3.0 out of 5 stars PC's Special
It is a classic for many people including myself with great music, but let's talk about the whole movie. It is extremely sexually explicit, with indecent refrences the whole way through; it is so offensive that I will not buy the video because of the PG rating. I will record it off of TBS or TNT. The same uncut version on the video on TNT, is rated TV-14 (which is still...

4.0 out of 5 stars Grease Blu-ray Image Is Big Improvement Over DVD,
This review is from: Grease [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)Firstly, I'm not going to review the film at all as most people know the film quite well and probably already own it on VHS or DVD. As far as I can tell, it's the same film as on the DVD and no cutting or editing has been done to the length of the film or scenes, etc.
However, the Blu-ray image quality is significantly clearer and improved. By comparison, the DVD looks like a it came from a VHS tape! That would be the main reason to replace your DVD with the Blu-ray. At this price, I believe it's worth it.
There are a few more bonus features on the Blu-ray as well. However, the bonus stuff that is on the DVD and the Blu-ray is edited DIFFERENTLY, so some interview footage is missing or shorter on the Blu-ray. That would only bother the fans who want it all. Personally, I prefer the Blu-ray editing of the bonus footage anyways.
Others who are more passionate and intimate with the film than I have already posted discrepancies in the audio and music - the songs have been beefed up sonically they say. They admit it sounds stronger but don't like it that the original music and mix was tampered with. That's understandable. Myself, I was able to enjoy the film without being distracted by any noticeable changes. However, there is no 2-channel stereo audio mix, so I had to listen to the film's surround mix even though I only have 2 speakers. This is the reason I deducted one star. I can only assume the mix sounds good with a proper surround set-up. Also, there was one song where a noticeable amount of reverb was added to the vocal for part of the song.
A "funny" final point. My wife has loved this film all her life. We watched the film with the subtitles on, so she could see what the real lyrics to the songs are. It was shocking how dirty the songs (and the film in general) actually are and how much got past the censors! Be warned, if you're watching it with kids (or your parents) DON'T turn on the subtitles!

This review is from: Grease: Rockin' Rydell Edition (Widescreen) [DVD] (2006) DVD (DVD)This is it. The best, bar none. It's a hoot from start to finish, and a great tribute to rock 'n' roll.

This review is from: Grease: Rockin' Rydell Edition (Widescreen) [DVD] (2006) DVD (DVD)Grease is always a fun movie to watch. Olivia and John are great in it. But it makes me sad to see Jeff Conway act in it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Grease has never looked so groovey,
This review is from: Grease: Rockin' Rydell Edition [Blu-ray] (Bilingual) (Blu-ray)I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've sat through this movie from beginning to end. I purchased it on blu-ray and it looks absolutely amazing! The picture is crystal clear and there is literally no aging on the film! It looks completely brand new for a movie shot in the 70's. The story itself is a classic and the music legendary. An absolute must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars "If you can't be an athlete, be an athletic supporter",
This review is from: Grease (VHS Tape)Many conversions from stage to film lose spontaneity, also one has to pick what songs to add and subtract. Of course because of the public sense of decency many things have to be cryptic. With all of these restrictions this film is able to rival the play.
You will notice that there is a smooth transition from story to dialog to song and back to story. The sound track from the movie is worth buying.
Summer vacation from high school is ending. Danny (John Travolta) and Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) standing on the beach must say goodbye. This is the beginning.
The play is basically of two people Danny and Sandy adjusting to each other while maintaining their respective places in high school society. We see a text book school environment which no one had but parts of the story touch on everyone's life.
Will Danny give up his gang and become a jock just to impress Sandy?
Or will Sandy say goodbye to Sandra Dee to impress Danny?
And who gets the hickey for Kinicke?
