Charade Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Note: Screenshots 1-20 are from this new Universal release. Screenshots 21-25 are from the previously released Criterion Blu-ray. I have tried to replicate as closely as possible the frames for these five comparison shots, but they're not 100% duplicated.

Charade is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal Studios with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. For Universal bashers who are (in best Universal Studios tradition) already at the ready with their torches and pitchforks, there's actually pretty good news here. This release has not been scrubbed to within an inch of its life and grain is quite noticeable throughout this offering. That said, after having compared the Universal release to the Criterion, my personal opinion is that the Criterion offers a slightly more convincing presentation, especially with regard to color, but I stress that this is a matter of personal taste and also probably incremental degrees. Both of these transfers have many of the same anomalies, including softness at various times and some minor color fluctuations that give a "pulsing" aspect a time or two. But I found the flesh tones more accurate on the Criterion release. There's nothing really to complain about with the Universal release, though, which considering Universal's spotty track record with its catalog releases is something of a minor miracle.


Charade Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Charade is presented with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix delivered via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. This obviously narrow rendering still supports the film's snappy dialogue and equally snappy Henry Mancini score quite easily. There's a surprising amount of punch to some of the foley effects as well (those who grate at fingernails on blackboards may have the same reaction as Scobie rips down the side of a rooftop by the hook on his missing hand). Fidelity is very good and dynamic range is fairly wide.
