Midway Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The VC-1 encoded image (2.35:1 aspect ratio) presentation on "Midway" is tricky to dissect, as much of the film employs actual footage from the front lines and other Hollywood productions. Although the raggedy quality is inherent to the source material, clarity on the BD makes the seams stand out. The stock footage is raw and dirty, blown-up and manipulated to match Smight's picture. The rest of the movie looks healthy and relatively undamaged, with slight sharpening to manage grain, though fine detail hasn't been erased -- useful to observe the pained expressions on the cast and enjoy the textures of the period recreation, including assorted military costuming. Shadow detail is occasionally murky, but rarely suffocating, displaying relatively stable, communicative blacks. Colors reveal some freshness with only a mild fade, finding oceanic excursions especially appealing with lighter blues, while uniforms display a secure range of interesting hues. Skintones are represented well, presenting leathery flesh as intended.


Midway Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The 2.1 Sensurround mix is configured as a 5.1 DTS-HD track on the Blu-ray, though there's no surround activity that I could detect. It's a frontal force feature without a center channel, pushed into the left and right with a workable degree of clarity, isolating character interactions with crispness, while the considerable use of dubbing is expectedly artificial and easy to understand. Low-end is the big show here, and while there's a little more heft to roaring engines and bombings, it's not as spectacular as expected, requiring a little manual juicing to get the rumble where it should be. There's no distortion to the track, while scoring is blended satisfactorily, retaining it emphasis without stepping on human elements.
