Full Metal Jacket Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

This presentation of Full Metal Jacket is extraordinary. I've never seen this film in anything but a 4:3 presentation (which is the way Kubrick intended his films to be shown on home video), but the new, 1080p theatrical wide 1.85:1 version looks so much more natural. As today's home theater systems are able to more closely replicate the theatrical experience, presenting this disc in its theatrical aspect ratio rather than the home video 4:3 version is not a decision I am disappointed with.

I don't have the old Blu-ray edition to compare this to, but from what I understand it's not a good looking transfer. Even without a direct comparison to the old Blu-ray, I have seen this film countless times on VHS and DVD. This is the best I have ever seen it, bar none. This is a very lifelike image. I didn't notice any noise except in a few darker scenes, and even that was miniscule. There are no noticeable specs or dirt on the print. The image is sharp and clear and there is no edge enhancement to be seen. I'm simply ecstatic to have this film looking this good on Blu-ray. This is not a picture that will "pop" off your screen, but the source is in such good shape and is so crystal clear, that this is certainly a joy to behold for a longtime fan of this movie. You won't find Full Metal Jacket looking better anywhere else.


Full Metal Jacket Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

This is a good sounding track. Warner Brothers presents Full Metal Jacket with a 5.1 PCM uncompressed track along with the old standby, the Dolby Digital 5.1 track. There is not a lot of active surround sound during the first half of the film, but it certainly works well. Echos inside the barracks sound great. Bass heavy militaristic marching music sounds wonderful, as if it is being played by a live band in your living room. It is crisp and clean. Once the action switches to Vietnam, surrounds get much more active in the action sequences. Explosions and gunfire fill the room, immersing the viewer in the fighting. The "industrial," bass heavy, bearer-of-dread score for the combat and intense Parris Island scenes mixed in with popular music from the era for the more relaxed scenes works remarkably well in this film.
