    Cleanest release of this film yet

    Beautiful BluRay transfer. Markedly better than the previously released DVD versions. Nothing really new in the extras. Pointless to comment on the merits of the film as it is inevitably either snidely derided or shamelessly fawned over. Watch it for Olivia Newton-John if no other reason. She was in her prime here. The music from this film is timeless. If you saw the film in the theater in 1980 you know where you stand on the matter.

    Major Guilty pleasure

    Pure dumb fun! Total camp mythological/fantasy musical, nonsensical plot, KILLER multi-platinum soundtrack: great songs by ELO ( I'm Alive, All Over the World), even better ones by Olivia (Magic, Suddenly, Suspended in Time),the rocking title track by ON-J and ELO, Gene Kelly on rollerskates, an animated sequence. I love this movie!!! Olivia still performs many of these songs live and they are the highlight of her show. Go see her live!

    I went to see this movie in the theater when it was released in 1980, hot off the heels of Olivia Newton John's successful acting debut in Grease. I don't think the movie did very well and was generally panned by the critics. However, it has a great soundtrack which spawned a total of five top 40 hits by Olivia, ELO, and Cliff Richard combined. The movie is very campy, but it was the eighties after all.

    A childhood favorite of mine. I saw it on the big screen a couple of times. I've owned it on VHS DVD and now Blu-ray. It is corny in some aspects. Gene Kelly and Olivia Newton-John make a perfect singing and dancing partner. ELO provided the soundtrack and did a fantastic job. Some of the roller skating stuff at the end is over the top. Otherwise highly enjoyable.

    I have owned every version of this movie...VHS...Laser Disk...DVD and now Blu-ray. This is by far the best looking and sounding version of all! Don't get me wrong, could they have done a better job...yes. But if your a fan of this movie...and lived through the 80's or want to discover the 80's. Buy this movie! You will not be disappointed.

    Olivia Newton's musical follow up to Grease. Some of the most cheesey dialogue you'll ever find. Nowhere on the same level as Grease but a lot of fun. It's nice to see that some of the classic family favorites are finally starting to see the light of day on Blu-ray.

    The cleanest release of this film to date. It does not appear to be digitally restored frame by frame but rather cleaned up to remove artifacts and enhance color. I'm very pleased with it.
