Great Bluray Transfer for a Great Film!
May 17, 2016
Twilight Time did a great job mastering this movie for Bluray! I'm surprised that Sony/Columbia Pictures didn't bother to do it themselves.
Film grain is very apparent throughout the movie, but it seems to be a very common thing in some older films that I've seen transferred over to High Def. I do wish there were more extra features included like on the original DVD release, but for now only the theatrical trailer is on there. On the audio part it's been remastered in glorious 5.1 via DTS and it includes two commentaries and the "music only" track.
Every time I watch this movie I can't help but wonder why it was not nominated for best picture, best supporting actor (Esai Morales), or best supporting actress (Rosanna DeSoto). My suspicions are that it's because it's an all Latino cast in a Mexican American (Chicano) story).
None-the-less, I believe this movie stands the test of time! Thank you Twilight Time for bringing this movie to bluray!
