Hollywood Homicide 4/5

Barry Peterson, who had just shot Dark Blue for Shelton, returned as the DP on Hollywood Homicide. Consistent with the Southern California sunshine—the lively credit sequence is set to "I Love Cali (In the Summertime)" performed by Roscoe—Peterson gives everything a bright, colorful look with good contrast and a minimum of shadow, even in night scenes. Sony has provided Mill Creek with a clean source and a good quality transfer that is detailed and sharp and does not appear to suffer from untoward digital processing to sharpen edges or remove grain. The black levels look right, the contrast doesn't wash out shadow detail, and the colors are appropriately saturated. Although the average bitrate of 19.00 Mbps seems low, I didn't observe any obvious artifacting, probably because long stretches of the film involve conversations with little excess motion in the frame. That, plus the black space created by the 2.40:1 aspect ratio, probably conserved enough overall bandwidth for demanding sequences like the intense car chase (much of it against traffic), the opening club shootout and the final confrontations between the heros and the main bad guys.

For additional screenshots, please see the Hollywood Homicide Blu-ray review.


Hudson Hawk 4/5

The distinguished cinematographer Dante Spinotti (Heat and L.A. Confidential, among many others) shot Hudson Hawk, which may be one reason why the scenes filmed in his native Italy have such an appealing glow (though Spinotti can make just about anything look good). In the film's first act, the veteran DP captures the cool fluorescence of the hip New York Eighties scene, and his lighting of the increasingly daft third act is almost cartoonish.

The master provided by Sony to Mill Creek comes from well-preserved source material with no noticeable damage, and this is one of the better transfers that Sony has outsourced. The image on Mill Creek's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray has detail, texture and grain, but it's a fine, natural grain pattern consistent with the look of a film from the early Nineties. Except for an occasional shot (usually an effects shot), the grain is rarely heavy, even in scenes set at night, where the blacks, gray and shadings of black and gray are accurately rendered. The colors range from the garish decor of Tommy's bar (which appalls Hudson when he enters) to the dingy shades of the ancient castle where the Mayflowers attempt to recreate da Vinci's machine.

If Hudson Hawk were the action film it was ill-advisedly advertised to be, the average bitrate of 21.99 Mbps might seem a little low, but so much of it consists of banter and repartee (both snappy and stupid) that the average seems about right. In any case, compression errors did not intrude.

Hollywood Homicide / Hudson Hawk Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Hollywood Homicide 4/5

The film's original 5.1 track is presented in lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1. It's an effective mix that rises to the big moments, like the panicking crowd when the members of H2OClick are shot in Julius' club and the zooming, careening traffic when Gavilan and Calden take off in pursuit of a suspect through the streets of Beverly Hills (and beyond). Dialogue is clear, dynamic range is wide, and bass extension is deep, which is especially important for the strongly rap-flavored soundtrack that keeps poor Gavilan so off-balance. The instrumental underscore is credited to Alex Wurman, who scored Play It to the Bone for Shelton and recently did the soundtrack for the first season of The Newsroom on HBO.

Hudson Hawk 4/5

According to IMDb, some prints of Hudson Hawk included a soundtrack mixed for the short-lived CDS ("Cinema Digital Sound") multi- channel system, but most filmgoers saw the film in Dolby Surround. That track is used here, encoded as DTS-HD MA 2.0. It's an interesting track, because the sound effects often give the impression of having been mixed for the inhabitants of Roger Rabbit's Toon Town, but it fits with the spirit of the film. The dialogue is generally clear, although there are moments when you can't believe what you just heard. (Example, from two bored security guards as Hudson and Tommy sneak by them: "673 Wongs in the phone book." "Hmmm. Helluva lotta Wong numbers.") The surrounds are used for general ambiance, a few big effects like the gold "machine" and to expand the soundstage for the musical score, which is credited to both co-writer Robert Kraft and Die Hard composer Michael Kamen. The latter's signature is unmistakable.

(Note: Early pressings of this disc reportedly contained a mono 2.0 track for Hudson Hawk. This error was reported to Mill Creek when the disc was first released as a Wal-Mart exclusive, and the error appears to have been corrected by the time the disc was released for general sale.
