CBGB

 (2013)

CBGB Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

The story of Hilly Kristal's New York club from its creation as an unlikely venue for Country, Bluegrass and Blues (CBGB) to what it ultimately became: a haven for new bands and a landmark in the history of punk, alternative rock and underground music.

For more about CBGB and the CBGB Blu-ray release, see CBGB Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Alan Rickman, Malin Akerman, Freddy Rodriguez, Stana Katic, Richard de Klerk, Rupert Grint
Director: Randall Miller

CBGB Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

CBGB was shot by director Miller's long-time cinematographer, Mike Ozier. Specific information about the shooting format wasn't available, but the movie has a distinctly digital look, and not in a good way. I am not the first reviewer to observe inconsistency in CBGB's appearance, often varying from shot to shot, between a digitally grainy look that may be an attempt to suggest the grungy past and a clean, sharp style that would be suitable for any of today's high-end TV shows. Listening to the commentary, I got the distinct impression that the variance depended on where the shots were acquired, with the grainier ones originating in New York and the rest in Georgia, as if a decision was made to change shooting styles between the two locations. If so, even post-production on a digital intermediate couldn't eliminate the difference.

XLrator's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray was presumably sourced from digital files and, to that extent, should be deemed an accurate representation of Miller's and Ozier's intended look. Except for the aforementioned grainy shots, the image is generally clean, sharp, detailed and colorful. The average bitrate of 20.97 Mbps is somewhat on the low side, but since there doesn't appear to be any film grain to compress, and the digitally grainy shots are relatively few, no artifacts seem to have resulted. Overall, the Blu-ray image is more than acceptable. It just needs a much better movie to represent.


CBGB Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

CBGB's DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack is perfectly adequate, reproducing the dialogue with clarity and the sounds of Hilly Kristal's bar, both crowded and empty, with enough detail to be convincing, if not particularly overwhelming. A truly adventurous sound mix would plunge the viewer, at least occasionally, into the middle of the crowded club when a band was playing at full volume so that, at least for a brief time, one might feel the claustrophobic excitement of a live performance, but the makers of CBGB harbor no such ambition. The film has no original score, but relies on songs by Blondie, Talking Heads, Television, The Dead Boys, The Ramones and many more, both in "live" performance and as background.
