8 Mile

 (2002)

8 Mile Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

No matter who we are, no matter where we live, we're all bound by borders. Many of us are content to live within these borders--others are simply forced to exist within them. But some of us need to break out, burst through, even if what is on the other side is both frightening and unknown. From this comes the tale of one young man's dilemma as he navigates his way through his colliding worlds. Set against Detroit's hip-hop scene in 1995, Jimmy Smith Jr., a young white rapper, struggles to find his voice. The people of Detroit know 8 Mile Road as the city's perimeter. It is also a psychological dividing line between urban and suburban, between black and white, between where Jimmy is and where he wants to be. Here, survival is key, and for many, the emotional life preserver is hip hop. In the absence of nurturing parents, Jimmy and his friends--cool and charasmatic Future, optimistic dreamer Sol, aspiring activist DJ Iz and slow but steady Cheddar Bob--have created their own family. Jimmy and his "crew" (Three One Third), live on hopes of getting their "big break" while struggling to eke out a living at their dead end day jobs. At night, they feed their dreams in the hip hop clubs where the city's best rappers battle each other with abusive rhymes that are wielded like weapons. Here, words are meant to wound and victory belongs to the quick-witted.

8 Mile Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

8 Mile sports an intentionally grainy and gritty image, and this Blu-ray's VC-1 encode, in 1080p and 2.36:1, mimics that look perfectly. A lot of this film is filled with a kind of odd green fluorescent light ambience, and that ghostly pallor gives things a suitably nightmarish sheen a lot of the time. Grain is certainly more than evident, especially in these green-lit and otherwise dark segments, but it's all very natural looking and never devolves into noise levels. This is inarguably a major upgrade from the SD-DVD release, with excellent sharpness and fine detail, and really appealing contrast and exceptional black levels. There are occasionally very minor shimmer issues, typically on hair, but they're few and far between and very transitory. Overall, this is a great looking Blu-ray with a sharp and very well defined image.


8 Mile Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

8 Mile is presented with a nice lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that really only exploits the potential of surround lossless sound in its excellent musical sequences. Thumping bass lines and drum loops fill the low end with a generous amount of "oomph," and fidelity across all frequencies is exceptional. The rest of this film is really rather quiet, with low key dialogue segments filling the bulk of the running time. That means not a whale of a lot of surround activity, but still a fine and very nicely realized track, with clarity and precision. Some of the club scenes finally erupt with a nicely robust amount of surround usage, even without the nonstop underscore. This is a well mixed and nicely detailed track, though it really doesn't contain any knock your socks off immersion.
