Born on the Fourth of July Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The VC-1 encoded image (2.35:1 aspect ratio) presentation creates an inviting viewing experience for this lushly shot picture, with solid, expressive colors making an immediate impression, working to separate the eras depicted with extraordinary reds and blues, while atmospheric changes bring washes of orange without losing the integrity of the cinematography (offered cleanly here, without debris). Fine detail is strong, with facial inspection bringing out the lines of aging and considerable expressions of worry, while costuming is easily surveyed, strengthening the visual divide between Ron and the world around him. The Mexico sequence is especially rich with sweaty bodies and vile close-ups, while the movie's graphic war zone visitations display necessary make-up nuances to help appreciate the dire situations. Grain is retained with a subtle feel, bringing a needed cinematic look to the image. Ringing is rarely detected. Shadow detail is comfortable, with a few evening sequences losing a little sense of depth, while dense hair and Vietnam/neighborhood distances are preserved.


Born on the Fourth of July Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The 5.1 DTS-HD MA audio track is gifted a tremendous asset in Williams's score, which sounds heavenly here, supplying the feature with an orchestral lift that's necessary to forcefully comprehend the sweeping changes in Ron's life. The music has power and fullness, elegantly supporting additional audio elements. Soundtrack selections also carry good instrumentation and respectful placement. Dialogue is handed a solid frontal position, with richly emotional tones and confrontational sharpness, also processing Stone's use of chaos well, with clusters of voices carrying subtle reactions and lines. Verbal shrillness isn't felt. Surrounds are useful, capturing the community feel with verbal expanse and a nice handle on echo. War scenes also bring out a hefty circular feel, offering swooping directional activity for helicopters and bullets, while low-end remains engaged with explosions and heavy armament.
