Moonstruck Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Fall under the delightful spell of MOONSTRUCK, with Cher (Burlesque) as an unlucky-in-love Italian widow who finds romance through the intervention of the Manhattan moon. With her wedding to Johnny (Danny Aiello, Once Upon A Time in America), a man she doesn’t love, just weeks away, she meets and falls hopelessly in love with his younger brother (Nicolas Cage, Leaving Las Vegas). Her dilemma—and her equally passionate and hilariously eccentric family—make for an unforgettable film. Nominated for six Academy Awards®, 

MOONSTRUCK was honored with accolades for Best Actress (Cher), Best Supporting Actress (Olympia Dukakis, Look Who’s Talking), and Best Original Screenplay.

Review: Moonstruck is a classic Cher film that really brought Nicholas Cage into the forefront as an actor.  The movie is regarded as one of the best films of the 1980s and one of the best romantic comedies of the era.  Cher plays a lovetorn widow with ease and her crazy family really adds to the mix.  In this film she basically is giving up and marrying this man she doesn't love, when suddenly she falls for his little brother.  Of course, insanity ensues and this charming little film managed to bring in some Academy Awards!

The movie looks great on blu-ray.  I didn't notice any grain or disturbance.  The colors are vivid and the skin tones look fantastic.  I was very pleased with the transfer into high-definition.  This one is a winner!
