Gorgo Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Gorgo is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of VCI Entertainment with an MPEG-2 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. There are two criteria by which Gorgo should be measured, The first of these is how good the film looks compared to previous shoddy home video releases or even broadcast prints, and in that regard the answer is rather spectacular. The restoration demonstration shows that the film has undergone some significant color timing improvement (water is no longer pea green) as well as a deepening of contrast, which helps the many fog enshrouded or otherwise dark sequences. However, on a more objective level, one has to admit that Gorgo still looks pretty ragged. The overall image here is fairly soft, though it's obviously been digitally sharpened to the point that there's persistent ringing in more brightly lit scenes. The blue screen work here also reveals its seams, especially around foreground characters' hair, while the rear projection and stock footage just look pretty shoddy overall. While the film has obviously been cleaned of scratches and other debris, the good news is that there doesn't appear to have been any over aggressive DNR applied, since grain is more than evident throughout this presentation, especially in the ubiquitous opticals. Fans of Gorgo will no doubt be thrilled with this upgrade, however minimal it may seem to those who don't have a long history with the film.


Gorgo Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Gorgo features an uncompressed LPCM 2.0 track, though I personally could not detect any real stereo separation and am thus assuming that this is simply a mono track pumped out over two channels (any definitive word to the contrary would be appreciated and I am happy to update the review). There's some persistent distortion in the upper midrange of this track which is especially apparent in some of the music cues (strangely, it's noticeably largely absent from the music only track). Otherwise, though, this sounds fairly spry, if awfully boxy. A decided lack of fullness on the low end keeps Gorgo's rampage (not mention dear old Mom's) sounding perhaps a bit less visceral than some might have hoped. Dialogue is clear for the most part, though it's occasionally obscured by effects.
