    I'm looking to purchase this one for sure when it's released on the 6th but surprisingly haven't seen any reviews of this one yet? Has anyone seen any??

    Insights?

    Perfect audio.

    Perfect picture with proper film grain.

    Proper aspect ratio.

    All the technical ingredients are in place.

    While not art, a terrific film from Alan Parker, which seems to have gotten better with a bit of age.

    Recommended.

    Almost in time for the new Fame reality show with Debbie Allen as host, which starts this Wednesday with a 2-hour premier.

    I have scanned through parts of this disc and all I can say is WOW ! I never expected this film to look this good, it's 23 yrs old and looks like it was shot recently!! I don't know what Warner is doing in their film restoration department but everyone else needs to follow suit!!

    Also they've done right by the special features. I just love the video commentary viewing option where some of the cast and Alan Parker chime in!

    Biggest surprise thus far is that the designer Isaac Mizrahi was in the film (per Alan Parker). Can't wait to get more tidbits when I have a chance for a proper sit down!!

    Finally had a chance to view it [​IMG] . I also took a walk through the commentary (very enlightening -- Parker apparently was not well liked by the cast and vice-a-versa). One of my favorites from the 80's with a bit of a 70's flavor [​IMG] . Highly recommended per the above discussion and my own observations [​IMG] .

    Joel
