A Boy and His Dog

 (1975)

A Boy and His Dog Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A post-apocalyptic tale based on a novella by Harlan Ellison. A boy communicates telepathically with his dog as they scavenge for food and sex, and they stumble into an underground society where the old society is preserved. The daughter of one of the leaders of the community seduces and lures him below, where the citizens have become unable to reproduce because of being underground so long. They use him for impregnation purposes, and then plan to be rid of him.

For more about A Boy and His Dog and the A Boy and His Dog Blu-ray release, see A Boy and His Dog Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Don Johnson, Susanne Benton, Jason Robards, Tim McIntire (I), Helene Winston, Charles McGraw

A Boy and His Dog Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

A Boy and His Dog is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. There's mostly good news with regard to this high definition presentation, at least when put in the context of how shoddy this film has often looked on previous home video iterations. Color and contrast are markedly improved here, though while I suspect some moderate restoration has been done here, there is quite a bit of relatively minor but extant damage to the elements, which includes quite a few specks and scratches, as well as something that appears to be minimal warping of individual frames (you can see it quite clearly in the first establishing shot of the desert, where the lower half of the frame seems to "wiggle" all of a sudden). Shadow detail is really rather good, all things considered, though things are extremely grainy throughout a lot of this presentation, something that's increased rather markedly in some of the darker sequences.


A Boy and His Dog Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

A Boy and His Dog has a lossless mono audio track delivered via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. While this is quite shallow sounding, and is especially boxy with regard to Blood's voice (something that always plagued this film from its theatrical exhibition onward), there's surprising fullness to the score (done by Blood's voice artist Tim McIntire, and featuring keyboard work by none other than Ray Manzarek). Dialogue is very cleanly presented, and there is no appreciable damage to report. Fidelity is very good and dynamic range is fairly wide.
