Product Description

Amazon.ca

Strife-torn America wanted a meat-and-potatoes romance in the late '60s, and the country embraced Erich Segal's slim, generic-sounding novel in a big way. It did so again for the film adaptation in 1970, starring Ryan O'Neal as a law student who defies his rich and powerful father (Ray Milland) on every issue, including the former's love for a music student (Ali MacGraw). The two marry, start life together...and then the Grim Reaper turns up at the door. Directed by Arthur Hiller (The In-Laws), the film ends up lacking the kind of stylistic boost that might have made it a must-see for the ages. But its faithfulness to the book's uncomplicated and, yes, moving intentions is pretty solid. O'Neal is convincing as a nice guy who's as bullheaded in his own way as his steely father (a nice job by Milland), and MacGraw has a way of getting under one's skin. A viewer just has to try not laughing at the refrain, "Love means never having to say you're sorry." --Tom Keogh

By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

This 42 year old movie arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.78:1 encode. For a low-budget film, this new transfer is much improved over the previous DVD counterpart. Contrast is surprisingly sharp and consistent, with crisp, clean whites, giving the presentation an attractive, rejuvenated appearance. Fine object and textural details can often be remarkable, revealing very distinct lines around buildings, clothing and hair. Black levels are quite impressive and accurate. Colours are very bold, especially the red and blue (like bright red dresses and the crimson Harvard hockey jersey). Skin tone is very natural. Overall, it is a very pleasing video transfer. (4.0/5)

AUDIO:

Although the back cover showed that the audio was only in Dolby Digital Mono, this movie does have a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack (not noted on the cover). If the story itself isn't enough to pull at the heartstrings, then Francis Lai's timeless score should finish the job on this beautiful soundtrack. The music plays an important role in the narrative. It fills the entire soundstage with excellent clarity and an outstanding mid-range, differentiating between each individual key of the piano and the rest of the score's orchestration. Dialogue reproduction is superb, delivering even the whispered conversations with exceptional intelligibility.

We are all very familiar with the title theme, and probably have the original soundtrack album. Other tracks, like Snow Frolic, Mozart: Sonata In F Major, Skating In Central Park, Bach's Concerto No. 3 in D Major, are all oh so beautiful and soothing, fitting snugly with the video.

This movie was nominated for 7 Academy Awards, and Francis Lai deservedly walked away with the Oscar for Best Original Score.

4.0 out of 5 stars an unorthodox love story Oct. 5 2010
By falcon
Format:DVD
this is an unorthodox romantic drama.it doesn't follow all the typical conventions of the genre.the characters and their action aren't typical.and the movie isn't overly maudlin or sentimental.in fact,it has almost none of that.but it works.sure it does tug on the heart strings,but in a way that doesn't feel like manipulation it's very subtle.credit that to the writing of Eric Segal.the the two main characters,Jennifer Cavalleri(Ali MacGraw)and Oliver Barrett IV(Ryan O'Neal)aren't what you would call likable,yet they tend to endear themselves to you through the course of the film,enough that you do end up caring about them.overall,i was drawn in to the story from the get go right to the end credits.for me,Love Story is a 4/5

2.0 out of 5 stars To be honest, it could have been better June 7 2004
Format:DVD
After reading the book "Love Story" and sobbing about the ending of the of the book when Jenny dies, I wasn't quite normal for a few days, the story just stuck in my mind. I knew that there was a movie based on the book out there and about a month after reading the book I saw the movie. To be brutally honest the movie didn't have the punch and the emotion that the book had had on me. It just seemed kind of choppy, like somebody was going scissor happy in the editing room in 1970. I am not going to say anything about the acting because who am I to give acting directions. I just want to say that we should feel that way the actors portraying the characters feel, and obviously I did because I felt totally disconnected with the characters.{okay, after seeing th movie I found out that Erich Segal had actually written the screen play before actually writing the book} I don't feel that it would be an insult to say that there should be a remake of the movie "Love Story" because with the technology and the acting skills of today's actors, producers and directors and what not, it could be great.

1.0 out of 5 stars what's all the hype about? Dec 3 2002
By Spike
Format:DVD
The film is stilted, overacted, theatrical. The dialog delivery? It was like Oliver and Jennifer were reading from a script. When one hardly finishes saying something, the other is ready with a retort! "Brrrrrrk" it comes out! "Love Story" is not as boring a movie as it is... uh... phoney. You want to watch a real love story to get those tear ducts working watch "Waking The Dead" with Billy Crudup and Jennifer Connelly. Now that's what I call a good script, good acting, realistic and and heartbreaker of a movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Watching the Oldies Sept. 22 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I received this item as expected and there were no issues with my order. This film was another movie that I had heard much about but had never seen. I had most often heard of it referred to as 'the greatest love story every told' but I may have to disagree. The basis for the story was great and tragic, but it suffered from a lack of story telling - it didn't flow well, it felt like there were big gaps and the characters needed to be developed more as well. Unfortunately I also felt that it was also not the best acting. Ali MacGraw was not believable most of the time, Ryan O'Neill was only slightly better. I would still recommend seeing it, but keep your expectations in check.

I've always loved this movie and when I ordered it, I received it within days. There was a little glitch in it so I only gave it 4 stars, otherwise it's excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Love Story" is a good love story Sept. 1 2001
By jao
Format:VHS Tape
In "Love Story," a rich guy, Oliver (Ryan O'Neal), and a poor girl, Jennifer (Ali MacGraw), fall in love while both are attending Harvard University. When you see the two characters, it's hard to see how a smart talking music girl and a rich hockey player could possibly be right for each other, but they'll show you how it can be done. But it won't be an easy road to travel because they both have their separate problems/situations to deal with, such as Oliver's dad not being too fond of people unless they're very successful and rich.
I watched "Love Story" because my dad said it was his favorite movie of all time and that it's the only movie he's ever went to the theatre to watch twice, so I thought that it really had to be a good movie. I did like "Love Story," even though I wouldn't call it one of my favorite movies of all time....I'm more the action, sci-fi, comedy, and horror movie type.
"Love Story" is good because it seems realistic, just like two normal people who are real different from each other might act in a real life relationship. Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw brought their acting skills and used them in this love story of a movie. If you like love stories, I recommend purchasing "Love Story."
