086. Bonus – Beetlejuice

Betelgeuse the sarcastic, perverse and wicked ghost is under review this time around on an extra show! Michael Keaton knocks it out of the park, depicted as this rather rude and crude spirit. Both hosts agree that Catherine O’Hara is supremely underrated as an actress and performs at the top of the charts on her portrayal of Della. We also have pleasing acting chops by; Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, and Winona Ryder.

A triple-threat thanks goes out to Tony Smith for requesting three movies from the 80’s for us to cover. This film concludes the trifecta where he was super interested if the 4K Blu-ray is worth the extra dough to upgrade over his DVD or regular Blu-ray Disc. We answer his call by first diving into the summary of Beetlejuice and whether it holds up to scrutiny over 30 years later. On the second half of the show we talk in detail about the 4K Disc visual qualities, contrast, grain, vibrancy and the effects in the new digital conversion. On the sound front this release receives a Dolby Atmos treatment, but is it worth it? Finally we let you know what Special Features are included. Hear all about the nitty-gritty stuff by tuning in now!
