I just bought Shout! Factory's 30th Anniversary (2019) version Blu-ray of this 1989 movie, WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, from Amazon. This is a double-dip for me, as I already own the earlier MGM Blu-ray version, as well as the DVD before that.
Shout! Factory seems to ruin a lot of products, such as the Season 7 DVD set of ALL IN THE FAMILY, where they mastered every episode with out-of-sync audio and video, due to poor, film-like video in general because they evidently transferred these episodes to film in their remastering process, though the show was shot and aired in VIDEO-- never film. They refused to correct that DVD season set when approached about it. This is one terrible company-- they often do very little right, though they issue at least some good products.
Their 30th Anniv. version Blu-ray of WHEN HARRY MET SALLY is a good product. It is 1:35.32 in running time, vs. the 1-second briefer, earlier Blu-ray release from MGM at 1:35.31.
The remastered picture quality in the newer Shout Factory version is a definite upgrade from the earlier Blu-ray from the original studio; this one is VERY sharp and pretty. However, the earlier version is sharp and pretty enough-- it has a very solid Blu-ray picture, if not quite as amazing in picture quality as this newer one. It appears that ALL of the extras (incl. a couple of good documentaries about the making of the movie) were ported over from the MGM version, and on this 30th Anniv. version, they added a 2019 conversation between Rob Reiner and Billy Crystal of over 40 minutes, which was very informative. Crystal was great, Reiner less so because he has clearly aged plenty and sounds like an old man who is chatty and silly, and that grates after a while, but it's definitely worthwhile to see. It would have been a lot better feature had they put on English subtitles for those of us who enjoy catching every word said, but they didn't.
That brings me to the one big failing of this Blu-ray-- the English subtitles in the movie itself, which are poorly done and seemingly were done by someone who doesn't speak English as a first language. Repeatedly, the word "supposed" (as in "supposed to") was spelled "suppose." The possessive "whose" was spelled "who's," and there are plenty of other misspellings; also, the subtitles are FAR from word-for-word or accurate enough. That is especially egregious since this movie is ALL about the dialogue-- not the action (at all), not plot twists-- but purely about the dialogue. I really think it's inexcusable; not only the work that was done by a clearly unqualified person in making the subtitles, but by whoever approved of that person's work at Shout Factory. They could have just, in some fashion or another, ported over or copied the subtitles from the earlier MGM version, if they were too lazy to do it the right way, which would have been to listen to the dialogue and then type EXACTLY what was said.
Otherwise, this is a very good Blu-ray, and I would have given it four stars, not five, so as to acknowledge the poorly done English subtitles, which are very important to many of us (especially for this movie), but that job was really SO bad, unacceptable, and frankly embarrassing to Shout Factory, that I give this Blu-ray release only three stars.
By the way, I've read several reviews here where it is said that the famous restaurant orgasm scene of Sally's was deleted, and also that another, different scene with Harry was deleted. But I can assure you that both of those scenes are in the Shout Factory Blu-ray release (just as they are in the MGM Blu-ray release and in the DVD); as I viewed them myself. In fact, initially, having read those reviews, I was looking for the restaurant orgasm scene and didn't find it early in the movie, during the opening cross-country drive, when they stopped at a diner, and my thought was that that is where the scene was supposed to be, but unfortunately perhaps not in this release. However, it is actually much later in the movie, at about the 46-minute mark, when they are in a New York deli, and indeed it occurs, with a whole bunch of New Yorkers staring at Meg Ryan during her solo, which is capped off by Estelle Reiner saying her famous line. There is not one second of the original version of this movie that is missing from this Shout Factory 30th Anniversary Blu-ray release.
If you have the earlier, MGM Blu-ray release, and are not an absolute perfectionist always seeking better picture quality (as I often am), that one's a beauty in terms of picture quality, and it has tons of extras with the exception of the 30th Anniversary conversation between Rob Reiner and Billy Crystal. If this new feature might be important to you because you're a huge fan of this film, then get the 30th Anniversary release; otherwise, the earlier MGM Blu-ray release is just terrific in picture quality itself, and I don't know that the subsequent picture quality improvement makes it necessary to double-dip by also getting the 30th Anniv. Blu-ray, because the earlier MGM version Blu-ray looks so beautiful itself.
