hi all, when they get an older movie and convert it to bluray (for example The Terminator), is the resolution as good as the recent bluray movies?

I assume your reference to resolution is actually a "catch all" misnomer phrase for PQ. So the answer is: it depends on the source film condition/quality/content. In the Terminator's case, *no. It was shot on a low budget and cheaper film stock was used. Also has a lot to do with storage and handling over the years.


*Lines of resolution is not a problem since all 35mm film has the capability of being scanned at 2K. Film is also analog so resolution has a different (chemical) meaning than digital.

To find out how good old (as in 1938 OLD) movies look on Blu-ray check out The Adventures of Robin Hood.
