Default 'Million Dollar Baby: 10th Anniversary Edition' - High-Def Digest Review

David has reviewed 'Million Dollar Baby: 10th Anniversary Edition.' He says the video transfer, which was always good, remains the same. The addition of high-def audio is worth the extra expense, especially if you don't have this already. Read on for all the details.

3 1/2 Stars for this movie? You have got to be kidding. The site give Bad Grandpa 4 stars though? I realize that different reviewers have different opinions but this is pretty bad.

There's no better way to celebrate the 9th anniversary of this movie (released 1/28/2005) than with a 10th anniversary Blu-ray.

It's a great film. This review reminds me to drag out my HD-DVD for a fresh viewing . .

In the interest of posting a timely review, we have reprinted the original review of the movie, written at the time of its 2006 Blu-ray release.

I disagree with the original reviewer, too. I think 'Million Dollar Baby' is a fantastic film, filled with excellent performances, and directed with a firmness and grace that keeps the story from becoming overly sentimental. Personally, I would give it 4-1/2 stars.

Don't see it, really. As much as I love Clint's directorial work this was, for me, lazy film making and totally by numbers. I'm sure I'm in the minority here - won't be the first time and is unlikely to be the last! - but this was one of the least deserving best movie oscars of all time...

Good? Yes. Best Picture of 2004? I forgot this won. It wasn't really Best Picture good.

Though looking back at the nominees that year:
Aviator, Finding Neverland, Ray, Sideways

There are good films there, but 10 years later, nothing stands out as greatness to me.

It won Best Picture on Feb 27, 2005 for films of 2004. It probably did the small
release in LA & NY thing in Dec 2004 before a 2005 nationwide release.

I'd have given Million Dollar Baby 2 1/2 or 3 stars. Opinions differ in the other direction too, you know.
