ADDITION: Scorpion Releasing Blu-ray (March 2020): Scorpion Releasing have transferred Richard Donner's down-and-out 1980's 'feel good' film Inside Moves to Blu-ray. It is said to be from a "NEW 2019 HD Master". The HD image is consistently thick indicative of some of the 80's stock we've seen in the past making it to 1080P. It has no gloss and little depth, but as far as a realistic representation of the film - I don't doubt this dual-layered transfer does a competent job. This film never really looked dynamic - and wasn't meant to. The heavy texture is totally engratiating. I enjoyed the clean presentation.

On their Blu-ray, Scorpion Releasing use a DTS-HD Master 2.0 channel track (24-bit) in the original English language. It is a little scattered but consistent adding to the vérité feel and has a supportive score by the iconic John Barry (The Whisperers, Boom, Deadfall, The ChaseMidnight CowboyDances With Wolves and the Bond themes among his many credits)  sounding buoyant and pleasing with positive, uplifting vibes. Scorpion Releasing offer optional English subtitles (see sample below) on their Region 'A'-locked Blu-ray.

The Scorpion Blu-ray includes a new 19-minute interview with Director Richard Donner who declares it one of his favorite films. Great to hear him reminisce about the project. There is also a new 1/4 hour video on-camera interview with John Savage who is always frank and authentic discussing his career and others involved in this production. Lastly, is a theatrical trailer.

Inside Moves is fantastic. Richard Donner's 'positive' film has its own edginess that propels it to effectiveness. Savage is always great - a perfect role - who doesn't like David Morse and how about the few cameos of Harold Russell (The Best Years of Our Lives). I loved seeing this again - it has such a good balance - never being cloying or too melodramatic. Just the lives of a loyal group of friends - each with their own failings.  It's a film I am very happy to own on Blu-ray with the new interviews. An easy recommendation!
