4.0 out of 5 stars Funny September 27, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Regardless of how many times I have seen this movie, I always look forward to certain parts, and I am unable to resist seeing it just one more time. I could never categorize this movie as great, or even a classic; it is just an enjoyable comedy.

As the title suggests, this movie is about a group of hyper-stereotypical nerds. Leading the pack are Robert Carradine and Anthony Edwards. In addition are a number of other strong supporting characters, including an alternative lifestyle African-American, an Asian, a pint-sized genius, a classic coke-bottle-glasses geek, and a character aptly named "Booger." Each character is a caricature, and yet they have their basis in reality as I can attest.

This movie focuses on a band of college students frustrated with their inability to be recognized in a school where the football team seems to always have the best of everything. In the real world, Nerds are rarely members of cliques or jocks. You may almost guarantee that they do not hang out with the cool people. The end result is that Nerds almost always make sacrifices. However, the group of Nerds in this movie refuses to be continually kicked around.

After suffering multiple insults, the Tri-Lam's (Lambda-Lambda-Lambda) and the Omega-Mu's combine forces to attempt to take over the presidency of the Greek Council. The contest between the Tri-Lam's and Omega-Mu's against the jock/cheerleader team of the Alpha-Beta's and Pi-Delta-Pi's yields multiple funny moments, and a surprise or two meant for the over-18 crowd. One high point of this movie is the musical number by the Tri-Lam's and Omega-Mu's and another is the end of the movie when the Nerds finally make their point.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nerds RULE on Blu Ray! May 5, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
'Revenge of the Nerds' was a mainstay video rental back in the day for myself and my friends. Between this film and 'Bachelor Party' we must have played those tired old VHS tapes a good 20 times or more during the 80's. I was hopeful and just a bit excited over finally getting to see this movie in 1080p and presented in it's original widescreen aspect ratio. Arguably an 80's classic and a fond favorite of mine!

With that said, this review will focus on the video and audio quality, rather than the film itself. We have all waited many long years for this Blu Ray release and I for one had high hopes. So how does it look in High Definition?

In a word............. G R E A T ! Folks, this was a fairly low budget feature but for the most part things were done correctly during production and it shows in this well above average AVC encoded transfer.

The two best things about this transfer are the color and the REAL sharpness of the image , which is achieved not be overuse of edge enhancement, but because the negative scanned looks REALLY good to begin with.

The original color timing appears to have been left as is and that is a very good thing. Colors pop all over the place. Yes there are a few drab shots here and there, but overall 'Nerds' is vibrant looking and at times pops right off the screen. GREAT job! Add to that the fact that no untoward usage of DNR or Edge Enhancement rears it's ugly head and you have a winner here. ( i watched this upconverted to 4K on an LG LA9700 display and there were no obvious flaws revealed)

Basically, the only time the image looks even remotely poor is during some of the darker scenes, where a bit of noisy looking grain occasionally rears it's ugly head.

There's just something about these comedies from the 80's that will always put a smile on the face of those of us who remember watching them for the first time back then, and hopefully, will also put a smile on the face of those of the younger generation who are discovering them now. "Revenge of the Nerds" is by far way up there among the better comedies from that decade. Sure, there's vulgarity here and there, but that doesn't take away from the humor and overall enjoyment. And one has to remember that the often un-politically correct aspect of many characters was common in the 80's.

And now this great film has finally gotten a DVD release that does it justice. The audio commentary by Jeff Kanew, Robert Carradine, Timothy Busfield and Curtis Armstrong is quite insightful and of course humorous, basically what one would expect. The "I'm a nerd, and I'm pretty proud of it" featurette has several of the actors talk about their experiences playing their roles. Nothing too spectacular, but definitely worth a look. The "Revenge of the Nerds" television pilot is certainly a nice feature, although mainly for novelty's sake. The 6 deleted scenes are "Stan Owes Nerd Money," "Gilbert Tells Judy How He Feels," "Tri-Lamb Vegas Convention," "Meet Uncle Meyer," "Chariot Race" and "Nerds Catch Jocks Destroying Their House." And finally, there is the trailer and a sneek peak of "Revenge of the Nerds 2: Nerds in Paradise." The DVD presentation offers a fairly nice transfer (a little grainy in some parts, which I suppose we can live with) and good sound quality-make sure to turn the volume way up for the Talent Show scene.

What else is there to say? If you're a fan, go out NOW and get this. Long live the Nerds!

And as a side note, the DVD insert has an advertisement for the "One Size Fits All" special edition of "Porky's," soon to be released. Be on the lookout for that too.

This was one of my favorite movies in this genre back in the 80s. Today the plot seems a little superficial and predictable, but only in retrospect. Read more
