Broadcast News Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Broadcast News Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, James L. Brooks' Broadcast News arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Supervised and approved by director James L. Brooks and editor Richard Marks, this new high-definition digital transfer was created on a DFT SCANITY Film Scanner in 4k resolution from the original 35mm camera negative, and color corrected on a Baselight Eight in 2K resolution. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system.

Telecine supervisors: James L. Brooks, Richard Marks, Lee Kline.
Telecine colorist: John Persichetti/Sony Colorworks, Los Angeles."

This is an excellent high-definition transfer. Fine object detail is outstanding, clarity terrific, and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. Edge-enhancement is never a serious issue of concern; neither is macroblocking. I did not see any traces of heavy noise corrections - the fine film grain is wonderfully resolved and consistent. Color reproduction is also impressive; the variety of reds, blues, greens, yellows, browns, grays, and blacks look rich, fresh, and natural (only at the end of the film - the airport scene - I noticed some very short color instability, but I it is fairly obvious that it is inherited). The various close-ups convey outstanding depth and tightness. Even the darker scenes from the studio look very strong. Finally, there are absolutely no stability issues to report in this review. I also did not see any large damage marks, cuts, warps, or stains. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Broadcast News Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Criterion have included optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The 2.0 surround soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the original 35mm Dolby A magnetic tracks. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation." The English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track is solid. It has a good range of dynamics and pleasing, natural crispness. The dialog is clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. There are no balance issues with Bill Conti's music score either. I also did not detect any disturbing pops, cracks, hissings, or dropouts to report in this review.
