Actually, the list is very misleading. Aside from a couple of titles (most notably the Police Story discs), all of the "upscaled" Blu-rays are superior to the SDVDs, including such problematic releases as Prison on Fire 1 & 2.

Really, the more I am looking at some of the comments posted in this thread, the clearer becomes that the people who are arguing that the Blu-rays do not represent an "upgrade" either do not own the SDVD AND the Blu-rays and have never compared them (and I do not mean looking at screencaptures), OR are watching their discs on very small screens/monitors (under 40').

One last time, upscaled SDVD content is not identical to SD content placed on Blu-ray.

Yeah I totally agree with you Pro-B.

But what I think is the most awkward (stupid?) is people who persist to look at their 720 x 480's DVDs on their 1920 x 1080's HD TVS and complain about the result, or claim that Blu Ray are better looking.
That just makes me laugh.
Of course Blu Ray will look better

Don't need to talk about small screen, just talk about the "right" screen to look at the "right" format on them, that's all.
Don't need to be small, just need to support the "right" resolution

Thanks for starting this thread, Eidolon.

Boggles my mind the sort of discussion it sparked - while it's one of the most informative threads on the Asian sub forum. I already own hundreds of HK-movies on dvd and am only interested in making the expense of upgrading if the transfer is truly from a HD-source - the opening post gives a handy list.

He cares about the info in this thread so he doesn't care about anything else? That's some ace logic there. He probably doesn't give a damn about the rest of life and the world either, they're not on the list.

Just to let you know that I received the Blu Rays of City on Fire and Once Upon a Time in China & America, thanks to the cheap K&R sale on DDDHouse and they are worth the purchase.
You were right, they aren't upscaled.

I trusted you and have nothing to complain about!

Thank you very much
