nostalgia classic with a great commentary
27 September 2018
This (Blu-Ray) is definitely the best the film has ever looked. Yes, there is grain but it doesn't matter here. The 80s were an experimental time for cheaper film stock and optical/digital effects. The grain is 'of it's time' and shouldn't hinder any enjoyment of the film.The film had a troubled production and its great to see it, in great condition, with the added bonus of a director commentary. Speaking of which, the commentary is very informative and a worthwhile addition. From the opening credits, to the end titles, the Alan Silvestri soundtrack excels and has never sounded so good. The film may be 2.0 audio but that can be ok. My amp made good use of all speakers in 'theatre dimensional' mode and the 80s synth made good use of the subwoofer. An excellent upgrade for fans of the film and usually at a bargain price.
