Or, if you'd like, upscales of the 2005 dvd's look pretty darn good next to the blu-rays. Reminds me of several xylon threads (not this one, obviously) that used a dvd and a blu-ray derived from the same master: Star Wars, Wall-E, Terminator Salvation, Dune, etc.

Yes, but the people at the other site swear that there is a huge difference. I don't think it's that huge because like you said, the DVDs upscaled looked pretty good and since these BDs aren't Tier 1, the jump isn't as impressive as I hoped. So, side by side screenshots of the two would be greatly appreciated. I want to be proven wrong as I'm being severely criticized for my opinion.
