Jimmy Smith (Eminem) is a young white rapper who wishes to become famous with his music. He’s saving his money to get a demo recorded and meanwhile he’s taking on small jobs here and here. His friend Future presents a weekly rap contest and wants Jimmy to participate but when Jimmy finally comes on stage, he freezes up and can’t say a word anymore, thus loosing his face. When things at home are getting worse with her mother getting evicted from her trailer, time is getting urgent for Jimmy to get the demo recorded and a music contract in his pocket.
Sound and Vision:
Where the DVD contained still some compression errors, they’re completely absent here. The image as such is excellent and there’s nothing to complain about.
Like with the image, also the sound got an upgrade and this time we get a DTS-HD track that perfectly suits the music-nature of the movie. Excellent!

A bit disappointing to see that not all DVD features got taken over
8 Mile is a terrific movie with an extraordinary Kim Basinger who plays Eminem’s mom with such dedication that you would think she’s some low life white trash while Eminem hmiself prooves he’s quite good at acting. This Blu-ray comes with enhanced image and sound quality but the extras department got slashed a bit as not all features from the DVD have been taken over to this release. A strange choice to be honest.
