4.0 out of 5 stars SPR, 30 July 2010
This review is from: Saving Private Ryan - 2 Disc Special Edition [Blu-ray] [1998] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
The item was received quickly. The quality was poor however. I expected it to be much better because it is in Blu-Ray. Apparently Blu-Ray only makes a difference with new films, being shot at a higher definition.

No, films have been shot in high definition for over 70 years. In fact, older films were filmed in a definition higher than HD.

exactly - a film shot on 35mm 100 years ago will be much higher in detail than something shot on HD for tv now.

pthrills is quite correct,any high quality cinema is dependant on the quality of the film it was shot on and the quality of the lenses used in photographing the film,hence,a lovingly restored classic -for instance the films of David Lean,or to be specific the first season of Star Trek-will look fantastic in high def(because they were shot using high quality film and cameras/lenses;high def is not a new technology,merely a new tv experience);but not necessarily better than a modern high definition source(although season one of Star Trek is simply stunning in the hd format);in mentioning Star Trek it is interesting to compare season one with season's two and three and compare the marked degradation in the high def. remastering;season two and season three are noticably poorer since budgets for the series were cut and consequently so was the quality of the materials used in filming.The remastering team did the best they could with the source material,but you can't magically restore what isn't there to restore.As I said high def is new for tv,but not new per se!!
