Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

 (1998)

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Journalist Raoul Duke and his lawyer Dr. Gonzo drive from LA to Las Vegas on a drugs binge. They nominally cover news stories, including a convention on drug abuse, but also sink deeper into a frightening psychedelic otherworld. As Vietnam, Altamont and the Tate killings impinge from the world of TV news, Duke and Gonzo see casinos, reptiles and the American dream.

For more about Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Blu-ray release, see Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Johnny Depp, Benicio del Toro, Tobey Maguire, Ellen Barkin, Gary Busey, Christina Ricci
Narrator: Johnny Depp
Director: Terry Gilliam

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

This high-definition transfer has a much more natural and balanced look than the one Universal used for their Blu-ray release of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, though it appears that it has been struck from the same master. The sharpening and contrast boosting that are noticeable on the transfer Universal used are practically gone, and the fine grain appears a lot more consistent. Traces of edge-enhancement occasionally pop up, but Criterion have toned down the brightness and contrast levels quite a bit. As a result, the harsh, digital look that is often present on Universal's transfer is practically nowhere to be seen. Some careful noise corrections have been performed as well, and the desert footage, for instance, looks a lot more appealing. On the transfer Universal used there are also various background color pulsations that are missing (screencapture 17). Criterion have also carefully cleaned up a great deal of flecks and tiny scratches. Lastly, there are absolutely no stability issues to report in this review whatsoever. All in all, Criterion's transfer is clearly the better one. This becomes painfully obvious if one projects Criterion's Blu-ray release on a large screen and then compares it to Universal's Blu-ray release. (Note: This is a Region-a "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

I watched the film with the English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. Its dynamic amplitude is excellent - the dialog is crisp, clear, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow, and there are absolutely no balance issues to report with Ray Cooper's music score. The bass is potent and punchy, while the high frequencies are not overdone. I tested a number of scenes with the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track and to be honest, I much prefer the English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track - Johnny Depp's narration is a lot better balanced and the shifting of the dynamics more natural.
