Hard Candy

 (2005)

Hard Candy Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

A smart, charming teenage girl, Hayley probably shouldn't be going to a local coffee shop to meet Jeff, a 30- something fashion photographer she met on the Internet. But Hayley's ready to have fun, and soon she's mixing screwdrivers at Jeff's place and stripping for an impromptu photo shoot. It's Jeff's lucky night--until his vision blurs and he passes out. Turns out Hayley isn't as innocent as she looks.

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

Starring: Patrick Wilson, Ellen Page, Sandra Oh, Odessa Rae, G.J. Echternkamp

Hard Candy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The bulk of Hard Candy plays out in Jeff's hilltop home, a Los Angeles ranch style domain filled with that lustrous bleached yellow light so redolent of southern California. The film's AVC encoded 1080p image (in 2.35:1) can therefore seemed blanched with low contrast at times, but a closer look reveals a wealth of detail and excellent sharpness. Slade post processes some shots, typically segues or other transitions, with an at times grainy ambience and desaturated color. However the bulk of the film, while tilted toward the yellow end of the spectrum, offers a pleasing image that reveals everything from individual sweat droplets on Jeff's tortured visage to the clinging red gelatin on Hayley's scalpel (don't ask). Flesh tones are accurate (if, again, on the yellow-pink side of things), and detail in Jeff's lair is well defined.


Hard Candy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

What do you look (or listen) for when approaching an audio mix, lossless or otherwise? Do you insist on knock your socks off sonic effects, or are you content to let the film's aims chart their own course. If you're of the former persuasion, chances are you'll be underwhelmed by Hard Candy's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack. If, on the other hand, you let yourself relax (if that's possible, given this film's ethos) into the very subtle soundscape provided on this Blu-ray, you're apt to come away quite pleased with the results. There are a bevy of really excellent effects on this track, from panicked heavy breathing which surrounds the listener, to some nice panning effects, as when Jeff, trapped in an office chair, attempts to maneuver his escape. Actual ambient effects are few and far between, but the film's dialogue is handled cleanly and crisply, albeit mostly front and center, with some great attention paid to sonic differences in close-ups and midrange shots. Ostensibly "little" effects, as when Hayley sorts through a rock garden to discover a hidden safe, play out extremely well here, albeit very subtly. This is certainly not "summer blockbuster" sonic material, but it's incredibly effective on its own terms.
