- Must See! Rags to Riches to Rags - 70's Style- February 10, 2014
This was such a good movie that I had to double dip when it came out on Blu-Ray. Based loosely on the story of John Holmes who went from a nobody in the 70's to an adult film superstar... and then tragically downhill after overindulging in the excesses of the 80's. Mark Walhberg does an excellent job playing the main character, Dirk Diggler, and is supported by an all star cast with Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, John C Reilly, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, William H Macy, Don Cheadle, and Heather Graham. The picture quality is a definite upgrade over the DVD and the excellent soundtrack will sound totally groovy on your Hi-Fi system. Lots of nudity and adult subject matter so watch it when the kids are not home.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent High def work!- January 15, 2010
This is an excellent movie in general. It is a great character drama. Don't listen to the one who gave this Blue Ray's audio poor ratings. His system must be not working properly. I played this on my Panasonic Blue Ray player, to my Onkyo tx-nr905, to my Paradigm studio v4's with ultra cube 10 subwoofer. The Dolby True HD mix is top notch. Plenty of surround action, thundering bass. Every little nuanced sound shows exactly where it is supposed to be! If you have or have seen the dvd, just get the Blue ray, you won't be disappointed. To those who have not seen the movie. This is a great character drama with highs and lows.

- Excellent audio- December 28, 2009
I don't know what the guy is talking about, giving this movie a 3/5. I never write reviews, but his was so misinformed that I felt compelled to write one in this Blu-Rays defense. There is NOTHING wrong with this audio, it has a near perfect soundtrack with plenty of bass (and I didn't even have to upgrade to the TK-421 modification!). There must be something wrong with his speakers or receiver, because I heard every beautiful song through all 5 channels, and sub. My receiver displayed "Dolby TrueHD" and the source was 5.1 The video is even better than the audio. Don't listen to CincinnatiDan, he has no idea what he's talking about. Here are some more in-depth and professional reviews of this film. http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Boogie-Nights-Blu-ray-Review/5389/Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
