    Unfortunately, I do not possess the knowledge of the technical terms used to describe picture quality. Cannot say why it appears non-filmlike to me. But, during well lit sequences, it almost has a soap opera video look to it, instead of film. Perhaps someone else who has seen the blu ray can help out with the "why".

    I know this doesn't count as a movie, but I've been watching my dvd box set of The Brady Bunch (currently in Season 2). I unabashedly love this show.
    I'd really like to see this series get a proper restoration on blu-ray - would gladly re-purchase!

    I'm sure it's something as simple as what sort of filters they used on the production lighting to get the look that you call soap opera looking. Film can look many ways.

    Meet Me In St. Louis (1944): My, my, my, what a beautifully shot movie. It truly shines in glorious Technicolor and the cast - especially the endearing Judy Garland - is simply splendid. Fantastic songs, most of which are well-known classics today, even here in Austria. Truly golden-age Hollywood cinema :angel:

    Broadway Melody of 1940 (1940): I honestly didn't expect too much - all that hoofing? I couldn't imagine a movie highlighting that kind of dance to be all that worthwhile.
    Was I wrong! Like I just wrote on St. Louis, this is Hollywood at its most glorious, its most elegant, its most glamourous and its most fun, too. Fred Astaire is a terrific dancer, but the true star for me is the wonderful Eleanor Powell - to put it with Astaire's drinking sidekick: "What a gal!" Quite simply a beautiful movie.

    Now that's a Disney live action blast from the past. I have no idea what it's about but I'm 99 percent sure I saw it at the movies as a kid.

    It's a charming movie, and completely absorbing despite the minimal plot (will they move or not...) The family just sort of rolls from one event to the next, but stuff just keeps wonderfully happening in a way that's half way between romanticism and real. Minnelli's genius was to balance that.

    It's totally captivating, and it makes me feel very sentimental - even though I have no memories of either 1904 or 1944. Truly a result of fantastic, well-balanced directing.

    Was this as bad as what I remembered it from 1983? Oh hell no. It was MUCH worse than that. What an utter crock. Even with a 20% discount I paid way too much for it.

    Jurassic Park 3 blu

    Now on the pile for the op-shop.
  24. Much of Doctor Detroit clearly doesn't work but there are a few fun scenes. Dan Aykroyd would go on to marry the hot blonde on the cover of that Blu-ray.
