Moulin Rouge! Blu-ray

Just rewatched Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! after years, and still love it. I don’t want to review it properly, so just a couple of short thoughts after seeing it.

It looks absolutely stunning on blu-ray, as you would expected, given all the glitz and the glamour and all that red in the film. The blu-ray has quite a lot of extras on it, which I will get round to watching at some point… 

It always gets compared to Chicago, since they’re both musicals, and that came out a year after this, but I think Moulin Rouge is definitely better. I also think if the Academy were going to give the Best Picture Oscar to a musical, Moulin Rouge deserved it more. (I know they were different years, so technically not up against each other)
