Moonstruck Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Viewers expecting a crisp, eye-popping image will be disappointed, and fans of Moonstruck will be grateful. The film has always had a soft, dreamy, "old world" look that cinematographer David Watkin (Out of Africa) carefully created. Any attempt to sharpen it for contemporary sensibilities would be a travesty. Fortunately, no such attempt has been made. Despite its softness, the image is finely detailed, revealing elements that have not been obvious on prior video versions. In one scene, for example, you can make out a gold-encased tooth in Loretta Castorini's mouth, though whether this belongs to the character or the actress is impossible to say. The worn decor of the Castorini household and the dungeon-like surroundings of Ronny's bakery are visible in a way they haven't been since the film played in theaters. The frequent presence of visible grain attests to the fact that fine detail has not been removed by the pernicious application of filtering.

Black levels are sufficiently strong to give accurate renditions of the tuxedos worn by many of the men attending the opera. In many night scenes, the blacks aren't truly black, but this has less to do with "crushing" than with the fact that nights in a major city are never fully dark. The color scheme of Moonstruck tends toward the warm end of the spectrum, but most hues are muted, so that the occasional flash of vivid color stands out in contrast (e.g., the dress that Cosmo Castorini's mistress wears to the opera, which he reluctantly compliments as being "very . . . bright", or the interior of the liquor store where the proprietess accuses her husband of being "a wolf!").

The source material appears to be in good shape. Overall, while this is not a Blu-ray that will wow recent HD converts looking for crystalline ecstasy, those who appreciate accurate film transfers should be well satisfied.


Moonstruck Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Although the soundtrack is labeled 5.1, it might as well have remained in its original stereo, because there is little rear channel activity. Presented in DTS lossless, the sound is spread evenly across the front soundstage with occasional left and right panning effects. Where the track excels is in its reproduction of tiny details, such as the chirping of Ronny's parakeet during the crucial first conversations between Ronny and Loretta, and the crucial -- no, essential -- musical track that is as much a character in Moonstruck as any human. Whether it's Dean Martin's rendition of "That's Amore!" or key moments from La Bohème (for which the film sparked a national enthusiasm) or Dick Hyman's score knitted together from themes representing each main character, the soundtrack delivers the music with appropriate presence. The characters in Moonstruck may not open their mouths and sing (except for Uncle Raymond), but the emotions on display are the big ones that music is best suited to express.
