Some of those might be retailer exclusive. MGM is just to best.

(I'll grab NuMH and Teen Wolf)

Yes! My last HD-DVD I've been dying to get replaced by a BD copy of. Which is good since I haven't pulled out the HD-DVD player in about a year.

By contrast, I use my HD-DVD player more than my BD player (because I use it for DVDs). I have no plans to replace Gran Prix or any other of my HD DVDs with the equivalent BDs.

Nevertheless, this is good news for those who have BD only and want to watch Gran Prix in high def. It was quite the "event movie" when it was released in 1966. I saw it on a Cinerama screen in SF.

So far I've the only HD DVD I've replaced was Batman Begins with the $5 Black Friday sale at Wal mart.

If this is the same movie, i remember seeing this on network TV back in the stone-ages. In the late 60's we still had a black and white TV. Will definately check it out as a rental at least.

And some titles had a noticeable step DOWN in quality moving to Blu-ray (like Apollo 13 and The Thing)

Wow! That is totally unexpected news. These will definitely be must-own releases if treated properly. For those unfamiliar with these, they are also notable as important Vittorio De Sica films.

Sorry, those are coming not from Fox Lorber but from Kino Lorber - guess they joined forces when I wasn't looking. In typical Kino style, the only extra on any of them is a full-length De Sica doc on Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. Here's the press release:
Spoiler:
LORBER FILMS ANNOUNCES BLU-RAY EDITIONS RELEASE OF THREE SOPHIA LOREN FILMS - PLUS A 4-DVD BOX SET.
New York, NY - February 23, 2011 - Lorber Films is proud to announce the Blu-ray release of three Sophia Loren films: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (in a special two-disc set with the documentary Vittorio D.), Marriage Italian Style, and Sunflower.

This marks the first time that these films are available on Blu-ray, and Lorber Films is proud to make them available in stunning new HD transfers. The Blu-ray edition of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (with Vittorio D.), is priced at $34.95, while the Blu-ray editions of Marriage Italian Style and Sunflower are priced at $29.95 each.

The four films are available on DVD as a special four-disc set (Sophia Loren Award Collection), priced at $49.95. And while the films are available separately on Blu-ray, Lorber Films is not selling the DVDs individually, outside the box set. Each disc comes with special features, including trailers and stills galleries. The discs are available for prebook on April 5, 2011, and the street date for each is May 3.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Winner of the Best Foreign Film Oscar at the 1965 Academy Awards, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow is a sparklingly original comedy that casts Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren in three different stories set throughout Italy. In Naples, they are poor but resourceful, selling black market cigarettes on the streets. In Milan, Loren is costumed in Christian Dior and debates her preference for a Rolls Royce or her husband. And in Rome, Mastroianni is an industry scion who helps Loren's prostitute set a wavering priest back onto the spiritual plane.

This episode features Sophia's famous striptease, which was recreated 30 years later in Robert Altman's Ready To Wear. Witty and unforgettable, this gem from master filmmaker Vittorio de Sica (Two Women, Marriage Italian Style) is picture-postcard beautiful and effortlessly hilarious.

Also featured in this special 2-disc set is Vittorio D., a documentary on the life and legacy of the great director (and frequent Loren collaborator) that offers fascinating interviews with Woody Allen, Clint Eastwood, Mike Leigh and many others.

Special 2-disc set:

Disc 1:
Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
Trailers
Stills Gallery

Disc 2:
Vittorio D., a feature-length documentary about Vittorio DeSica
Galleries

Italy / 1963 / 118 min. / Color / Italian w/English subtitles / 16:9


Marriage Italian Style

One of the most famous, and funniest, Italian comedies of all time, Marriage Italian Style received nominations for Best Foreign Film, and Best Actress for Sophia Loren, at the Academy Awards. Marcello Mastroianni co-stars as the irrepressibly carnal businessman Domenico, who discovers Loren's Filumena as a young prostitute and keeps her as his mistress and confidante. When he chooses to marry a young cashier instead of her, Filumena is furious, and resorts to a series of wild and hilarious ruses to win back his hand. Directed by the great Vittorio De Sica (The Bicycle Thief), Marriage Italian Style is a timelessly bawdy classic.

Extras include:
Trailers
Theatrical Promo
Stills Gallery

Italy / 1964 / 101 min. / Color / Italian w/English subtitles / 16:9


Sunflower

An Oscar nominee for Best Score (Henry Mancini), Sunflower is a grandly emotional melodrama featuring a stunning performance from Sophia Loren. In another of the actress's great collaborations with director Vittorio De Sica (The Bicycle Thief), Loren plays Giovanna, a steel-willed Italian woman on a desperate search to find her husband Antonio (Marcello Mastroianni), who has gone missing on the WWII battlefields of Russia. Making the grueling overland journey years after the end of the war, she tracks Antonio down and finds him a changed man. This heart-wrenching reunion will forever alter the course of their lives. Full of stunning images and powerful acting, Sunflower is a devastating romantic epic you won't soon forget.

Extras include:
Theatrical Promo
Stills Gallery

Italy / 1970 / 107 min. / Color / Italian w/English subtitles / 16:9

To be fair those taking a step down are in the small minority of titles. Most of them have no improvement or drop in quality, while a small amount are better.
