Product Description

Product Description

Experience legendary actor Paul Newman in the role that earned him an Academy Award(R) (Best Actor, 1986, THE COLOR OF MONEY). Newman joins Hollywood megastar Tom Cruise (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE -- GHOST PROTOCOL) in Academy Award-winning Martin Scorsese's (Best Director, 2006, THE DEPARTED) brilliant and powerful drama, THE COLOR OF MONEY -- now available for the first time on Blu-ray with an astonishing digital transfer. Revisiting one of his most memorable roles, Newman stars as Fast Eddie Felson from THE HUSTLER. Eddie forms a profitable alliance with the flashy and talented young pool shark Vince (Cruise), but all bets are off when Vince's arrogance costs them more than just a few matches. Celebrate the 25th anniversary of this dazzling classic -- now better than ever on Blu-ray!

Martin Scorsese handles directing duties in this 1986 sequel to the classic 1961 film The Hustler, which marks the return of Paul Newman to the role of pool shark Fast Eddie Felson. Anxious to break into the big time again, Eddie finds a talented protégé (Tom Cruise) to groom; but with the addition of the latter's manipulative girlfriend (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) and the wild streak in Cruise's character, the trio make for a fascinating portrait in group psychology. The cast is brilliant, the script by Richard Price (Clockers) is a paragon of tightly controlled character study and drama (at least in the film's first half), and Scorsese and cinematographer Michael Ballhaus make an ornate show of the collision and flight of pool balls through space--something of a metaphor for the dynamics among the three principals. The film is generally regarded as weaker in its second half, and rightly so, as everything that was interesting in the first place disappears. Still, Newman won a deserved Oscar for his performance. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This might be the worst transfer I've ever seen on a blu-ray. This is no better then the dvd, so stay away from this release until a new transfer comes out.

Vince (Tom Cruise) is no Fast Eddie (Paul Newman). The absence of a major protagonist like Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason) makes this flick a tepid sequel to far superior The Hustler.

HD Picture? June 5 2012
By ????????? - Published on
I was looking forward to picking this up on blu ray and couldn't be more disappointed in the picture quality of this disc. Most disappointing blu ray disc purchase I've made to date. At no point do you think you're watching a high def movie.

This movie deserved a lot better treatment than this. I can't enjoy the blu ray because I'm constantly thinking how bad the picture looks. Disney has told me they will refund the money for this, I suggest anyone who feels like they got shortchanged buying this contact them.

Crap HD transfer June 7 2012
By M. Hafner - Published on

Avoid this turkey of a HD transfer at all costs. That was rather poor quality 8 years ago, now it's shameless to sell this. No HD detail, no proper 35mm texture, no proper colour and shadow detail. Someone should tell Marty...

New Bluray Video Butchered. June 9 2012
By H. Seldon - Published on
If you care about this film at all, run away far and fast. Somebody botched this disc so badly it almost has to be a mistake. It's an incredible shame
that a film that earned Paul Newman accolades and an Oscar, is among Scorsese's best, has an excellent performance by Tom Cruise gets this kind of treatment. Hopefully it will end up like Gladiator and Gangs of New York that somebody will acknowledge that this isn't what was approved and the real
intended Bluray will be released. Everybody knows about the John Carter debacle and how much money Disney probably will lose, but butchering a classic Live
Action film isn't the way to recoup either money or reputation. Multiple end-users and professional reviewers have been appalled at this attempt and
hopefully once Scorsese gets a copy he and his people will throw some weight behind getting this abomination fixed.

I only wish I could give this 0 stars or worse.

Horrible Blu-Ray for an awesome movie June 28 2012
By Aaron Rogers - Published on
Verified Purchase
Terrible. I love this film but the presentation on this Blu Ray is probably one of the worst I've ever seen. Colors and blacks are blah. It's grainy as all hell, and any kind of depth and texture is just gone. It's an upscale of the original first run DVD that wasn't even 16x9 to begin with. No form of restoration went into this ever. Why is it a 25th Ann. edition when they did NOTHING to celebrate it's release excep press it on a new medium with a fancy blue box?

Avoid...unless you don't want to adjust your TV Zoom settings from the original DVD.

Terrible Quality July 1 2012

Marginally better video quality than dvd which was bad to begin with. Calling this an "anniversary edition" with 0 extra features to boot is a rip off.
