Major Dundee Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Note: Screenshots 1-13 are from the Extended Version. Screenshots 14-23 are from the Theatrical Version.

Major Dundee is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.35:1 for both its original theatrical cut as well as the 2005 extended cut restoration. I have to wonder if the masters utilized for this release are from 2005 as well, and curmudgeons may wonder what could have been done with newer technology. The bulk of both of these presentations looks very good indeed, with the same much improved color timing that graced the Special Edition DVD (though flesh tones are a bit on the brown side for my personal taste) as well as better clarity and contrast. There are some anomalies here, however, including some persistent ringing which is quite evident at times (see the screenshot of James Coburn for one especially bad example). Though the restored elements were evidently taken from color separation masters, some of them seem a bit ragged looking when compared to the rest of the film. Still, when compared to the awful looking first releases of this film which were foisted upon the home video market and especially when compared to the atrocious pan and scan broadcast prints that used to show up on television back in the day, seeing Major Dundee now in all of its widescreens splendor is a bit of a revelation. Is it perfect? No, but it's probably the best we're going to get.


Major Dundee Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Major Dundee's extended version features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 accounting of the repurposed 5.1 track that debuted in 2005. This is a rather carefully reconstructed track that doesn't err on "tarting up" the sonic atmosphere so aggressively that it sounds unnatural. Caliendo's score is splayed rather widely across the surrounds, while discrete channelization of foley effects is very smartly handled. Dialogue is cleanly presented and fidelity is excellent. Dynamic range is quite wide. The original theatrical version sports a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track which more than capably recreates the original theatrical experience. Once again fidelity is excellent, though dynamic range is just a tad more muted due to the narrowness of the track.
