A Christmas Story

 (1983)

A Christmas Story Blu-ray features mediocre video and poor audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Set in a 1940s-era Midwestern town and told from the viewpoints of a seven-year-old boy, who only wants one thing for Christmas a Red Ryder BB gun the episodic tale chronicles not only his schemes to convince his mother and father to buy him one, but also offers a warmly nostalgic look into 1940s middle-class American life. From the stories of, and narrated by, Jean Shepherd.

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

A Christmas Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Warner Brothers' 1080p, 1.78:1 Blu-ray version of A Christmas Story does not offer top-flight Blu-ray imagery. Make no mistake; this is not necessarily a bad looking disc. A lot of it looks fairly nice, but it simply doesn't greatly exceed the 2003 2-disc DVD version, and this late 2008 Blu-ray release is identical to the previous Blu-ray. It's an improvement over the DVD, but a minor one at best. The print exhibits nicks, scratches, and pops here and there. Many indoor scenes suffer from a spotty appearance where most of the print's flaws are found. Outdoor scenes fare far better, featuring solid clarity and definition. Flesh tones are accurate and black levels are rendered adequately but not immaculately. Fine detail is generally strong; woven clothing, the trinkets and warm interior of Ralphie's house, the wooden desks and chalkboard in the classroom, and more look just fine. A Christmas Story probably looks about as good as it ever will, and the image quality should in no way be a deterrence in adding this disc to a Blu-ray library.


A Christmas Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

All that is available on this Blu-ray edition of A Christmas Story is a 1.0 Dolby Digital mono soundtrack, the same offering as found on the previous 2006 Blu-ray release. There isn't much going on here, obviously. It suffices, and quite frankly, the movie would probably not work as well with an aggressive pseudo multi-channel track. A few scenes, such as the fantasy sequences, may have offered up the opportunity for a little atmosphere, but on the whole, this mono track is just fine. Dialogue is clear and always discernible. Music and various effects also come across as well as one would expect of a classic dialogue-driven, charming cinema classic. This is an underwhelming track to be sure when compared to the latest in action movie sound design, but is one that doesn't detract from the overall movie experience. Most viewers will be so enthralled by the movie's magical appeal that they will pay little attention to what is a comparatively-speaking bland sound quality, instead immersed in Ralphie's quest to obtain that oh-so-beautiful rifle.
