Synopsis: 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.
Main Features: "Beetlejuice" has been my favorite Tim Burton film for some time now. And given his recent track record (no disrespect, just honest critical opinion), it has no chance anytime soon being toppled. And it's debut on UHD is breathtaking. The visuals have always been something that popped for me when I first saw it. Burton's distinct style (a darker palate than some of his other Normaltown, USA settings like "Edward Scissorhands") is on full 4K display. The movie also holds up in tone, structure and delivery. Keaton is still dynamite in the role.
Bonus Features: The saddest part of this release is the lack of juicy extras. The very, very few--three total, in fact--are on the accompanying standard Blu-ray disc. A music=only audio track, theatrical trailer, and episodes of the "Beetlejuice" cartoon series. Yeah, I know. Nice !@#$ing 4K set. Honk, honk.
Final Call: Despite the significant lack of extras, "Beetlejuice" in UHD is worth watching three times over--and then some.
