Was very nice to read Bill Hunt's blurb about Fox planning to finally roll out Moulin Rouge to Blu-ray in the upcoming months. This was sort of unexpected. I talked to Fox about this title a year ago and was told that Baz would personally have to work on the release but was tied up with other projects. Since then, there was a bit of a shakeup at Fox and I really wasn't able to readily pursue any updates on its release. I am just hoping that Baz is involved with the project. Moulin Rouge was a bit of an eye-opener for me. I remember when it was released theatrically, I had no desire to see the film. Didn't seem like the kind of movie I would be interested in. Wasn't until I was given a screener copy prior to its DVD release that I realized what a brilliantly inventive musical this was. It kind of took the an old concept and made it seem so brand new with its incorporation of modern pop music into a musical template. At least, that's the best way I know to describe it. Suffice to say, when the DVD came out Home Theater Forum (with thanks to Peter Staddon) was credited as voting it DVD OF THE YEAR. I had the opportunity to meet Baz Luhrmann and tell him how much the film affected me personally. Haven't watched the DVD in a long time, mostly for the reason that the Dolby Digital track is the way to hear it, and it's defective. In fact, I am not certain it was ever fixed. There is a synch issue where the soundtrack is a half second ahead or behind the dialogue. ....which is why I am so pleased to see this being released in a high resolution format and most assuredly with fixed audio. Will be looking forward to the official press release.
