In the Shadow of the Moon

 (2007)

In the Shadow of the Moon Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Between 1968 and 1972, nine U.S. spacecraft voyaged to the Moon, and 12 men walked upon its surface. They remain the only human beings to have stood on another world. This chronicle brings together, possibly for the first and last time, the surviving crew members from every single Apollo mission that flew to the Moon; it also allows them to tell their story in their own words. First-hand testimony is interwoven with visual archival material which has been re- mastered from the original NASA film footage--much of it never used before. As a result, this space 'epic' communicates the daring, the danger, the pride, and the promise of this extraordinary era in history when the whole world literally looked up at the United States of America.

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

In the Shadow of the Moon Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Comprised of both high definition video "talking head" interviews and archival material shot on a variety of stocks—displaying varying aspect ratios and levels of damage/image quality—In the Shadow of the Moon's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is nevertheless consistent in what really matters: it faithfully reproduces all of the footage, warts and all, with no unnecessary digital tweaking. While the producers probably could've cleaned up some of the material, they've opted to leave it as it is, and I think this is a wise choice. It adds to the vintage vibe of the film and also keeps the footage free of distracting digital artifacts. The quality of the archival material is all over the place—crisp 35mm, handheld footage shot by the astronauts on 16mm, primitive video from 1960s TV broadcasts—but it all looks faithful to source. And some of it looks absolutely fantastic, particularly the shots of the rockets lifting off and the boosters separating. The entire frame of the image is always shown, even if that means we see bits of dirt and hair stuck in the film gate near the edges of the picture. Of course, you can also expect lots of white flecks, mild scratches, and occasional print damage. The contemporary interview footage is quite sharp—seriously, you can make out every pock and pore on Buzz Aldrin's characteristically craggy face—and skin tones are natural, if a bit intentionally golden. I don't think anyone would have any real complaints about the picture quality here—the vintage footage looks exactly like it's supposed to, and the modern material is crisp and clean.


In the Shadow of the Moon Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Likewise, viewers will have no qualms with the film's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track, which presents the vintage recordings as cleanly as possible and offers up expectedly clear narration from the interviews with the participating astronauts. Some attempt has been made to move certain sounds into the rear speakers—the rapid deployment of parachutes, a P-51 Mustang zipping between channels, hovering helicopters—and these effects are complimentary and unobtrusive. (Meaning, they seem natural and don't stand out awkwardly.) Even the .1 LFE channel gets a few chances to rumble during liftoffs and explosions. The most dynamic and expressive element of the track, though, is Philip Sheppard's excellent score, which combines orchestral Americana—"Amish barn-raising" music, according to director David Sington in his commentary—with more ambient arrangements. (It doesn't, however, hold a candle to Brian Eno's haunting For All Mankind score.) Disappointingly, there are no subtitles whatsoever, even though the back of the case claims English SDH and Spanish options. (Useful for me when I'm digging up quotes for the review, but absolutely essential for viewers who are hard-of-hearing.)
