Saturday Night and Sunday Morning [Blu-ray] [1960]
3.  Saturday Night and Sunday Morning [Blu-ray] [1960] DVD ~ Albert Finney
The list author says:
  "Another super clean BFI restoration - this time it's Karl Reisz's 1960 cutting-edge working class gem. Black & white, Finney like a panther, ballsy roles for the actresses. See detailed review..."

5.  L.A. Confidential [Blu-ray] [1997] DVD ~ Kevin Spacey
The list author says:

6.  The Truman Show [Blu-ray] [1998] [Region Free] DVD ~ Jim Carrey
The list author says:
  "Beautiful transfer to BLU RAY of a film that stills stands up - and in many ways - too uncomfortably close to the abyssmal Big Brother tele we now have forced on us daily. See detailed review..."
6.82
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (106 customer reviews)

Blade Runner [HD DVD] [1982] [US Import]
7.  Blade Runner [HD DVD] [1982] [US Import] DVD ~ Harrison Ford
The list author says:
  "Everything you've heard about this HD and BLU RAY issue is true. The clarity and the sheer scope and vision of the sets blows you away every time. The extras are off the charts too. A Blush response."
18.33   Used & New from: 6.00
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (572 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

Ray [HD DVD]
8.  Ray [HD DVD] DVD ~ Jamie Foxx
The list author says:
  "This was the first HD disc I saw and I couldn't believe the clarity. The second it becomes available on Blu Ray - buy it. It's also the business as a movie."
1.75   Used & New from: 0.65
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (52 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Seabiscuit [HD DVD] [2003] [US Import]
9.  Seabiscuit [HD DVD] [2003] [US Import] DVD ~ Tobey Maguire

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (76 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

The Holiday [HD DVD]
10.  The Holiday [HD DVD] DVD ~ Cameron Diaz

Pride and Prejudice [HD DVD][2005]
11.  Pride and Prejudice [HD DVD][2005] DVD ~ Keira Knightley
The list author says:
  "Another HD-only release at present, but it's a beauty. Far better picture quality than the DVD version. Keira & MacFadden ate up the roles. Contains the awful alternate ending because it's US."
8.99   Used & New from: 2.14
3.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (461 customer reviews)

The French Connection [Blu-ray] [1971] [Region Free]
14.  The French Connection [Blu-ray] [1971] [Region Free] DVD ~ Gene Hackman
The list author says:
  "Bad, bad, bad. A gritty masterpiece given an awful blurry transfer. French Connection II is far better though picture-wise and a sequel almost equal to its original. I've reviewed both on Blu Ray."
6.67   Used & New from: 4.09
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (30 customer reviews)

Great Expectations [Blu-ray]
15.  Great Expectations [Blu-ray] DVD ~ John Mills

How The West Was Won [Blu-ray] [1962] [Region Free]
16.  How The West Was Won [Blu-ray] [1962] [Region Free] DVD ~ Henry Fonda

10.21   Used & New from: 7.15
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

17.  Bleak House (BBC) [Blu-ray] [2005] [Region Free] DVD ~ Gillian Anderson

4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (212 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Pride And Prejudice [Blu-ray] [1995] [Region Free]
18.  Pride And Prejudice [Blu-ray] [1995] [Region Free] DVD ~ Pride and Prejudice
The list author says:
  "The classic 6-episode British TV series was looking washed out and tired - this restoration has lifted the print so much. A great buy and one you'll dip into for years to come."
7.00   Used & New from: 6.05
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (652 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

Pinocchio - 3-Disc Platinum Edition [Blu-ray + DVD]
19.  Pinocchio - 3-Disc Platinum Edition [Blu-ray + DVD] DVD ~ Ben Sharpsteen
The list author says:
  "In truth I've never really liked the film (all that moralizing crap) but the BLU RAY version is simply awesome. Frame-by-frame immaculate restoration of old-school artwork. Jaw-dropping."

20.  WALL-E [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Ben Burtt
The list author says:
  "As parents we watched the DVD of this numerous times; but the BLU RAY is a revelation - detail you simply can't believe. Cars and Monsters, Inc are the same. Perfection on this format."
