All Quiet on the Western Front

 (1930)

All Quiet on the Western Front Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In 1914, a group of German teenagers volunteer for action on the Western Front. Paul Baumer is a sensitive youth, but is persuaded to join up by a war-mongering professor advocating glory for the Fatherland. Paul and his friends are trained under Himmelstoss, a kindly postmaster turned brutal corporal, and then sent to the front lines to taste battle, blood and death.

For more about All Quiet on the Western Front and the All Quiet on the Western Front Blu-ray release, see All Quiet on the Western Front Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

All Quiet on the Western Front Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Let the Universal catalog title bashing games begin! Those who didn't like my recent review of To Kill a Mockingbird may very well be similarly outraged by this assessment, so if you're in that camp and have blood pressure problems, you may want to skip this section. (I jest, of course). All Quiet on the Western Front is presented on Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1 and the results for the most part are absolutely stunning. This film underwent significant restoration to deal with a huge number of issues, including scratches, tears and perhaps most significantly horrible flicker which was so prevalent it was almost seizure inducing. For anyone who has seen this film projected theatrically (as I have) or owned previous home video releases (as I have), the results here are nothing less than revelatory. While there are still several quite noticeable instances of damage (including a fairly long several second scratch that runs down the left side of the frame in one sequence, which I was frankly surprised they didn't remove), overall this presentation is blemish free, at least relatively speaking. But what a change in flicker and contrast! Has the film been digitally manipulated? Absolutely. But watching this film now with a stable level of light and contrast brings out all sorts of new detail and makes the viewing experience manifestly more pleasurable. There is one relatively major complaint I have with regard to the DNR and other digital tools employed here. On scenes with largely white backgrounds, the grain is somewhat "frozen" looking, adding to a slightly unreal ambience. Things are not waxy or smeared in any way, but this one element may bother even those who, like me, aren't overly concerned with judiciously utilized digital tools. While these screencaps show that digital sharpening was utilized (as it no doubt needed to be considering the age and condition of the elements), the haloing is really rather negligible when actually watching the film.

A couple of anomalies should be noted about this Universal release. First off, this is the first Universal release that I can remember, catalog or otherwise, that does not have a Main Menu. Instead the film simply starts and you must press the Pop-Up Menu to get other choices. Also, the disc I received did not load the Chapters Menu properly. Pressing Chapters did bring up a supposed Chapters submenu, but there was nothing there, i.e., no still frames of chapters to choose, simply the heading "Chapters". It is still possible to toggle through the chapters by pressing the Skip Ahead button on your remote.


All Quiet on the Western Front Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

All Quiet on the Western Front's original mono soundtrack is presented here in a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 format and if expectations are appropriately placed, few should have any major complaints about the results. This is one of the first talkies, obviously, and sound recording was in its infancy, and the technical limitations of the technology back then is quite evident throughout the track. Hiss is constant and consistent, burying some of the high end and the entire track has the boxed in, tinny sound that is so prevalent in all of these early talkies. That said, fidelity here is really rather good, taken within its proper historical context. Almost all of the outright age related damage to this track, in the form of pops, cracks and other audio "scratches," has been virtually eliminated and the track sounds like it's been reequalized with quite good results. Midrange is best here, and frankly the low end is almost nonexistent, giving the many explosions the sound more of firecrackers than of shells going off, but considering the age and primitive recording techniques utilized, this track really sounds amazingly spry.
