Overview

The Majestic

Jim Carrey puts away his comedic talents for a dramatic role in director Frank Darabont's cinematic throwback The Majestic. Warner has done a very nice job at making sure that this 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer is clear of any defects or imperfections that might otherwise mar the image. With deep black levels and bright colors, this is easily a reference quality DVD transfer. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in both English and French-Canadian. Sporting a vast array of directional effects (especially with composer Mark Isham's lush music score), this is an excellent and crystal clear soundtrack that should please home theater owners. Also included on this disc are English and French subtitles. Fans of the film will be happy to see some extra features available on this disc, even if they are rather minimal. The meatiest of these supplements are eight deleted scenes presented in non-anamorphic widescreen. While the scenes are enjoyable to watch, overall they wouldn't have added much to the final film. Also included on this disc is the enjoyable full-length movie within a movie, "Sand Pirates of the Sahara" (featuring B-movie actor Bruce Campbell), a theatrical trailer for the film, some cast and crew lists of the principle actors and filmmakers, and some information on the Hollywood blacklist of the 1950s.

I loved this movie. Not caring much for slap-stick comedy, I have never been a Jim Carrey fan, but he won me over on this one. He was terrific - and romantic. A side I had not expected. I can't add much to the review provided but agree with all that was said. This is a movie you don't want to miss. It leaves you feeling good about life and the goodness of people.

This film would be great incorporated into a 1950s unit. It has a little bit of everything: Hollywood black lists, the restoration of an old theatre, some excellent scenes on the Constitution and Constitutional rights, fallen war heroes and the important roles they played in our freedom today, music of the period, and best of all a strong female supporting role. Oh, and no sex and very few minor vulgarities. What more could anyone want! And, although I'm not a huge Jim Carrey fan, I loved him in this movie. Definitely one to own.

I'm very picky about purchasing movies to include in home library. But this movie certainly meets the criteria. A wonderful story with a feel-good ending. Something that we as Americans could use a little more of.
