Chicago - Diamond Edition
A brand new release of one of the best musicals of the last few decades, "Chicago: Diamond Edition" is a great purchase for those that don't already have it on Blu-ray. For the casual viewer, it might not be necessary to double-dip. While this release is getting some attention for its "Dolby Vision" remastering, you actually need a player that can play Dolby Vision to get the benefits, so don't expect to be overly wowed by picture and sound quality. That said, the picture and newly remastered sound are an improvement from the original release, but negligible for those that aren't so particular. (Some of the darker scenes still appear grainy which is a result of the way it was originally filmed, not so much the transfer quality.) But for fans, the movie is so spectacular, if you don't already have it on Blu-ray, you should pick this version up - especially at such an inexpensive price! Starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellweger, and Richard Gere, the Rob Marshall directed smash is a fun, zippy, and pointedly topical treat that is one of the best stage to film adaptations to date.
The Special Features are slim but good with the best being a brand-new documentary.
