City Island

 (2009)

City Island Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

Meet the Rizzos, a family that might get along a lot better if only they could tell each other the truth. Dad Vince is the worst offender. But since the prison guard won't even admit that poker night is in fact acting class, how's he ever going to explain about his illegitimate son? His daughter works as a stripper when she's supposed to be in college, while young Vinnie Jr has a secret sexual fetish that involves a 24-hour webcam and the family's 300-pound neighbour. Vince's wife Joyce is the family's rock, but it's been a year since she enjoyed intimacy with her husband, and it's no surprise she thinks poker night spells A-F-F-A-I-R. When former prisoner Tony enters the Rizzos' lives, Joyce begins to suspect that the handsome young Tony isn't who Vince says he is. City Island is a funny, touching and smart family tale about the secrets of the past catching up with the lies of the present, and accepting that nobody's perfect - least of all your loved ones

City Island Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Anchor Bay brings City Island to Blu-ray with a nice looking but not problem-free 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. Generally, this image enjoys good-to-exceptional detailing in general objects such as clothes and faces, but it also excels down at the background level, too, revealing the finest details in dented and scraped lockers, for instance. Colors are bright and steady; Vince's blue correctional shirt in particular stands out. However, the image appears rather smooth and flat; grain is kept to a minium and the image takes on a fairly glossy look. Slight ringing, a few scattered and relatively thick halos, and several fuzzy and soft shots are to be seen here and there during the movie. Black levels are usually rock-solid but appear a bit too absorbing in a couple of shots, and the image suffers under some sloppy noise during several extended nighttime or low-light scenes. Meanwhile, flesh tones fluctuate all over the spectrum, from ghastly pale to excessively red. Still, for all the listed problems, they only appear here and there; City Island generally looks very nice at-a-glance. Anchor Bay's transfer is competent but not breathtaking; fans shouldn't be too disappointed with the results.


City Island Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

City Island's PCM 5.1 uncompressed soundtrack delivers an adequate listen that does everything well but never reaches the upper echelons of high definition soundtracks. This is a fairly basic track that's primarily dialogue- and music-driven; the spoken word never suffers through any major problems, and music is nicely spaced across the front, whether the instrumental score's lighter notes or the heavier, thumping elements heard during strip club scenes. Bass is involved usually as a companion to the music; it's better established and more natural when alongside the instrumental score, but as it gets heavier during the strip club scenes, it tends to lose its edge and seems content to just crank out as much noise as possible without concern for accuracy and realism. The track captures a few ambient effects, but the surrounds aren't used extensively throughout the picture. City Island's uncompressed track gets the job done without doing too much wrong and without going above and beyond the call of duty; it's sure to satisfy most listeners, but it's not the sort of track that's going to leave any lasting impression, either positive or negative.
