5.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Review 4 Jun 2013
By Pantheon TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Ok..enough has been said about this film without me giving my five eggs worth. Needless to say: I love it.

It's the blu-ray you may care about. It looks and sound absolutely incredible. The back says it's had a 4k restoration and it certainly looks amazing.

There's a couple of Streisand 'fluff' featurettes on there too. And a UV Copy.

Audio and subtitles are:
English DTS-HD Master 5.0
French, German, Italian, Spanish Dolby Digital 5.0

Subtitles: English, English (HOH), Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin Simplified), Chinese (Mandarin Traditional), French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Thai and Turkish.

If you love this film then I can highly recommend the upgrade to blu-ray!

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Girl [1968] [Blu-ray] [US Import] 30 July 2014
Format:Blu-ray
Funny Girl [1968] [Blu-ray] [US Import] One of the most popular movie musicals ever made is now better than ever on Blu-ray! FUNNY GIRL follows the early career of stage comedienne Fanny Brice, a role that earned Barbra Streisand the 1968 Oscar® for Best Actress. Only her mother believes Fanny can make it in show business, but when she gets her first break at Keeney's Music Hall, her hilarious debut gets her hired as a comedienne. Fanny becomes a star, falls in love and marries Nick Arnstein [Omar Sharif], a handsome gambler. The film's many memorable songs include "Don't Rain On My Parade" and the other Barbra Streisand classic "People."

FILM FACT: In addition to Barbra Streisand's Oscar win as Best Actress, the film was nominated in the categories of Best Picture, Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Kay Medford, Best Cinematography for Harry Stradling Sr., Best Film Editing for William Sands and Maury Winetrobe, Best Scoring of a Musical Picture for Walter Scharf, Best Original Song for Jule Styne (Music) and Bob Merrill (Lyrics), and Best Sound. Barbra Streisand won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, and nominations went to the film director William Wyler. Barbra Streisand was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, and nominations went to Harry Stradling Sr. for Best Cinematography and Irene Sharaff for Best Costume Design. Isobel Lennart won the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Written American Musical, and Wyler was nominated for the Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing - Feature Film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Bluray Audio transfer 18 Jan 2014
By A.Bryan
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Barbra Streisand was perfectly cast in this show on Broadway and the film producers had the good sense to offer her the film role some years later. I think this is her best film musical work. In its first release, the film was shot on 35mm and printed onto 70mm stock to take advantage of 70mm's ability to feature 6 track stereo sound. Having read the notes on the Bluray release, it appears the drive to create a restored version of the film was spurred by Barbra Streisand herself. The soundtrack on this Bluray release is stunning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray Picture Perfect 11 July 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
It was well worth the wait. Columbia has done a 4-bit restoration and it is nearly perfect. I have given it only 4 stars as the sound is 5.0 DTS and not 5.1. It is a shame that the sub-woofer doesn't get a go. Apart from that I have no other issues with the restoration. Barbara won the Best Actress Oscar for her role in Funny Girl and well deserved. 1968 the only time in Best Actress history where there was a tie! The other joint winner was Katherine Hepburn for The Lion in Winter. Amazon.co.uk has Funny Girl at the moment as a Two for 10 pounds special - so be quick!

4.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL STREISAND
An excellent remastering of a wonderful musical. Picture is sharp (for the most part although there are a few soft focus close ups of 'la streisand') and rich warm colour. Read more
