Budgeted at $11 million, despite the criticism the film received from critics, "Cocktail" would go on to make over $171 million. The film would continue to show that Tom Cruise was Hollywood's golden child and that every film he would star in, would literally become a box office success.
And now, nearly 25 years later, "Cocktail" has made its debut on Blu-ray courtesy of Touchstone Home Entertainment.
"Cocktail" is presented in 1080p High Definition (1:85:1). One of the benefits of "Cocktail" is the fact that it has one of the most talented, award-winning cinematographer's in Hollywood working on the film. Dean Semler is known for his work on film such as "Dances with Wolves", "2012″, "Secretariat", "Last Action Hero", to name a few. But what he brings to "Cocktail" is a darker feel when showcasing New York City and vibrancy when the location shifts to Jamaica.
While the film is a late '80s film, the good news is that there is no heavy DNR, so the film does maintain ts grain and detail. In fact, the Blu-ray is very good upgrade from its DVD counterpart. While watching the film, I didn't notice any artifacts nor did I see any banding. Skin tones were natural, black levels were nice and deep and "Cocktail" looks great on Blu-ray!
AUDIO & SUBTITLES:
"Cocktail" is presented in English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, French and Spanish 2.0 Dolby Digital.Read more ›

There are about 4 minutes of cool cocktail mixing in this entire movie. Imagine if "Top Gun" was titled "Volleyball"Published 4 days ago by James Howard
I absolutely love this movie. It's not Hamlet, but a fun and enjoyable 80s flick that I cannot help but watch whenever it is on television. I love the soundtrack, too.Published 1 month ago by Mackenzie
