There is a glowing softness to those older movies that is much more expressive than today's garish HD look. In fact, a lot of the filmmakers I know are talking about switching to that "film look" for their digital cameras...so what's the point in Bluray? It's great for animation detail, but overall I like the look of standard DVD's much better.
To each his own I guess. Just like DVD's, there are production issues with Blu-Ray like excessive edge enhancement which varies disc to disc. I do prefer the "film look" to the HD you are talking about but IMO, it really doesn't seem to be the defining difference between low res DVD's and Blu-Ray.
