42nd Street Forever

 (2005-2006)

42nd Street Forever Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Movie trailers (grindhouse, horror, kung-fu, etc...)

For more about 42nd Street Forever and the 42nd Street Forever Blu-ray release, see 42nd Street Forever Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.



42nd Street Forever Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (the majority of the trailers are in 1.78:1), encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, 42nd Street Forever arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Synapse Films.

I don't have 42nd Street Forever on DVD in my library and therefore cannot comment on the types of upgrades this Blu-ray release offers. What I could do, however, is assure you that the trailers in the collection are not upconverted replicas of the old, standard definition trailers. Clearly, they are film sourced, and the proper resolution expected from high-definition content is present. This being said, the quality fluctuates a lot - which should not be surprising as many of the trailers clearly come from second, even third generation elements (the trailer for Salo, for instance, must have originated in Germany). There are scratches, marks, frame skips, color deterioration, etc. Detail and clarity also tend to fluctuate quite a lot depending on when and how the trailer was sourced. In other words, the majority of the trailers look quire rough, but this is actually what makes this fascinating collection so appealing. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


42nd Street Forever Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Synapse Films have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature (but they are usable only on selected trailers).

Predictably, the quality varies again. Depending on the condition of the trailer, some of the narration/dialog sounds very good. Obviously, dynamic levels fluctuate, but there are no serious distortions. In fact, quite often the audio is surprisingly well rounded and free of problematic hiss. (Please note that a couple of trailers have imposed foreign-language subtitles).
