Lifeboat Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Alfred Hitchcock's Lifeboat arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

Note: The screenshots offered with this review appear in the following order:

1. Lifeboat: 1-19.
2. Bon Voyage: 21-25
3. Aventure Malgache: 26-30

There are rough spots here and there where clarity and contrast have a tendency to fluctuate a bit. Some of the darker scenes early into the film also look a bit soft (see screencapture #1). However, detail is still pleasing, with many of the close-ups looking particularly good (see screencapture #12). Generally speaking, colors are stable - the blacks look rich and well saturated, while the grays and whites are well balanced. Only during the foggy sequences the blacks appear somewhat soft. Furthermore, there are no traces of problematic post-production tinkering (contrast boosting, sharpening, degraining, etc). As a result, while there are some small rough spots, the film still very much looks like a film. Also, there are tiny flecks and scratches popping up here and there, but they are never overly distracting. All in all, this is exactly the type of approach I like to see when old that have not undergone a full-blown restoration transition to Blu-ray: have a raw high-definition transfer on the Blu-ray and let the film shine on its own. A rough diamond is still a diamond. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Lifeboat Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Lifeboat arrives with an English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have also provided optional English SDH subtitles. Bon Voyage and Aventure Malgache arrive with French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 tracks and optional English subtitles.

The English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track has a surprisingly good dynamic amplitude. Obviously, it is unlikely to test the muscles of your audio system, but the sound is well rounded and the dynamic progressions are indeed free of sudden spikes. There are no audio distortions either. The dialog is crisp, stable, and free of problematic background hiss.
