Thelma and Louise 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Directed by action master Ridley Scott (Hannibal, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down) from an Oscar(r)-winning* screenplay by Callie Khouri, Thelma & Louise is an "exhilarating" (The Washington Post), full-throttle adventure hailed as one of the best road movies of all time! Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis star as accidental outlaws on a desperate flight across the Southwest after a tragic incident at a roadside bar. With a determined detective (Harvey Keitel) on their trail, a sweet-talking hitchhiker (Brad Pitt) in their path and a string of crimes in their wake, their journey alternates between hilarious, high-speed thrill ride and empowering personal odyssey even as the law closes in. *1991: Original Screenplay

Review: Thelma and Louise is the film that made Brad Pitt a star.  Its also one of the most memorable films of the 1990s.  The movie starred Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis as the feminist icons that the nation was yearning for at the moment.  This movie could've easily been dry, but it was directed by action movie legend Ridley Scott (Alien) and so it actually turned out to be a film that was accessible to everyone.  Its that accessibility that has made it a cult classic and a stamp on culture for so long.

The film is now on blu-ray for its 20th anniversary.  This is one that we hadn't re-purchased since it came onto VHS, so I was quite happy to see a high-definition transfer, although I was admittedly nervous about the quality.  Fortunately, it is free of grain and thought its soft in places, its generally a great improvement over the original DVD release.
