Hard Times

 (1975)

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

During the Great Depression, a down-on-his-luck loner, hops a freight train to New Orleans where, on the seedier side of town, he tries to make some quick money the only way he knows how-with his fists.

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

Starring: Charles Bronson, James Coburn, Jill Ireland, Strother Martin, Maggie Blye, Felice Orlandi
Director: Walter Hill

Hard Times Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Hard Times is presented on Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1. For my money, there is no better company releasing (or in this case, licensing) their deep catalog titles than Sony – Columbia. The care that this studio regularly lavishes on films that few remember is truly astounding, and it's once again completely in evidence in this beautiful high definition presentation of Hard Times. It probably goes without saying that this is a naturally filmic presentation (though one with a perhaps unexpected amount of grain at times), but the clarity and precision of the image here are really outstanding. Though the film tends to traffic almost exclusively in a pretty dour color scheme that highlights browns and grays, the palette here is surprisingly warm and inviting and always very accurate looking. Best of all, fine detail is exceptional throughout this presentation. There is some relative softness in just a couple of wide shots, which I am almost thinking were probably second unit material, but otherwise this is a first rate transfer and another beautiful example of the excellence Sony – Columbia is regularly providing to its licensors.


Hard Times Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Perhaps surprisingly Hard Times has been granted a repurposed surround mix which is delivered via DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. The good news here is that this isn't an overly artificial sounding redesign. The bulk of the surround activity is limited to some of the crowd noises during the fight sequences as well as Barry De Vorzon's nice, rootsy score. Dialogue is very cleanly presented. The film has some fairly wide dynamic range courtesy of some bombastic foley effects and the roars of the crowd during the fight scenes.
