"Mrs. Doubtfire" on BLU RAY
on 24 February 2014
I wasn't expecting much from this 1993 film on BLU RAY - but the 16 x 9 picture quality is shockingly good - very clean and clear - no scratches - no flickers - and a huge improvement over the old battered DVD we've had all these years.
You also forget how young the cast was - Brosnan (so handsome and so about to nail Bond) - Sally Field as a flirting mother of two daughters (great actress with equally honed comedic chops) - and of course the incomparable Robin Williams who has to be one of the funniest and most mentally inventive people in the known Universe and any dimension beyond.
Audio is English 5.1 DTS-HD (Lossless), French 5.1 DTS and German 5.1 DTS-HD
Subtitles are in Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Norwegian, Swedish and English For The Hearing Impaired.
There's a huge amount of 'Extras' as well:
1. 22 Deleted/Extended And Alternate Scenes
2. Production Office - From Man to Mrs. - The Evolution of Mrs. Doubtfire
3. Ageing Gracefully: A Look Back At Mrs. Doubtfire
4. Photo Gallery
6. Animation Studio Segments
7. Makeup Tests
8. The Improvisation of Mrs. Doubtfire
9. Publicity Department
10. Trailers & TV Spots
It is of course a bit dated by today's standards - and takes it sweet time to get going - but once it's up and running - you remember why it appealed so much - and to so many.
A great comedy and family film reissued on a quality 20th Century Fox BLU RAY...
