Is Half Life Source worth it even though I have the original?

I got the Orange Box ages ago and it didn't come with HL Source. Is it even worth the extra? It comes with Half Life Deathmatch Source, which I assume is dead. On the same note, are any other non-Orange Box HL titles worth it?

I've never heard anything great about it. Black Mesa is everything Source was supposed to be and so much more.

only if you're dying to replay HL1 and you want to see the "updated" graphics.

I played Black Mesa before I played the original Half Life, and I honestly feel like the original blows it out of the water.

HL:Source was an embarrassment of a port. No reason to prefer it over the original even if you didn't already have it.

How so? What could go so terribly wrong with just using an updated engine?
