You already know the movie, and it is one of your all-time favorites. I will not try to convince you how great it is. I will just discuss the Blu-ray disc.
This is a very good transfer/remastering, or whatever they call it. The sound was terrific. Music and speech were well-balanced. The video was very good, too. The only thing I noticed was in the scene where they go up in the ship and through the vortex. That scene seemed off-color. But, my memory could be flawed--it has been several years since I watched the movie on tv.
Extras: We watched the theatrical trailer, which really highlighted the difference between the original and the Blu-ray. I like the upgrade. We also watched the original Flash Gordon with Buster Crabbe. Holy cow! I was surprised how the movie, to a degree, followed the original black and white serial. It is pretty short, so don't miss this.
But this film has a great script [very tongue in cheek] and is visually stunning. So much so that it is worth its weight in hot pink silk satin. And well worth waiting for a re-release if doctored up to look sharp.
Now if they'd just release "Prospero's Books"!
