Sadly, the one flaw with this Blu-ray the fact there are no extra features. Gone are the director's commentary, extra features, & music videos from the 2001 dvd. Miller Creek bought the rights to release the Blu-ray, and in recent months Mariah Carey has seen a rise in sales for her once-maligned 'Glitter' soundtrack; 17 years later & the movie itself has achieved cult status. Mariah Carey gives a solid acting performance as Billie Frank in her debut acting 'lead' performance while English actor Max Beesley plays her DJ/Producer boyfriend Julian 'Dice', who reminds me of an early career Mark Wahlberg both in appearance, and with his credible Jersey/Bostonian accent. Rapper and Mariah Carey bestie, DA Brat appears as one of Carey's best friends.
The picture quality for the Blu-ray is superb, although the sound seems slightly less impressive. The movie itself is a decent drama, and I honestly feel after seeing the four various versions of 'A Star is Born' now, 'Glitter' is unmistakenly an unofficial entry to the club. The film ends on a positive note, and either one of the two gorgeous ballads 'Reflections (Care Enough) & 'Lead The Way' could have easily been nominated for Best Original song Oscars, offering Carey her own much-deserved recognition for all her efforts. I think the soundtrack should be re-visited & I personally love this movie.
Even got a replacement blue-ray and had the same problem.
