Out of curiosity, do 70mm blow up prints look better than standard 35mm?

No, they look two to four times grainier, but you trade that for image size.

70mm blowups often suck visually
I'm going to disagree totally with that. I just saw these movies and marveled at how grain free, beautiful and bright the images were. I had people tell me (presumably based off of recent video transfers) that TWOK would be a grainy mess, but it was anything but. It was a very detailed image and very pleasant looking.

And of course the 6-track magnetic tracks were wonderful.
