This review is from: Goodfellas [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
In response to the previous reviewer, this is an extremely good transfer on Blu-ray. The colours are vibrant, the detail is excellent (particularly apparent in close-ups such as the shot of young Henry's face as he looks out of his bedroom window across the street to the cafe) and the lighting is gorgeous. The sound also is as good as you could expect it to be. In summary, the film looks like it was filmed this year, rather than 20 years ago.
Extras provided include 2 commentaries (one with cast - not including de Niro or Pesci - & crew, the other with Henry Hill himself and Edward McDonald, FBI), 3 documentaries, storyboard to screen comparisons and the theatrical trailer.

Thanks for the blu ray review, nice to see someone giving details of sound and Picture quality rather then what the film is about.
And when are amazon going to stop having DVD reviews for the blu ray.

I know this is a couple of years after you posted this review, but I was just wondering which it applied to as I was looking at the normal blu-ray and the 20th Anniversary edition (US import) and this review appears on both. I didn't know whether it was worth paying the extra £12 for anniversary edition one or it would just be a waste.

The US 20th 'Anniversary Edition' is identical in terms of PQ and audio. The only difference being that it's been re-released in digibook form, and I think it contains an extra disc (a DVD) containing a few more extras.
So, unless you like the Digibook style packaging I'd save your money and just get the UK version.

I wonder why this film is called Goodfellas. All these men are bad.
