The transition to Blu-ray of Tim Burton's Beetlejuice sets a very high standard for older movies making this move. The colors are eye-popping - while Tim Burton sets are always well envisioned and most often otherworldly, Blu-ray gives the viewer a new visual experience of this movie. Almost every scene is beautifully surreal.
Happily, the sound is equally outstanding. The Danny Elfman soundtrack is better than ever and the scene around the dinner table when the guests are possessed to break out into a Harry Belafonte song reaches a new level of hilarity.
Though this is an older movie it doesn't look it (other than a few dated special effects). It remains a superior effort for both Burton and Michael Keaton who creates a truly unforgettable character in the title role. If you liked this movie, you'll love the Blu-ray.
