5) It Happened One Night: No argument here about the movie's quality. But from the DVDs we've seen of this, the Marx Brothers, and other pre-war classics, it's clear that for many older films the celluloid really doesn't deliver a clear enough picture for an HD transfer to matter, especially celluloid that hasn't been stored very carefully.

I saw "A Knight's Tale" playing on a bunch of TV's on blu-ray and it looked like a VHS tape. Grain and dirt all over the place, and not the bit of grain some people love to see, this was clearly a no-effort release. Shocking for a movie released in 2001.
