Disenchanted with the movie industry, Chili Palmer tries the music industry, meeting and romancing a widow of a music exec on the way.

Be Cool Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film itself is a clunker, but I have nothing bad to say about MGM's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, which is sharp and clean and richly colored. I may have spotted a few scattered white flecks, but otherwise, the print is immaculate, and it's also been kept entirely natural, with no smeary, detail-erasing DNR or halo-inducing edge enhancement. The film's grain structure is a bit chunky at times, and this itself cuts down on the amount of fine detail that could potentially be visible, but the image is strongly resolved overall and certainly much improved over the standard definition DVD. Facial features are nicely represented, clothing textures are visible in close-ups, and everything is generally tighter and more vivid. Color can look a bit too intense on occasion--prompting overly ruddy or tanned skin tones--but primaries pop nicely and there are some bold oranges and purples. Black levels are more than adequately dense and the image has a nicely dialed in sense of contrast and pop. Finally, there are no compression or encode-related concerns.


Be Cool Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Be Cool's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track gets off to a loud start with the Russian mob hit, as glass shatters from gunshots that pop off angrily in the rear channels. The film never quite reaches this level of aural intensity again, but this is still a dynamic mix for a comedy, with punchiness and clarity throughout the range. The surround speakers are only called upon occasionally for effects--like fireworks criss-crossing the soundstage during the cheesy music video at the end--but there's some appreciated ambience, from Los Angeles street sounds and cheering during a Lakers game to the clamor and applause of an Aerosmith concert. The music is where this mix really hits its stride. John Powell's score works well for the film, but the incidental music is where it's at--Kool & the Gang, Earth, Wind & Fire, Bob Dylan, and yes, even the Black Eyed Peas sound great here. Dialogue could probably stand to be a bit higher in the mix at times, but I had no problems ever understanding what was being said. The disc includes optional English SDH, Spanish, and French subtitles.
