Beetlejuice (1988) (4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Review)
Directed By: Tim Burton
STARRING: Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Michael Keaton
Rated: PG/Region O/1:85/4K (2160p)/Number of Discs 2
Available from Warner Bros.

Michael Keaton, Academy Award winner Geena Davis, Alex Baldwin and Winona Ryder star in director Tim Burton’s comic twist on supernatural horror tales–Beetlejuice. When a couple of nice, young homebody ghosts (Baldwin and Davis) try to haunt the pretentious humans who have moved into their house, they ask for help from a demonic wraith (Keaton) they cannot control in this comic fantasy that mixes the quick and the dead with a laugh and a fright.

One of the movies I remember watching the most as a kid was Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice! This was a movie that just hooked me in for a number of reasons. It could be the random dance numbers, it could be the comic ways of the cast, or it could be Michael Keaton’s classic role of Beetlejuice? Whatever it is, this is a story that tells a great tale and runs with it due to how great the cast and characters are. I also give a lot of praise to the nightmarish look of the film. We all know Tim Burton brings the good with the sets and such and this is a prime example of just that. This is a movie that has some great sets and weird looking creatures. A lot of things were ahead of its time and I’m happy everyone seems to love this movie because it’s a movie that never ever gets old. And I should know because I’ve watched it a TON of times.

The 4K from Warner Brothers here doesn’t come packed with extras but it does come with some cartoon episodes that I think were a great idea. If you can look away from the lack of features you do have what I’d call a perfect transfer of the movie that only makes a great looking movie look even better. This one has a lot of offers when it comes to visuals. You noticed it even back in the VHS days, so you can just imagine how it looks now with this major 4K upgrade. I think Tim Burton’s movies are custom made for such things as 4K and every movie of his I’ve seen in the format looks great. Beetlejuice looks amazing and it makes for a near-perfect release in general. If you haven’t seen Beetlejuice in 4K then you sure need to.
