Father Hood / Life with Mikey Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Father Hood
Score: 2.5/5


Much like the movie it serves, Father Hood's high definition transfer doesn't particularly impress, but neither is it a complete disaster. The image begins dubiously, appearing almost like plastic: hugely inorganic and very smooth. Fortunately, it picks up a bit of life after the title credits. Grain fluctuates from ridiculously spiky to practically nonexistent. Details range from pleasant to, again, ultra-smooth and waxy. Black levels are often washed out, and the color palette appears a bit unnaturally bright. Still, the image proves highly watchable from a base perspective. There are enough quality facial and clothing textures and a sufficiently vibrant palette to please undemanding audiences and at least get videophiles through the film. Certainly it's a bargain basement sort of transfer, but then again so too is the Blu-ray release.

Life with Mikey
Score: 2.5/5


Mill Creek's Life with Mikey high definition transfer isn't exactly on the cutting edge of Blu-ray catalogue transfer design. This is a highly mediocre image that that's a bit smooth and soft. Colors are often unimpressive, with the brightest shades garish and the lesser hues dull and muddy. The image takes on a somewhat flat appearance. Light grain hovers around, but pasty skin and uninspired details rule the runtime. Blacks are fair and flesh tones only slightly rosy. The image sports significant wear and tear over the opening title sequence, but that's lessened drastically through the rest of the film. An exception occurs when Barry gifts a fur to Angie; an avalanche of splotches and speckles cover the screen. A few light edge halos appear and lower light color transitions aren't perfect, but there are otherwise no major, similar eyesore flaws. It's not particularly pretty, but for the price and the quality of the movie chances are many viewers can live with the results.


Father Hood / Life with Mikey Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Father Hood
Score: 3.0/5


Father Hood's DTS-HD MA 2.0 lossless soundtrack doesn't set the world on fire, but it's a serviceable presentation, particularly in its handling of the film's diverse and regular musical output. Popular music sounds pretty good all around. It plays with commendable clarity, satisfying spacing across the front, fine balance, and just the right output level. Big sound effects such as car chases, explosions, and some of the other fun elements the movie packs in play with passable authenticity. This isn't the sort of track that will place listeners in the midst of the action, but when a helicopter buzzes just above a speeding car, for example, the sensation is adequately conveyed. Ambient effects are few but moderately effective, such as slight shifting and coughing in an otherwise quiet courtroom or the background din of a busy news office. Dialogue hangs around the center, plays with good clarity, and is never challenged or overpowered by music or effects. All in all, this is a passable track that handles its duties well enough, particularly considering Mill Creek's aggressive pricing.

Life with Mikey
Score: 3.0/5


Life with Mikey also features a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack, and the results are largely similar: acceptable but hardly invigorating. The track does well in energizing and spacing music. It spreads to the furthest ends of the stage and plays at a hefty volume at reference level. Clarity suffices but don't expect seamless, realistic notes. Some elements can be a bit sharp, but overall balance and authenticity are both satisfactory. The track delivers a hint of ambience here and there and handles the rumble of a subway car with commendable energy. Dialogue is largely fine, remaining clear and intelligible as it stays focused in the middle part of the stage. Overall, this is a fair track that won't dazzle anyone in the listening audience but that does carry the movie well enough.
