Friday

 (1995)

Friday Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Just another day. But what a day. A day that shows a lighter side to life in the ’hood. That brought Ice Cube (Barbershop) and Chris Tucker (Rush Hour) to a wider audience. And that’s now even more uproarious in an Extended Director’s Cut never before available. It’s Friday, and Craig (Cube) and Smokey (Tucker) must come up with $200 they owe a local bully or there won’t be a Saturday. Co-writer Cube, director F. Gary Gray and other innovative movie talents lace the plot with shrewdly hilarious looks at family (including John Witherspoon), a preacher (Bernie Mac), a girl-next-door (Nia Long) and all manner of the good ’N’ bad of life in South Central. This is keepin’-it-real comedy for every day of the week.

For more about Friday and the Friday Blu-ray release, see Friday Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Friday Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the VC-1 codec (at an average bitrate of 25Mbps), Friday never looked this good. Considering it's been a decade since New Line's Platinum DVD release, we're duefor a visual upgrade, and that's exactly what Warner delivered with this Blu-ray. Solely judging from facial textures and fabric on clothing, the increase in fine object detail is largely impressive. There are still several scenes that appear hazy or out of focus (mostly interior shots), but I'd say at least 90% of the runtime possesses an impressive level of clarity. Moving on to the colors, there's something odd going on with the spectrum in the transfer during indoor shots. Appearing overly saturated and blown out, the transfer lacks the natural tones of the outdoor sequences. This effect could also be related to contrast issues, but I'm guessing it's a direct result of differing film choices in the original source material (especially when you consider how great the outdoor shots look), or could be related to the incorporation of post-processing. Another major difference between the indoor and outdoor sequences, is the heavy level of grain that speckles the transfer during the scenes inside Craig's house. If you have an aversion to grain, you may be slightly disappointed in the noisy tendency of the visuals from time to time. Personally, I found it to be a welcomed inclusion rather than obscurring textures with an aggressive use of DNR.

In the end, Friday may not rival the attractiveness of a glitzy modern production, but I'm confident this is the best the film is going to look given the condition of the source elements (which have held up surprisingly well over the years).


Friday Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Although New Line's catalog is now being released by Warner, I'm impressed they're continuing to show a dedication to including 7.1 audio tracks on their catalog releases. I've always hoped a greater number of studios will begin releasing titles with 7.1 audio (mostly to justify the additional cost and effort that went into incorporating the extra two channels in my home theater), but they continue to be the exception rather than the norm. For anyone holding onto their prior DVD release, you can throw that 2-channel beast out the window and finally enjoy Friday the way it was meant to be heard. The clarity in the TrueHD track is almost a revelation, with dialogue that never exhibits an ounce of crackle or hiss, music that'll beat your subwoofer into submission, and environmental effects that turn your living room into the streets of Los Angeles. Most comedic offerings don't incorporate a great deal of surround use, relying largely on a front-heavy design to deliver the dialogue. Friday doesn't fall into that trap, allowing the back-firing of Smokey's car or the patter of Ezal's approaching footsteps to resonate from the specific area of the room that's appropriate for the scene. I won't go so far as to say it rivals the best audio tracks the format has to offer, but when you consider the limitations of the budget and the 2-channel audio on prior releases, this new experience is far better than I was expecting.
