I personally think the originals look better, in your upscale the aspect ratio is wrong, the colors are all off, the outlines are too thick, the blacks are more of a gray, and it overall just looks blurry. Also you rendered to 60fps instead of 23.976.

  1. The aspect ratio is the same, just cropped slightly to remove video artifacting on the edges.
  2. The colors are more like technicolor film, and are probably closer to how the original film versions looked.
  3. The outlines are sharpened, not thickened.
  4. The blacks appear quite black on my screen, so I’m not sure what you mean by that.
  5. The blu ray will be encoded at 23 fps, so it doesn’t really matter if the raw file is 60 fps.
  6. Denosing can cause a slightly blurry look, but its better than having a bunch of pixellated noise all over the image.

You’re welcome to restore these yourself if mine aren’t good enough for your tastes.
