Moulin Rouge Blu-Ray Review

Moulin Rouge Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Widely credited with reinventing the modern movie musical, Moulin Rouge! exploded onto screens when it debuted in 2001. Celebrating some of the best-loved popular music of the twentieth century, the film found audiences ready to enjoy the same break-into-song storytelling currently enjoying its latest reincarnation in the popular television series Glee.

Along with a multi-platinum selling soundtrack led by the single “Lady Marmalade,” the film went on to broadly influence fashion, music, design and popular culture, and was nominated for eight Academy Awards® including Best Picture, winning two for Catherine Martin’s production design and costume design.

Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Australia) sizzles in her Oscar®-nominated role as Satine, the seductive courtesan and star of a popular French nightclub that caters to society’s decadent elite. When she unwittingly draws Christian, a struggling writer played by Ewan McGregor (Amelia), into her spell, true love turns to tragedy. Moulin Rouge! offers a kaleidoscopic ride through a world of song, dance, romance and drama that celebrates truth, beauty, freedom and above all things, love

Review: Moulin Rouge is the musical for people that hate musicals.  I mean that in a good way.  A lot of guys don't get into musicals, but Moulin Rouge is one of those amazing films that draws you in with modern music that is re-invented and used by the fi'm's characters in such a dynamic way that its ultra-enjoyable.  The movie examines the bohemian movement in Paris and centers around a tragic love story.  The characters sing tracks from everyone from Madonna to Elton John and the Beatles.

Moulin Rouge already has a great reputation.  Now, its coming to blu-ray and the big question is, how does it look?  Is this new version worth it?  A resounding YES comes from the Legion!  The film looks amazing in high-definition and the transfer is PERFECT.  Beyond perfect even.  The film looks great and this is the best possible way to own it!
