Good Morning, Vietnam

 (1987)

Good Morning, Vietnam Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A new Disc Jockey is shipped from Crete to Vietnam to bring humor to Armed Forces Radio. He turns the studio on it's ear and becomes wildly popular with the troops but runs afoul of the middle management who think he isn't G.I. enough. While he is off the air, he tries to meet Vietnamese especially girls, and begins to have brushes with the real war that never appears on the radio.

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

Starring: Robin Williams, Forest Whitaker, Tung Thanh Tran, J.T. Walsh, Bruno Kirby, Robert Wuhl
Director: Barry Levinson

Good Morning, Vietnam Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Unlike Dead Poets Society, Good Morning, Vietnam has been scrubbed and buffed for its Blu-ray debut. It isn't the worst use of noise reduction I've seen, far from it, but it is obvious on more than one occasion and quashes its fair share of fine textures. (Tragically, Dead Poets Society will probably draw more criticism from casual viewers simply because it's a softer film and its transfer is extremely faithful to John Seale's original photography.) To combat the side effects of Vietnam's DNR, edge enhancement has also been added to the mix, making the image sometimes appear sharper than its Dead Poets counterpart but introducing some minor ringing, faint edge halos and intermittent aliasing. Still, don't let all that paint too grim a picture. Disney's 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation, while overworked and over-preened, still bests its DVD predecessor and, all things considered, doesn't look too bad. Closeups haven't been affected too drastically, waxiness isn't a prevailing problem, a variety of decently resolved textures have survived the assault, and edges are commendable and, for the most part, consistent. Meanwhile, color and contrast are striking (albeit somewhat dark and heavy), with an array of bold jungle greens, rich primaries, inky blacks, sun-baked earthtones and well-saturated skintones on display. Shadow detail and delineation are sound as well, as is the impact of the image at first glance. As it stands, some viewers will quip, "DNR? What DNR? It looks great to me." Meaning a small but vocal minority will be the only voice asking for a more filmic transfer. I strongly suspect the master that was used here has been in the can for some time, so hopefully the studio will start from scratch when Vietnam's 30th anniversary is on the horizon.


Good Morning, Vietnam Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Disney's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't going to wow anyone either, but not because anything is particularly wrong with the mix. While the jungles of Vietnam and the bustling cityscape of Saigon present countless sonic opportunities, Good Morning, Vietnam suffers with a front-heavy soundfield and several prioritization mishaps. None of it is too debilitating or disappointing, mind you, especially considering the age of the film and the nature of its original sound design. But it also doesn't draw in the listener or fill the stage as assertively as it could. LFE output is adequate but a touch one-note, the rear speakers are active but underwhelming, and directionality is rather lifeless, offering only superficial movement and ordinary channel pans. Thankfully, dialogue remains clear and intelligible throughout, and Levinson's selection of Vietnam-era rock-n-roll saves the day. From the Beach Boys' "I Get Around" to James Brown's "I Feel Good" to Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World," the classic music is easily the highlight of the track and roars to life every time it's deployed.
