Was just about to check thaat side of things out. Thanks for saving me a job - rep added :thumbsup:

store specific... seen about 5 of these deals on here (HMV Blu-ray for £5), cold.

This probably sounds stupid, how do they make the old films HD? Surely they were just filmed with whatever they had back then, not HD? When these old films are released on blu-ray have they just been touched up or something and is it really noticeable over the DVD version?

Yours Sincerely

Clueless

not an expert on this, but i'm pretty sure that 35mm film is of a much higher resolution than of HD anyway, so it doesnt matter if it was shot back then, in can still look brilliant once transfered using a high-res scanner.

Oh and I have this on HD-DVD, it looks brilliant, really breathes more life into the film.

Thanks, will have a look tomorrow in my local HMV!

Having designed some hi res scanners (or Telecine machines) myself in the past that's basically how they do it.

Even when you blow up a good 35mm film to the equivalent of 2500 lines (more than twice as good as current Hi-Def) you can't quite see the film grain.

went to 2 stores in central london none of them have it for £5
Only for £14.99 or two for £25

The longer version has been shown SKY in HD a few times lately. Got it on my Sky planner as the moment.:thumbsup:
This film still gives me the creeps after all these years. I don't like to watch it alone - those creepy twins errrgh.

Definetly store specific. I checked 2 stores in my area and 14.99. Cold
