4.0 out of 5 stars Really Enjoyable and Lovely in Hi-Def, 3 Feb. 2008
This review is from: Viva Las Vegas [Blu-ray] [1964] [US Import] [1963] (Blu-ray)
I bought this for our UK Playstation 3 simply because it gets good write-ups for the hi-def transfer and I like the theme song, although I'd never seen it before. It turned out to be one of the most enjoyable films I've seen in a long time. The colours are bright and cheerful, most of the songs are catchy and Ann-Margret is just great to watch. What I like most is that she really seems to be enjoying herself throughout the film, particularly in the dance scenes. My favourite scene was the What'd I Say routine, where Ann-Margret just seems to be having a whale of a time. We watched the film in 1080i and were very impressed, especially in the close-ups. Even the neon scenes of the Strip looked very clear, with no noticeable bleeding of the colours. I played it in True HD sound, but to be honest didn't hear anything from the surrounds, although there was plenty of direction from the fronts. As a film, it's definitely one for cheering you up on a wet Sunday afternoon, and as a Hi-Def purchase it's well worth the money for the extra clarity of the bright colours. Hard to believe it's now 45 years old.

Hmmm, seem to have forgot that Elvis was in the movie didn't you?
