Futureworld Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Futureworld is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. This was a fairly low budget affair to begin with and was never a huge hit, so has probably not been curated especially carefully over the years, and this high definition transfer can only do so much with some problematic elements. There's occasional damage sprinkled throughout, with quite a few specks (both white and black) dotting the premises, as well as some minor scratches and the like. The color here seems to have faded appreciably, with skin tones verging perilously close to brown territory quite a bit of the time (Metrocolor has this tendency to begin with quite a bit of the time). The overall image is fairly soft looking, and actually gets toward the fuzzy end of things in midrange and wide shots. Those who fear DNR need not worry, as even if there has been some digital scrubbing applied (which is doubtful), there is still quite visible grain apparent, especially in the many optical effects included in the film, where it's understandably and expectedly magnified.


Futureworld Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Futureworld features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix that has withstood the vagaries of time much better than the image quality. Fidelity remains very good, if not spectacularly brilliant, with dialogue, effects and score cleanly presented and well prioritized. There's not a huge amount of stereo separation here, and in fact a lot of the time the dialogue sounds like it's pumping out of both channels simultaneously, but even without an overly wide splaying of effects, this mix has a reasonably fulsome sound and certainly nothing like the damage issues of the video elements.
