I find that my favorite HD discs are of older movies (Grand Prix, Searchers, Casablanca, Black Narcissus, etc.). Granted these films have been treated with loving care, but I'm generally underwhelmed with the recent releases on BD. I generally don't see a significant upgrade in the BD versions of these films versus their S-DVD counterparts upconverted on my Oppo 983. I do agree with your last sentence though, since the "Wow"-factor proponents generally go with the latest CGI blockbusters. I'm hoping that the sales of The Godfather Trilogy will be strong enough to encourage more older films to be released on BD.
