I just picked up "Shawshank Redemption" on Blu Ray and watched it after dinner tonight. What a joy. Not only is this one of my movie favorites of all time...but they managed to deliver this masterpiece with very clean HD imagery, while retaining the integrity of the director's "period" look and feel. The audio in TrueHD durround was also great, although mostly in the musical sections...since alot of the sound is dialog in general. Most people don't even realize this was one of Stephen King's efforts that migrated beyond expectations into a very successful movie. In any case...while I am not looking to update all my DVD collection to HD, this one was a must-have (it just came out last Tuesday). If you liked the movie, you'll love it on Blu Ray.
