Now, to be fair, I have been a fan of this movie for a very long time. I have purchased the VHS version, as well as any DVD release that has come out (hello to redundancy in special features and the sort). When I heard that this was coming to Blu-Ray, I immediately pre-ordered it. My opinions may be bias because of enjoying the movie too much, so I will try to keep it in perspective.
Video Quality: 4/5
The Princess Bride is showing its age as far as production values go, but this shouldn't sway anyone from seeing this movie. The Blu-Ray version has been wonderfully remastered in 1080P. This is most noticeable with the color palette, as all the colors are vibrant. The picture is crisp, with the original film grain still in tact. You will notice the best quality during the scenes with the Dread Pirate Roberts on his quest to find the Princess. Overall, the picture looks nice for being 22 years old, a true testament to how good Blu-Ray can make any movie look.
Audio Quality: 5/5
The soundtrack in it's TrueHD quality is great. Very clear and no signs of fuzz anywhere. The 5.1 audio track is truly 5.1 as every channel receives the correct sound and really enhances the quality of the movie experience.
As mentioned above, all the extras are on older discs. The documentary is great, and the commentary with Rob Reiner and William Goldman is interesting (if you're into that kind of thing). The Biggest extra, however, is the DVD version of the movie has been bundled with this Blu-Ray, allowing you to share the movie with anyone else. This is something that I have been waiting for Blu-Ray to do for a long time, and it's been mostly younger Disney Movies for now (Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty). HD-DVD was doing this the whole time, so it's nice to see Blu-Ray starting to do it more.
Buy this movie if you like romance. Buy this movie if you like comedy. Buy this movie if you enjoy romantic comedies. This is a must watch for anyone looking for an underrated movie for its time, but something that has withstood the test of time and has become one of the greatest romance stories ever. Take it from a guy who enjoys a good Chick Flick, I will be watching this again and again. The price is right, the quality is superb, and the experience will be remembered for all.
