Meatballs

 (1979)

Meatballs Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Bill Murray stars as Tripper, the nutty leader (and trainer) of a motley crew of camp counselors. But Tripper proves to be more than just a wild and wacky leader, as he takes a special interest in Rudy, an insecure camper. Thought for the day: "It Just Doesn't Matter!"

For more about Meatballs and the Meatballs Blu-ray release, see Meatballs Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Bill Murray, Harvey Atkin, Kate Lynch, Russ Banham, Kristine DeBell, Sarah Torgov
Director: Ivan Reitman

Meatballs Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Meatballs is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is one of those "glass half full, glass half empty" transfers whose appeal will depend on viewer expectations as well as a realistic assessment of what the source elements had to offer to begin with. Meatballs was shot on a shoestring budget and its previous home video releases have never looked very good. While there's a reasonable uptick in clarity and especially color saturation here, the simple fact is. . .Meatballs still doesn't look very good. Midrange and far range shots tend to be extremely soft and are literally out of focus some of the time (oddly, in a couple of wide shots in the mess hall, focus is inconsistent throughout the frame). The overall image is in fact fairly soft, though a number of close- ups are really rather nicely sharp with pleasing fine object detail. The best thing about this transfer is the color, which pops really nicely, though reds tend to bloom on occasion, adding to a fuzzy quality. Artifacting is at a minimum, though the film is hampered by low contrast in some of the dimly lit and nighttime scenes, with resultant crush and minimal to nonexistent shadow detail, and the very apparent grain, so redolent of this era of low budgeted film, gets dangerously close to noise levels on occasion. This presentation is certainly not going to set anyone's videophile heart on fire, but it's also not a disaster.


Meatballs Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Meatballs' lossless DTS-HD Master Audio mono mix (delivered via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0) isn't anything to write home about, either, but it's sufficient to render the film's goofy dialogue well enough, and Elmer Bernstein's sweet score also sounds fine (according to the commentary, Bernstein agreed to do the score on spec for a piece of the profits, and considered it one of the best deals he had ever made in his long Hollywood history). The soundtrack has just a tinge of boxiness, especially in some of the voiceovers, courtesy of Tripper's "announcements", which may have been recorded in a different environment than the bulk of the film. Fidelity is fine, if never really commanding, and dynamic range is acceptably wide and varied.
