Michael Douglas stars as Nick Curran a tough but vulnerable detective. Sharon Stone costars as Catherine Tramell a cold calculating and beautiful novelist with an insatiable sexual appetite. Catherine becomes a prime suspect when her boyfriend is brutally murdered - a crime she had described in her latest novel. Obsessed with cracking the case Nick descends into San Francisco's forbidden underground where suspicions mount bodies fall and he finds within himself an instinct more basic than survival.Special Features*:16.9 Newly remastered Widescreen5.1 Newly remastered English Dolby Surround2.0 English Dolby Digital Audio"Blonde Poison" - Documentary on the making of the film"Cleaning up Basic Instinct" - A montage comparing the TV version to the theatrical versionCommentary with feminist critic Camille PagliaPhoto GalleryDigitally MasteredStoryboard ComparisonsTheatrical TrailerInteractive MenusScene AccessProduction NotesCast and Crew InformationEnglish French and Spanish subtitlesSystem Requirements:Starring: Micael Douglas Sharon Stone George Dzundza and Jeanne Tripplehorn Directed By: Paul Verhoeven Running Length: 127 minutes color This film is presented in "Widescreen" formatFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: MYSTERY/SUSPENSE Rating: R UPC: 012236124726 Manufacturer No: 12472

the 2:35;1 HD transfer does look amazing close to 10/10 quality
the sound mix is 6.1 master mix
but tragically not all the extras have been carried over for some stupid reason
BLONDE POISON Documentary, Cleaning up Basic instinct, screen tests, original Theatrical trailer
is on this blu-ray reissue
the 2 audio commentaries from the old Ultimate edition dvd have been carried over but that's all
SO WHAT'S MISSING.
well of course the Sharon stone interview & sharon stone introduction from the old Ultimate edition dvd
so i give 3 stars for this blu-ray reissue cause not all the extras were carried over
apart from that the HD transfer is excellent
so best to still keep the Ultimate edition dvd just for all the extras
But underneath that calm and calculating mind is a suspected pathological killer and writer, plus bisexual to boot!
I enjoyed the scenes of what was suggestive of San Francisco, but have a hard time figuring how Michael Douglas' character as Nick always seems to find a convenient parking spot in front of his building! If you've ever been to the foggy city, you know that's a rare. Adding to the confusion is the scene at the dance club, which is a replica of New York's Limelight Club set in a church...what the heck is that doing is SF?
I did find the sets of Trammel's homes to be quite accurate. The Divisadero mansion is something you'd expect to find in that area. The seaside home though was actually filmed on location in Carmel, even though it was suppose to suggest Marin. Aside from that, if you didn't realize that fact, you would have never thought otherwise (except some areas of Marin are not close to water).
The ending fades that happened several times was annoying, but it did keep you guessing...was she really the murderess or not?
The Ultimate Edition that is unrated shows a tad more nudity, particularly in Michael Douglas' case, but overall adds nothing too significant to the storyline.
Wouldn't it be better to see more of Stone and the infamous interview process? That in itself is the gem of the movie.
