I’m still not sure if I’m attracted to girls with short hair or not.  There were a couple of girls in college who had short hair that I liked, but it was still somewhat long compared to a standard male haircut.  However, I have a mad crush on Rachel Maddow and I can’t help it at all.  Nonetheless, there was a movie where Demi Moore, who I find mildly attractive, has very short hair and I find it reprehensible.  Now you can see just what I mean in a brand new format.

Starting this December 30th, now available on Blu-ray from Paramount Studios Home Entertainment comes the story of a murder and the love that lived on after it ought to have died.  Ghost – Blu-ray Disc is ready to lope out of your television screen and tell you a story about the lasting power of love and all that happy warm and bittersweet stuff.  Bring home this film which has great claim on being one of the most romantic films of all time.

Sam died.  He was shot in what seemed like a regular robbery, but he, as a ghost, is convinced that his murder was much more significant than that.  Now Sam wants a chance to be able to solve his own murder and to reconnect with the woman he loves, Molly.  Sam finds a psychic who is able to help him with those two goals.  The only problem is that even the psychic isn’t sure any of this is truly real.  This film includes Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg and Tony Goldwyn.

The special features included in this Blu-ray presentation are an optional audio commentary from director Jerry Zucker and writer Bruce Joel Rubin, a look into the making of this classic film, a featurette about the paranormal, a deeper look at just how to shoot a love scene, a featurette about the great romances of cinema past, a photo gallery and the original theatrical trailer in high definition.

I’ll preface all of this by saying that I certainly see how this movie is thought of as being incredibly romantic and how it’s something that lonely housewives think of on their cold nights alone.  Regardless, I did not like this movie.  I think Patrick Swayze is a tool, although I loved him in Donnie Darko, but that’s mainly because you could hate him in that film, and I also don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed anything that Whoopi Goldberg is in either.  It’s a sappy, overly dramatic story about the connections we have to people and the importance of those people.  I think it’s all the romance that really throws me off.  My personal dislike aside, it is a compelling story and a truly romantic film that anyone with a wife or hopes for one would do well to add to their movie library.  It’s even more stunning in high definition.

Even if your soul is dead, you’ll enjoy this Ghost.

This Blu-ray Disc is available at Amazon.com.
