I bought that HMV VHS cased thing a few years ago. It was a dual format so seemed a no brainer with it's poster, sticker and card.

To be honest i did watch it on blu on my old telly in the spring and it looked okay.

That was then though.

Quite a few of the Shameless Dvds are down to £4 in HMV too. 5 movies for £29 is ideal for a cheapskate like me and I have a few in my basket just now. I was all set to click ‘buy’, but then was watching my old region 1 “Creepshow” dvd and the picture quality is so awful that I’m having 2nd thoughts on the format! Ha!

Most modern movies / discs will look good on upscaled dvd as long as it's not being watched on a 65" screen or similar, but some of the older ones really don't.

Anchor Bay's Two Evil Eyes and also Halloween II from Sanctuary. They don't look great. I noticed Halloween II in Asda today for £3. It's the same release as the Sanctuary one with the Kim Newman / Stephen Jones commentary and was going to get it as an improvement over the one i currently own, then noticed it was from Scanbox and decided it would be the exact same print as the one i already have.

The two dvd's i watched last night Pumpkinhead Ashes to Ashes and Hell Fest looked really good on a 4K tv.

My Creepshop disc is this old R1 Warner Bros release. The PQ is so bad. It’s so super dark during the Jordy Verril story that you can barely see the imagine at all.
