Independence Day

 (1996)

Independence Day Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

It is an ordinary summer day. But then, without warning, something very extraordinary happens. Enormous shadows fall across the land. Strange atmospheric phenomena, ominous and mesmerizing, surface around the globe. All eyes turn upward. The question of whether we're alone in the universe has finally been answered. And, in a matter of minutes, the lives of every person across the globe are forever changed. With the fate of our planet at stake, the Fourth of July is about to take on an entirely new meaning. No longer will it be an American holiday. It will be known as the day the entire world fought back. The day we did not go gentle into the good night... The day all of us on planet Earth celebrated our independence day.

Independence Day Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p high definition and in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, Independence Day on Blu-ray sports a very good transfer, but one that also shows the film's age. While detailed and clean, the image isn't as sharp and distinct as I would have hoped, but that is not to say it's bad. Far from it, in fact, when you consider the film is now twelve years old, this is one heck of a good-looking catalogue title. Colors are vivid and natural, looking mostly realistic, regardless of the tint of the image on display. There are several very distinct lighting schemes seen throughout, and each holds up very well in high-definition. Be it the blue glow of the lights of the alien spacecraft, the harsh, bright sunlight of the Nevada desert, the dank interiors of the alien craft, the well-lit White House, or the fluorescent lighting of underground bunkers, the lighting scheme in each of these scenes brings a distinct visual flair to the picture and each appears graceful and true to their source. The level of detail is very good in this one. It fails to live up to some of the best I've seen on the format, but once again, taking the age of the movie into account, this one is darn good. Clarity and depth are solid, as are the black levels. Skin tones appear to be natural and pleasant, and the aliens look appropriately cold, slimy, and unrefined. Perhaps the only negative is that this Blu-ray rendition of the film is of such high quality that several effects shots that have always appeared questionable at best really stand out as über-fake here, notably a scene where Jasmine's dog jumps for safety at the last moment from a fire in a tunnel, or several shots of what is clearly a matte painting, such as a scene inside a hangar with Air Force One parked outside, courtesy of talented special effects wizards. All in all, this is easily the very best that this film has ever looked for the home theater market. I've owned this film on several formats, namely VHS, LaserDisc, and DVD, watched it well over a dozen times, and this edition simply blows them all out of the water. If you are a fan of this film in any way, shape, or form, this transfer is definitely worth an upgrade from any previous edition.


Independence Day Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Simply stated, Independence Day on Blu-ray is a deafening, high-powered listening experience. Anyone interested in what is perhaps the loudest, most powerful track yet on Blu- ray needs to stop reading and hurry out and buy this demo-worthy disc. Still not convinced? You will be after the opening moments of this DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix as bass literally rattles your chest, but cleanly and distinctly, never going for broke and simply sending a signal to the subwoofer to shake and rattle at will. Instead, we get powerful but clean bass, bass that will put the absolute best subwoofers and amplifiers to the test, and by the end of the movie, both will be screaming for mercy and kindly ask that you watch No Reservations ten times in a row, as a way of taking some much needed R&R following the harrowing audio experience delivered by ID4. I wouldn't be surprised if home theater stores across the country and around the world pop in a copy of ID4 for the next several years when they demo subwoofers in their store. The bass is that boisterous, and even if you hate the movie but love a good dead-wakening soundtrack, this one's for you. Bass isn't the only thing this one has going for it. There is a major sound presence in the rear channels throughout, creating a captivating and completely engulfing experience. Music blends into the rears naturally, and effects, of course, zoom and whizz over your shoulder throughout, making for a head-turning and exciting listen. Every sound moves seamlessly from one speaker to the next for a top-flight aural experience, be it the sound of alien or human weaponry, the roar of human jets and the whoosh of alien craft, or long, drawn out explosions. Dialogue is crystal clear, rarely ever lost in the mayhem of the track, and even the subtleties of the track work to create a convincing and enthralling experience. There may be a few other tracks that sound a bit cleaner and more realistic than this one, but if you want a true high-definition, foundation shaking, heart-pounding, no-nonsense, rip-roaring good time of a soundtrack, Independence Day on Blu-ray fits the bill perfectly.
