Anyone know if Natural born killers is out on bluray? I found it on amazon but I find it odd that it’s not listed on the bluray site and all but 1 listed on amazon are dvd.

FYI, movies shot before HD / BLU Ray technology are not going to be TRUE HD anyway. They will be converted in post production, which is never going to be the same quality. Going for SD to BLU is very complicated to remaster.

Most people don't realize yet that these oldies they buy on BLU ray are not TRUE blu ray quality. They're close, but XD cams were not available then. lol

It depends entirely on how the movie was shot, not when it was shot. Film Resolution is still leaps and bounds higher than DVD, and more than enough to make a great Blu-Ray film.

Aside from that, you're getting massive sound improvements, and in most cases a significantly cleaned up transfer, lacking in dust and scratches.

You've also got higher bit rates for the video, so you get improved motion as well as improved Color (see Enter the Dragon for evidence on this, comparing the DVD to the Blu-Ray is night and day).

Just because it's old doesn't mean it's going to be less than stellar. In the case of Natural Born killers, the film is intentionally grainy, dark, and has high contrast. The end result is a film that will initially seem like a very very poor transfer, but if you compare it to the DVD release, then you will immediately notice the differences.
