One might wonder how that bit of bottle age will affect a film that was enjoyable at the time of release.
Martha Coolidge’s Valley Girl, at 35, brings us back to that era in Hollywood and The Valley, acts as a time capsule, and as a film, still works its charm.
Shout Factory’s new Blu-ray helps that effort, as it’s based upon a new image harvest, and filled with bright, lush colors, and a smooth patina of grain. Occasional sparkle adds a film-like appearance.
The original stereo mix is now offered in DTS-HD MA 5.1, and works to bring the sweet, semi-innocent film back to life.
As a Shout Factory Select edition, fans will appreciate some nice featurettes and other materials, both old and new.
