Django

 (1966)

Django Blu-ray features poor video and great audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

Django is a lone stranger who roams the West dragging a coffin filled with chaos towards a destiny ruled by vengeance. Co-writer/director Sergio Corbucci packs his landmark classic with indelible images, unforgettable performances and some of the most shocking brutality of any 'Spaghetti Western' ever made. This is the still- controversial epic that defined a genre, launched a phenomenon and inspired over 50 unofficial sequels.

For more about Django and the Django Blu-ray release, see Django Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Franco Nero, José Bódalo, Loredana Nusciak, Ángel Álvarez, Simón Arriaga, Eduardo Fajardo
Director: Sergio Corbucci

Django Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.66:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Sergio Corbucci's Django arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Argent Films.

The high-definition transfer is very problematic. A massive amount of machine noise has essentially destroyed all of the fine detail and wiped out the depth healthy high-definition transfers typically deliver. There are close-ups, for example, where the noise completely overwhelms the image (see screencapture #5), to the point of even collapsing the film's color-scheme. Furthermore, it appears that some partial attempts were made to tone done the noise which have further exacerbated the erosion of detail, clarity and contrast. If light is restricted, there are entire sequences where the film is virtually unwatchable (see screencapture #12 where the horses are essentially erased). All of this is indeed very unfortunate because under the noise clearly there is excellent detail and beautiful colors. Naturally, I must speculate that a new scan done on a properly calibrated scanner will produce entirely different results. (This is a Region-Free Blu-ray release. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).

Note: Having also seen Blue Underground's release of Django, I must point out that there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Argent Films are not to be blamed for the problematic high-definition transfer their release uses. In fact, it appears that they attempted to tone down the harsh noise and make the film somewhat watchable. On the Blue Underground release the noise is even more pronounced.


Django Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray release: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and Italian DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Argent Films have provided optional English and English SDH subtitles for the man feature.

The lossless English track serves the film very well. During the shootouts dynamic intensity is surprisingly good, while Luis Bacalov's legendary score has gained a type of depth that is simply missing from the R1 DVD release of Django. Aside from some minor sync issues, which are indeed inherited, there are no annoying pops, strong background hiss, audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review. All in all, this is a lush, very well balanced lossless track.
