Look for a Star

 (2009)

Look for a Star Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Sam (Andy Lau), the most eligible bachelor in town has already divorced three times and finds himself crawling back to the game of love sooner than he expected. Falling in love with Milan (Shu Qi), a part-time poker dealer and a full-time cabaret dancer at a Macau casino, he decided to marry her. While Milan is being groomed into a society woman by experts galore, Sam is starting to have cold feet and signs a prenuptial agreement without consulting Milan. When she is asked to sign the document, she is flabbergasted and leaves him.

For more about Look for a Star and the Look for a Star Blu-ray release, see Look for a Star Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Look for a Star Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Look for a Star arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Hong Kong-based distributors MegaStar (please note that an exact replica of this Blu-ray release is available through US distributors Tai Seng Entertainment).

The basics for this transfer are intact. Contrast is acceptable, clarity adequate and detail mostly stable. The color-scheme is also mostly convincing yellows, reds, blues, greens, whites and blacks are all natural looking. Furthermore, I did spot a few tiny bits of edge-enhancement popping up here and there but, for the most part, they did not affect my viewing experience. This being said, the transfer for Look for a Star appears slightly compressed. For example, during a lot of the nighttime scenes, the video loses its edge. Additionally, some key colors occasionally look slightly desaturated. Still, I doubt it many of you will be disappointed with how Look for a Star looks. For the record, I did not detect any disturbing scratches, debris, dirt, or stains to report in this review. (Note This is a Region-Free Blu-ray release. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Look for a Star Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1, Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1, and Mandarin Dolby Digital 5.1. I opted for the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track and later on did a few random comparisons with the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track for the purpose of this review.

Look for a Star is not a film with an overly aggressive soundtrack and, understandably, the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track is not overly impressive. It certainly gets the job done the dialog is crisp, clear and very easy to follow and the surround channels used adequately but, overall, it is not one that you would remember. Additionally, Chan Kwong Wing's soundtrack blends well with the dialog and I most certainly did not detect any disturbing dropouts, pops, or cracks to report in this review.

The Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track is of good but equally unexceptional quality. During the few scenes that I tested, the dialog was just as crisp and easy to follow as it is on the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track. Frankly, aside from the slightly more potent sound during key scenes (specifically when Andy Lau's character attends the night clubs), I don't think that the Cantonese Dolby TrueHD 7.1 track separates itself that much from the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track. As expected, I did not detect any disturbing dropouts, pops, or cracks to report with the Cantonese Dolby Digital 5.1 track either. Finally, MegaStar have provided optional English, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, the subtitles appear inside the image frame.
