Blu-Ray Review: ‘M*A*S*H’ Still Resonates Nearly Four Decades Later

8 September 2009 1:35 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – I worry that young people out there raised on syndicated reruns don’t know that the beloved TV show “M*A*S*H” is actually based on not just any movie but a great comedy featuring two actors at or near their prime and directed by one of the best directors that ever lived. Perhaps a great new Blu-Ray release from Fox will correct the oversight.

Blu-Ray Rating: 5.0/5.0 “M*A*S*H” still stands as one of the best comedies of the ’70s, nearly four decades after it was released. Donald Sutherland, Elliot Gould, Tom Skerritt, Sally Kellerman, Gary Burghoff, and Robert Duvall star in the film that introduced the world to the surgeons of the 4077, a group of Army medical experts stationed in Korea during the war who look at the darkness of war with a hilarious, lunatic viewpoint.

M*A*S*H was released on Blu-Ray on September 1st, »
