Stripes Blu-ray

Posted November 14, 2011 08:08 AM by Josh Katz

Sony PicturesNext year, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will bring Stripes to Blu-ray. The sophomore collaboration between actor Bill Murray (Lost in Translation) and director Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) focuses on a slacker (Murray) who enlists in the military as a means of meeting women and finding direction - in that order.

Harold Ramis (director of Groundhog Day) co-stars as Murray's best friend, and the film also features supporting turns from John Larroquette (Southland Tales), Judge Reinhold (Beverly Hills Cop), Warren Oates (The Wild Bunch), and John Candy (Uncle Buck).

Sony's Blu-ray presents the extended cut of Stripes in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1 with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. The disc also contains the following supplements:
  • Commentary with director Ivan Reitman and writer/producer Dan Goldberg
  • Two-part retrospective documentary Stars and Stripes
Previously available as a Best Buy exclusive, Stripes expands its release schedule on January 24th, 2012.

We were going
to the Bingo parlour...



...at the YMCA.



Well, one thing led to another...



...and the instructions
got all fouled up there.



- We ended up...
- Shut up.



Okay, sir.

The extended cut sucks. Wish it was the theatrical cut coming to Blu.

Sadly, this is still the extended cut ONLY (which really hurts the pacing of the film).

No theatrical cut=no sale. This extended cut sucks! And usually Sony is so good about these things. Hell, my dvd had the theatrical cut. Why?

Sadly I have to agree with those who were unhappy with this release. I purchased it and felt the lack of adding the theatrical cut at the very least was a major letdown. The extended edition is awful, the film goes in an entirely different direction for a short time, which is unfunny and could understand why it was cut in the first place, because it was incredibly stupid. The film then gets back on track, but the extended footage is simply forgettable. This was one of the few instances where I bought the blu-ray, watched it, and quickly dumped it regretting having purchased it in the first place. Don't get me wrong, I loved Stripes, its a hilarious comedy, and John Candy steals the show as always, but what Sony should have done is made the extended edition a Best Buy exclusive and then offer everyone the theatrical edition instead, which I gladly would buy.

Thanks for the input on the extended cut guys. I'm of the "less is sometimes more" school of thought so I appreciate the info. Looks like I'll be passing on this one, which sucks because I love this movie.

Extended cut is a joke, but not a funny one. Turns the movie into an Abbott and Costello retrospective. Why the hell wouldn't they include the theatrical cut? Are they nuts? Not a chance I'd waste my money on this

The exclusion of the theatrical cut is inexcusable, but more so, the horrendous PQ! The BB edition literally looks like an upconverted DVD. When I bought it, I immediately did an A-B comparison with my DVD (glad I didn't dump it) and found only extremely marginal improvement in the BD PQ! Very disappointing and easily THE worst BD transfer in my 600+ blu-ray collection!

Glad to hear others didn't prefer the extended cut either. Played mine once and its never been in the machine since. Still waiting for the theatrical version on blu.
