I would be careful with this comparison. Many BluRay disks of older movies are just upscaled from the DVD (I'm guessing here - not actually sure how it's mastered) and aren't significantly different than what you would get with an upscaling DVD player.

You would have to get a "recent" movie mastered specifically for BluRay to see the difference. I've done this several times myself (specifically "The Princess Bride" - which appears to be an upscale, and "How to Train your Dragon" which is significantly clearer).
