Excerpt: Considering most of you will know the critical consensus on the classic 1986 film Blue Velvet, I will try to spend as little time discussing the film itself and instead focus on what is bringing the majority of you to this products page: the blu ray itself. I have nothing but favourable things to say about the blu-ray release, the picture is wonderful and rich and really shows how well the film was shot with the strong colors (although some scenes have slight grain and...
Excerpt: I will not focus on the mastery of the film itself, because people should know by now the critical consensus on this classic 1986 film and my favorite film of all time (and certainly by favorite Lynch, alongside Mulholland Dr.). Instead, I will focus on the blu-ray itself which is the drawing people for many who visit this page. It is excellent put together, and the video is almost perfect and extremely sharp minus a few scenes (particularly the darker ones).
Excerpt: Both young actors Laura Dern and Kyle MacLachlan (who played later in David Lynchs Mystery-Crime "Twin Peaks") are great but the best performing made Dennis Hopper. Set and Camera/Color are amazing. The Bonus-Features are very interesting. The Blu-Ray contains not only English Soundtrack, it contains also a german Soundtrack and the Disc is Code-free. The Picture Quality is good but not the best.
One of the greatest movies ever made finally makes it to Blu-ray

Excerpt: There's really no need for me to go into the details of how great Blue Velvet is, because everybody already knows that. Lynch's vision of middle-town American decadence transcends traditional storytelling, and is worthy of multiple viewings, and for a world that includes SALO, how can the film really be called "depraved?" This blu-ray is everything we could hope for, but there is a PROBLEM with the blu-ray reviewer Jeffrey Kauffman's analysis of the extra content.
Excerpt: The candy-colored clown they call the sandman, tiptoes to my room every night. Just to sprinkle stardust and to whisper: "Go to sleep, everything is alright" ("In Dreams" by Roy Orbison) http://youtu.be/EDZItMrmtNI Once we settle into the beauty, calm and serenity that is Lumberton, USA, after meandering montage of beautiful, serene shots set to Bobby Vinton's crooning of the song, "Blue Velvet" http://youtu.be/I6J4JUsWwNQ - we are shocked back into startling reality...
Excerpt: "It's a strange world." "Now it's dark." These themes frequently explored by David Lynch is no better realized than in his 1986 masterpiece, BLUE VELVET. The characters and situations not only demonstrate the premise, but periodically state those very words, as if to remind the audience that everything is not always what it seems.
The best film of the 1980s and one of the greatest of all time

Excerpt: The brutally honest performances, visionary aesthetic and the beautiful style make Blue Velvet an absolutely unmissable film and a wonderful addition to Blu Ray. Despite the films fame and notoriety, all these years later, the film still seems completely original, invigorating and unsurpassed. Everyone assumes that Blue Velvet opens with the infamous ear-in-the-grass scene, but the film's opening is even more disturbing than that.
