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!
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?
Anyway, "Grease" is one of my favorite movies. It's just one of those timeless gems that will never die (can't say the same for the sequel, though). Every song is a joy and the film couldn't have been casted any better. John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing; all involved give indelibly charming performances. A lot of great films came out of the 70's (The Godfather, A Clockwork Orange, Taxi Driver, Chinatown, Jaws, One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, etc., etc...) but "Grease" is still able to hold it's own after all these years. A quintessential film to add to your collection.
As far as the DVD goes, well... it's typical of Paramount to stiff us with what could have been a solid release. If you take into account that almost everyone who buys the disc already knows all the songs and dialogue by heart, the studio could have done lots of fun things with the material. Alas, we only get a songbook (which is admittedly kinda cool) and a documentary. Oh, yeah. And a theatrical trailer. How rare. *scoffs*
A half-assed effort to bring "Grease" to a great medium notwithstanding, I'd highly recommend buying this.
"Summer lovin'... had me a bla-haaast..."
