JAWS 2: SkyHD HDTV rip (1080/24p) BD-25 [June 2015]
JAWS 3D: TBD iTunes (2D), Vudu (2D), PAL DVD (2D), HDTV (2D/??), and Sensio (3D SBS)

I know there are HDTV rips of all three films, but they’re all highly compressed and I’m not sure if they’re true HD.
The films are available on VUDU & iTunes in HD, however, when I rented JAWS: THE REVENGE, it seemed to be a mere upscale, but I’ve heard varying reports from people who own the films on VUDU and iTunes.
The films were also re-released in a 3-pack here in the states. The transfers for JAWS 3D (2D) & REVENGE are brand new, but aren’t high resolution. The same transfer for REVENGE is used on iTunes, while the 2003 2D transfer is used for iTunes/VUDU.
My best bet would be to upconvert the PAL DVDs, being that there’s extra resolution, but even then, it looks bad because MPEG-2 compression to HD is noticeable.
