Ron, IMO the Director's Cut is definitely superior to the theatrical. It makes an already long film longer, but it's time well spent.
I will watch that version today.


This gets even whackier with VUDU...

All this time I thought HDX was 4k.

Actually, an HD movie on Vudu is 720p. An HDX is Blu-ray 1080p quality.

So, some of these DVD films that I am paying to have upgraded to HD might not be at 1080p.

At least that is how I am seeing this thus far

That's how it used to be, but I don't think they even offer the HD (720p) tier anymore. They certainly never did on D2D, so your conversions are fine. Your only options there are SD and HDX.

SD = 480p
HDX = 1080p
UHD = 4K

Remember until 2012 iTunes used to offer 720p as their highest resolution as well. When the industry switched to 1080p, and companies like Vudu had been referring to 720p as "HD," they needed to call 1080p something different, hence "HDX."

Just did my first bunch of SD -> HDX upgrades on Vudu mobile:


The Patsy
The Delicate Delinquent
The Errand Boy

(All three of these are not part of the Jerry Lewis bundle)


The Brady Bunch Movie
A Very Brady Sequel


I could have also done TOP SECRET and PRIVATE PARTS, but I'll wait for them to drop on iTunes so I can store it there.

The Brady Bunch films have been available at times for $9.98 bundled together on iTunes. I bought them awhile ago at that price.

One film on my Wish List "Dark Waters" has upgraded on iTunes from HD to 4K. Perhaps the same will happen to "Bombshell" too.

I am glad we are sharing wish lists.

I would consider DARK WATERS and will add it to my list.

And the movie is a natural continuation of the series. If you liked the series, you'll likely enjoy the movie, too.
And one thing I should have said earlier is I would definitely recommend watching the series before the movie...

Robert, have you considered just doing a Vudu D2D for these two?
Yeah and that system already screwed me in 2017, because I got the SD versions on both Vudu and iTunes.

The series is one of the best I’ve ever seen. My highest recommendation. You’ll not get the most out of Downton Abbey The Movie if you haven’t seen the tremendous series.

The characters are all SO much richer in the film if you know their backstories, and it takes six seasons of the series to fully glean that information.
