M*A*S*H

 (1970)

M*A*S*H Blu-ray offers solid video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

One of the world's most acclaimed comedies, M*A*S*H focuses on three Korean War Army surgeons brilliantly brought to life by Donald Sutherland, Tom Skerritt and Elliott Gould. Though highly skilled and deeply dedicated, they adopt a hilarious, lunatic lifestyle as an antidote to the tragedies of their Mobile Army Surgical Hospital, and in the process infuriate Army bureaucrats. Robert Duvall, Gary Burghoff and Sally Kellerman co-star as a sanctimonious Major, an other-worldly corporal, and a self-righteous yet lusty nurse.

For more about M*A*S*H and the M*A*S*H Blu-ray release, see M*A*S*H Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Robert Duvall, Tom Skerritt, Elliott Gould, Sally Kellerman, Joann Pflug, Donald Sutherland
Director: Robert Altman

M*A*S*H Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

M*A*S*H touches down on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that looks fairly good for a nearly 40 year-old catalog title. Purists will be glad to know that the original grain structure of the film is intact—there's no hastily applied digital noise reduction here—and apart from a few specks and flecks here and there, the print is in excellent condition. Of course, compared to today's standards, the film looks incredibly soft and somewhat unresolved— especially so during Altman's characteristic long zooms. Altman notes during his commentary track that fog and diffusion filters were often used on the lenses to keep the film from looking too crisp, so the softness is either intentional or the result of slightly off focus-pulling, and not any deficiency in the transfer. There's not much fine detail to be found here in faces or clothing textures, but after seeing the film for so many years in standard definition, the upgrade in resolution is still apparent. M*A*S*H has never been super-saturated, and color-wise, the transfer is spot on, sporting an appropriate Army palette of olive drab and dusty khaki, with the occasional spurts of bright red blood to liven things up. The image also perks up considerably during the football game, with red and blue uniforms popping nicely off the screen. Black levels are appropriately ratcheted through much of the film, preserving details in all but the darkest of shadows and providing contrast that's not too hot and not too cold, i.e., just right. This isn't the most striking catalog restoration I've seen—in reality, it doesn't seem like much has been done at all—but M*A*S*H certainly looks better than ever.

Do note that the 2.40:1 OAR has been cropped down to 2.35:1 here, but the only time you'll really notice is during the initial title card, where the 'M' and 'H' of M*A*S*H are partially out of frame.


M*A*S*H Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

As an audio experience, M*A*S*H definitely shows its age. The film is given a solid DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround track on Blu-ray, but the newly lossless sound can't quite mint a new sonic experience out of dated source materials. Altman's trademark overlapping dialogue has an occasionally muffled and boxy quality, and some of the ADR work is noticeably less than subtle. While the original mono track (which is also included) has been expanded to a 5.1 mix, for all intents and purposes it could be stereo, as there's very limited use of the rear channels. You'll hear some music pumped into the surround speakers from time to time, but I only counted two discrete effects—both the droning of jets panning ever so slightly from one channel to another. The front- heavy presentation can get a little cluttered with the chatter of voices, but this was Altman's intent, and serves as a way to keep audiences actively listening and processing what's going on. Dynamically, the film sounds a bit fuller than in previous incarnations, and even offers up one or two instances of very modest subwoofer use. There's not much to get excited about here, but this DTS-HD MA track does its best considering it's working with original sources that have less-than- pristine fidelity.
