Yeah, let's look at some Oliver Stone trippy visuals in high-def! This 20-year-old film looks solid, but not touched up. The colors are great, but it's not going to show detail more than the original film projection.
Blu-Ray Review: The Doors
There are nice pastels, and a crisp shot of Val Kilmer against the starry sky. Meg Ryan's hair in the desert light looks stunning. Actually, Jim Morrison's mug shot is the clearest shot in the film, and it's only a second so freeze that frame.
There are a lot of clubs and dumpy apartments which don't have much to offer, but period New York in the daylight looks awesome. The Ed Sullivan stages are vibrant red. A back alley also looks a mighty red and the beer gut is nice and pasty.
Some of the more film-y effects like a dissolving montage are all clear. Basically, the Blu Ray enhances the surreal, but you won't see any real grit to it.
