Adventure

Film Noir Collection: Volume 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Note: screenshots are distributed among the four films in the following way:

Union Station: 1, 5, 9, 13, 17
Appointment With Danger: 2, 6, 10, 14, 18
Dark City: 3, 7, 11, 15, 19
Rope of Sand: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20

All four of these films are presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.34:1. All four films are culled from elements which show quite a bit of age related wear and tear as well as other damage. Union Station and Appointment With Danger both exhibit variable contrast and occasional print through and emulsion mottling. The final few minutes of Dark City is especially bad, with a milky white overlay that resembles splotches of bleach that have permeated the image. While Rope of Sand has the same print through issues, they're mostly limited to the first few minutes, after which things improve dramatically, and this has the strongest transfer in the bunch, with generally superior contrast and nicely modulated gray scale. Despite the damage on display, all of the films offer decent fine detail and as is Olive's wont, none have undergone any digital tweaking, so all four films are replete with natural grain (which in some dark scenes gets perilously close to digital noise in a couple of occasions).


Film Noir Collection: Volume 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

All four films in this collection feature lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono mixes, and all sound fine, within reason, with only occasional slight age related tinniness and lack of really expressive midrange on display. Strangely, Rope of Sand, which boasts the overall strongest video transfer, has the most distortion in its audio, with some ugly brittleness in that same midrange that makes playing the film at higher volumes a bit problematic. But given reasonable expectations, no one should be very disappointed with any of these tracks, even if they're simultaneously not very impressed.
