City Slickers

 (1991)

City Slickers Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Mitch is a middle aged big-city radio ads salesman. He and his friends Ed and Phil are having mid-life crisis. They decide the best birthday gift for them is to go on a two week holiday wild west cattle drive from New Mexico to Colorado. There they meet a genuine cowboy, Curly, who not only teaches them how to become real cowboys but also one or two other things about life in the open air of the west!

For more about City Slickers and the City Slickers Blu-ray release, see City Slickers Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Billy Crystal, Daniel Stern, Bruno Kirby, Patricia Wettig, Helen Slater, Jack Palance

City Slickers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The AVC-encoded Blu-ray of City Slickers presents a richly detailed image that has been neither artificially sharpened nor degrained for sensibilities conditioned by digital technology. It's a film-like image that may strike some viewers as "soft", but fully preserves all the rough detail of rocks, cliffs, dust, cattle hides and Curly's leathery visage. Black levels are generally excellent, with only minor crushing occasionally evident in scenes where the exposure clearly had to be "pushed" to obtain certain effects (e.g., the rain storm). Dean Semler's color palette favors cooler blue tones in the urban scenes of Mitch's real life, but he immediately switches to warm browns, ochres and greens when the friends head west. Even the scenes at night have the warm yellow and orange of campfires, and the skies are purple (a phenomenon that should be familiar to anyone who has visited New Mexico). The "cold open" in Pamplona has its own distinctive look, dominated by red kerchiefs.

Film grain is visible but not obtrusive. The source material appears to be well-preserved.


City Slickers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

City Slickers was originally released in Dolby Surround, and its first DVD included that track as an option. However, the creators of the 5.1 track presented here in DTS lossless must have had access to the original stems, because the soundtrack has none of the artifacts often heard when discrete tracks have to be "extracted" from a surround matrix. Pans from front to rear and left to right are clean and effective, e.g. during the cattle stampede, and dialogue remains firmly anchored to the center channel, without any of the echo or hollowness that remixing often creates. Typical ambient sounds such as raindrops or hoofbeats occur naturally in the surrounds without calling too much attention to themselves. City Slickers isn't an action spectacular, but if you didn't know otherwise, you'd think it was made in 5.1.

Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of the remix (and lossless presentation) is the stirring score by Marc Shaiman (with Thomas Richard Sharp). A musical chameleon, Shaiman is an expert at reviving musical styles, not as parody or pastiche, but as if they'd never gone away. His gifts are evident in films as diverse as The Addams Family, A Few Good Men and the South Park movie, and he's also a successful Broadway composer. For City Slickers, Shaiman wrote a theme that could have come from Elmer Bernstein's score for The Magnificent Seven but is completely original. As the film progresses and the characters grow, Shaiman's theme swells from irony to triumph. In between, he finds the appropriate underscoring for the thrust of every scene, whether slapstick comedy or genuine peril. My estimation of Shaiman's score grows every time I revisit City Slickers, and the Blu-ray presentation is the best I've heard.
