Goemon

 (2009)

Goemon Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In 1582 Oda Nobunaga was on the verge of conquering all of Japan, but was forced to commit suicide at Honno-ji Temple by one of his generals, Akechi Mitsuhide. Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Nobunaga’s top general, overthrew Akechi a few days later and completed Nobunaga’s dream of unifying Japan under one ruler. The world was at peace for a time, but soon a ninja bandit named Ishikawa Goemon appeared, using his super-human abilities to steal from the rich and give to the poor—a habit which cemented his reputation as a hero to commoners everywhere.

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

Goemon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Imagine 300 playing out in feudal Japan, with occasionally bright bursts of Speed Racer-esque color dotting the landscape, and you'll at least have some idea of how inventive and sleek Goemon's AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1 looks. The film has the same smooth, slightly diffuse, intentionally soft quality that 300 featured, albeit without that film's omnipresent sepia toned desaturation. While there are certainly some desaturated elements in Goemon (notably some of the flashbacks), what's more arresting are the unusually filtered sequences, which see repeated use of certain color palettes for different elements of the storyline. Therefore we get a lot of red-oranges in the sequences with Goemon's hapless assistant and the little boy they take under their collective wing, and a nice violet-purple hue to several of the love scenes between Goemon and Chacha. The CGI work here is spectacular, but, again, it's that slightly unreal, smooth and not overly defined look that made 300 so interesting. The non-CGI elements look spectacular here, with a wealth of fine detail, nice clarity and sharpness and always extremely robust color. This is one of the nicest looking Blu-rays, albeit one with an admittedly very distinctive "look" culled from an aggressively processed image, to come down the pike in quite a while.


Goemon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Two lossless tracks are offered on this new Blu-ray, the original Japanese soundtrack delivered with an excellent Dolby TrueHD 6.1 mix, and an okay if sometimes laughable (as usual) English dub, oddly "only" in Dolby TrueHD 5.1. I spot checked the English dub and it's fine for those of you who can't stand subtitles, but I still highly recommend sticking with the original Japanese track, which is incredibly well detailed, featuring an awesome display of immersive sound effects, and clear, precise dialogue, despite some evidence of copious looping. From the first exciting sequence where Goemon breaks into the palace to raid the vault, we get a beautifully rendered display of both large and small sound effects which are placed extremely smartly around the soundfield. The film has a wealth of big sonic moments, but strangely there isn't the usual overkill of LFE, which actually works to the film's benefit. Fidelity is excellent, delivering superb reproduction throughout all frequency ranges, and the balance between dialogue, effects and underscore is also extremely well handled.
