. Not possible. Not even 'perceptional.' Just not possible. Period.

So the point of high definition is to have a grainy movie that has a good 'feel' about it??
