South Pacific on Blu-ray.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: South Pacific [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
South Pacific is now available on Blu-ray and all fans of the movie should be exultant! This is a splendid Blu-ray disc and provides much better picture quality than the DVD. The colours are good, the images are startlingly clear and there is considerable depth of focus. I am particularly pleased to report that although there is minimal grain in the images, they do not seem to have been subjected to digital noise reduction (DNR) to make them more acceptable to young viewers who don't know what film looks like. (Other 20th Century Fox Blu-ray discs such as Patton and The Longest Day have been severely damaged by clumsy and excessive use of DNR.)
I strongly recommend this Blu-ray disc to all fans of South Pacific and to all Home Theatre fans who love watching High Definition discs.

It does look stunning that's for sure. Not quite as stunning as the original Todd-AO prints, but pretty damned good. I love this film with a passion. It's everything that stage to screen musicals rarely achieve. I screened it, way back then, and the impact is still with me. Today, viewers would have no idea about the impact it had. It's gorgeous.
