Badlands Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Badlands arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray release:

"Approved by director Terrence Malick, this new digital transfer was created in 4K resolution on a Northlight film scanner from the original 35mm camera negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, and jitter were manually removed using MTI's DRS and Pixel Farm's PFClean, while Image Systems' Phoenix was used for small dirt, grain, noise reduction, and flicker.

Transfer supervisor: Emmanuel Lubezki, Maria Palazzola.
Colorist: Brian McMahan/Technicolor, Los Angeles."

Beautifully restored in 4K, director Terrence Malick's first feature film looks gorgeous on Blu-ray. Virtually all close-ups boast tremendous detail, allowing one to see even incredibly small objects (see screencapture #3). The large panoramic shots, and especially the ones from the second half of the film, also look quite remarkable. Depth, clarity and fluidity in them are truly exceptional. Viewers who watch their films on large screens, or better yet project them, are guaranteed to be impressed by the stability and wonderful organic qualities of the new high-definition transfer - there isn't even a whiff of sharpening corrections or annoying encoding anomalies. Arguably the greatest improvements, however, are in the area of color reproduction. The 4K restoration has produced an entirely new range of remarkably natural colors - blues, greens, browns, reds, and even grays look excellent. Lastly, there are absolutely no damage marks, cuts, warps, or stains to report in this review. To sum it all up, if you enjoy strong organic presentations of classic films, I guarantee you will be enormously pleased with Criterion's Blu-ray release of Badlands. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Badlands Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

There are sequences where the lossless track surprises with excellent depth, one that one would typically associate with modern big-budget films. One such sequence is the long chase at the end of the film where the state troopers and Kit fire at each other. Elsewhere random nature sounds also make an impression with great crispness and clarity. George Aliceson Tipton's excellent soundtrack also adds to the surreal atmosphere. The dialog is consistently crisp and stable. Also, there are no pops, annoying background hiss, audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
