Blue Valentine

 (2010)

Blue Valentine Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Derek Cianfrance writes and directs this unflinching portrayal of a once-loving relationship in freefall. When Cindy (Michelle Williams) and David (Ryan Gosling) first met, they were passionately in love - but over their five years as a couple they have grown apart. Boredom and disenchantment come to the fore as they fumble their way through the sexless emotional vacuum of their humdrum life in rural Pennsylvania; looking helplessly back to the days when life still seemed filled with excitement and romance.

For more about Blue Valentine and the Blue Valentine Blu-ray release, see Blue Valentine Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Director: Derek Cianfrance
Writers: Derek Cianfrance, Joey Curtis, Cami Delavigne
Starring: Ryan Gosling, Michelle Williams, Faith Wladyka, John Doman, Mike Vogel, Marshall Johnson

Blue Valentine Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Blue Valentine arrives on Blu-ray with a 1080p transfer framed within the film's native 1.66:1 aspect ratio, which places small vertical black bars on either side of the 1.78:1 high-def display. As noted above, this is a tale of two different video qualities. First, the HD video image. It's decidedly sterile and flat, as seems to be the filmmaker's intention. Details are often crisp -- clothing, facial textures, even small splotches of crusty paint on Dean's clothes and hands look fantastic -- but can get lost when the image occasionally goes a bit soft. Colors appear a touch washed out in spots, but are usually accurate and steady, and they certainly never appear too warm or unnaturally vibrant. Unfortunately, the HD video segments are packed with excessive banding that quickly becomes a distracting eyesore. A touch of blocking, a hint of aliasing, and one or two jagged edges are also present. The rough and gritty super 16 film stock footage looks remarkably better. There's plenty of life to it, even if it's a bit softer and nowhere near as crisp as the general HD footage. Details, though, are as strong as the film allows. Colors favor a slightly worn, faded appearance, though seemingly by design. A hint of print damage is evident, too, but it's usually clean. The filmed scenes, subjectively speaking, look much better than their HD video segment counterparts, but of course both play a significant factor in reinforcing the tone of Blue Valentine and Blu-ray handles both very well, the major problems -- namely the banding -- seemingly inherent to the source and not a fault of the Blu-ray transfer.


Blue Valentine Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Blue Valentine features a talk-heavy but stable and accurate DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. A few good natural atmospherics at the beginning of the movie -- buzzing insects and chirping birds -- as well as the steady rumble of fast-moving cars in chapter eleven or the ringing of a telephone that echoes throughout a large structure in chapter twelve represent most of the "highlights" in terms of sonic activity that exist outside of music and dialogue. Still, the track impresses a great deal, providing a naturally spacious feel, as evidenced by the school musical performance early in the film that features students singing wide across the front half of the soundstage to nicely realistic effect, in essence placing the listener in the middle of the audience. Music is crisp and spacious and dialogue is center-focused and always perfectly balanced, from the most quiet whisper to the loudest shout. Blue Valentine isn't the sort of material that's of the go-to, rock-the-speakers reference-grade stuff, but Anchor Bay's lossless soundtrack is discretely excellent in delivering everything asked of it with ease.
