    Haven't made the switch to Blu-ray yet. Which titles are worth the upgrade for those of us who haven't converted yet?

    I haven't made the switch either. It feels like I've put too much time, effort and money into my DVD collection. I know I'll have to switch at some point, but I'm putting it off.

    42. Wow, that was a lot more than I thought and some of those are boxsets. Each one of them I got on sale.

    In most cases they are significant upgrades from there DVD counterparts. Even the two that weren't a big improvement were worth the price I paid to have a slightly better copy.

    I try not to purchase what I already own on DVD unless the picture up grade is a MAJOR improvement. I think this will most definitely change as the more obscure Italian horror films make the move to blu. I can't resist me some Fulci, Argento, and the like upgrading.

    0, and it'll likely stay that way.

    The Descent
    Death Race
    Gladiator
    Saving Private Ryan
    Trick R Treat
    Hellraiser
    Children of the Corn
    V For Vendetta
    King Kong

    I was only going to stick to some of the "must" upgradable ones (i.e. The Dark Knight, 300) but ended up upgrading some of them at a really cheap price. I bought the upgrades for like 10 on a lot of them, then sold the DVD for 6. $4 upgrade I can live with.

    Creepshow is a stunner, and of course Halloween looks amazing in HD. I was also very pleased with the quality of the original Friday the 13th.
    Carpenter's The Thing is another beauty, and The Shining really shines on Blu-ray.
    Hellraiser and My Bloody Valentine (1981) never looked better, same goes for Cujo and Children of the Corn.
    I was a bit underwhelmed by The Lost Boys and The Goonies (Regional B) and Black Christmas' transfer remains somewhat 'controversial'.

    Fuck, didn't notice I'm up to 70 replaced, 101 blus total.
    On the bright side, well over 50% of those replaced I've already got rid of the dvd except when it has to kept for features or coolness.

    I'm rapidly approaching 150 blus. Almost all of them
    replaced their DVD brethren. I need help.

    I've had a Blu-ray player since December and am up to around 15 - 20 that were dvd replacements. It's a work in progress and I'm sure there will be more. Converting to Blu-ray also got me to downsize my dvd collection. I reevaluated my collection and realized there was a lot of junk I didn't care to have anymore since I'll probably never revisit again.

    172 ... 174 if you count The New York Ripper and Run Lola Run, which I had owned on DVD but sold years before I bought the Blu-rays.
