An exploration of human survival and the ability of fate to alter even the tidiest of lives with one major event, Cast Away tells the story of Chuck Noland (Tom Hanks), a Federal Express engineer who devotes most of his life to his troubleshooting job. His girlfriend Kelly (Helen Hunt) is often neglected by his dedication to work, and his compulsive personality suggests a conflicted man. But on Christmas Eve, Chuck proposes marriage to Kelly right before embarking on a large assignment. On the assignment, a plane crash strands Chuck on a remote island, and his fast-paced life is slowed to a crawl, as he is miles removed from any human contact. Finding solace only in a volleyball that he befriends, Chuck must now learn to endure the emotional and physical stress of his new life, unsure of when he may return to the civilization he knew before. Cast Away reunites star Hanks with director Robert Zemeckis, their first film together since 1994's Oscar-winning Forrest Gump. ~ Jason Clark, Rovi
So many of Hanks' movies are "the new classics" it kind of make you think maybe he's a fantastic actor or something! The movie itself gets five of five stars.
The blu-ray transfer looks fantastic - just beautiful. And the audio is top-notch.
The extras are a little disappointing. There is a commentary with Robert Zemeckis and a number of the crew (mostly the sound design and special effects people). Very interesting commentary. But that's pretty much all there is.
There is a "trivia track" subtitle, but the trivia is pretty lame. Either already covered in the commentary or is stuff from outside the movie like "Tom Hanks won back-to-back Oscars for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump." Nice, but not really movie specific.
And that's it for the blu-ray extras! Well, the DVD extras were about the same.
Who cares? Just enjoy the movie again. :)
