Taylor Hackford's An Officer and a Gentleman, which is unbelievably thirty years old, is a terrifically entertaining film that very nicely stands the test of time.


The new WB release of the Paramount production, as mastered by Paramount, is as film-like as it needs to be for a Blu-ray.


Wonderfully detailed image, and far more easily, superb audio in DTS-MA HD.


An easy one.


Image - 4.5


Audio - 5


With no handicap.  Just a great Blu-ray presentation.


Highly Recommended

I'm aching for another BD fight so I'll probably watch this in the next 24 hours to see if I agree or disagree with your expert opinion. :D

Completely agree. I've been waiting a long time for this title on Blu-ray and it was worth the wait.

After viewing this BD in its entirety, I found myself agreeing with RAH's opinion after all.  By the way, a very good film with an interesting commentary from Hackford.

I remember absolutely loving this film back in the day.  But who didn't?  It was iconic in so many ways.  Having not seen it for a couple of decades, I admit to having wondered if it would now stand the test of time.  Sounds like i should quit wondering, and enjoy.

Happy to hear it, RAH.  This is a crowd-pleaser that I think transcends the "chick flick" label and in the 30 years since its release is admirably realistic and even a little gritty in a way that it most definitely wouldn't be were it made for the same demographic today.

It has been years since I watched this, but I'll be darned if each time I watch it I like it more.  Fantastic film, and like RAH states a great presentation on Blu-Ray!
