Best upgrade from their HD DVD releases. Figured the HD DVD forum would be the best place to ask HD DVD owners.

Eg. The Chronicles of Riddick BD offers a lossless audio track compared to the HD DVD. Etc.

DD+ -> DTS-MA isn't much of an upgrade. In fact, it is questionable there are any detectable differences by the majority aside from a level increase.

I haven't heard of a single one that is worth concerning yourself with.
Use your money for titles you do not already have in high definition - spending it to replace HD-DVDs with BDs of the same title is a waste of money unless you are planning to get rid of your HD-DVD playback equipment also. bbbluhhhhdvd

The only one that made a big difference to me was Top Gun, in that it is a huge improvement over the HD DVD due to the extra features included. It was a bare bones release on HD DVD, but includes nice supplements on the Blu-ray version.

King Kong had the extended version on Blu-ray, theatrical only on HD DVD.

Star Trek S1 has original and upgraded effects on Blu, with only upgraded on HD DVD - also, you have to flip the disc on many extra features on the HD DVD version - trivial to some, but an extra step.

BSG S1 has the entire miniseries on on disc, instead of having to go onto 2 discs on the HD DVD version.

That's all that I can think of off the top of my head.

Bourne looks A LOT better on Blu Ray than the Hd dvd versions.

Really? From the review on this site it doesn't appear so:

The Video: Sizing Up the Picture

All three 'Bourne' films are presented on their own BD-50 dual-layer discs, each in 1080p/VC-1 video. ('Bourne Identity' is framed at 2.35:1, while 'Bourne Supremacy' and 'Bourne Ultimatum' are 2.40:1). The transfers appear identical to the previous HD DVD versions, and remain both generally consistent and impressive throughout.

I love the Bourne series and would consider an upgrade, what is so much better in your eyes?

You are absolutely wrong. The same masters were used for both the HD DVD and BD versions and screenshots have proven that there is no detectable difference.
