Movie Reviews

The Hills are Alive in Blu
Richard T. Leafgreen | burbank, CA | 11/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"WOW...that's all I can say. I've been waiting for this one to come out on Blu-ray for quite awhile...and I can truly say, it was worth the wait. Finally, this movie looks like it did in the theater...the colors, details and clarity are amazing...This movie has never looked good on VHS, Laserdisc OR DVD...Finally Blu-ray does it justice. Kudo's to FOX for giving this such a nice treatment. I just bought my copy and watched it all the way through...was only going to watch bits but got caught up all over again in the magic. I even put in the DVD and jumped back and forth to compare...and there just wasn't anything to compare...the Blu-ray blows the old copy away. Just watch the scenes of Do-Re-Mi or the Church Wedding scene and be amazed by what Blu-ray can do...the details in the church are stunning...every detail from the carpet to the candles and gold backgrounds just stand out perfectly...looks as close to the print I saw in the theater last year as I've ever seen...For all those that think only new movies can look good on blu-ray, just look at how wonderful this 45 year old movie looks!!! If you have any doubts about this one...Don't...Run right now and pick it will be glad you did."

"I received the Blu-Ray yesterday. This was actually for my wife. I don't care that much for the movie - just a little too sweet for me. However, It appears most of the reviews on this page are about the standard DVD and not the Blu-Ray. I was very interested in how the transfer would look. I'm not a video expert, but I was very pleased with the quality as well as the extras. My wife has seen the movie about 1000 times and was also pleased with the enhanced quality. Hope this helps...."
Amazing Blu-ray!

"Everyone knows The Sound of Music is a timeless classic. So I am not going to review the fantastic movie, but the quality of the blu-ray. This blu-ray edition of The Sound of Music has excellent picture and audio quality. It is a big step up from the VHS and even the DVD. Those who have a Blu-ray Player need to get this movie on blu-ray. Even if you don't have a blu-ray player right now, but are planning on getting one later on, it comes with a DVD copy. Overall this is a fantastic blu-ray release for all fans of The Sound of Music."
On Blu-ray at last! Absolutely Gorgeous looking.

"Well I've always loved the Sound of Music, since I was a kid. And now finally it's on Blu-ray at last.
As soon as you pop it in (It does take a LONG time to load on my LG BD-390 which in normally fast),
you will notice a HUGE difference from anything you've seen in the past.

This Box Set is very nice. The kids got a kick out of The Hand Painted Music Box included.
Everything else is great too ... Souvenir reprint, Snapshots (Postcards), Hardcover Book.
Very nice presentation when you open it up, and it was shipped in it's own special box
to insure a safe delivery.

One little gripe .. The CD that's included does not match the one being sold individually.
The box says there are 16 tracks, but there's actually 17. The unlisted track is My Favorite Things
which I think is by Lea Michele. On the disc being sold individually there are 24 tracks.
Some are reprise songs, so maybe that doesn't matter, but we are missing Laendler, Entr acte & Finale.
Since this is the Super Box Set, I wish that they had included the full CD as well."
