Die Hard Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

All films are presented in their original anamorphic 35mm aspect ratio and are encoded in MPEG4 AVC at 1080p resolution.

Die Hard Video rating: 3.5
Not a bad transfer by a long shot. Die Hard has had a somewhat sketchy history on home video, but it looks pretty good here. The image is undamaged, good color, and natural grain. Fleshtones are accurate, Shadow detail is also good: important for a film that takes place at night. Keep in mind that this was filmed 20 years ago, so don't expect a shiny, slick presentation.

Die Hard 2: Die Harder Video rating: 2
Almost as disappointing as the movie itself, the transfer is muddy, with much of it looking like it had been shot through a filter. Fleshtones take on an unnatural orange tint, and the image also lacks depth. Positives are the lack of edge enhancement or other artifacts that plagued the DVD versions. Grain is also not a problem. In the end, this transfer just doesn't appear to be high definition. I've seen better upconverted DVDs of films from the same era.

Die Hard With A Vengeance Video rating: 3.5
Probably the biggest upgrade as far as video quality goes. This film always looked pretty bad on DVD, with terrible edge enhancement and poor color. The Blu-ray sets things right. The disc is much sharper, with natural detail and without the exaggerated sharpness caused by edge enhancement. Color and fleshtones look a lot better. Though the film is still grainy (it was filmed that way), it is not obtrusive. HD depth and detail are there as well. Finally this movie gets the transfer it deserves.


Die Hard Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

All films are encoded in lossless 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

Die Hard Sound rating: 2.5.
This film originally played in Dolby Stereo (Dolby Surround) with some 4.1 70MM showings at select theaters. The film has been remixed into 5.1 and the results are just fair. Dialogue is clear for the most part, but there are scenes where the soundtrack sounds unnaturally harsh and bright, which can be torture for the ears since there's a LOT of breaking glass. Those of you with Re-Eq on their surround processors will definitely want to engage it. Bass response is also somewhat lacking, the scenes with explosions lack the punch you'd expect, even when considering the film's age. However, surround envelopment is decent.
The film has an additional English soundtrack encoded in DD 2.0 surround @ 224kbps, and also includes tracks in DD 5.1 @ 448kbps in French and Spanish.

Die Hard 2: Die Harder Sound rating: 2.0
The audio here takes a step backward like the video. Gunshots sound muffled and unnatural. Dialogue is mixed low. Explosions are even more lacking in bass response, and surround envelopment is low to non-existent. Positives are better dynamic range, and the score sounds clearer. So far this film is 0 for 3.
To add insult to injury, the disc appears to have an encoding error in the DTS Master-Audio extension. On my Panasonic DMP-BD30, I was unable to hear any sound, even though my receiver properly displayed "DTS-HD MSTR". However I was able to listen to the DTS core (@ 1.5 Mbps) on my Sony PlayStation 3. Others have noted the same thing, but as of this writing, there hasn't been any word from Fox on the problem or if there will be any kind of disc replacements with the proper lossless encoding.
As with the first film, it contains an additional English soundtrack encoded in DD 2.0 surround @ 224kbps, and also has tracks in DD 5.1 @ 448kbps in French and Spanish.

Die Hard With A Vengeance Sound rating: 4.
Until Live Free Or Die Hard, this was the best sounding film to date. The first of the films to play theatrically in 5.1 digital sound, it has much, much better mix. Dialogue is crisp and clear, dynamics are wide range, surround envelopment is rich, and there is great bass response. The mix is also much more creative with discrete effects: in the tunnel sequence when John McClane shuts the truck's door, there is a solid *thump* in the subwoofer. Another cool effect is gunfire erupting from the left surround channel unexpectedly, causing a friend of mine to jump! A terrific soundtrack.
The film has an additional French and Spanish soundtracks encoded in DD 2.0 surround @ 224kbps.
