Maybe a dumb question, but wouldn't it be better to wait for the inevitable high-definition re-releases of popular films like Blade Runner? The image quality curve is definitely pretty near the apex with HD DVDs, so it's unlikely that they would be as readily replacable by another format later on with as big a difference between it as DVD to Blu-Ray - IMO a good choice for a "reference" copy to own, and keep going back to over the years.

Probably not, since BR was filmed with... film, and Blu-Ray will really only improve on movies recently made with digital recording. I could be wrong, though.

Film has much better resolution than HD in fact.

I think the guy on the cover of this compilation expresses distilled 100% happiness ;D. And I can understand him when I listen to the classic tunes!!

 

And then a Brazilian super-eccentric I simply love!

As film is an analog media, it's resolution is hard to define. Different film stocks have different properties. Older movies with special effects use photocopying method that lower resolution significantly. The bottom line is resolution on film is different from digital media. Anyway, generally in order to digitally scan "everything" from film 4K digital media is needed.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Perhaps in the non-classical world "Harry" doesn't have to be so thorough.  ;D

Who says George isn't as thorough as Harry? Maybe that was just the beginning for George?

To be honest, being as thorough as Harry isn't easy...  0:)

A mattress as mine had broken, and three Lovecraft collections on Penguin.
