both very worthy of an upgrade if you ask me..... even the audio alone is worth it. They're very attainable at a low price, so I'd jump on them for $10 each or so.... I wouldn't rush out to pay $20 each though because they are both catalog titles that have been around for awhile.

PQ on opening scenes in Coming to America gives the brightness and colors that you would expect from a Blu. I thought both were an upgrade off the DVD's. Definitely worth the buy if you get the 2 pack like I did.

They were both worth every penny. I already had Coming to America. I ended up getting both. I needed Trading Places for a school assignment so that was a good excuse to get it

Been thinking of getting Coming To America for sometime, it's my all time favorite movie with Eddie Murphy, man that movie is great.

I been pulling off upgrading it because the DVD was given to me by my mom as a Christmas gift (I know sound lame but I am weird) I suppose I could always get the BD and keep the DVD for sentimental reasons.

I only have Trading Places but I can say it is a step up on the dvd. The colors look correct as the dvd was pale or over saturated at times. No regrets in this purchase.

Have them both on Blu-ray, and they are worth the upgrade.

Two of Murphy's best films.

Trading Places was the better of the two in terms of film and Blu-ray quality. If you can pick up both for $25, do it!

Agreed. Trading Places was really good regarding PQ. Coming to America Had softer PQ to my surprise but both are worth the purchase in my opinion.
