I can't even begin to imagine how a non-anamorphic DVD looks on a 60" screen.

So is that incentive as to it not getting a blu-ray port?

The doubles in True Lies have always been super obvious no matter the format.

Velvet must have some sort of witchcraft installed in his BD player though, as the R1 non-anamorphic DVD is truly one of the worst DVDs I've ever seen. Don't get me wrong, I've got several non-ana DVDs which look extremely respectable on my own set-up but that one's terrible.

If it is, then it's an incredibly lame one.

Can't be worse than seeing it in the theater.

I hope they're not planning on CGI upgrades. Wouldn't it be awful if we waited 10 years and we got some abomination?

People seem to forget, that these movies were played on massive screens at higher resolutions and hardly anybody stomps out, because they can spot a stunt person doing their thing ...

I mean compared to a BD it looked horrible, but I dunno... after 10 minutes I got used to it and it looked more less perfectly fine. I wasn't like "OH MY GOD THIS LOOKS TERRIBLE!" Oddly enough when I watched Panic Room on DVD a month or so ago I did think "OH MY GOD THIS LOOKS TERRIBLE" the whole time, and that was "superbit" anamorphic. I guess it depends on the style of movie or something.

Also my player somehow knows to make non-anamorphic widescreen look right without touching zoom. Not sure how that happens. It does not zoom 4:3 DVD at all and keeps its ratio, so it's not automatically zooming when it shouldn't be. I dunno, it's weird, but I'm not complaining.

Which is exactly what I just posted.

My eyes can only see 6 bit color, so that doesn't help me.

I have the same thing happen when I play the non-anamorphic DVD of The Abyss.

When I first started converting my DVD collection to Blu-ray, I was like "hey DVD up-conversion doesn't look too bad". Now, after several hundred Blu-rays, players ranging from about 100 bucks to my current Oppo 105D, two plasmas and an LED screen, I see up-conversion in general as the utter crap that it is.
