Boogie Nights

 (1997)

Boogie Nights Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Idealistic producer Jack Horner has always dreamed of elevating his films into an art form. When he discovers young actor Eddie Adams, Jack begins to turn his dreams into reality. Under the stage name of Dirk Diggler, Eddie soon gives the adult entertainment world a star the likes of which it has never seen. But the rise to fame has its costs, and soon Dirk finds himself sliding down the slippery slope of sex, drugs and violence. The only question: can he get himself back together before it's too late?

For more about Boogie Nights and the Boogie Nights Blu-ray release, see Boogie Nights Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, Rico Bueno, John C. Reilly, Nicole Ari Parker
Director: Paul Thomas Anderson

Boogie Nights Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Picture quality fetishists should have no trouble getting it up, so to speak, for Boogie Nights' exceptionally sexy 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer. If you've seen the film before, you'll know that it's soaked with SoCal sunshine and bold 1970s colors, and when compared to the film's DVD release, everything here looks deeper, tighter, and more vivid. See the blue, green, and pink lights inside the Hot Traxx nightclub, Dirk's burgundy leisure suit, and the intensely red blood hemorrhaging from the nose of an underage coke whore. Examine the poolside party scene, which is extremely bright but never washed out, still sporting strong aquamarines and expertly reproducing the multi-hued bathing suits on display. Aside from a few darker shots that look just slightly grayish, black levels are as inky as they could be without the danger of crushed shadow detail, and contrast is right on the money. Some of the scenes—like the hot tub sequence—are remarkably dimensional and lifelike. Basically, everything looks exactly as it should, and I'd be surprised if this transfer didn't meet P.T. Anderson's exacting specifications. Of course, there's a lot of handheld camerawork in the film—scattered in amongst Anderson's long, sweeping, highly orchestrated dolly movements—so the focus isn't always precise, but this really lends to the beauty and feeling of the film. In general, though, Boogie Nights boasts an impressive sense of clarity on Blu-ray, with lots of fine texture apparent in faces and newfound detail in the wacky 1970s costumes. Grain levels fluctuate—there are times when grain is superfine, almost conspicuously absent even, and others when it buzzes and pulses onscreen—but there are no distractions here and I saw no evidence of any detail-obliterating smearing or waxiness. One final thought, which I feel almost obligated to mention: In high definition, the "prosthesis" we glimpse briefly at the end of the film, for good or ill, looks much more fake than it ever did in 480p. Just sayin'.


Boogie Nights Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

"This is hi-fi, okay? High fidelity. You know what that means? That means this is the highest quality fidelity. Hi-fi. Two very important things in a stereo system...I have this very unit in my home, but I got it modified with the TK-421, which kicks it up another three or four quads per channel. But that's just technical talk, that doesn't concern you."

Don't worry, you won't have to modify your home theater system with the TK-421 to experience everything that Boogie Nights' Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track has to offer (though it might be helpful to have a system capable of handling the tight bass this track puts out). While not as immediately appreciable as the film's stunning high definition upgrade in picture quality, this audio track handles everything that director P.T. Anderson throws its way with clarity, presence, and oomph. And what does he throw, exactly, you ask? Basically, non-stop top-40 fastballs from the 1960s and 70s, like Three Dog Nights' "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)" and The Beach Boys' "God Only Knows," plus a few curveballs like the orgasmic squealing of The Chakachas' "Jungle Fever." And let's not forget Dirk Diggler's fist-pumping anthem, "The Touch." There's rarely a moment when there isn't a song playing, and the music sounds impressively full- bodied and detailed, with an especially potent low-end. The sound effects are equally crisp—hear sausage frying and coffee pouring, the clinking of ice falling into a whisky glass and the brisk snort of a coke line—and dialogue is easily understood throughout, except in scenes, like the opening in the club, when it's intentionally hard to hear. The track is nicely balanced throughout, but it is somewhat front-heavy. You'll hear the music panned into the rears, some occasional ambience, and a few sound effects, like the bubbling of water in the swimming pool, but there are stretches when the surround channels fall into silence. Also, my ears perked up at a slight but noticeable hiss that runs for a few minutes during the first third of the film. Not sure what the cause of this could be, but it was brief, at least, and not too distracting. Overall, though, this track is white-hot and red-blooded.

Do note that there's an error on the back of the case, which claims the disc also includes Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes in English, German, Latin Spanish, and Castilian Spanish. The only audio options available on the disc, however, are the English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 mix and the two commentary tracks.
