Hanging for Django Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Blu-ray case boasts a "New transfer from original 35mm negative, digitally restored," but the results are disappointing to say the least. For one, the film is inexplicably presented in interlaced 1080i/AVC, which is a bad, bad choice for a movie with a lot of quick pans and zooms. At times, the image noticeably stutters as the camera whips to and fro, and there are even some combing artifacts visible to the naked eye. There has also been a significant amount of digital noise reduction applied to the picture; film grain has been wiped out—although, sometimes, you can still see the movement of the grain, but not the grain itself—leaving faces a little too waxy. It's not the worst case of DNR I've seen, but it definitely seems like an unnecessary alteration. On the plus side, the print does look fairly clean. There are some minor scratches and occasional specks, but nothing distracting. Does the film benefit from a high definition transfer? Sure. I've never seen the film on DVD, but the Blu-ray has an appreciable lift in clarity from typical standard definition sources. That's not to say the picture is sharp. Like a lot of spaghetti westerns—where rapid filmmaking was more important than careful filmmaking—focus is often inaccurate, even in many closeups. When the image is in focus, you do notice high definition detail but also notice how the picture would've been sharper without so much DNR. Anyway, problematic seems to be the word to use here.


Hanging for Django Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The audio doesn't fare much better, if any. The disc includes two tracks, the "original" Italian—the sound for most spaghetti westerns was dubbed entirely in post—and an English mix. Both are presented in lossy Dolby Digital 2.0, and both have significant issues. The Italian track is brighter and brasher, with an often harsh high-end, while the English mix has a muddied, mid-heavy sound that lacks clarity. Additionally, regardless of which track you choose, you'll be subjected to a near-constant hiss that's loud enough to be a distraction. The mixes are at their best when highlighting Vasco Vassilli's score, which hits all the usual spaghetti western notes—plaintive harmonica, lazily strummed guitar, piercing trumpet solos. Sounds effects are as tinny as you'd expect from the genre, and while the dialogue can be either too hot or too muddled depending on which track you go with, it's at least reasonably easy to understand what the characters are saying. The disc includes optional English subtitles.
