    It really gets my goat that the film companies/ dvd producers can pass off upscaled OLD films as HD content !!!! in fact this really annoys me :mad: I believe that if an HD DVD or blue -ray disc WAS NOT FLIMED IN HD originally then it should be clearly marked on the box saying that "This film was not originally filmed in HD"

    I'd also like to see a front page poll on this matter to see who agrees with me,
    cheers :clap:

    Yes 35mm has always been a high resolution format. It has to look good on a h-u-g-e screen. On your TV it has always been downscaled to fit SD. For HD it is still downscaled but not so much. Try watching something like 'The Adventures Of Robin Hood' or similar on HD to see how it looks.
