The Rock. One of my favorite action movies. Humor, military action, Sean Connery in his first major comeback role. San Fancisco vistas as the backdrop. If you want the highest resolution DVD version of this film, this is it. Its recored at a higher bitrate than the regular DVD meaning sharper picture. But is still faithful to the movie version. Many AV geeks will say that blu-ray over sharpens, over saturates colors, and changes the film from the movie version to show off the capabilities of blue ray, but it also changes what the director intended for the movie version. With a high quality upconverting DVD player from Oppo, and a decent home theatre setup, this DVD holds its own against any bluray and still remains faithful to the Director's original movie version.
