Here are some very helpful comparison sites which are superior to DVDBeaver in the case these sites actually take screencaptures of the film in question. Why settle for a pitiful photograph when direct captures are superior?
Here are the websites:
DVD Heaven
Bullets 'N Babes Forums

And I know Xylon from AVS forum does some excellent upscaling SDDVD, HDDVD and BD comparisons.

There's also a screenshot thread over at the blu-ray.com forums. Unfortunately the guy who does the direct captures unnecessarily resizes them to 720p for some reason. The are a fair amount of direct captures in the screenshot thread at AVS too but there's no index so you have to either search or wade through all the photos to get to them.

Whut? The screenshots from that guy should be the full 1080p! Regardless!
I just wanna see some direct comparisons of the SD and HDDVD/Blu (not gonna focus my collection there yet since HDDVD is damn great price for me right now) of these titles. Even broadcast HD would be good, as long as the broadcast in question retains the OAR. Speaking of which, all those free On Demand HD movies I quit and delete cause they're not OAR which pisses me off. Ok, the titles, short list though...
Sleepy Hollow
Back to the Future
Back to the Future Part II
Back to the Future Part III
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
BATMAN (1989)
