Footloose

 (1984)

Footloose Blu-ray features bad video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Classic tale of teen rebellion and repression features a delightful combination of dance choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small town in the West, he's in for a real case of culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can't quite believe he's living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. There is one small pleasure, however: Ariel, a troubled but lovely blonde with a jealous boyfriend. and a Bible-thumping minister, who is responsible for keeping the town dance-free. Ren and his classmates want to do away with this ordinance, especially since the senior prom is around the corner, but only Ren has the courage to initiate a battle to abolish the outmoded ban and revitalize the spirit of the repressed townspeople.

For more about Footloose and the Footloose Blu-ray release, see Footloose Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Writer: Dean Pitchford

Footloose Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.5 of 5

Just about everything that could go wrong went wrong. Footloose is an absolute disaster of a Blu-ray transfer. It's nearly unwatchable, and videophiles in particular will cringe for 107 straight minutes. The only good things to say about the transfer is that fine detailing is sometimes adequate and colors are occasionally natural and pleasant. Otherwise, the transfer is an abject disaster, and it looks even worse in motion than the accompanying screenshots suggest. Evidence of noise reduction abounds. Details fall flat, faces appear smooth and waxy, soft and smeary elements are almost always evident, and grain is constantly frozen in place, except for when it shifts in globs around moving characters, like in-motion objects have some kind of gravitational pull about them that unnaturally stretches and warps surrounding elements, such as walls. Colors are sometimes dim and dull but sometimes stable, balanced, and vibrant; Ren's yellow VW bug and a silver pickup truck that appears regularly throughout the film don't look half bad, but flesh tones range from natural to excessively worn and run down. Compression artifacts plague the entire image. There's a parade of jagged edges that run throughout the movie, and banding is often visible. Heavy crush destroys every dark corner of any and all blackened frames. Edge halos appear here and there, but fortunately edge enhancement isn't Gladiator-level bad. There's some kind of problem in just about every frame. Footloose is in desperate need of a re-master, and this release just screams "cash in for the new movie and plop any available transfer onto Blu-ray with no concern for quality." Paramount's track record isn't all roses, but the studio definitely knows how to put out stellar discs. It's a shame this isn't one of them.


Footloose Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

And now for some good news. Footloose's DTS-HD MA 6.1 lossless soundtrack is very much worthy of its high definition release. Paramount's audio presentation isn't going to redefine classic movie high definition audio presentations, but this is a satisfying and revealing listen that's sure to please longtime fans and newcomers alike. Things start with a bang to the beats of one of the 1980's most iconic songs. Kenny Loggins's Footloose blares from the speakers with excellent clarity and an inviting sense of space. Guitar riffs are sharp, higher beats are smooth, and Loggins's vocals are so natural that listeners might believe they're standing next to him in the recording studio, not listening from home years after the fact. The surrounds carry a natural load, and the music really takes advantage of that added channel across the back. The good news is that the rest of the film's music is equally potent and invigorating; rarely have the 1980s sounded so good, and this disc is nearly worth buying for the Loggins song alone. Sadly, the picture quality renders that idea moot. The rest of the track is of a high quality, too. Lithgow's opening monologue inside the church has a nice and spacious echoing sensation to it, the words gently bouncing off the walls and placing the listener in one of the pews amongst the congregation. The bleeps and bloops of the local arcade prove nicely clear and immersive, but some other ambient effects -- the din of the school cafeteria as heard in chapter three, for example -- sound unkempt and undefined. There's a good presence and strength to a few heavier effects, such as when a train slowly rumbles and rattles across the front in chapter five. Dialogue is center-focused and perfectly crisp and natural. This is a very good soundtrack -- it's nearly everything it should be -- that would have made a great companion to better video quality.
