When his absent-minded father gives young Billy Pelzer (Zach Galligan) a new pet, he warns him to abide by three rules. The rules get broken, of course, and the pet--a cute Mogwai named Gizmo--unwittingly gives birth to the vicious Gremlins who proceed to terrorise the town.

I'm interested in knowing how they release these on blu-ray when - I'm presuming in HD. Surely they weren't filmed in that higher definition when filmed in 1984? Does anybody know what they do?

HD is a term for digital film, 35mm celluloid film has always been better definition than digital film which is why older films will look fantastic in HD transfers if it was made well on the 35mm format.

Look at the DVD beaver website and Dambusters for example. It's only as technology moves on that you'll start to see the results being exactly the same for definition, shortly technology will surpass 35mm film but either way when shown on a decent screen it's already more than enough to look perfect. (unless you go to an Odeon, in which case it will probably be out of focus).

[edit] Blu-ray offers just under 2K horizontal resolution and 35mm is capable of 4-6k. So the original film is actually downgraded to make a blu-ray disc.

Wow, great explanation - thanks so much for this. Gives me far more confidence buying old films on blu-ray.

besides being on almost every Christmas this is a classic - and worthy of having on Blu-Ray...heat added

Good price for a classic film voted hot :thumbsup:

You're welcome although just because they can make a good transfer it doesn't mean they will. Some companies are still putting out poor transfers to sell you an all singing, all dancing, remastered cut further down the line so it's always best to read up on it first as plenty of folk are clued up enough to review them and let you know. DVD Beaver or blu-ray forums are good place to look.

Phoebe Cates in HD? *sigh* ;-)
