DVD Blu-ray DVD

Here are two images from "Jailhouse Rock" we found on the FECC Forum. The first is from the new Blu-ray version, the second from the UK PAL standard DVD. These were taken very quickly using a Pioneer plasma, but give an idea of the huge improvement in the image of the new HD version. The colour temp have not been altered.

HD is superb.I have a couple of John Wayne dvds in HD from the mid fifties,Rio Bravo and The Searchers.Picture quality is awesome.Fine detail is where HD excells and I will definately be buying Elvis in HD.I agree with the other comments here,That's The Way It Is and This is Elvis should definately be given the HD treatment.It's not just picture quality that makes hd so good the discs usually contain loads of extra features such as making of the film aswell as cast biographies and commentaries.Lets hope the Elvis ones do too.Price varies a lot though depending where you buy the discs from.Tesco can sell a disc for under £14 but the same disc can be £10 more somewhere else.

Why were ttwii and This is Elvis given no treatement? thats easy because those films in there oppion are not worth it,but they dont mind if you spend your heard earned money on them!

They invented Blu-ray so we could get back to the standard of Betamax

I think the second was taken for a Betamax-tape..

I have the Blu-Ray versions of both J.R. and Viva Las Vegas on order and should arrive soon but unfortunately I don't have a Blu-Ray player to play them on yet! Judging by the pics above there IS a vast improvement. So why weren't TTWII and This Is Elvis mastered in high-def as well? Hey Warner, are you there?
