Monster Brawl Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Monster Brawl was photographed on the Red One digital system by Brendan Uegama, a young cinematographer whose credits to date are principally short films, but who obviously has mastered digital cinema. As presented on Image's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, Uegama's images perfectly replicate the feel of live TV footage during the Monster Brawl sequences, even though he's working with a wider aspect ratio. When the film switches to the "origin" interludes, Uegama adopts a more cinematic shooting style that helps disguise the fact that all of the sets and locations (which are supposed to represent far-flung places) are situated within a few miles of each other.

The image on the Blu-ray is clean, clear and detailed, which doesn't always work in favor of the budget-conscious make-up by the Gore Brothers (Jason and Jeff Derushie). Still, cheesy make-up is part of the great tradition of monster movies, and it does help that the colors for the nighttime Monster Brawl sequences are muted and washed-out—a deliberate choice, as is evident by the stronger colors in some of the origin sequences. Blacks, however, are strong and solid; as illustrated in the extras, the Monster Brawl set was carefully designed to have a sense of endless night surrounding it, and the Blu-ray's image conveys that. Since this is a digitally derived image with no analog stage in the process, high frequency filtering, artificial sharpening or other such tinkering does not appear to have been applied. Compression artifacts were not an issue, as they typically are not with Red One productions.


Monster Brawl Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The audio for Monster Brawl has been well recorded and mixed, but surround effects on the DTS-HD MA 5.1 track are limited. The most obvious example is the reverberating impact of Lance Henriksen's voice, which seems to be everywhere when it speaks. Bass extension is strong and deep, both for effects and for the atmospheric music track by Todor Kobakov. The mixing philosophy seems to have been that, since wrestling is not a subtle sport, the soundtrack should be as "in your face" as possible, and deep bass is the quickest and cheapest way to achieve that effect.

(For some reason, there is an alternate Dolby Digital 5.1 track, at the oddly low bitrate of 320 kbps. If the disc's producers were trying to help people without DTS capability, a higher bitrate would have been preferable. If they were thinking of people playing the disc through TV speakers, a 2.0 track would have made more sense.)
