Chaplin

 (1992)

Chaplin Blu-ray features mediocre video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A dramatized biography of the highs and lows in the life of one of the foremost comic geniuses the silver screen has ever known. With the use of flashback, an elderly Chaplin (Downey Jr.) discusses his autobiography with his editor (Hopkins) who urges him to be more vulnerable and emotionally honest with his memoirs. Together, they journey through Chaplin's poverty-stricken childhood, closest friendships, many marriages, and his ingenious invention of "The Little Tramp," as well as J. Edgar Hoover's merciless pursuit, Chaplin's shocking exile to Switzerland and his triumphant return to Hollywood.

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

Director: Richard Attenborough
Writers: Bryan Forbes, William Goldman, Diana Hawkins
Starring: Robert Downey, Jr., Dan Aykroyd, Geraldine Chaplin, Kevin Dunn, Anthony Hopkins, Milla Jovovich

Chaplin Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

I wish I had better news to report about Chaplin's AVC encoded 1080p image in 1.85:1. Maybe our first clue should have been the odd soubriquet "15th Anniversary Edition" this Blu-ray release is saddled with, obviously culled from the special edition DVD which came out a few years ago. The last time I checked the distance between 1992 and 2011 wasn't exactly 15 years. Unfortunately it doesn't appear that any restoration of any kind was undertaken for this release, and the worse news is that the DVD release was not exactly stellar to begin with. Once again we're offered a dirty and dingy print that suffers from some very peculiar artifacts, including an almost seizure inducing flicker (and not the old black and white, silent movie kind). But the image here is really distressingly soft, made even uglier by noticeable edge enhancement, something that usually doesn't raise my ire as much as it does some of my videophile compatriots. Contrast is poor, too dark a lot of the time, and the overall look of the film is just sort of pasty and lifeless. There are a few bright spots here, notably in some of the brightly lit close-ups, when finally something akin to hi-def sharpness and clarity pops, albeit very fitfully, into view. This sadly has the look of a not very well upconverted DVD a lot of the time, and that's really a shame.


Chaplin Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Things are at least a little better with regard to Chaplin's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix. Obviously immersion and surround activity are not an issue here, but fidelity is excellent even if everything is played out on a very narrow soundfield. Dialogue, effects and John Barry's Academy Award nominated score are all very well mixed and the soundtrack does not suffer from any age related degradation or other issues. This isn't a knock your socks off sounding soundtrack, but it delivers the goods in a reasonably sharp and well modulated way and shouldn't be as disappointing to fans of this film as the image quality probably will be.
