American Pie

 (1999)

American Pie Blu-ray offers decent video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Jim is your average healthy re-blooded virgin -- he's desperate to "make it" with a woman. The stakes are raised when his parents catch him with his pants down watching porno films in his bedroom, his one experience with a beautiful exchange student turns into an online disaster and his friends make a pact that by the day of their high school graduation, none of them will be virgins. Pressure's on, but will Jim rise to the occasion?

American Pie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

American Pie's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer was, by all indications, minted from a somewhat dated master. That's not to say it looks like an upconverted DVD -- quite the contrary, fans will note the many improvements the Blu-ray presentation offers over its standard definition counterpart -- but it does suffer from a number of DVD-era issues, meaning the end result isn't as satisfying as it could be. There are times when artificial sharpening is out in force, producing unsightly (but thankfully intermittent) edge halos. Noise reduction has been utilized as well, although on more of a scene by scene basis and judiciously on the whole. The majority of shots are actually quite refined, with well-resolved facial textures, seemingly unblemished fine detail, and a veneer of unobtrusive grain; other shots, though in smaller supply, are waxy, over-processed and worse for the wear. Worse, while primaries eek by with some nice (albeit limited) punch, the image is continually undermined by lackluster contrast and a minor blue tint. Skintones often have an overcast reflecting pool quality to them, colors are sometimes skewed, and the presentation drifts into dark, murky waters. Black levels are deep, sure, but instances of dingy whites, muted reds, waterlogged greens and poorly delineated shadows put a damper on things. On a more positive note, sunnier shots boast a welcome warmth that would have benefited the rest of the film, while more glaring issues -- artifacting, banding and the like -- are largely held at bay. (Arguably negligible telecine wobble will prove to be a distraction for some, if only because it comes and goes as it pleases, drawing attention to itself each time.)

All in all, I wish I had better things to say about American Pie's transfer, and suspect I would have if Universal had started from scratch, creating a brand new master specifically for this release. But a dated, problematic master can only produce a dated, problematic presentation, and that's exactly what we get here. Many shots and scenes show potential, but the series' first film remains a bit of a Blu-ray underachiever.


American Pie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is beholden to its original sound design, which leads to a number of shortcomings all its own, chief among them rear speaker aimlessness and low-end laziness. Dialogue is clean and clear on the whole, but a few too many lines are thin or slightly muffled; prioritization is decent, but too many crowded hallways and noisy parties are flat and stagy; the soundfield features some notable directional effects, but hardly any feature the precision or finesse one hopes to hear; and LFE output is solid, but favors dutifully providing average support over creating some sense of real weight and cinematic presence. Even the film's soundtrack lacks punch, getting the job done and little more. Don't get me wrong, American Pie doesn't sound bad at all. It just doesn't have the means or the muscle to back up its lossless hopes and dreams.
