    Are Blu-ray movies being remastered or are they just the same transfer
    put on Blu-ray media. What in God's name is the point of that? That's
    just like upscaling a standard DVD to 1080i.

    So there!

    It is not the same as upscaling, and the answer depends on the time and
    method that the telecine session took place for the DVD version, as to
    whether or not a new telecine transfer would be generated for the BD
    version. Usually older titles mean a new session is needed.

    Newer titles sere transferred with higher resolutions already in mind.

    The resolution of the original source matters, which is why a BD version
    is better even than a non-BD version that has been upscaled.

    They tried and failed with FMJ, and had to re-transfer it, but even that
    is grainy as the original stock is. But at least it is high resolution
    graininess. :) Still, the difference was notable.

    of course they are remastered - 1080p 24fps.

    of course some crappy company could transfer vhs tapes to blu ray like they
    do with dvd - i had a really awful bruce lee dvd once complete with
    oncscreen tape stretching - they didnt even bother to get a decent vhs.
