I just finished watching The Sound of Music, and I'm blown away by the picture quality of this Blu-ray. I want to move to Salzburg, Austria right away.

This was my first time seeing the film in its entirety. When I was in elementary school many years ago, we used to sing the songs during our Friday assemblies, and my elementary school music teacher used to talk about this movie nonstop. Watching this film at long last brought back a lot of pleasant memories of those songs.

I love Eleanor Parker (the Baroness), and this movie makes me want to track down her film noir movies, namely Detective Story and Caged. It goes without saying that Julie Andrews is a sensation, and, just as in Mary Poppins and Torn Curtain, she is a pleasure to see in high definition.

I'm building up a solid Robert Wise collection, with The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Haunting, West Side Story, and The Sound of Music on Blu-ray, and The Body Snatcher, Born to Kill, The House on Telegraph Hill, The Set-Up, and Odds Against Tomorrow on DVD. He's one of the greats.

One more thing...

The Robert Wise commentary track has long stretches where he is not talking, but these scenes feature the isolated score. It's quite magical.

I was browsing stuff on Amazon and noticed that the price on this has skyrocketed. Did Fox quietly take it out of print? I'm guessing they're planning some 50th Anniversary Edition next year.

I'd never sell mine anyway unless there's a bigger and better 50th anniversary limited edition box set, as I own the 45th Anniversary big box and love it. But yikes, they must be trying to drum up demand for a 50th Anniversary Edition next year.

Well next year IS when 4K discs are to be released ... Any and all 70mm transferred movies with the extra resolution would look astounding

I've been wondering, why did the prices for the Blu-Ray suddenly skyrocket? Is it going out of print?
Top 10 films

1): Brazil 2): Metropolis 3): Full Metal Jacket 4): Moonrise Kingdom 5): Amadeus 6): Pulp Fiction 7): JFK 8): Schindler's List 9): Gravity 10): Fargo

All I really want are free UV codes.

I've been wondering, why do people not read the four or five posts immediately above theirs? Is it because they enjoy being "that guy"?

I can't help but ask why some people don't read the posts right above theirs? Don't they realize they are being 'THAT GUY?"

Last week, I complained that most people in this forum couldn't be bothered to read the last two pages of posts.

Turns out that my assessment was too generous.

Took it for a 3rd spin this past weekend. Still one of the finest blu-rays out there.
