My brother works at Best Buy, so he has the hookup and got us a Samsung BR player with built in wifi, etc for Christmas. I mention that, because I had no interest in getting a BR player, just because my regular player seemed to do a fine job - great picture.
Got it hooked up via HDMI to a 60" Mitsubishi DLP, running 1080p. It's great, he got us a starter pack of a few BR discs, modern stuff, GREAT picture.
To the point, we already own Young Guns on DVD, but walking through Wally World the other day, they had a pdq set out by electronics full of $8 BR's - older stuff, and Young Guns was in the bunch. Why not, right? I can't say it sounded, or looked any better than my plain old dvd copy (480p, right?). It didn't have the wow factor, like say Planet Earth on BR, or the copy of The Other Guys we rented on BR.
Is it the era the movie was orginally made (mastered?) in? I'm actually glad - I don't feel the need to re-buy anything - but it has left me a little confused as to why Young Guns was put on BR, if it's not substantially (or at least noticeably) better. Why bother?
I know this could be an isolated occurence, but is there some sort of mastering on the box I should look for, or something I'm missing, like the AAA, AAD, ADD, and DDD you can find on cd's?
