    Im interested in buying alot of alfred hitchcock films and am wondering is it worth getting blurays as how can a very very old film be changed to a movie of bluray quality. Should i just buy the origanal dvd versions?

    Film is of a higher definition than Blu-Ray so old films should look fantastic, given a good transfer. The Hitchcock ones vary but should all blow the DVD's out the park.

    Variable.

    Some are jaw-dropping. Others so-so.

    But I think in every instance the disc is a step up from the DVD - sometimes massively so, at least when viewed on my projector screen.
