Elvis movies on Blu-ray? Hmmm. Not so long ago I acquired all of them on DVD, and at this point I can't see re-buying them all on Blu. I want to get
ELVIS ON TOUR, but since it's a concert film I don't feel any pressing need to have it on BD.
Darn shame that Blu-ray came along so late.

It helps that most Bond films were shot in 60mm or 75mm film.

I had the opposite experience recently, Joe. I've been watching quite a few of the Bond films lately. When I have the movie on Blu-ray I watch that one. Otherwise I use the Ultimate Edition versions. The Blu-ray discs just smoke the versions on the regular DVD's. I did some scene for scene comparisions on FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE and GOLDFINGER, and there just isn't a comparision.

I knew that the SD would look amazing on my system, no need for a Blu-ray... and especialy NOT at 30 bucks when I can get the SD for 10! Screw that!

I'm realizing that if I'm comparing a version to another one to justify it, then I'm feeling like it needs justification, which by definition to me is not a good way for me to spend money on account of my lack of disposable income.

In my case, I bought the new Wolf Man disc set for the extras, not for the movie itself. Everyone says the film looks better on this new disc, but without A/B'ing them, I would never have noticed (I watched it and it looked fine. So does my old single disc of The Wolf Man). If this had been only the 1941 film again with no new extras, I would not have bought it.
