Help!

 (1965)

Help! Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

An Eastern religious cult declares that the new ring on Ringo's finger is the key element in a human sacrifice, and they will stop at nothing to obtain it. Meanwhile, a mad scientist believes that if he has the ring, he could rule the world.

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

Starring: The Beatles, Leo McKern, Eleanor Bron, Victor Spinetti, Roy Kinnear, Patrick Cargill

Help! Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Help! is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Capitol and Universal Music with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.67:1. Help! underwent a complete restoration in 2007 in preparation for the Special Edition DVD release, but there is precious little information about what, if any, further work has been done to prepare the HD master used for this transfer. My hunch is that this is probably an older master, as evidenced by a few niggling anomalies, the worst of which is quasi-ringing that may in fact at times simply be light roll off in a couple of backlit scenes, problems that might have been better addressed with newer technology or a higher res scan. That said, this Blu-ray offers some absolutely stunningly saturated colors (wait until you see the blue Ringo wears in an early scene in the lads' home). Fine detail is exceptional in extreme close-ups (take a gander at the first screenshot, where the fine hair on George's nose is easily visible). Some of the midrange shots are just a tad squishy looking, and occasionally some of the darker scenes have moderate crush with accompanying murky shadow detail. On the whole, though, things look very good indeed.


Help! Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Younger viewers may be shocked to learn that Help! was originally released with a mono soundtrack, but that obviously was the prevailing technology of the day (and of course audiophiles are still debating the merits of the mono and stereo mixes of The Beatles' recorded efforts). Both a repurposed stereo as well as surround track were done for Help's DVD release, and both of those options are now presented in lossless formats, LPCM 2.0 and DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. While the surround mix doesn't offer huge amounts of immersion, I can't imagine anyone not wanting to opt for that choice here, simply because the music sounds so fantastic in the 5.1 outing. The low end is remarkably full bodied here, but that doesn't add any muddiness or overpowering element to the midrange or high end. Fidelity in both music and dialogue is excellent. Dynamic range is also wide and nuanced.
