Fast Times at Ridgemont High Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Whoa! Bad trip, man! Let's be clear right up front: Fast Times at Ridgemont High has never been a gorgeous looking film. It has virtually reeked of its low budget ethos from its theatrical exhibition through its various home video incarnations. But, wow, a lot of folks are probably going to be shocked at how shoddy this VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1 looks. The opening scenes in the shopping mall are swarming with on-again off-again digital noise that attacks backgrounds like hordes of tiny locusts. This particular anomaly thankfully improves dramatically after what would have been the first reel or so, but it never completely evaporates. While colors look suitably robust and lifelike throughout this presentation, the overall image is fuzzy, soft and rarely incredibly appealing. There are a couple of notable exceptions, one of them being the brightly lit poolside scene featuring Jason Leigh and Cates, which probably due to its brighter than usual lighting source, finally pops in something at least approaching high definition (and that's obviously good news to a lot of guys who probably have the scene forever imprinted on their libidinous memories). Somewhat surprisingly to this reviewer, the screencaps uploaded to this review actually look at least a little better than the film really does as it plays, something that isn't always the case when extracting a frame here or a frame there. A lot of these issues are no doubt endemic in the source elements, but this is still a pretty sad looking Blu-ray.


Fast Times at Ridgemont High Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fast Times at Ridgemont High's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track really comes alive in the film's ubiquitous use of rock and pop hits of the day (including a tune by my hometown of Portland's one attempt at producing a 1980's arena rock act, Quarterflash). The music, so important to establishing the time and tone (no pun intended) of the film sounds absolutely fantastic and actually rattles the floorboards a couple of times. While dialogue is certainly clear and crisp, the rest of the film doesn't bristle with surround activity, and indeed is fairly squarely rooted in the front channels, though there are some nice exceptions, as in the opening mall sequence and, later, in some of the establishing shots at the high school, where crowd noise permeates the side and rear channels. Fidelity here is very strong, dynamic range is excellent, and the overall mix is very well handled.
