Dirty Dancing


Dirty Dancing Blu-ray features terrible video and mediocre audio in this poor Blu-ray release

The summer of 1963 innocent 17-year-old Baby (Grey) vacations with her parents at a Catskill's resort. One evening she is drawn to the staff quarters by stirring music. There she meets Johnny, the hotel dance instructor, who is as experienced as Baby is naive. Baby soon becomes Johnny's pupil in dance and love.

Dirty Dancing Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.0 of 5

Dirty Dancing stumbles onto Blu-ray with what is, unfortunately, one of the worst transfers out there. The 1080p, 1.78:1-framed image disappoints on almost every level, with problems so egregious and detrimental to the viewing experience that even those without a care in the world as to how relatively "good" or "bad" a transfer looks will be alarmed at the obvious missteps throughout. It's bad enough that one opening shot looks like some Coke was spilled on the screen, or that a hazy blue line randomly but briefly appears over the left-hand side of the screen during an establishing beachside shot in chapter six, but those represent the least of Dirty Dancing's problems. The picture looks terribly rough at the outset; whether or not the establishing shots (beyond the highly-stylized opening title sequence) were meant to look like they were captured on spotty 1960s film stock is up for debate, but the transfer renders the opening scenes terribly, sporting murky details, excess noise, plenty of popping white speckles, low levels of detail, and spotty color reproduction. Then the fun really begins. The transfer is packed with excessive aliasing that causes an unnatural wavy effect on various objects throughout the film; the white-with-blue-stripes shirt that Jerry Orbach's character wears upon his arrival to Kellerman's fluctuates so badly that it's enough to induce a headache. Adding insult to injury are jagged edges that are noticeable in practically every scene; lines in clothing are particularly susceptible, and even human outlines can take on a blocky outer edge. If that were not enough, the image sometimes appears artificially smoothed over and flat, flesh tones are often displayed with an aggressive red push, blocking is often visible, and blacks usually overwhelm the image and devour any details in their wake. The plusses of the transfer are few; fine detail can appear as borderline decent in a few scenes, particularly when examining the textures on tree trunks or more intricately-crafted clothing. A few bright exterior shots later in the film also resolve facial details fairly well. Color reproduction is steadily bland, with some shades, particularly reds, unnaturally boosted, while other shades seem dimmer in comparison. Indeed, Dirty Dancing can look passably good if one were to glance at just the right moment. Still, a few decent shots can't make up for what is nothing short of an abysmal transfer that is one of the worst the format has seen, particularly among high-profile films.

Dirty Dancing Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Dirty Dancing's Blu-ray release stirs up a passable but ultimately underwhelming PCM 6.1 uncompressed soundtrack. This is a fairly flat and routine track that lacks much kick and vigor, two elements desperately needed to bring the true Dirty Dancing experience to fruition. The track proves to be front heavy with some light rear channel supportive elements in musical reproduction, but the various songs remain entrenched across the primary three channels. Some of the punchier tunes heard throughout do offer some low end support, but generally, the presentation will leave listeners wanting a fuller, clearer, and more robust presentation of the picture's famed soundtrack. Fortunately, the finale sounds comparatively good, offering a more engaging presentation that enjoys the richest clarity and proves the most satisfying listen in the film. The track also delivers some scattered atmospherics that also come primarily through the front; never does the listener feel truly immersed in the world of Dirty Dancing. Unfortunately, some dialogue becomes lost and/or muffled underneath music and sound effects, but the spoken word is, in general, suitably clear and discernible. While not on the same level as the bottom-feeding transfer, this uncompressed soundtrack rates as mediocre at best and a far cry from what the picture deserves.
