Agent 8 3/4

 (1964)

Agent 8 3/4 Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

In this satirical comedy-thriller at the height of the 007 popularity and set amidst the world of international espionage, unemployed Nicolas Whistler accepts a job and a tidy salary with what he believes to be a glass manufacturing company in London. He soon discovers that his business behind the Iron Curtain is in fact illegal. Everyone apparently believes him to be a spy but it takes much time and adventure for him to realize it. The realization numbs him with horror, and with his contacts gone, he is on his own. He must escape arrest and flee to England but the secret police are close behind him!

Agent 8 3/4 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Hot Enough for June arrives on Blu-ray with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. (It should be noted that this is the second VC-1 encode I've encountered just today, so rumors of this codec's demise are, to paraphrase Mark Twain, greatly exaggerated). VCI is a small independent label which is just starting to get its feet wet in the Blu-ray marketplace. Their releases thus far have had some authoring and DNR issues, and I'm happy to report that Hot Enough for June is easily their sharpest looking Blu-ray release so far, and it exhibits no authoring issues, at least when played on both my PS3 and LG standalone player. It does appear there has been some minor DNR applied here, but it is in no way as vigorous as on Romeo and Juliet, VCI's last release, and overall this 1964 film looks amazingly sharp and crisp, with nicely robust colors and decent if not overwhelming fine detail. The increased resolution of the Blu-ray makes some of the matte paintings more noticeable, and there are some source element issues on what I would assume was the second reel, when suddenly sharpness and color are substantially diminished for a few minutes (that same anomaly crops up very briefly much later in the film). There are also one or two warping issues, but otherwise this is a blemish free presentation and one which should delight any fans of this film. (It should be noted that this is released under a new "Rank Collection" rubric from VCI, and this is perhaps merely a licensed Blu-ray which was produced and authored by the remnants of Rank).


Agent 8 3/4 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Unfortunately there are no lossless audio offerings on this Blu-ray. Instead we're given the original mono track delivered in a Dolby Digital mix as well as a Dolby Digital 5.1 repurposing. The good news is the 5.1 repurposing isn't so egregious as to grate, though that of course means there's not much surround action, especially with regard to the rear channels. The mono track does surprisingly well for this film, as the bulk of Hot Enough for June is small dialogue scenes, more often than not with only two people. Fidelity is fine, if not mind blowing, and the film really doesn't afford any opportunity for boisterous LFE, so the lack of a low end isn't really as bothersome as it might otherwise be. Dialogue is crisp and easy to hear, and the balance between it, effects and score is just fine.
