I didn't even know it made it to DVD. Last time I watched it several years ago, someone loaned me a VHS tape (I noticed the scenes with Crazy Old Indy George Hall forcing his life story on strangers, had been removed.)

I've always been iffy about BluRay releases because they sometimes look like behind the scenes footage. Kinda like homemade cinema. Too crisp and devoid of the original film stock that originally evoked the atmosphere that anchored the original vision.
Though the films are so old that I doubt that this will be so much a problem. I wonder what a comparison to the DVD releases and this version would make.
I don't get it. If you see movies like 2001, The Godfather or Cleopatra, heck even the old B&W Metropolis... these movies look so crisp as if they were developed yesterday and we get to see first print. It really is beautiful when the transfer is done well.
Hence why I said there wouldn't be much of a problem, what the difference between DVD and BluRay would be.
BluRay discs can hold more data 25 GB compared to DVDs 4.7GB.
The reality is in the resolution on modern day screens. Which is definitely noticeable.
My argument is with modern day films. Like Sherlock Holmes for instance. On BluRay the film lost its texture and vibe due to the fact the whole film looked like behind the scenes footage. Compared to cinematic release visuals it lost its original vibrancy.
But yeah with films like the Indiana Jones Original Trilogy it should look nice. The recent film I don't know. Could make the film worse.
