wasn't "the Family Man" a suspected up convert?
Old master, degrained to remove detail, contrast boosted to remove more detail but make the colours pop, hey presto it looks like an upconvert but really its just a Universal special.
Asian films being upscaled is unfortunately common because of the sources being provided by the Asian film companies. This is generally true for multiple releases for various US distributors. I don't think the comparison to the films provided by the US studios is apt.
That has been the case in way too many of their releases but, like I said, it's still not an upconvert.
I can believe that.
True, their studio licensed releases are much less likely to be unconverted, and if this one is from Universal I wouldn't expect it to be the case. Sure, Family Plot in the recent Hitchcock set was practically one, but releases like that from Universal are...let's say "unfortunate exceptions".
If this was a film being licensed from a non-studio entity, like last years dreadful Shout! blu-ray release The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea, I'd be more leery.
