4.0 out of 5 stars Blu-ray Review, 16 Aug 2012
This review is from: Adventures in Babysitting: 25th Anniversary Ed [Blu-ray] [1987] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Read any one of the reviews here for a summary of the film itself. It's a great film and I agree with everyone here....and, it's because I agree with them that I decided to buy this blu-ray once I knew it was region free.
I ordered mine direct from Amazon.com and I've just finished watching it. It's been about seven years since I last watched this film, and I'm very pleased to say that I still enjoyed every minute of it.
But, this is a review of the blu-ray and I have to be honest - it's NOT as good as I'd hoped it would be. BUT...it's a lot better than the reviews on Amazon.com would have you believe. I'm really glad I didn't read any of the reviews on there; because if I had I may have re-thought my decision to buy this. Yes, there is some grain - especially on some of the indoor and night scenes; and, yes, there are a couple of moments when I did think "that doesn't look very good". However, all of this is outweighed by the rest of the film which looks great. The opening sequence as Chris dances around her bedroom to 'Then He Kissed Me' is a joy to behold in high def; having always looked pretty bad on DVD.
Personally, I think this is well worth the upgrade to blu; but ONLY if you really love the film. There are no real extras to speak of (despite the 25th Anniversary tag) with only a bunch of trailers present. But, the upgrade to a DTS soundtrack makes up for that in my opinion.
I certainly won't hesitate to buy more of Disney/Touchstone back catalogue releases as they come out (coming soon are Hocus Pocus and Beaches; both of which I will be buying!).
