I remember my Mom used to watch The Color Purple, probably a couple of times a month. It was one of her favorite films and over time became one of my favorites as well. I had never seen a movie like it at the time and as I grew older I appreciated it more and more. There was Danny Glovers excellent and somewhat out of character performance, lets be honest most of us only knew him as Mel Gibson’s reluctant partner Murtaugh from Lethal Weapon, there was the fantastic music, and of course the amazing story. I owned this movie on VHS, DVD, and now that its here on Blu-Ray I have you tell you I was ecstatic. Unfortunately it was a short lived excitement.
