Cadillac Records

 (2008)

Cadillac Records Blu-ray offers decent video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

In this tale of sex, violence, race and rock and roll in 1950's Chicago, 'Cadillac Records' follows the exciting but turbulent lives of some of America's musical legends, including Muddy Waters, Leonard Chess, Little Walter and Howlin' Wolf, Etta James and Chuck Berry.

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

Cadillac Records Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Without careful analysis, the picture quality at first seems excellent, with good definition, warmth and deep blacks. But from a videophile perspective, the Blu-ray picture is not perfect. Signs of digital processing include flatness and perhaps some grain reduction for a very polite presentation that lacks lifelike vividness. Detail and depth are held back compared to reference quality Blu-ray discs. The night scenes are the prime examples when minimal shadow detail and relatively 2-D presentation tend to get in the way. Watch the scene when Chess comes to the rescue of James who has overdosed. The characters seem to stand out artificially in front of a black backdrop with almost no grayscale gradients that cue the viewer in to depth. Granted, part of this is attributable to the way Cadillac Records is shot and produced and cannot be blamed on the transfer and processing. For the most part, skin color is good, clothing appears to have defined texture and landscapes are detailed and bright.

An interesting element of the picture quality of Cadillac Records is its very modern, vibrant color scheme which did not lend itself to a period piece of the 1950s. One would have thought any digital postproduction should dirty up the picture or make the colors a bit more subdued. But digital processing seems to have been used for exactly the opposite: to make the picture aseptic and pump up the brightness and contrast a touch. The overall effect isn't bad; it's just not reminiscent of film--especially not film from half a century ago.


Cadillac Records Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Like the video, the Dolby TrueHD 5.1 track appears to have been subject to noise reduction or some other digital processing. It sounds polite, with modern dynamics that lack the bite and grit of good recordings from the '50s. The Chess sound was dirty and dark, with a forward presentation, but the sound of Cadillac Records is marked by rolled off highs and an ever-so-slight digital sheen. It has a more laid-back presentation. The mix is very light on bass and surrounds, anchoring all the sound up front for a nearly monaural soundstage. Acoustic guitars have an aseptic feel, with none of the lively resonances that mark great recordings. The distorted electric guitar, often played with the slide blues style, is also subdued with much of the bite taken out of it. The audio of Cadillac Records makes for a polite guitar, which is not something I'd ever expect to say about music associated with Chess Records. To put it in perspective, these quibbles are for audiophiles to debate and the average movie fan will appreciate the clean sound. Dialog is crisp and appears well recorded, although the same type of processing has been applied.
