2001 is still one of the most 'eye candy' films I've seen.

Yeah, I said over in the dedicated District 9 thread that its probably the best looking disc I've seen, and I still think that. Simply jaw dropping picture.

The New Star Trek 2009 Release is a good option both in quality of film and eye candy.

picked up district 9 and my mouth almost hit the floor, you guys were right its amazing. I gave my old lord of the rings special edition dvd a woosh through the other day to and the machine does do a fantastic job of the upscalling, anyone wanting one should take a look, this particular model is very cheap at the moment.
