Default 'Memphis Belle' - High-Def Digest Review

Steven has reviewed 'Memphis Belle'. He says this is an old fashioned but engaging war drama. This Blu-ray's video transfer is exceptional. The audio mix is equally strong. Recommended.

"...we even get an impromptu musical performance featuring the irresistibly smooth vocal stylings of one Harry Connick Jr. -- and come on, how many other war flicks can boast such a captivating feat?" - ummm...how about every cheesy war movie starring Elvis?

I LOVED this movie...got it on Laser Disc back in the 90's. Was one of 2 or 3 movies (at the time) that impressed my friends and I with the use of surround sound. My system wasn't the best (Carver amp/pre-amp driving Bose speakers), but it was the best of our group of guys in the barracks at Pearl. When the plane starts getting hit by flak, the rear speakers really picked that up and we all got a kick out of it. Very happy to see this out on Blu and nice to see the video is good...my DVD version is so scratched now that it's almost not watchable. Thanks for the review! Agree that it's a good, but slightly flawed, movie.
