Bull Durham

 (1988)

Bull Durham Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Baseball season gets off to a rocky start when the Durham Bulls' new catcher, "Crash" Davis, punches out the cocky young pitcher, "Nuke" LaLoosh, he's just been hired to train. Then sexy Annie Savoy informs both men that each season she chooses one player to share her bed - and Nuke and Crash are this year's "draft picks." After Crash passes on the offer, Nuke eagerly enlists as Annie's summer fling… until Crash jealously takes over and convinces Nuke that sex with Annie will jinx the Bulls' newfound winning streak!

For more about Bull Durham and the Bull Durham Blu-ray release, see Bull Durham Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Bull Durham Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

MGM must've had this 1080p transfer in the bullpen for a long time, as it features the now-antiquated MPEG-2 encode that graced—some might say disgraced—many of Blu-ray's earliest releases. And like most of those out-of-the-gate titles, this one looks like it could use some improvements. While the image is appreciably high definition, there's really not much fine detail to be found here. There are fleeting moments of sharp texture, but generally the picture is soft and somewhat gauzy, and I wouldn't hesitate to call several shots outright blurry and indistinct. This can't all be attributed to the transfer—I'm sure the source print isn't the sharpest—but if you're on the fence about upgrading from the DVD edition, it's something to consider, as the leap in quality isn't as great here as it is in some other titles from the mid 1980s. Black levels are somewhat hazy, and during many of the darker scenes, you'll notice strong chroma noise peppering the image, along with heightened amounts of grain. Color is gentle and natural, however, with no artificial boosting, and skin tones seem right on. Aside from the noise, there are no overt compression problems, and both DNR and edge enhancement are nowhere in sight. As it stands, Bull Durham's Blu-ray transfer is acceptable, but if it were placed on a dual-layer disc and given a more up to date AVC or VC-1 encode, I'm sure the film could look at least marginally better.


Bull Durham Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There's less to say about the film's standard issue DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which carries the film's dialogue and score capably but doesn't offer much in the way of immersion or intricate sound design. And that's okay. Not every film has to blow the roof off and rattle the walls with booming LFE response and whippet-fast cross-channel sound effects. This is a noticeably front-heavy affair, with little besides music and extremely quiet ambience bled into the rear channels. You really have to crane your ears toward the surround speakers and intentionally listen to hear anything. Still, the audio that emerges from the front row is more than adequate. There's no LFE response to speak of, and not much cause for an extra-broad dynamic range, but the effects are crisp and the music has plenty of presence and clarity. There are a few instances when dialogue doesn't sound as clear as it possibly could, but it's nicely balanced in the mix and I didn't need to fiddle at all with my remote once I set my receiver to my usual listening level. English, Spanish, Korean, and Cantonese subtitles are available in easy-to-read lettering.
