This is seriously one of the best war movies ever. You owe it to yourself to get a copy. Not sure how blu-ray will help the picture on this movie, since it was filmed in 1970, but maybe they have some special features or something. Either way, it's not a bad price for such a great movie.

Spoiler Alert: Patton was a bad-ass.

I have this on Blu-ray and it is a great movie. I never had it on DVD or VHS so I can't comment on the improvement in quality but I do find the quality to be top notch on Blu-ray and not cheesy or pixelated at all. Do yourself a favor and buy this because Patton's opening speech is worth just this much.

Great movie, and yes Blu-Ray has the capacity to make older films look great too. It's not about the age of the film, it's about the materials used and how well they've been preserved. Unfortunately, "Patton" on Blu-Ray has been smoothed over with Digital Noise Reduction and looks pretty waxy, not at all like the film grain present on the original print.

I was going to say more or less what Randi said. A movie's age generally doesn't have anything to do with its potential for improvement in HD, since movies have historically been shot on 35mm film, whose resolution at least equals that of HD video.

But Patton, specifically, has notoriously awful picture quality on Blu-ray, not because of anything inherent to the film itself, but because it's been subjected to heavy digital filtering, smoothing most of the fine detail out of the image entirely.

This movie, Karate Kid and Conan are 3 movies I can never pass up on a lazy Sunday afternoon in front of the TV.

Not only is this edition bad Blu-ray mastering, but in movie collectors forums it is known as one of the worst Blu-ray transfers ever released due to the DNR scrubbing. Blu-ray fans refer to this disc as "The Wax Museum" due to the massive resolution smoothing done by the Digital Noise Reduction.
The studio promised to release a remastered version either this year or next.

There's no room for sissies in ordering this movie!
