Billy Bathgate / Blaze Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Billy Bathgate
Score: 4.0/5.0


Billy Bathgate looks pretty great on Blu-ray. This is easily one of the best transfers yet from Mill Creek. It's a sturdy, accurate, film-like image that retains a consistently moderate layer of film grain. Details are crisp and sharp, mostly, and reveal intricate little textures on period brick and wood fašades -- particularly those that are well worn and weathered -- as well as the usual faces and clothes. The color palette is never overly dull and quite vibrant in some of the film's brightest moments, such as a race track sequence that shows off some colorful bouquets, green grasses, and sun-lit clothes. Blacks are usually solid, though in a few scenes they do show some unwanted crush and, on the other end of the spectrum, turn a shade of dark purple. Flesh tones, however, remain fairly consistent without too much of an unnaturally warm push. The print is clean and free of major wear, and there's little evidence of banding, blocky backgrounds, or edge halos. This is a very satisfying transfer from Mill Creek.

Blaze
Score: 2.5/5.0


Blaze's high definition transfer doesn't fare as well as its Mill Creek Blu-ray counterpart Billy Bathgate. It displays a myriad of problems, none of them a deal breaker at this price point but enough to leave fans wishing for a more accurate, blemish-free presentation. The wobbly opening credits are met with excess print wear. Noise sprinkles in throughout, and the image is often so harsh it seems to glow around the edges. Color balance isn't bad, but this isn't a deep, accurate, well-defined palette. Details range from satisfying to smudgy. Clumps of leaves in the opening West Virginia shots lack any sort of definition, but the image stabilizes enough at times to show decent wear on period structures and natural facial and clothing lines. The image does have a lightly smoothed over look to it as well. Blacks and flesh tones are satisfactory. This isn't the best Mill Creek transfer, but it's pretty representative of the studio's releases.


Billy Bathgate / Blaze Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Billy Bathgate
Score: 3.5/5.0


Billy Bathgate's DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtrack isn't what one might label "robust" or "immersive," but it gets the job done with little effort. There's a nice, natural front side presence to the deep, rather haunting notes heard at film's start. Clarity here and elsewhere in music and sound effects is constant, not perfect but certainly not anywhere near a level of sonic distraction. The opening boat sequence offers some very nice subtle atmospheric effects, such as creaking wood, the powering motor, and waves and wind outside. Later, a train rumbles effortlessly from one front speaker to another, and the din of typewriters, ringing telephones, and other machinery heard inside the mob offices in chapter three create a satisfying listen. Gunfire is suitably crisp as well. Dialogue plays evenly and clearly. For a two-channel track, this one's pretty good, and it serves the film well.

Blaze
Score: 3.0/5.0


Blaze doesn't completely fizzle on Blu-ray, featuring a modest but basically effective DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtrack. There is a fair amount of activity across the front, a good bit of sonic distinction and even decent clarity. Whether the light ambience of children playing and roosters crowing in the opening West Virginia moments, the sound of a feverish crowd of drunken sailors at a strip club, or rain and lingering claps of thunder in chapter 10, the soundtrack offers a surprising bit of activity, space, and faux immersion throughout. Some of those same sounds come across as a little shallow, but what little bit of muscle that's here helps the track considerably. A couple of shotgun blasts fall short of expectations, but the resultant mayhem, such as crashing glass, does play with a good bit of clarity and focus. Dialogue and music both play with commendable clarity in an otherwise scattered sort of soundtrack. This one does a bit more well than it does poorly; like the video, this is fairly representative of average Mill Creek quality.
