Paramount have finally released Flashdance on Blu-ray Region A and B,and what a fantastic upgrade from DVD.

Blu-ray video quality:

Continuing the theme of contrasts, Lyne and cinematographer Don Peterman (Men in Black) shot a movie about artistic aspiration in the gritty urban style pioneered by Lyne's countryman Alan Parker for Fame (1980). Lyne then softened the imagery by dispersing smoke into the air in almost every shot such that, according to editor Bud Smith, there were always a few takes that couldn't be used because the actors were obscured. (Midway through production, the studio panicked and ordered that no more smoke be used, and Lyne posted an assistant to watch for the approach of any studio people, so that the smoke machine could be hidden before they arrived.) The result is an often soft, delicately colored image of a type that has gone almost entirely out of fashion in today's world of digital photography and post-production.

Paramount/Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is a superb rendition of Lyne's and Peterman's vision, as it was seen by audiences in 1983. The grain and texture of the imagery have been retained without diminishment, but they never become obtrusive (unless one is allergic to even a hint of grain). No attempt has been made to compensate for the original photography's softness with digital tools, which is the correct choice, because the image has fine detail that artificial sharpening or excessive contrast could easily overwhelm. Besides, Lyne and Peterman carefully designed Flashdance for visual contrast between the muted everyday world and the garishly "hyper-real" stage show at Mawby's, with its intense colors and bright lights.

I first saw this movie in the 80s, I was divorced and bringing up 2 boys on my own. I loved her independence. She knew what she wanted and went for it. I loved the dancing scenes, her leg warmers were the norm then, we all wore them. She had a job that i thought was amazing for a women. The energy and purpose of her life was only a dream for me. Its fun right from the beginning.I never get bored with the music or the movie and its characters. You laugh and cry, sad and happy.

I really enjoyed this film. The special features are really interesting, telling us about the history of the making of it from the director's point of view. The film itself is both exciting and moving. The costumes and make up, along with the fantastic dance routines, are magnificent. Even though Jennifer Beals is not a trained dancer and the main dance, that wins the audition towards the end of the story, is made up of several different dancers, it is so well orchestrated and choreographed, you cannot tell that it is not her good self! other dances throughout the film are magnificent. Needless to say the soundtrack is brilliant. On the whole a great film, timeless and an inspiration to any generation. Well worth watching - this is definitely a film that Jennifer Beals fans must see!

Personaly what makes a good film for me is that it is enjoyable, entertaining, gripping, likable and emotional. Flashdance without a doubt ticks all these five boxes. Flahdance is a very retro, cheesy entertaining film that is at no point boring and never drags, and is also a very clear symbol of the great 1980s and the night club exotic dancing scene of the time.

The films plot is pretty basic, an 18 year old girl called Alex (Jennifer Beals) who despite her age and gender works as a welder at a steele mill by day, but by night she is an exotic dancer in a night club, however she aspires to become a professional dancer, but early on can't get the courage to apply, intimidated by the scope of the application process, which includes listing all prior dance experience and education which Alex lacks. But after the various events that follow throughout the film (both positive and negative) she finaly develops the courage to audition for a dance school or something like that and passess, ending the film on a predictalbe but happy conclusion. So yhea, the plot isn't the most interesting, but dose it really have to be? no, because its a motivatoinal dance story, so the basic plot isn't an issue.

Pros

- Brilliantly coreographed dance scenes, with amazing cinematography which capture the images with various creative shots, with perfectly placed edditing.

- Alot of likable characters, some more than others.

- Interesting central character (Alex)

- The story is told at a reasonably nice pace and never drags.

- Deals with relatable themes, such as failing and achieving certain goals in life.

- A very entertaining feelgood film.

- Brilliant music, with very good music video like montages.
