It’s safe to say that not a lot of these films are actually right up my alley, but it does rather feel like I jump started my Blu-ray collection!  I have a few of these as DVD’s – purchased mostly because they turned up on 5.1 lists of “Good Audio” in feature films.

Supposedly, all of these are new transfers / new mastering, for Blu-ray.  So, shouldn’t have to ever try and better these, eh?

    Can’t say any of those movies interest me much, except for “To Kill A Mockingbird.” I’m against buying movies now! Movie watching takes time [and money] from precious music!

    “All Quiet On The Western Front” was rather interesting, and it was nice seeing a version that has been polished up so nicely. I’d never seen it before. Made in 1930, it practically looks like a 50’s film! A wonderful anti-war film, it uses American actors to portray German soldiers in WW1 – it illustrates the futility of war etc. And apparently it won an Academy Award for Best Picture and was re-released in 1939 to stir up emotions against the Nazis and caution audiences about the horrors of war.
