Pretty In Pink Blu-ray Review & Giveaway

Newly remastered from a 4K transfer supervised by Deutch, the Pretty In Pink Blu-ray includes a new Filmmaker Focus with the director and, for the first time, the film’s isolated score track from composer Michael Gore. Also included is the previously released featurette “THE LOST DANCE: The Original Ending.”
 
Teen sensations Molly Ringwald (Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club) and Andrew McCarthy (St. Elmo’s Fire) drew rave reviews for their starring performances in this timeless love story. Andie (Ringwald) is a high school girl from the other side of town. Blane (McCarthy) is the wealthy heartthrob who asks her to the prom. But as fast as their romance builds, it’s threatened by the painful reality of peer pressure. The film also stars Jon Cryer, James Spader, Harry Dean Stanton, and Annie Potts and features a phenomenal new wave soundtrack, including the title track by the Psychedelic Furs.


MY REVIEW

"I just wanna let them know that they didn't break me." -Andie  


One of my favorite quotes from the movie, Pretty in Pink. It's been 34 years since we first met Andie, Duckie and Blane on the big screen. Although technically I was a toddler 34 years ago, this movie is definitely a classic and part of my childhood. So when we got the opportunity to review the movie that's now available on blu-ray, I couldn't resist. 


I remember watching this at least a couple of times a year when I was growing up and every single time I was Team Blane. I guess that was the teen hopeless romantic in me because now as an adult rewatching the movie, I'd 100% be Team Duckie. He was the guy who was always there for Andie and always had her back whether she knew it or not. His style was unique and his dance moves were smooth and let's not forget his iconic lip sync performance of Try A Little Tenderness by Otis Redding. A classic and unforgettable scene that made me love Duckie even more. 


Rewatching the movie after not seeing it in years just put a smile on my face and I even got my 15 year old interested in the movie. With the movie now available on blu-ray, the picture is more crisp and clear and the blu-ray also features the original trailer as well as the original ending of the movie that includes The Lost Dance.
