    I can't imagine the Blu-Ray will be much better. There's only so much you can do to a movie that came out before high def did, especially ones as old as the BttF trilogy.

    Why do people keep saying this? Some of the best looking Blu-rays are classic films. Every format shift is closer and closer to watching it straight from a pristine film copy (assuming they don't DNR the eff out of it)... Granted this is a 80s film trilogy so it's not like it'll get the attention to detail as say The Wizard of Oz or Gone with the Wind, but it could still look very very good.

    Maybe so, but they simply cannot hold a candle to a true Blu-Ray movie that was filmed in high def.

    It doesn;t work like that

    Would you say an IMAX film from the 80's was poor definition . . . ?

    It's all about how the transfer the film to HD. I needs to be a true convert from original 35MM masters to get good quality.

    I could get epic technical but won't . . . .

    1) Because they don't have a clue about how movies are made or how they end up on home video

    2) They don't actually watch much older stuff in HD

    3) Its the internet, people are damn well entitiled to post authoritive statements without actually knowing what they are talking about.

    I've just recently rented B2TF Part 1 and 2 this week. I still need to see Part 3.

    I don't think I'l buy B2TF on Blu-Ray until i get a PS3 or Blu-Ray, I love this film.

    I've only ever seen The Phantom on Blu-Ray. The picture and sound was better of course, but it still paled in comparison to Avatar, the only true Blu-Ray I've been able to watch so far.
