But, Anchorbay/Starz goes the cheap route and just puts the film out in HD
So if you had the Special Edition dvd originally put out on dvd by 20th Century Fox (2000) hold onto that version too
This blu ray is bare (Keep in mind during the start of the dvd boom Anchorbay use to go all out now during the blu ray era not at all)
the disc itself is a 25GB blu-ray disc but, anchorbay couldn't port all the extras on this disc?!?!
The transfer is really nice (If you compare the original special edition dvd to this blu ray it's night and day in video quality)
For a somewhat old catalog title it looks really nice all around
The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio track is passable (could be better but, it could also be much worse)
Why keep the original Special Edition dvd ?
the dvd is THX Certified in 2015/2016 is that a big deal? i guess that all depends
Bonus Features include
1. Audio Commentary track by the late (Director) Harold Ramis,
2. Audio Commentary by Elizabeth Hurley and Trevor Albert
***Making of featurette,
***Costume Design Featurette,
***Still Gallery, plus much more
Those are mostly all very cool "legit" extras
But, if you just like movies and not into extras keeping the original might be a waste
The original Bedazzled while cleaver and enjoyable it's also a massive slow burn
Peter Cook works for a 1976 version of the devil
Dudley Moore (very young) is likable as Stanley Moon
Raquel Welch is the perfect Lust till the end of time
Remaking Bedazzled isn't really a sin compared to if you remake The Exorcist, Wizard of Oz, and Citizen Kane
as far as Hollywood lazy soul sucking remakes this film is a massive upgrade
mostly in part with having such a smart and talented Director in Harold Ramis
Ramis didn't do this film for quick cash you can tell there was love and respect put into this update
Brendan Fraser (Elliot) is much like Dudley Moore likable and grounded in reality he has to sell the performance since each wish changes him in all types of ways. (Maybe one of Fraser's best role's in terms of acting)
Elizabeth Hurley as The Devil (Brilliant out of the box thinking I've seen other reviewers over think This version of the devil
That he's a male pretending to be a female but, that don't fit! Why can't the Devil be a female?
I can honestly buy that the devil could be a woman and Hurley helps sell that x5
her performance isn't breaking any new ground but, she is very good
the sexy British accent and Hurley being stunningly beautiful makes sense that she is the devil
This film overall is a lighthearted silly fun film it's 15 years old and there really hasn't been a film like this since
Which is sad and a bit telling where Comedy's have gone since 2000
This is without a doubt one of Harold Ramis most underrated films 9.4/10
She took Peter Cook's character and murdered it in cold blood. She's a beautiful woman, no doubt. But SHE CANNOT ACT, PEOPLE!!! And apparently, she cannot walk either. I mean, what was with that boppy, bouncy thing she was doing? Was that supposed to be sexy? It totally wasn't. It was just really distracting and annoying. Peter Cook was drop dead gorgeous, but that wasn't what sold his character. His character worked because he was an incredible actor and funny as hell, made funnier by the fact that he and Dudley Moore had mad chemistry together. But Liz Hurley is NOT FUNNY. Not at all. And there was zero chemistry between her and Brendan Fraser, though God bless him, he certainly tried.
She has no rhythm, no range in her facial expressions, no comedic timing, and no feel whatsoever for what makes a person funny and the filmmakers knew it, which is why she spent most of the movie in a bikini or dressed like a call girl. Sexy is all she's got. But the part called for funny, not sexy. She was hopelessly miscast and way, Way, WAY out of her league. Now Sandra Bullock…that is a beautiful woman with a killer body, but she has a genius for comedy. Julia Roberts, same thing. And they're funny in clothing. They don't need to be naked to be entertaining.
All the skimpy costumes Hurley wore were a device strategically designed to distract the male audience from noticing her obvious lack of acting chops. They couldn't even put her in a decent business suit when she was supposedly dressed as a lawyer. That suit was an insult to female attorneys everywhere and it made her look like a stripper ready to pop out of a birthday cake, but what else could they do? Without the sexy wardrobe, she's invisible. Minus Liz Hurley, I'd absolutely have given this movie five stars. Too bad they can't remake the remake with a better actress.
