Beer League

 (2006)

Beer League Blu-ray offers decent video and bad audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Beer, broads and baseball combine with hilarious results in Artie Lange's Beer League...an over-the-top comedy about a group of misfits whose weekly softball games seem to have a lot more to do with getting into fights for macho dominance than hitting home runs. Artie is an unemployed and unmotivated drunk that is predictably still living with his mother. He is on a losing softball team, and he and his teammates are facing the end of softball as they know it if they can't pull it together. When love enters his life, it unexpectedly alters Artie's low self- esteem, and the odds for winning, not only the league trophy, but a new life, are certainly looking up. He and his teammates will have to go for the win, and survive all the comedy and chaos along the way.

For more about Beer League and the Beer League Blu-ray release, see Beer League Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Beer League Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the MPEG-2 codec (at a bitrate that varies wildly between 8 to 25Mbps), Beer League won't win any awards for cinematography, but still appears decent for a low-budget title. Detail consistently maintains a level of proficiency that's neither distinct nor hazy. If anything, the transfer demonstrates a lack of smooth textures, resulting in a highly digital look that easily bests a DVD, but fails to meet the standard set by any newer Blu-ray release. Along the same lines, the color spectrum is a little underwhelming, venturing ever so slightly into drab territory and robbing the visuals of the bright tones the production should possess. Black levels aren't inky deep, but they get the job done and contrast is largely consistent regardless of whether we're witnessing an interior or exterior shot. It may sound like I'm being fairly harsh in my critique of the video quality on this release, but for a studio well known for cheap titles, Beer League stands a one of the better transfers delivered by Echo Bridge Entertainment.


Beer League Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  1.5 of 5

Unfortunately, my assessment of the audio is where this review takes a turn for the worst. Beginning with the primary audio option (Dolby Digital 5.1), I found myself turning the volume up to levels I've never reached on my receiver, hoping I'd realize at least marginal improvement in the dismal track. Even after the significant increase, I still never managed to generate an audio experience that remotely utilizes the rear soundstage of my home theater and was left with a general impression that the audio was a bit muffled or indistinct. Considering this is a comedy with rare opportunities for unique sound engineering that could encompass the entire sound field of my home theater, I opted for the Linear PCM 2.0 track. WARNING: Do not make the same mistake I did and switch to PCM after adjusting the volume to a higher level on the Dolby Digital 5.1 track. It's not loud enough to worry about blowing your speakers, but you might run the risk of waking a neighbor or two. After settling in on the PCM track, I was much happier with the clarity and volume balance of the front-heavy audio, though it was slightly disappointing to be forced to give up the ability to watch the film in surround sound.
