7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Nov. 13 2012
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
VIDEO:

'Singin' in the Rain' arrives at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.37:1 encode. Warner Bros. is rejuvenating catalog classics with loving remasters and impressive video transfers. 'Singin' in the Rain' is given a similar treatment; just not one that lives up to the high standards set by 'Ben-Hur' and 'Casablanca'.

Positive: Colours have been granted new life. Primaries are gorgeous. Skintones are lovely (albeit a touch over-saturated now and again). Black levels are rich and savory, and contrast does not falter. Moreover, print scratches and blemishes are nowhere to be found. Grain, though light, is pleasant and consistent.

Negative: The film's inherent softness can be prohibitive, and a noticeable waxiness afflicts a number of closeups and midrange shots, probably due to artificial sharpening. Mild to moderate edge halos are present throughout the film.

Overall, it is still a vast improvement over previous DVD releases (4/5)

AUDIO:

The high point of Warner's AV presentation is undoubtedly its carefully mixed DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which retains the humble qualities of the film's original monoaural sound design while allowing Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed's music to flourish across the entire soundfield. Dialogue and song lyrics are clean, clear and perfectly prioritized, be it Gene Kelly's dulcet singing voice, Donald O'Connor's chirpy quips and verbal gymnastics, or Debbie Reynolds' velvet-smooth tone. Various songs, from 'Good Morning' to 'Moses Supposes' to 'Make 'Em Laugh' to 'You Were Meant for Me' are a joy to listen to. The orchestra's instrumentation is also extremely well done, just a full, utterly satisfying sound from beginning to end.

... Unfortunately, this 2-disc "improvement" is a [disappointment]. The digitally remastered sound is harsh and grungy. Worst of all, there's a horrendous piece of censorship in Gene and Cyd's classic Broadway Melody dance number, a cut so obvious that it verges on sheer, criminal stupidity. I'm returning this 2-disc edition and searching for an uncut version to replace my ancient home-made VHS tape from the early 80's off a PBS station, where this dance scene is complete (and really gorgeous). What a shame.

5 Stars for the Musical 0 Stars for the DVD conversion. I can't say enough about the movie, I've loved it for years. However, this is one of the worst presentations of a Technicolor film available. It was as though the source media was an old faded copy that had the brightness turned up and color over driven to make up for it. Some scenes had the brightness so high it was dificult to make out the facial features of a sweet Debbie Reynolds. They should have presented it faded. Seriously consider waiting for a restored version.

First off, let me reiterate that this truly is one of the best movies, musical or otherwise, of all time. My issue is with the utter lack of respect with which Warner now treats this movie. There are three things I have to say: 1) I love this movie; 2) I love DVD; 3) seek out the old widescreen VHS (which also has a good, long interview with writers Comden & Green as well as Debbie Reynolds singing "You are My Lucky Star", a great sequence unfortunately cut from the final version).

This musical is wonderful; it's one of my family's favorites. The DVD, however, doesn't do it justice. It is in pan and scan format with poor video transfer. I cast my vote for a proper DVD that this classic film deserves. Criterion?

Format: DVD
Classic film. No one can dispute that. So why are there virually no extras on a DVD of the greatest movie musical ever made? Why are there no bios on anyone associated with the film? Why does the color for the first half of the film look like faded Technicolor? Why did the studio not choose to take the time or spend the money needed to digitally restore the film that was spent on Sound of Music or My Fair Lady? OK. It would cost more, but fans of this movie would be willing to pay for it, and all the other wonderful MGM movies musical of the 50s.
...Give us the extras - let us know the story of the movie, produce a feature length documentary, give us the re-mixed isolated soundtrack, do something besides this. Correct the color, and remix the ST in DTS. Package in in a two DVD set and charge me 30 bucks. I'd buy it. But the current release version is a real disappointment. The singin', dancin', and actin' in this film deserve better.

Format: DVD
I have the "40th Anniversary edition" video tape of this great movie, released in 1992 (in Australia at least), which features (along with the theatrical trailer), a deleted sequence of Debbie Reynolds singing "You Are My Lucky Star" and reminiscences from writers Betty Comden and Adolph Green (which are wonderful!). The lack of these is the only reason I'm taking a star off my rating for the DVD. The film is suberb (and sounds and looks great on DVD)

Singin' in the Rain is one of my favorite films, though I am not a fan of musicals. It is not only a celebration of singing, dancing, Gene Kelly, and vaudeville antics, it is a celebration of the medium of film. Though it was made at a time when Hollywood was famous for its rigid and creativity-stifling production practices, Singin' in the Rain is remembered as a landmark of innovation and style.
Despite this being both one of the greatest and one of the most popular films of all time, MGM (and now Warner) has released it as a sub-par dvd. It lacks any real special features (except for the trailer), though I imagine there are a number of documentaries and perhaps interviews about the film, and certainly many qualified film historians that would have been willing to record a commentary track.
The image quality is lacking. This is the worst-looking dvd that I own from a major studio (Warner hasn't remastered for the rerelease). It is exceptionally soft, and digital artifacting abounds. The colors are off, and the print could certainly be cleaned up. It was probably duped from a laserdisc. This film would truly benefit from a restoration and re-release (like some of Hitchcock's films have gotten).
If you love the movie, by all means buy the disc, but if you own the VHS or Laserdisc copy (that isn't all worn out), I'd hold out for a special edition, because the dvd won't look any better than a laserdisc, and not that much better than VHS. What a fantastic film.
