Hockey great Gordie Howe retired after 25 winning seasons with the Detroit Red Wings. But he realized that retirement just didn’t work for him. When his sons were drafted to the Houston Aeros he came out of retirement to join the team. He was written off by many who thought he was too old to be playing competitively.

Mr. Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Mr. Hockey was shot by James Alfred Menard, another Stargate veteran. Although definitive information about the shooting format was not available, it has all the earmarks of digital photography, which has become the most common format for today's TV productions. The image on ARC Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is typical of capably produced television fare, in that the image is clean, well lit, reasonably detailed and free of noise or distortion. The color palette runs toward the cool end of the spectrum, even in the Houston scenes where everyone talks about the heat but you don't feel it in the image. The film's brief 86-minute running time is easily accommodated on a BD- 25, even with nearly a half hour of HD extras. No artifacts or compression errors were noticeable.

I must add that there are a few sections that use archival video or newsreel footage. These only look as good as the source will allow.


Mr. Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 is a typical TV mix: front-oriented, with sparing use of the surrounds and priority given to dialogue. Even the hockey scenes don't take much advantage of the 5.1 array, keeping the sonic activity in front, including even the cheering crowd. The serviceable score is by James Jandrisch (16 Wishes ).
